Personal Growth Groups

The Personal Growth Groups are based on IFS and Capacity Development.

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) is superb at resolving psychological issues and healing underlying pain from the past, to enhance your self-confidence and well-being. IFS is a powerful, user friendly method of psychotherapy and personal growth work. IFS is a recognized, proven method for individual psychotherapy with a robust training program and thousands of certified therapists. It helps transform stuck parts of yourself into inner resources of strength, love, and freedom.
