What is Internal Family Systems Therapy?
IFS therapy focuses on identifying and addressing the internal conflicts that arise between these different parts. The goal is to help individuals develop a greater understanding and acceptance of their internal "system" in order to promote healing and growth.
In IFS therapy, the therapist helps the individual identify and communicate with different parts of themselves, including those that may be experiencing distress or conflict. The therapist helps the individual recognize and acknowledge the different emotions and needs of each part, with the goal of bringing all parts into a more cohesive and harmonious relationship.
IFS therapy is often used to treat a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and relationship problems. It can be used in individual therapy or in couples or family therapy to address conflicts within relationships.
Overall, IFS therapy is a collaborative and compassionate approach to understanding and healing the complex nature of the human psyche.
