Integral Eye Movement Therapy
Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is a psychotherapy tool that utilises simple eye movements to help resolve the issues you are experiencing by reducing unwanted feelings.
Developed by Andrew T. Austin in the United Kingdom, IEMT follows similar principles to Steve and Connirae Andreas' Eye-Movement Integration Therapy and Francine Shapiro's Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. All of these therapies are based on the premise that we can use specific eye movements to change the way in which your brain codes (stores and recalls) memories.
What is the difference between IEMT and EMDR?
Both EMDR and IEMT involves the therapist guiding you to move your eyes in a certain way whilst recalling a memory. The main difference is that EMDR works by changing the way your brain stores (and recalls) the memory of a traumatic event so that it is less disturbing; whereas IEMT works on the root cause of your emotional response to the traumatic event.
What this means in practice is that during EMDR, you will be asked to recall what happened during the traumatic event that you experienced. In contrast, during IEMT, you will be asked to focus on the unwanted feelings rather than the memory itself.
IEMT is effectively used to treat anxiety, anger, emotional blocks, limiting beliefs, phobias, trauma and PTSD.
Change is possible. Change is fast. Change is permanent.
