IFS, sometimes called “parts work”, helps us look at why we sometimes have a part of us at odds with another “part”, a part that goes against the grain with its desire, fear, anger, or other resistance. IFS helps us reconcile our internal struggles, quiet our critical inner voices, and allow us to hear the wise parts of ourselves that sometimes feel far away.
More importantly, IFS helps us transform mistaken beliefs about ourselves, things like: I am not lovable, I am not safe, I am not enough, I am too much.
Kim loved being a caretaker, but part wanted more out of her life and relationship. She was able to find a voice for the part of herself that wanted to pursue her Master’s degree and tap into the anger she felt about playing small. She used the anger to push for changes at home so she could make room for the part of herself that wanted to follow her dream career.
Michael thought everything would be fine once Covid restrictions were lifted but he didn’t feel comfortable around people and found himself not wanting to leave the house. Part of him judged himself for being anxious, but another part was really afraid. A third part missed social connections and getting out. Through his work with IFS, he was able to make peace with his anxious side while enrolling to help him keep himself and others safe. His judgemental side became a voice of encouragement to take risks rather than condemning him for being cautious.
