Here I have included some of my Client testimonials as an illustration as to how effective the IEMT model is.....
All I've managed to come up with is wow and amazing!! I'm not sure what you did or how you did it (that's something I would definitely like to learn more about) how can you waving your finger back and forth and talking randomness with me for 2 hours have such a positive impact on my life?
At first I didn't notice any changes, people asked me about it and I just shrugged my shoulders at them, but little things over the last 2 weeks have been different.
1. I'm more
positive, my outlook on life is better
2. I don't feel the need to drown my life away in wine or any alcohol for that matter
3. The trauma of my past, often comes into my thoughts as a memory, and that's all it is, a memory
4. Probably the most different thing I've noticed and this is what made me realise the changes, coming face to face with a certain person from the past last week in the supermarket, I just stood next to them and felt nothing, no anger, shame or guilt. Don't get me wrong, I haven't forgotten the events of my past, but in the past, if I saw them it would lead to a mass of panic, fear and a meltdown resulting in reaching for the bottle to numb the memory, this time, nothing, I just carried on with my day!!
5. I've been having more contact with my mother 🤦😂
6. My fitness and running motivation has well and truly returned, in fact, I write this as I wait patiently in the gym for a treadmill to become free.
So all in all, I'm taking baby steps and one day at a time but I think that's a positive outcome. Thank you so much for whatever it was you did.
"I had Integral Eye Movement therapy with Carl a few months ago, to start with I was very sceptical as I am a qualified counsellor, so for me, as a rule it's not really ethical but I wanted to at least try it and keep an open mind.
When I was Sixteen I was raped by a friend, this left me traumatised, I felt so ashamed, embarrassed and thought that it was something that I must have done, did I encourage him in some way? even though I said no!
Four years later I met the Father of my Daughter, he supported me and made me feel safe and secure, but slowly over time he emotionally broke me down and one night he poured a bottle of whisky down my throat and raped me, the one man that had made me feel better about myself, destroyed me as a person that night, it reinpounded everything all over again and no-one could convince me that it wasn't something that I was doing something to let it happen not once but twice.
Eighteen years on and I still have all these emotions, it has had a massive impact on my life and I'm still single, I've suffered with severe depression over the years, I've spent days in bed just wanting to shut the world out and on occasions I've spent more days in my pyjamas than in day clothes, I've pushed men away, when I felt that they were getting to close.
So how is 15 minutes of concentrating and watching Carl's finger going to change something that I've been carrying for 22 years, and that by no means was trying to belittle all the training that Carl has done, but that's how I felt in my head at the time, but also carrying all of the feelings of shame, I also felt a lot of anger towards my daughters Father, because I trusted him and I thought that if I always felt like that towards him, I would never forget what he had done.
I had my session with Carl which I got very emotional about, you don't have to tell him anything because this is done on your feelings and emotions, but I did tell him because I wanted him to know why I was such a emotional puddle on the floor, when Carl had finished I had to reflect and remember, I really had to think about it, it was like a distant memory, the only way I could describe it was almost as if it had happened to someone else, but there was no emotion at all, I felt quite drained after because I had brought all of my feelings and emotions to the for, by reliving the memory, over the next few days I kept trying to remember how it felt, but again I still felt detached.
I'm now a few months down the line and I have to say I thought my feelings would return, but I'm so pleased to say that they haven't and I can now talk about it, like I would if I was having an everyday conversation, and more recently I've had to have contact with my Daughters Father, which has always resulted in me getting very angry and emotional after the phone calls, but now there's nothing. I scan still remember everything that he did to me, it's just a distant memory.
I'm so grateful to Carl, because I no longer have the weight of it all around my neck, plus I really do feel that I'm now ready to let someone into my life and finally I can put the past where it belongs, Integral Eye Movement Therapy is without a shadow of a doubt the way forward. Thanks Carl..... Z, Lincoln
I'd like to thank Carl for his help and support with the therapy during a very bad time in my life. He was aware that I had been abused as a child and for many years did not speak out, but with his help and support I got through the trial in court, which led to my abuser getting a 6 year prison sentence. Thanks again carl.... Kerrie Smith, Lincoln
Oliver ward of Lincoln had been out of the Army for 9 years when he saw me for Post traumatic stress disorder, This is his testimonial... "I'd been through a lot before, during and after my discharge from the Grenadier Guards. And if it wasn't for Carl, I still wouldn't know that my problems started in my childhood. I was literally at the bottom of my life when it was suggested that i try what at the time seemed a strange therapy- following a finger with your eyes. The first session was very emotional on many levels, making me cry and getting it all out in the open. But I felt Carl was taking out all the negativity and fixing me like a puzzle. Its helped with my anger, anxiety, stress, nightmares, flashbacks and emotions. Now its even changed my lifestyle-because I'm now working steadily after losing umpteen jobs through my troubles. So I think if it can work for me, it can work for so many other people".
I have seen subconsciouschange on the internet, and was very drawn to it the more i read. You see i have suffered with depression for many years which is sort of under control... My main problem was my anxiety i was suffering with as many things had happened over the last few years i didnt know what was happening to me just before christmas. Every morning i dreaded waking up as i knew what the day would bring and there was nothing i could do. I would wake up in a panic and it would last on and off all day. After reading alot about how it works and how it has helped so many people i thought i have to give it a go i cant carry on the way i was and the tablets the doctor gave me wasnt working at all. I contacted Carl and explained what i was going through and made an appointment to see him. Carl was so friendly and i was so relaxed with him straight away even though my anxiety was bad. We first went through everything and found myself totally opening up to him. After about 2 hours i felt not as panicky and the anxiety was still there but not as severe as it was when i came to him. When i left i thought this hasnt worked Its not gone what do i do now. Carl kept checking on me and after about a week i started to notice the mornings were getting easier, about a week later i was back to the old me like a cloud had been lifted off me, my heart didnt race when i woke and i didnt have any feelings of panic i couldnt believe it, Its like they say dont knock it till you try it. How its works i dont know, but it has changed my life. I cant thank Carl enough for helping me, i never thought my anxiety would go and that i would have to live with it for ever. My life is so much better and my family are happier that the old me is back, even my children have noticed how i have changed a lot more calmer. I would say to anyone suffering in life go and see Carl he can change your life you dont have to suffer. Thank You Carl..........

