IEMT is reportedly a useful adjunctive to other therapeutic models and can be used in many scenarios where other techniques and approaches have failed or are unsuitable. The aim of the IEMT model is primarily to address undesired emotional and identity imprints, enabling a "freeing up" of conscious resources and placing the person more in the present time both psychological and emotionally.
Too many contemporary therapeutic approaches depend upon the verbal sophistication of the client and their ability to articulate "feelings". IEMT does not require the client to articulate their "feelings" and instead simply requires them to consciously identify the feeling they want to change.
Practitioners trained in the technique have reported that even the most resistant emotional problems have been quickly resolved, usually in a single session.
The method is especially useful in teenagers and client groups prone to be non-articulate about their emotional states and problems for which they are seeking help.
Problems most often resolved with IEMT. are those issues where the person is somehow "stuck in their past." Guilt, shame and blame can be resolved with IEMT. Identity beliefs and self esteem issues such as, "I am no good," "I am clumsy" and so forth can also rapidly addressed and resolved using the methodology. As such IEMT can be an excellent adjunctive to other remedial psychotherapies to coaches and trainers specialising in success coaching and other generative changeworks.
