All parts are welcome and valuable

Internal Family Systems therapy

The Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy is a way to understand your internal system and help it to transform and heal. IFS is evidenced-based method that is based on the principle of multiple mind and that there is a resourceful Self at the core of every person.  In the process accessing and working with that Self is a safe, effective way to heal other, hurt parts of the mind.

My role as a IFS practitioner is to guide you and help to separate yourself from your parts and access the Self, because the Self can connect with each part and heal it. This allows the parts to let go of their extreme or destructive roles and enter into a harmonious cooperation with the Self.

In the therapeutic process you connect with parts and lead internal dialogues with my support. There are few tapes of parts that hold important roles. Parts that seem to be in protective, managerial roles are called managers. Exiles are those parts that carry the emotions, memories or body sensations from the experiences of being hurt, humiliated, shamed of frightened in the past.

Another group of parts activate whenever one of the exiles may overwhelm you with its extreme feelings or make you vulnerable to being hurt again. Those parts are called firefighters.

It is very important to recognise, accept and work with all the various part, rather than ignore, fight or try to get rid of them. This approach leads to build a positive relationship with all your parts and bring more calmness, clarity and harmony in your life. 

First session is free of charge, afterwords we can agree on the contract, payment (700 - 900 dkk / 50 min) and the frequency of the therapy.
