Internal Family Systems


Dr. Richard Schwartz shares that IFS recognizes that our psyches are made up of different parts, sometimes called sub-personalities. You can think of them as little people inside us. Each has its own perspective, feelings, memories, goals, and motivations. 

In IFS, we do something altogether different and radical. We welcome all our parts with curiosity and compassion. We seek to understand them and appreciate their efforts to help us. But we don’t lose sight of the ways they may be causing us problems. We develop a relationship of caring and trust with each part, and then take the steps to release it from its burdens so it can function in a healthy way.

Brainspotting uses our field of vision to find where we are holding trauma in our brain. Just as the eyes naturally scan the outside environment for information, they can also be used to scan our inside environment—our brain—for trauma.

This approach is also known as brain-body based therapy. What is felt in the body is also felt in the brain.  For example, heartache is felt in the body. Brainspotting will help you to process emotional trauma, or devaluing experiences, of the past or most recently, by targeting and releasing the burdens and healing the wounds that continue to cause you distress. It can also improve artistic and sports performances.
