Internal Family Systems is and evidence based approach that works from the idea that everyone is made up of a variety of "parts" .  In order for healing to occur we must get to know our parts on a deeper level. Through help from a practitioner that is familiar with this system we can  then identify the roots of presenting problems and support ourselves to experience greater wellbeing in our lives

About Me

PROFILE_edited.jpg

Through the years of my own personal journey and healing I have learnt that  moving towards the parts of myself that I rejected, criticised and ridiculed.  I was then able to find peace with my being in a curious and compassionate way. I was able to honour myself as a full and whole human being.

IFS Led Psychedelic Integration Therapy can be used for a variety of experiences that involve non ordinary states of consciousness including Breathwork, Sound Therapy &  Psychedelic Medicine experiences 

Sometimes we forget that planning, preparation and integration are as crucial as the Journey or sessions itself and substantial preparation & Integration can have a more positive impact and outcome from your experience. 

Through the years of my own personal journey and healing I have learnt that  moving towards the parts of myself that I rejected, criticised and ridiculed.  I was then able to find peace with my being in a curious and compassionate way. I was able to honour myself as a full and whole human being.

Eating Distress comes in many forms, overeating, undereating, restriction to name a few.

It can be very enticing to reach for a diet book to "fix" your concerns around food.  

IFS is a gentle and compassionate way to turn towards ourselves, our relationship with food and look at the root cause of the issue rather that short term solutions

  • Trauma, Physical ,Emotional & Psychological Abuse
