Working with Loss

Good news story submitted by IEMT Practitioner, Glennda Papworth.

Andrea had no prior experience of Integral Eye Movement Therapy. The problem she presented was a feeling of loss, she wanted to learn techniques to avoid negative feelings related to her father's death and moving back to the UK. She spoke of the stress she was feeling as they had moved back here to be with him and after he had died she wanted to go back home.

We explored the three pillars of depression, using the complex pattern on guilt, regret and shame. Regret was much higher than the other two. However, all three were reduced and regret led to feelings of envy and fear of being stuck.

I introduced the identity elements and noted down the identity pattern and fed this back to her. Andrea spoke of being stuck in the UK where she doesn't want to be and can't see a way forward and its either accept it or keep fighting to get back. After the "lazy eight" movements she was now all around trying to move forward and content. Other changes occurred from being emotional, sad and confused to feeling optimistic and taking a step forward. Also before she was overthinking, she mentioned a barrier, protection, feeling like she cannot be herself, she would put on a front and would like to be more comfortable in front of people to seeing a chink in the barrier and feeling lighter.

We also spoke of the place she wanted to go back to and she had said it was hanging on by her finger to see was observing it and the feelings were less grim. At the end of the session, the client reported feeling different and would let it settle and let me know at the follow-up.


"Glennda's caring and professional manner make her very easy to talk and open up to. I had heard of NLP but not IEMT and was unsure that it would work. I was very pleasantly surprised! It is a straightforward and easy way to change your way of thinking around emotive or painful memories. I found the process easy and relatively pain-free with immediate results. I highly recommend her."

Well done Glenda. And to your client Amanda, who obviously did the right thing in asking for help from you.
