Integral Eye Movement Technique (IEMT) is a developing area brief change work that explores the area of undesired emotions and our ways of being. The process explores the question, "How did we learn to feel the way that we feel?" and opens up the possibility of creating the appropriate change in our emotional lives.
By teaching resources and skills inside the problem state, IEMT appears to bring the client more into the present moment and enables them to better stay out of past negative experiences.
Practitioners consistently report that IEMT has created change in their clients where no other approach has worked previously.
This extraordinary training course is divided into two halves. On day one participants discover how to use the eye movements in conjunction with the IEMT algorithms to address emotional imprints, and on day two, we explore issues relating to identity and ways of being.
Integral Eye Movement Therapy was originally developed by Andrew T. Austin based on the original work by Connirae and Steve Andreas and has been taught internationally in the USA, Israel, England, Poland and India.
For the practitioner, IEMT is about precise calibration to the client. Unlike other treatments involving eye movements, with this model the eye movements are neither random nor simply a repetitive left and right movement in the hope that change will occur. The training provides the tools for the practitioner to precisely calibrate which axis through which to move the eyes enabling the exploration work to occur with precision and at a remarkable speed.
IEMT is not the grand unified theory of therapy and change work and is still a developing model, but is a very useful adjunctive for the trained therapists and when used in the right hands can provide an excellent remedial tool for emotional change and a generative tool for identity change. Practitioners are reporting that IEMT enables excellent results where previously a good outcome might have appeared improbable.
"I loved the I.E.M.T training in New York. This process is what every Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner or counselor needs to do change work with their clients. It has been less than a week and I'm using the process with my clients. I just got a call from one thanking me for how amazing she feels. "Unstuck and smiling all day" are her words. I.E.M.T makes change work almost instant - in a matter of minutes. It is measurable and you can see results right then. Most importantly, your client knows it is working. Andy's lectures are entertaining and real. He gives real people examples that help guide you on the application of this method. You not only learn I.E.M.T, but also how to apply simple timelines to address problems and forward pace them to positive outcomes. Even if you are not NLP trained, you learn to catch the meanings in the language your client speaks, and how to use that in your change work. I came to get a tool that will work with most clients and I left with it and much more. Cool Stuff! Don't miss this training. If you can't travel, be sure and get it on DVD when available. Priceless!"
