A Quote to Reflect On “IFS can be seen as attachment theory taken inside, in the sense that the client’s Self becomes the good attachment figure to their insecure or avoidant parts.” - Richard Schwartz

This profound insight by Richard Schwartz forms the cornerstone of our training, emphasising the transformative power of a nurturing internal system in therapeutic practice.

"Within each of us is a complex family of sub-personalities, which I call parts. These parts are the reason we can simultaneously have so many contradictory and confusing needs." – Richard Schwartz

“IFS recognizes that the cultivation of mindful self-leadership is the foundation for healing from trauma.”
― Bessel A. van der Kolk

IFS is a way of empowering ourselves to be our own healer, and to trust our own inner wisdom.” – Richard Schwartz. 

Weekly Structure

WEEK ONE - 3 Hours

Teaching and Demonstrations

We will greet each other during our initial meeting and establish group guidelines. We will provide an overview of the integrated model, including the three types of parts we typically encounter in sessions, how parts show up in the body and introduce the concept of Self and Self-energy to work with and heal the system.

In the four teaching weeks, we will cover the following topics - Working with Protectors, Therapist Parts, The Autonomic Nervous System, Somatic Profiling and Encoding. We will also explore introducing the model to new and existing clients.

Throughout the training, we will emphasise speaking for your parts rather than speaking from them.

To illustrate the concepts over the 16 weeks, we will ask a volunteer to participate in a demonstration as you become more familiar with the IFS Model. Following the demonstration, we will provide time for questions and answers. You can work on your system during the demonstrations and notice what is happening in your mind and body, as an IFS guide must understand their system beyond role-playing.

Please note that these sessions will be recorded and made available for future review at your convenience. The session recording will only be provided to those who attended it to ensure confidentiality and safety.

WEEK TWO and THREE - 3 Hours


In the supervised session, you will work on the topic you have studied during week one of the teaching week.

In weeks two and three, the group will have a skilled IFS Practitioner present who will help you master the integrative model and work with the parts of yourself that arise.

During Weeks 2 and 3 of the programme, you will play four roles - therapist, client, mapper and observer. As a therapist, you will have up to 30 minutes to practise the techniques learned in the course. You will also act as a client, receiving therapy from a fellow participant. Additionally, you will observe your system and take notes on the techniques used by your peers. After each practice session, there will be a 15-minute feedback and processing session, where you can discuss your experience and receive feedback from your peers.

WEEK FOUR - 3 Hours

Consultation Time

In this session, the entire group will come together, and you can ask any questions arising during your practice or from learning the theory. For example, we may decide to do a piece of work if we are having difficulty with a particular client or using the model. Additionally, we may explore the parts your clients may have triggered to help you gain clarity and unburden yourself.

This forum is an excellent opportunity to understand your therapist's parts better. You can bring up challenging issues like addictions, self-harming, difficulty with unblending or working with trauma.

Please note that these sessions will be recorded and made available for future review at your convenience. The session recording will only be provided to those who attended it to ensure confidentiality and safety.
