IFS Training: Richard Schwartz‘s Internal Family Systems Institute provides training in IFS to practitioners through intensive programs called Level One, Level Two and Level Three. At any point a year or after taking a Level One training a practitioner can apply to become a Certified IFS Therapist with IFS-I by completing further learning, supervision and by having had their work reviewed and accepted by an approved IFS-I certifier. Derek Scott also provides training in IFS and anyone that has completed his Skills and Competencies Course is considered IFS Informed.

Ares of focus include: relationships, family therapy, LGBTQIA+, cultural pressures, identity stressors, creativity, intellectual and thinking parts, anxiety, stress.

IFS is wonderful because it invites us to shore up the resources that stabilize us on our path, while also offering a shift into transformation and healing.

My approach to therapy encourages your unique ability to work through stress or conflict in ways that honour your values and sense of self. My focus on relationships and IFS also offers an opportunity to (re)discover a sense of empathy and understanding in your relationships.
