Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a powerful form of therapy that helps us get to know our different parts, heal unconscious wounds and live from (Higher) Self. Our true essence, the Self is always compassionate, curious and connected—and knows exactly what is needed to heal.
We are all made of different parts that are trying to keep us safe. Some of these parts are forced to take on extreme roles due to trauma or adversity. These protector parts are constantly working to protect us from the old and new pain. They sometimes cause unpleasant symptoms—from anxiety and depression to addictions and even physical health problems.
In an IFS session, we get to know our different parts and how they are trying to help us. When the protector parts feel heard and appreciated, they can relax and give us permission to heal the wound underneath. After the wound is healed, protector parts don't have to work so hard to keep the pain away. Therefore, we don't get triggered as easily and symptoms can abate.
