IEMT is rapid change process that can be used with great effect as content free tool for dealing with trauma and other negative emotions. It can also be used as a generative tool for identity level change.

IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy):

  • Is a model built around addressing and resolving The 5 Patterns of Chronicity
  • Has applications in resolving PTSD
  • Minimal discomfort in the process as it does not involve traumatic imagery
  • Creates kinaesthetic change by addressing imprints of emotion
  • Creates change in self concept by addressing imprints of identity
  • Uses eye movement as the dominant mechanism for change

Prior qualification is not necessary for training in IEMT

Developed from an original idea from Steve and Connirae Andreas by Andrew T. Austin.


If you are a coach, counsellor, therapist, or anyone interested in helping people, and want to:

  • Enhance your ability to quickly help people with negative emotions and trauma
  • Have tools to support people to release unhelpful identity and better reach their goals?
  • Achieve change where other interventions have failed?
  • Become a certified Practitioner, with a presence on the IEMT website?

Then this might be the training for you.


Course style:  The course will consist of theory input linking IEMT to brain physiology, explanations, and plenty of opportunities for practice.

Trainer:  Alan Johnson a well experienced trainer of NLP and a certified IEMT trainer. He is passionately interested in the contribution NLP and IEMT can make towards personal or professional change work.

On day one you will discover how to use the eye movements in conjunction with IEMT patterns to address emotional imprints.
On day two, ways of working with issues relating to identity and ways of being will be explored.

Specific content includes:

Day 1

  • Eye Movement and 3-D Accessing Cues
  • 5 ‘stuckness’ patterns
  • IEMT Patterns for simple and complex change

Day 5

  • Introduction to Structure of Identity
  • The IEMT Identity Patterns
  • Applications for major ‘stuckness’ including PTSD

IEMT is about challenging and changing ‘stuckness’ or the Patterns of Chronicity.

These are 5 primary patterns that appear common to many ‘stuck’ clients with, or without a history of trauma.

These five patterns are:

1. Three Stage Abreaction Process

A pattern of escalating emotional behaviour in order to attempt to create change in the external environment and in other people.

2. The Great Big, “What if…” Question

The use of a single counter-example that sabotages and counteracts any therapeutic generalisation.

3. The Maybe Man/ Woman Phenomena

The Maybe Man/ Woman is uncertain of their own experience and this leaks out into language. By remaining uncertain and without precision he does not commit to his genuine experience or to his identity and thus inadvertently sabotages effective therapy.

4. Testing for Existence of The Problem Rather Than Testing for Change

Even though 99% improvement might be made, if the person with chronicity is able to locate just 1% of the problem existing, this will generally be seen as representative of 100% of the problem existing.

5. Being “At Effect” rather than being “At Cause”

By being “at effect” the person experiences emotional problems happening to them, rather than being something that happens because of them.

A person “at effect” will seek ‘treatment’ rather than seek ‘change’.

  • The course was great; I have excellent understanding of my XXlynch pinXX I worked on my personal issue in a content-free way. Something that I have carried around for over 26 years has gone.

    I will be able to use the training with service users and staff alike. Thank you.

  • I would recommend the IEMT to anybody considering the course, as it really does work & shifts stuff in such a short space of time.

    I found Alan explained things at a level that could be easily understood.

  • The experiential learning was superb. The trainer delivered the content in a relaxed learning style which, for me, ensured a high level of learning. To describe the benefits briefly would not do justice to the amount of learning I have experienced throughout the course. The practical usefulness of the skills and techniques will be used in every aspect of my life (personal, professional and relationships).

  • I came to the course with a sceptical outlook as to the benefits to me of NLP. I go away convinced of the real life benefits and practical implementations for it.
