The Internal Family Systems (IFS) method can be learnt by anyone, is easily incorporated into professional and daily life, and can be combined effectively with a wide variety of therapeutic methods. IFS can be used by counsellors, psychotherapists, medical practitioners, dance and art therapists, and business and academic professionals. It is ideal for anyone seeking personal and spiritual growth among a community of like-minded professionals. The method is practised by thousands of therapists and other professionals throughout the USA and internationally.

You need to complete your Level 1 training before you can book a Level 2 training course, similarly completing your Level 2 course before a Level 3.

A Senior Trainer from the US Center of Self Leadership leads the program with experienced Assistants supporting learning over 88 hours online/ 2 residential retreat weeklongs (13 days in total) in a 1:3 and 1:4 ratios. Program Assistants are selected from experienced Australian L1+ practitioners – and occasionally also with US, UK and other international practitioners (health and travel restrictions permitting).

You can book your training course online using the links below the Events page entry and descriptions here. Before booking your course, please confirm you have read and accept our terms and conditions.
