Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidenced-based, non-pathologizing model of psychotherapy that emphasizes the natural multiplicity of the mind. The grounding assumption is that there are no bad parts, only parts forced into bad roles. When a client learns how to access Self, they can then heal their wounded parts. This brings the whole system into harmony and allows the person to become more Self-led. The natural side effect of this healing is a reduction in problematic or symptomatic behavior.
