What is Internal Family Systems (IFS)?
I use the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, which I have learned through my personal therapy and online training. IFS sees that we are all made up of a system of various sub-personalities or ‘parts’, and these parts have their own feelings, thinking, fears and actions. Though all parts in the IFS model are well–intentioned, their current methods can sometimes be counterproductive and may be rooted in past traumatic experiences.
Aside from these protective parts is the “Self“ which is sometimes referred to as the soul or higher consciousness. When the “Self“ is present enough within the system, it is characterized by its calming, compassionate and curious nature, which can lead to natural healing.
With my therapeutic online counseling, you can benefit from the opportunity to gain insight into yourself, your reactions, and inner conflicts. With this knowledge, you can work with these parts in your day-to-day life, being able to recognize and communicate about your active parts in social situations. With my help, you can begin to make real, lasting changes in your life.
Please note I’m not an accredited IFS therapist nor a healthcare professional.
What can you expect during our therapeutic session?
I will be asking you questions about your emotions, body sensations, images or thoughts related to the topic you’d like to explore. We’ll work together to better understand any parts that may be involved, such as what they are trying to do, why, and what they are worried about. Sometimes expressing emotion or body movement during this process can be helpful, and I will take care to ensure that we never push past your comfort level.
How can this guidance help you?
It is very common for people to have unrecognized behaviors, reactions, and inner conflicts. For example, a part of you may feel fear/anger/sadness and think you should react in a certain way, while another part prevents you from doing so to avoid conflict. It can be hard to be aware of when these dynamics happen automatically. The goal of this guidance is to become more familiar with these parts and how they make you feel. Once you have a better understanding of them, you can start to work with them in your day-to-day life. Simply recognizing and communicating about your active parts in social situations can be very helpful.
Once your protective parts trust you enough (which may take years), they will relax and give space for you to work with the traumatized parts of yourself. While I can provide guidance along this journey, I recommend seeking an official IFS therapist if you wish to move forward with this process as I am not qualified to do so.
What should you expect from the free introduction session?
You will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of Internal Family Systems (IFS) parts work, get to know about at least one protective part and its location in the body, and become familiar with me, my style of guidance, and how I work.
I am excited to guide you in exploring your inner world and uncovering the different aspects of yourself.
