What is Integral Eye Movement Therapy?

Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is a brief therapy that utilises simple eye movements and questioning techniques to change a particular thought pattern that may be problematic for you.

IEMT techniques help to create change by rapidly reducing unwanted feelings to help you to resolve issues. Moving our eyes in certain ways appears to link to the part of the brain that stores our memories and emotions. This can lead to rapid release and relief.


IEMT can also show you why you may repeat unwanted behaviours and how to deal with this without the need for digging into the past.

Unlike many psychological therapeutic processes, IEMT does not require you to disclose lots of details about your experience or give details about troublesome events.

Is IEMT the same as EMDR?

No. Both models use eye movements but in practice that is where the similarity ends.EMDR is a model used mainly by licenced medical professionals such as psychologists and psychiatrists.
