Self Led You offers facilitation services to help build capacity for Self leadership. Self leadership is an empowered and centered way of being where we make decisions based on long-range & wide-angle perspectives that are in alignment with our core values. We choose to be present, conscious and committed to ourselves and our needs more of the time. As we take care of ourselves, we naturally start to fill needs of others we care about and start to explore how to have good relationships with our surroundings. We naturally strive to build communities, organisations and broader societal contexts that we truly want to live in.

To facilitate means to “make easier; help bring about”. Self Led You is a heartful facilitation service to help bring about Self leadership in individuals and groups. This is an ethical & diversity-welcoming practice guided by the standards of professional bodies of psychotherapy & coaching. Self Led You aims to raise awareness of and meet the global challenges we all play a part in. It is working to be accountable for our collective histories.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a transformative, evidence-based psychological modality that helps us towards wholeness by facilitating our access to the entirety of ourselves. IFS believes that the mind is naturally multiple (made up of “parts”) and that this a good thing. Just like members of a family, our inner parts can be forced from their natural, valuable states into unhelpful or sometimes extreme roles within us.

IFS believes we all have a core Self and that this Self is in everyone. It is an aspect of us that can't be damaged. It knows how to heal, lead and connect. This is an inner resource that we all have within us regardless of what has happened to us and what we may have done to ourselves or others.

By helping us first access our Self and, from that core, come to understand and heal parts of ourselves, IFS creates inner and outer connectedness. As we integrate more & more of ourselves, we experience an increased sense of inner trust and “flow” that we call Self leadership. Over time, we find ourselves with the inner resources needed to deal with complexity & make truly constructive, sustainable and congruent decisions.

Learn more about the IFS model at the IFS Institute (previously the Center for Self Leadership).
