Eye  Movement Technique (EMT)
– a simplified form of EMDR

A talk by Patrick Browning

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic process that has helped hundreds of thousands of people find relief from a  wide range of emotional and personal problems.

It is a form of "eye movement therapy" which is intended to treat anxiety, stress, and  trauma.

The approach was developed by Francine Shapiro to resolve symptoms resulting  from exposure to a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape.

At the James Braid Society's February 2008 meeting the theory and practice of these techniques were explained by Patrick Browning after which members were invited to practice Eye Movement Technique themselves,

Clinical  trials have demonstrated EMDR's efficacy in the treatment of  post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In some studies it has been shown  to be equivalent to cognitive behavioural and exposure therapies.

Eye  Movement Technique (EMT) is a simplified form of EMDR developed by Dr Fred  Friedberg.

In the title of his book Friedberg describes it as being “for  Emotional Healing” and it can be used for many of the issues which are presented to hypnotherapists.

Moreover, like self hypnosis, it can be  taught to clients so that they can help themselves.

This is a very useful  technique which can be included alongside hypnosis in any  session.

Patrick  teaches Eye Movement Therapies at the Institute of Clinical  Hypnosis.