I went to see Carl, after I had suffered from Health Anxiety for around 2 years. I was nervous about going to see Carl as I didn't no what to expect and I didn't want to sound silly explaining all the things that I have been worrying about. He made me feel at ease, and totally relaxed I didn't feel silly at all telling him what I had been worrying about. I spent an hour and a half with Carl, and after we were finished I felt a lot different within myself totally relaxed and like my mind had been cleared of all the things I worried about. I 100% recommend anyone to go to Carl as he is fantastic and really good at what he does. I feel a huge difference and I only had one session.
Thanks again Carl for understanding and helping me with my anxiety.
Sophie Griffin from Lincoln
have suffered for years with anxiety and while I could manage this in
my day to day life, travelling anywhere became a major issue to the
point where I dreaded holidays or anytime away from home. Flying was a
particular nightmare! I was unable to sleep in the weeks leading up to
the flight, an absolute mess the night before and catatonic In the
airport. I needed diazepam just to get on to the plane and then became
hysterical on take off!
Carl came to see me in the comfort of my own home. He put me at ease straight away and after a chat we began the treatment. In a very short while my anxiety levels had decreased. Just thinking about flying made my palms sweaty and my stomach turn, however after less than an hour with Carl these physical symptoms had disappeared.
I saw Carl in March of this year (2012), and in April I flew for 7 hours to Boston, USA. I actually enjoyed my flight! The difference this treatment has made to my life is incredible. I am much more relaxed about everything and instead of dreading holidays I am busy planning a family trip to Australia.
This treatment is quick, painless and extremely effective and I would recommend Carl to anyone! J.E Lincoln

I have lived with Depression for a long time now and also have to
balance this with physical health problems such as sleep apnea and
In June 2013 I was offered a free session of IEM Therapy and I hoped that some change would occur.
Carl, the therapist, came to my home and spent two hours chatting about me and what I hoped to achieve out of the session. At various points throughout the session I then experienced the eye movement therapy which differed greatly from any previous therapies I have experienced in that I did not have to disclose any deeply personal experiences, just think about how they made me feel whilst undergoing the therapy. This was important to me and made me feel at ease as I find it difficult to verbalise my thoughts.
Before the end of the session I felt less stressed and more relaxed. Over the next few days I noticed a big change in the way I was thinking, I was engaging my brain before opening my mouth. Friends, family and colleagues weren’t stressing me out as much as they had been and I was thinking a lot more about what I was doing. The biggest change I noticed was a difference in the way I felt about a traumatic event that had happened eighteen months ago. I can now look back and accept those events without an overwhelming feeling of regret and thoughts of what might have happened. This has allowed me to move forward with my life and make plans for the future.
I went to see Carl after one of my friends had been to see him and I had seen how much he had seemed to of changed their lives , I must admit my 1st thoughts were not very positive , I mean come on ??? how can waving a finger about in front of a persons eyes change their lives ? Me of all people ,You're having a laugh .
But then I thought about it, What did I have to lose after suffering years and years of panic attacks .We are not talking just the odd one here and there but multiple ones daily often back to back attacks .And it was not like I had not tried just about every thing possible . I had spent hours upon hours trawling the internet reading forums in hope of finding that miracle cure just to be disappointed time and time again .
So I bit the bullet and gave him a call I really had nothing to lose .The session went ok and I did feel better than I had with other things I had tried in the past .But did not feel completely free of my attacks so I felt a bit deflated that this is how life was just going to be .
What made Carl stand out from the other things I'd tried in the past was his regular contact afterwards to see how I was and his genuine concern . After chatting to him although I did feel a bit better he seemed disappointed with my progress and asked if I would like to have another session as it seemed we had only just scratched the surface and he felt he could do more .
I agreed to a second session as Carl seemed so positive and I'm really glad I did as the second session threw up things I'd totally put to the back of my mind that turned out to be the root of my attacks . I'm now feeling positive with my ongoing progress and feel like I have a knew lease of life thanks to Carl .

I have just had an IEMT session with Carl and he has helped me realise why I have always pushed people away all my life, always keeping friends and family at arms length, ending relationships quickly before they got too close thinking that they would have the power to hurt me. And if they didn't match up to my expectations I would be unforgiving and freeze them out. Stemming from when I was a 5 year old and was bullied and left out and something inside me screamed, 'Its best to be on my own'. It has impacted every relationship I have had, even with my daughter I have noticed the same pattern emerging if she misbehaves a part of me shuts her out. Carl helped me to identify this and now I have the awareness I can change it and let people become closer and lean on other people more. I am not an island and I realise that now! Thank you Carl :-) Lucie from Lincoln
