 What is EMI? 
EMI is a neuro-therapeutic modality for accessing and integrating traumatic memories and experiences. EMI is astonishingly rapid in its effects, freeing clients from the burden of unresolved memories of almost any form of trauma.

During EMI Level 1 training, the primary emphasis will be placed on the roots of EMI, areas of application, EMI and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We will also explore new information on how we register trauma, as well as eye movements and the mind. The evaluation of the client, coping strategies and resources, planning the treatment, preparing the client for intervention, exploring traumatic memory networks, utilizing the 24 eye movement patterns, concluding EMI and ending the session. This workshop involves practical practice sessions. At the completion of this workshop, professionals will be able to use EMI in their practices.

During EMI Level 2 training, the emphasis is on using EMI for activating and utilising the resources of the client.  More information and skills will also be shared about using EMI with psychiatric populations and using EMI with children.
 Group Supervision (GS) for both EMI & RT
Please note that Group and Individual supervision is very important. Supervision forms part of the training and is most beneficial to each of you. In a group supervision format, we also learn a lot from each other and from Minnie with case presentations. It is also compulsory to complete the group supervision before being fully qualified and to be listed internationally.

 Resource Therapy (RT)
Developed by Gordon Emmerson
22 July 2022 – Group Supervision
Resource Therapy is a psychotherapy, developed by Professor Gordon Emmerson, combining his knowledge of Ego State Therapy, cognitive psychology and client experience.

Gordon Emmerson is an Honorary Fellow in the School of Psychology at Victoria University, Melbourne. He is the author of the books ‘Ego State Therapy‘ (2003, 2007, 2010), Advanced Techniques in Therapeutic Counselling (2006), Healthy Parts Happy Self (2012), and Resource Therapy Primer (2014).

Resource therapy is a brief, strength-based, trauma-informed, parts therapy. It is based on the understanding that the personality is composed of multifaceted parts. These parts are called our resources and we have many resource parts. These parts were created in earlier life stages to help us cope with difficult life situations. At that time they were functional and necessary, but they may not be helpful in the current situation.  Resource States may be Normal or Pathological. We want all our personality states to be normal. Resource Therapy helps states move to normality.

Resource Therapy had its genesis in the widely known Ego State Therapy and has a rich pedigree in theory and practice. It is also known as Advanced Ego State Therapy as hypnosis is not needed to work with the resource parts directly.

A Resource Therapist is trained to help clients deal with their unwanted thoughts, feelings, beliefs, reactions and emotions, getting to the very heart of why they have come for help.     By bringing the part of the personality that needs help into the conscious, the therapist works directly with the part that is locked in pain, fear, abandonment, neglect, hurt, guilt, trauma, resentment, anger and shame and other unhelpful emotional burdens. Resource therapists facilitate full expression, validation, and empowerment. This facilitates a faster, deep and long-lasting change.
