IEMT Practitioner Training FAQs
Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is a developing area rapid 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 do?" 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.
IEMT is not the grand unified theory of therapy and change work and is still a developing model, but has proven to be 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.
Such misconceptions have been widely accepted by mainstream psychiatry and psychotherapy as an operating belief of NLP and related disciplines.
And as a result, it is common for research papers to be written about such eye movements as a way of disproving the claims of the entire field of NLP. Yet of course, such claims for eye movements are not made by anyone who understands NLP correctly.
Meanwhile, in the specific application of trauma recovery and post traumatic stress disorders experience readily shows that application of specific eye movement therapies is particularly effective with regards to intrusive imagery and "flashback" phenomena.
Essentially, the method involves holding the problematic imagery in mind whilst the eyes are moved in different directions.
The result of this is often that the imagery loses its emotional impact and becomes far less disturbing. The sometimes effective therapeutic model of EMDR is built on this principle.
Integral Eye Movement Technique (IEMT) developed out of these models following the observation of a number of neurological phenomena that occur during the eye movements at the point that the problematic imagery changed its emotional coding.
Then there was the development of a specific set of applications of this phenomenon that enabled IEMT to be applied to the areas of neurological imprints – specifically, emotional imprints and imprints of identity.
Emotional imprinting occurs when a person lays down a new kinesthetic response to an experience. This teaches the person how to feel about certain things.
For example, how many of us when told by the boss that he'd "like a word" in his office immediately feel like a school child about to be told off. This is an emotional imprint in action.
IEMT addresses and resolves the question, "how did this person learn to feel this way about this thing?"
Identity imprinting occurs during lifelong development and is constantly evolving and changing. Many aspects of identity are attributed and occur neurologically as a feedback response to the environment.
An example of this is the production worker who yesterday was "one of the boys" and today, following promotion to lower management, is now officially an enemy to his former friends and colleagues.
Other "deeper" aspects of identity are more permanent and are "feed-forward" into the environment. These are the aspects of identity that tend to occur in all contexts, with some being more resilient than others. Examples of this are gender identity, identity as a father/mother, brother/sister and so forth.
Thus, IEMT also addresses the issue of, "how did this person learn to be this way?"
In some cases, the person can adopt aspects of identity that can be problematic. For example, an emotional imprint might be, "I feel unhappy" whilst and identity imprint might be, "I am an unhappy person" or even, "I am a depressive."
By specifically addressing the identity imprint this enables the therapist to by- pass the beliefs that often support the undesired identity such as, "I cannot do that because I am a depressive" and so forth.
IEMT is a proposed brief therapy and an evolving field that enables a core state change in minimal time.
IEMT is an excellent tool for dealing with a wide range of emotional issues.
It is particularly effective in dealing with:
Length: 2 days (approximately 14 hours in total)
Prerequisites: no prior experience or training is required. It is open to all.
Who it is training suitable for: The course is open to anyone. Generally we get two typed of people who attend; those who are involved in therapy/coaching, and those who just want to work on themselves.
IEMT works very well when used in conjunction with other therapy models such as Hypnotherapy and all forms of coaching.

After the 2 day training, attendees are required to work with 2 non-paying people to create case studies.
The case studies will be evaluated by the trainer and if the student has demonstrated sufficient competency using IEMT then they will be recommended to the Association of IEMT.
Attendees have a time limit of 6 months to complete both case studies. Failure to complete the case studies in this time frame will require the attendee to attend a refresher course (at a heavily discounted rate).
Upon completion of the case studies and joining the Association of IEMT (a small annual fee applies) you will be sent your “Practitioner of IEMT Certification.”
You will also be able to be listed as practitioner on the Association of IEMT website and use the appropriate logos.
For existing therapists, and with certain insurers, you will be able to add IEMT onto your policy.
For those who are new to therapy, you will be able to gain public liability and indemnity insurance.
