Instant Image Therapy (IIT) is a technique unique to the Therapy Retreats range of programmes. It has been developed over the past 40 years through the clinical practice of David Keighley, Director / Therapist of Therapy Retreats. Utilising the latest research in brain science and the ability of the brain to create new neural pathways, it facilitates the change of unwanted and destructive mental images we hold of partners, people, ourselves and experience into positive images of acceptance. An illustration would be changing the image of a critical wife or an angry husband into an image which exists but gets hidden, e.g. a loving wife or a caring husband.
In accordance with the Therapy Retreats philosophy there is none of the traditional, lengthy and painful analysis of the past. It is a short term, ‘fast therapy’ not dependent on long-term self-help programmes or on-going counselling. We expect rapid cognitive and behavioural change within the duration of a retreat using ‘Time Therapy’ (a technique which avoids living emotionally in the past or future). With IIT new life images become instantly available enabling changes in mindsets and attitudes which previously prevented cognitive changes taking place.
"3 days with David has totally changed our perspective and offered solutions to issues previously thought insurmountable. Recommend wholeheartedly."
Matthew & Catty, January 2016
"Our only regret is not coming to David sooner. What a difference just a few days can make. Thank you for giving me back my husband". "We would unreservedly recommend 'Therapy Retreats' to anyone experiencing relationship issues. Keep up the good work. Found it far better than 'Relate' counselling."
Jackie & Claude, Hampshire. December 2015
"Rewiring your brain never seemed so simple....but so necessary. Recommend without hesitation!"
"The time I have spent with David has been a truly enlightening experience. Recommend 100%"
"I have accomplished more in five days on this retreat than I have in the last two years by other therapy methods. Soon felt at ease with David. I will continue using the tools he has taught me for the rest of my life."
