Internal Family Systems Therapy

Kathy has received extensive training in the Internal Family Systems model and has found it to be an extremely effective way to treat trauma as well as many other issues.

IFS has developed over the past 20 years and is now one of the fastest growing approaches to therapy because of the excellent results people are getting while using it. It is a very respectful, non-pathologizing , collaborative model in which the therapist facilitates a clients own internal work as opposed to providing opinions, answers or advice. It aspires to free the inherent compassion, curiosity and creativity that lie beneath the protective parts of people in order to catalyze a level of internal healing. In this process people are able to unburden themselves of extreme beliefs, emotions, sensations and urges that constrain their lives. The result is self-led transformation.
