Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy in Brisbane

Internal Family Systems therapy is based on the reasonably straight forward idea that we all experience different parts of ourselves. We might say: “one part of me wants to exercise and eat healthily, but another part of me wants to each junk food, especially when I am stressed. When we tune into these parts of ourselves, they can feel like little people inside us, with their own body based sensations, emotions, feelings, thoughts and motivations. You are probably familiar with feeling conflicted or confused about something in your life, with parts of us holding opposite positions.

What is Internal Family Systems?

Internal Family Systems therapy is an evidence-based approach that focuses on healing our parts and encouraging a greater sense of balance and harmony in order to promote better mental health. You can read more about the Internal Family System’s model on the IFS Institute Website.
