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.
IFIO Training: Intimacy from The Inside Out (IFIO) is a form of couples therapy with its roots in IFS. Toni Herbine-Blank and the IFS-I provide a special Level Two (IFIO) that teaches this couples protocol. In addition Toni provides Advanced IFIO trainings.
As someone who has worked in the helping professions for decades, as a life coach, community support worker and professional teacher, it has been a privilege to help people connect with their instinctive capacity to heal, and discover well-being and happiness in their own way. I am an IFS-trained practitioner and seasoned mindfulness trainer, and I am currently completing a Masters of Counselling Psychology degree at Yorkville University.
I live in Guelph, Ontario on the traditional lands of the Attiwonderonk and Haudenosaunee, and on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
