Internal Family Systems
Internal Family Systems recognises that our psyches are made up of different parts, sometimes called sub personalities. Each has its own perspective, feelings, memories, goals, and motivations. IFS has discovered that every part has a positive intent for you, no matter how problematic it might be and that each of us has a spiritual center, a true Self. The IFS proccess helps us to connect with each part and get to know and understand it. An IFS therapist or group leader will coach the Self in how to relate to the parts, but the Self is the true leader of the internal system and can love and heal each part, so you become free of extreme feelings and behavior.
