Mary is noted for her humor, creativity, passion, and love of dancing and people.

The training:

  • Concentrates on the challenges of treating clients who have extremely protective systems and/or have experienced childhood trauma.
  • Focuses on expanding the participant's knowledge of essential processes unique to IFS, such as working with internal polarizations, working with dangerious firefighters, and unburdening.
  • Emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship by deepening the participant’s awareness of and relationship to their own parts.
  • Emphasizes the importance of the Self in both the client and therapist, and includes many opportunities for self-exploration.


Learning Objectives: Please click here or visit 

The training includes lecture, discussion, demonstration, video review, experiential exercises and small group supervision and practice. The format of the Training involves didactic learning as well as a wide range of experiential processes designed to help participants deepen their understanding of IFS. One of the most important experiential aspects of the training involves daily opportunities to practice using IFS skills with each other supported by 1:3 & 1:4 ratios of experienced and local assistants. In this way, participants learn by both doing, observing, and receiving the work.  

To receive the certificate of attendance you must attend BOTH weeks of training and the Saturday/Sunday dates TBC teleconferences (90-120min). For requirements to be certified as either an IFS Therapist or an IFS Practitioner see the CSL website
