What is parts work?

Parts work, based on Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, is founded on the observation that every person has a core nature that is compassionate, confident,creative and other wonderful qualities. However, we are often disconnected from our true nature because we are caught up trying to manage and control our lives, and protect ourselves from suffering.

In parts work, we turn towards these 'protector parts' of ourselves, with curiosity rather than criticism. As the relationship with our parts unfolds, we learn to value them for their hard work, and they learn to trust us to lead ourselves in the present moment. They become our champions and advisors, instead of controllers, critics or saboteurs.

With some practice, it is possible to do parts work by yourself, potentially gaining a huge amount of agency in your own healing journey. I have created a free online guide to support you. The guidance is based on my training in parts work through Aletheia coaching, and my personal experience and study of IFS therapy. These workshops will teach you the steps of solo parts work, and facilitate practice and reflection.

Who can benefit from a parts workshop?

I've found that almost everyone gets something out of parts work. It can be particularly useful in bringing clarity to situations in your life where you are experiencing confusion or forces pulling in opposite directions. For example, you may want to move past a pattern that seems to hold you back from what you most want. 

Please note that a workshop isn't usually the right context to go into situations associated with trauma or very strong emotions. For that, one-to-one support is recommended and I'm available to discuss that separately.
