Internal Family Systems

Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, also known as Parts Therapy, is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Richard Schwartz in the 1980s. It is a model of therapy that focuses on understanding and working with the various parts or subpersonalities within an individual's mind to promote healing, self-awareness, and personal growth. IFS therapy has been used to treat a wide range of psychological issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, and relationship problems. It is often considered a holistic and empowering approach to therapy, as it helps individuals develop greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and emotional regulation while addressing deep-seated emotional wounds and inner conflicts.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy that is primarily used to treat individuals who have experienced traumatic events or distressing life experiences. Developed by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s, EMDR has gained widespread recognition and acceptance in the field of mental health for its effectiveness in helping people process and heal from trauma. EMDR therapy has been shown to be effective in treating conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but it can also be used for a wide range of other psychological issues, including anxiety, depression, and phobias. 

Somatic Therapy

Somatic therapy, also known as somatic experiencing therapy, is a therapeutic approach that focuses on the mind-body connection and the role of the body in processing and healing from trauma. It was developed by Dr. Peter A. Levine, a psychologist, and author, who observed that trauma often leaves a physiological imprint on the body. Somatic trauma therapy aims to address and release the physical tension, sensations, and unresolved energy associated with traumatic experiences. Somatic trauma therapy can complement other therapeutic approaches and is part of a holistic approach to healing trauma by addressing both the psychological and physiological aspects of trauma recovery.

Nature-Based Therapy

Ecotherapy, also known as nature-based therapy is a therapeutic approach that integrates the healing power of the natural world into the process of psychological and emotional well-being. Ecotherapy recognizes the interconnectedness between human health and the health of the environment and seeks to leverage this connection for therapeutic purposes. Ecotherapy can be used to address a wide range of mental health concerns, including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. It is often considered a holistic and experiential approach to therapy that complements traditional psychotherapy. It's important to note that while ecotherapy can be a valuable approach for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with physical limitations or severe mental health issues.
