Details of the IFS model...
Founded by Richard Schwartz, PhD., the Internal Family Systems model (IFS), is a cutting edge psychotherapy approach that offers therapists a non-pathological conceptual framework for understanding the human psyche. IFS respectfully guides people toward lasting and profound transformation. IFS applies family systems principles and techniques to working with inner parts of the person. It is widely used internationally in the treatment of trauma and severe diagnoses, as well as a wide variety of psychological issues and non-clinical applications such as business consulting and meditation practice. IFS offers therapists a way to make their practice more enjoyable and effective, and less effortful. It also helps them find and heal parts of themselves.
SAMHSA has recently added IFS to the US National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices rating it as “effective for improving general functioning and well-being,” and “promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms.”
Simon d'Orsogna is a therapist and facilitator-trainer based in Melbourne, with individual and organizational clients across Australia and Asia and services that include therapy, process consultancy and adult developmental coaching.
Simon continues to work with families and teams as a process consultant, bringing perspectives from systems thinking, adult development, and sensemaking to complex human dilemmas - intrapsychically for the individual, couples, and families.
Simon also facilitates Coherence Therapy
workshops in Australia, and co-developed the four-part online training, "Theory and Practice of Coherence Therapy."
He has completed a Clinical Masters in Systemic Family Therapy
at La Trobe University, and continues studying the late David Grove's unique
therapeutic approach to language, body and space.

He is a level 2 training candidate for Leslie Greenberg's EFT with the Australian Institute of Emotion Focused Therapy.
