Internal Family Systems
All parts of you are welcome.
Improve your relationship to yourself.
Learn how to calm a racing mind, befriend the inner critic and find out what inner peace feels like.
As a coach, I focus on areas that may not get a diagnosis, but which still interfere with your life.
You might be struggling with:
- your relationship to food
- disordered eating patterns
- body confidence/image or confidence in general
- criticizing yourself
- people pleasing
- letting yourself rest and burning out
- having more self-compassion
- expressing your creativity
- making a big decision
- difficult relationship with your body and/or food
- sticking to a habit
- all or nothing mindset
I use a combination of emotional freedom technique, somatic approaches and internal family systems (IFS) in my coaching, which involves helping you process your emotions and have a more understanding and compassionate relationship with yourself.
Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) of therapy is a highly effective, evidence-based therapeutic framework grounded in systems thinking. IFS was developed in response to clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves as a way to “de-pathologize” the multi-part personality.
It is incredibly gentle way of working, that truly honours all parts of you, and can offer great healing. For more on this, take a read of this short blog post I wrote on it.
'IFS is one of the fastest-growing therapy approaches in the world — because it works! Using a non-pathologizing, evidence-based approach to healing, IFS effectively works with the client’s inner parts for transformative outcomes with PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, and more.'

Please note, I am NOT a therapist, meaning:
I don’t offer crisis support outside of sessions.
I don’t work with clients who are at risk of harming to themselves or others when dysregulated, such as physical violence, overuse of substances where overdose is possible, or mood dysregulation severe enough to endanger the client’s physical safety or job. I recommend to clients in this situation that they seek out a therapist trained in treating complex trauma.
I do work with clients on issues for which they don’t have a diagnosis.
If you would like to know more or have specific questions about that ways in which I work and whether they would suit you, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
