Course: Transforming Your Inner Critic using IFS

The Inner Critic is the part of you that judges you, pushes you, and undermines your self-confidence. It can make you feel worthless, ashamed, guilty, depressed, or inadequate. Actually, you probably have more than one Inner Critic part, each of which judges you for something different or in a different way. I have learned how to best work with these difficult parts using Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) in order to transform them into inner allies.

Many people can use IFS successfully on their own, without a therapist, and I have put together a step-by-step IFS procedure for transforming your Inner Critic and developing self-confidence. This is explained in my book, Freedom from Your Inner Critic.

These Inner Critic parts aren’t quite what they seem to be. They are actually trying to help and protect you even though their effect is to harm you. In this course, you will learn how to work with your Inner Critics using IFS to make friends with them and then transform them.

In this course, you will learn about the seven types of Inner Critic parts and discover which ones are the most harmful to you. You will learn how to discover the exiles (wounded inner child parts) that are being protected by your Inner Critic and how to heal them in order to free up your Critic from its judgmental job. You will discover how to develop your Inner Champion, which is the healthy part of you that can support and encourage you in the face of Inner Critic attacks.

This work will help you develop Self-Esteem, Ease, Pleasure, Aliveness, Courage, and other healthy capacities that have been blocked by your Inner Critics.


This course consists of 6 two-hour classes by videoconference where you get to interact with me and a small number of other participants. Since we can see each other, it allows us to really create connection and trust in the group.

I will teach you how to do this powerful inner work and demonstrate it using live IFS sessions with volunteers from the class. You will also be paired up each week with someone from the class to practice doing an IFS session on yourself with your partner witnessing and helping you.
