I am greatly looking forward to coming to London again to share Eye Movement Integration Plus. This is the ‘basic’ eye movement integration with some additions using ‘humour’ and interspersed breathing techniques because using conscious resources aids in the reformatting of neural pathways.
There is new material this year which includes using eye focal length ( bell curve ) and also two very new developments which are noticing and ‘smoothing’ non-eye-movement deviations. A simple neuro-physiological guide to the ‘stress response’ and how this translates to a large majority of client conditions is part of the course.
EMIPlus is very easy to learn. This course is predominantly about practice and you finding your own way to implement this.
“You will be expertly guided in the use of this powerful Eye Movement technique and will get to experience it for yourself too, often clearing so much of our own ‘stuff’ as we are learning to help our clients!
I can honestly say that EMI Plus has transformed my therapy practice in giving me this new way of working with trauma and so much more. The beauty of it is that it can be completely content-free and can totally transform the lives of those you work with. This training really is a must for any therapist, coach, counsellor or health worker who wants the absolute best for their clients.” – Cathy Simmons
This years London training takes place in Regent University.

In the world of Eye Movement therapies there is one distinct aspect all recognise. When a clients eye doesn’t follow the fingers the protocol is to ‘smooth’.
I want to offer two new protocols in addition to the ‘smooth’ that I have presented during the EMI+ training in Edinburgh this last weekend. I have been exploring and utilising this for a long time and have found this can make a difference.
- When there is a facial muscle asymmetry that is ‘regular’ during any linkage pattern ( lines, curves and circles … whatever ) smooth it as you would an eye deviation.
- When there is a facial muscle symmetry ( like eyes popping open, smile etc ) that is ‘regular’ during any linkage pattern ( lines, curves and circles … whatever ) smooth it as you would an eye deviation.
EMIPlus is coming back to Scotland and is sponsored by my good friend Marion Robb of Conscious Choice Hypnotherapy.

EMIPlus is an evolving field. Here are some new additions for you to explore as you use the process tools to help your clients move forward from all kinds of trauma and physical and emotional pain.
There are several people exploring and developing the ‘Bell Curve’ and ‘3×3 matrix’ techniques and this is great to know. So far the practice and ‘research’ seems to correlate well with the anticipated results in relation to standard sub-modality shifts ( distance, direction and location ) in changing focus, re-orientation in time ( past / present / future ) and potentially some other stuff which I don’t fully understand yet.
Here is something new for your consideration and exploration.
Parts Work and EMIPlus
Many of us are familiar with the concept of using parts, as metaphorical entities, in our work with clients. This is an idea I have to further develop EMIPlus using a kind of content free and unconscious re-organisation of a part or entity that is responsible for some particular undesired behaviour or symptom. If you try this I will love your feedback at both a content and process level.
So here is my idea. The frame is we are not trying to do a standard parts integration. We are going for a parts sublimation. That is valuing each ‘competing’ part as an individual behaviour / intention or whatever frame works for you. There will of course be some or many instances where the problem behaviour has inherent value.
The idea is to have an outside perspective of both the ‘problem part’ by nature of the perspective of the conscious mind and the part that is ‘doing the behaviour’ by way of unconscious. By bringing the two seemingly opposing parts into the open – that is a representation by way of a feeling and then into the visual space as two symbols ( this is inherently shamanistic / metaphoric ) and using a variety of linkage patterns to link the two in visual space. The linkage in visual space of the two metaphoric representations ( linked to feelings ) is sublimated.
If this is not so clear get in touch and I will do my best to explain the process I have outlined below.
- Access the imaginary or real part that is responsible for the behaviour that is problematic. Notice where this is felt most in the body. Feel this and welcome this. Now here is a distinction.
- If the feeling is anything that is deemed to be uncomfortable or negative, notice where this is. If the feeling is comfortable, notice where this is. We are identifying the ‘competing parts’.
- Whatever feeling you have identified in part 2. We want to identify the opposite part as a feeling. So if you have identified a negative feeling you want to identify the complement feeling and this is “so if this feeling / behaviour was gone, what will you feel and where is this feeling?”. If the feeling is positive ask “so when you have the problem and you know it, where is that feeling?”. The idea is to identify complements and more importantly locations in the body of the two opposing expressions. OK.
- Having identified two opposing feelings ask your client to externalise those feelings as places in their visual space. Two different and well differentiated points in their visual space outside their body.
- Use any EMI linkage ( lines, spirals, wiggles ) between the two points. And at each point invoke, illicit and enhance the feeling ( clients words ) while you move your finger or pointer in ways that connect the representations in visual space. My sense is this is going to be a slow movement approach but I may be very wrong.
- Continue until something profound and meaningful happens.
This is an experimental version of a wonderful technique I learned from Steve Gilligan using his Generative Hypnosis or as I call this Parts Sublimation. Each part is highly valued and the moving in between, as an observer, seeing both sides and valuing both sides is priceless. you can watch this as a hypnosis process here. I am proposing a similar methodology with a very different process.
If you are developing the concept please do get back and share your results and experience as this will be massively valuable in developing new process of working in very inclusive ways that really could be life enhancing and changing.
My sincere thanks and warm wishes
Eye Movement Integration Plus ( EMIPlus ) is a simple to learn and highly effective way to assist people move through and resolve various aspects of traumatic experiences. Each two day workshop is a complete and thorough way to learn how to use EMIPlus.
The next workshop in EMIPlus Trauma Resolution takes place in Newcastle upon Tyne on 8-9 March 2014. There are 18 places available for this training and the cost of the two days is £90.
EMIPlus Trauma Resolution Skills workshop offers a virtually content free way to help overcome many aspects of traumatic exposures. This means traumatised people really do not need to divulge, talk about, and re-enact aspects of deeply disturbing situations in order to move on and let them go.
Not being required to talk about trauma in detail may be surprising for some change professionals to fully appreciate depending on which ‘therapy model’ is being followed. The rationale here being to ’cause’, via questioning and discussion, as little distress to your clients as possible and help your clients recover more fully faster.
This workshop in EMIPlus Trauma Resolutions Skills is ideally suited for anyone helping people overcome debilitating traumas and all of us in the helping professions :
- Doctors, Nurses and Triage Professionals
- Body Workers
The two days will focus on learning how to competently use the EMIPlus techniques as well as gaining a working knowledge of the Stress Response and the relationships with traumatic imprints.
There are 18 places currently available for this training. Excellent value at ONLY £90 for two full days experiential training.
