IFS (Internal Family Systems) is a systemic model of psychotherapy that offers a clear, non-pathologizing, and empowering method of understanding human problems, as well as an innovative and enriching philosophy of practice that invites both therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur.

When you work with a certified IFS therapist (which I am one) you will
begin to experience a different way of being (e.g., increased calm, curiousity,
connection, creativity, compassion, confidence, courage, and clarity).

The process is described as "internal focused work" with your parts. This involves getting curious about the different feelings and experiences within yourself. This may sound weird or strange at first but I often ask my clients: Have you ever had the experience of feeling torn or doubleminded? For example: has it ever been your experience to want to do 2 opposing things - Go out and have fun AND stay home and relax? People say "of course". I explain these are 2 unique parts of your mind that each want to have
something happen. This is a simple example of parts in operation.

A more extreme example would be: you love your partner and
you hate your partner at the same time. This simply is another
representation of parts showing up.

When you begin to do your own work with your parts (e.g., doing IFS)
then you begin the fantastical journey of Self-discovery, Self-healing, and Self-awareness that can bring you the calmness and balance you've been seeking.
