When a person is involved in a distressing event the brain is unable to process this information as a normal memory. This memory can then be re-experienced as what they saw, heard, smelt, or felt and this can be, intense, discomforting and disturbing. This negative memory will be felt somewhere within the body.

Our visual field holds these memories. Our eyes move upwards to construct or recall images and pictures. Our eyes move to the side to construct or remember sounds and our eyes move downwards to access our internal dialogue or feelings.

I will ask you to hold that memory in your mind while following my hands with your eyes. These eye movements will cover all of your visual fields thus releasing the negative emotions. This allows past traumatic events to be re-processed in a positive beneficial and healthier way.

During EMI you will remain conscious AND in control at all times. EMI cannot be done against your will.

EMI helps with the following:

  • Panic attacks
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Trauma resulting from physical, emotional and sexual abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Addictions: alcohol drugs, obsessive compulsive disorders
  • Distressing memories that cause embarrassment, guilt, shame, sadness or disappointment.
Fear anxiety and stress, such as discomfort with public speaking. Fear of flying, sitting exams etc.
