Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a psychotherapeutic approach that emphasizes the role of the self in the healing process. IFS is based on the idea that each person has a "system" of subpersonalities, or "parts," each with its own unique traits, emotions, and beliefs. These parts are organized in a particular way and influence the person's thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

According to IFS, the goal of therapy is to help the individual become more aware of these parts and how they interact with each other. By developing a greater understanding of the system, the individual can begin to identify which parts are causing problems or holding them back, and work towards healing and integration.

One of the key aspects of IFS is the idea of the "Self." In IFS, the Self is seen as the core of the individual, a place of calm, clarity, and compassion. The Self is considered to be the natural state of being, but can become obscured by the different parts of the system. The goal of IFS therapy is to help the individual access and strengthen the Self, which in turn allows for greater healing and integration of the parts.

IFS therapy can be used to treat a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction. It can be used as a standalone therapy or integrated with other therapeutic approaches. The therapist in IFS therapy takes a non-judgmental and compassionate approach to working with the individual and their parts, allowing for greater self-discovery and healing.

IFS has gained popularity in recent years and is now widely recognized as an effective therapy for a variety of mental health issues. The approach has been used in both individual and group therapy settings, and has been found to be particularly effective in helping individuals with complex trauma histories and other complex mental health issues.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
