Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is a brief therapy that uses simple eye movements and questioning techniques to change a specific thought pattern that may be challenging for you.
Moving our eyes in certain ways appears to link to the part of the brain that stores our memories, emotions and trauma. It can be particularly supportive in easing post traumatic stress.
IEMT techniques help create change by rapidly minimising unwanted feelings to help resolve issues. It can also show you why you may repeat unwanted behaviours and how to deal with this without the need for digging up the past.
Unlike many therapeutic processes IEMT does not require you to disclose lots of details about your experience or give information about difficult events.
"I saw Laura for IEMT to resolve PTSD being triggered by wearing a face mask. Working in the healthcare industry means wearing PPE is an absolute must. I wanted to be able to wear a mask shopping and at work.
I was signed off work for a couple of weeks and avoided the supermarket and anywhere public. I suffered horrendous flashbacks as soon as a mask covered my face.
In one session Laura combined her skills of IEMT and hypnotherapy - I left the session laughing whilst wearing my mask! In the 25 minute journey home I didn’t even realise I was still wearing a mask until I checked in the mirror before getting out of the car for my first food shop in weeks.
I wore a massive smile underneath my mask whilst out shopping and returned back to work the following week. It all feels in the very distant past now.
In one hour Laura helped me to completely resolve my issue and reclaim my crown after trauma. I can’t recommend this lady enough. Thank you Laura."
