A Day on Healing Trauma - Part 2


To book your ticket you must click here https://bit.ly/3BEK2BH


A full day of talks exploring mind, body and brain approaches to healing from trauma.

Trauma is at the root cause of many of the mental health problems we face today.

Research from The University of Liverpool has found that traumatic life events are the single biggest cause of anxiety and depression.

And with one in three adults in the UK reporting experiencing a traumatic event at least once in their lifetime, it’s a lot more widespread than we commonly think.

Until recently, our understanding of psychological trauma was limited.

We thought it was something we could ‘get over’, and eventually move on from.

But new developments in the fields of neuroscience, developmental psychopathology, and interpersonal neurobiology have revealed that trauma causes actual physiological changes in the brain and body. It alters the brain’s alarm system and increases stress hormone activity, causing physical and emotional problems long after the event has taken place.

The good news is - advances in our knowledge about the basic processes that underlie trauma, have led to the development of innovative treatments that can help us heal, and move on with our lives.


In this series of talks, we’ll explore three of these approaches, including:

Healing Trauma with Yoga; How trauma gets ‘trapped’ in the body, causing feelings of alienation and dissociation from our bodies long after the event has taken place, and how Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY) can help us reconnect and restore the mind-body connection, so we experience more vitality, wellbeing and connection in everyday life – Dr Kathie Overeem, Ph.D.


Schema Therapy & Trauma; Why it’s more helpful to think about trauma as existing on a spectrum, rather than the narrow diagnostic definition that is commonly used, how schema therapy offers a warm, compassionate and highly effective approach to treat even the most severe and enduring trauma, and how it can be applied to help clients heal, and move on with their lives – Dan Roberts


Healing Intergenerational Trauma; the growing body of evidence demonstrating how collective traumas such as oppression, war and immigration are passed onto subsequent generations, the psychological effects of trans-generational trauma, how to know if you (or a client) is experiencing it, and how we can most effectively heal, and interrupt the transmission of trauma to the next generation – Dr Karen Alter-Reid, Ph.D.

You’ll learn how these unique insights can benefit your own life, but also your ability to help others too.

IEMT Practitioner Training with Matt Kendall



What is IEMT?

IEMT is an incredibly powerful and useful changework technique that should be in every therapist’s tool kit.

Integral Eye Movement Technique (IEMT) is a developing area brief change work that explores the area of undesired emotions and our ways of being. The process explores the question, "How did we learn to feel the way that we feel?" and opens up the possibility of creating the appropriate change in our emotional lives.

By teaching resources and skills inside the problem state, IEMT appears to bring the client more into the present moment and enables them to better stay out of past negative experiences.

Practitioners consistently report that IEMT has created change in their clients where no other approach has worked previously.

What is IEMT used for?

IEMT is incredibly effective in dealing with PTSD, anxiety, fears and phobias and depression. It is a very versatile tool that can be used in combination with other therapies and coaching models to achieve maximum result for the client.

Who is this training for?

The certification weekend is open to all and does not have any prerequisites. Typically we have a lot of Hypnotherapists, coaches, psychotherapists, EMDR therapists and counsellors.

You do not need to be a therapist or have any intention of becoming a therapist to attend. This is suitable if you are interested in your own personal development.

For the practitioner, IEMT is about precise calibration to the client. Unlike other treatments involving eye movements, with this model the eye movements are neither random nor simply a repetitive left and right movement in the hope that change will occur. The training provides the tools for the practitioner to precisely calibrate which axis through which to move the eyes enabling the exploration work to occur with precision and at a remarkable speed.

How is the course structured?
This extraordinary training course is divided into two days. On day one participants discover how to use the eye movements in conjunction with the IEMT algorithms to address emotional imprints. On day two, we explore issues relating to identity and ways of being.
The entire training is conducted online via Zoom. You will need to have a decent internet connection, a private room and suitable equipment (a decent webcam and possibly microphone).
This will be a very interactive course. We will be using break out rooms for you to practice the technique with the other participants.

What is the certification process?
After the course, you are to complete two case studies and submit them for review. Example case studies and full guidance will be provided. Once reviewed and approved, you can then apply to join the Association of IEMT. You will then be provided with your certificate and you can then apply for insurance (or add it to your existing policy). Those who do not submit case studies are not eligible for full membership of the Association of IEMT.
