What is Internal Family Systems therapy?


Have you ever thought, ‘There’s a part of me that _________ and another part that _________” (fill in the blank)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an approach to psychotherapy that embraces multiplicity. It is compassionate, inclusive, powerfully healing, and deeply respectful of our inner life. Despite the name, it is primarily a form of individual therapy.

IFS brings curiosity to all the different parts of ourselves; healing the tender or wounded parts and restoring mental balance and harmony. By learning about these parts and providing the attention they need, you can experience more of what Dr. Richard Schwartz, the founder of IFS, calls the 8 C’s of Self leadership: Calm, Curiosity, Clarity, Compassion, Confidence, Courage, Creativity and Connectedness.
