IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy)

What is IEMT?

Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is a rapid change work procedure 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.

IEMT works on ‘normalising’ bad memories surrounding particular negative and unwanted emotions which enables barriers to be removed.  This enables you to then move forward with your life.  

Imagine looking out of a permanently dirty window, you will always see everything beyond that window in an unclear, unfocused way.  IEMT removes the ‘dirt’ from the window, so you can see clearly ahead.

It is a content free way of working, so you do not necessarily have to explain, or go over and over your problem.

What can IEMT be used for?

IEMT is an excellent tool for dealing with a wide range of emotional issues. It is particularly effective in dealing with:

 Stress and Anxiety

 Reducing the impact of negative experiences


 Flashbacks

 Insomnia

 Feelings of  anger guilt, regret and remorse

 Fears and phobias

 Dealing with overwhelm

 Panic attacks

 Overcoming long term identity issues such as divorce and redundancy

 Improving productivity

 Sexual related issues

 Confidence and self-esteem issues

IEMT can be used for children’s issues, especially anxiety related.  

Two or three, one hourly sessions are required, to be booked approximately 7 days apart.

“I visited Kay on 2 occasions and had 2 Sessions with her. The 1st session we worked on some disturbing memories from childhood to current events in my life, I couldn’t believe that after carrying these memories for so long most of them were transformed in an instant or disappeared it was surreal but very emotional too some I couldn’t remember which was great!!! Now when I think of the memories that I could remember they are more positive. I would thoroughly recommend Kay especially if your suffering from severe trauma and PTSD these limit your life and health.” Joanne, Gainsborough.

“I would just like to say I was very sceptical about therapy, I’ve been struggling for so long, but when Kay offered to do some IEMT I thought why not give it a go.  I was very nervous but Kay calmed me and my anxiety started to disappear slowly.  We began the session and I started to get upset, thinking of my problems and by the end of the session I didn’t seem to feel any different.  I left and went home.  Now I need to be honest, I woke up the next day and felt different, I can’t say how but it seems to get better each day, I can’t understand how it’s worked but it did!  It’s definitely helped me and I can’t thank Kay enough.”  Tina, Mansfield.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I’ve really struggled to write this review, because I can’t find the words to describe how huge the positive impact this therapy as made to my life, in all aspects. I suffered my whole life with Emetophobia (phobia of vomit) and I’ve tried so many therapies, NHS and private, with varying results. But they all kept my phobia in the present, making me talk about my anxieties & constantly question my thought processes. I had IEMT with Kay and was very dubious. Hopeful but not too optimistic. I can’t believe that after just two sessions I am a really different person. The change has been notable for others to see, especially my immediate family. Kay made me feel totally comfortable, explained everything clearly and I didn’t have to rip my heart out for her to dissect before we got down to the actual therapy. IEMT has removed so much anxiety that for the first time in so long I can now actually relax and unwind. It’s almost a novelty to me after living with constant, low level anxiety that would ramp up to blind panic levels at the smallest of triggers. I can not recommend Kay enough. I honestly feel like she has given me so much more than I could ever have expected in regards to peace of mind, self esteem and positivity that I am capable, worthy and deserving of a life anxiety free. I find I’m more sociable, confident & happy in general. Kay removed my fear and anxiety, then it was replaced with all the good stuff, that leaves you happy to start moving on with your life without the blockages of the past! Thank you, Kay ❤️  Hellen – Mansfield
