Leona Dawson Internal Family Systems, Personal Development, Psychotherapy

Sometimes a quick quiz can bring you clarity, a light-bulb moment, it can make you think, give you hope, and help you start your personal healing journey. An Internal Family Systems Quiz can help you find your patterns and parts.

ifs pattern systemIt can be helpful to explore the key patterns in our lives that we feel compelled to repeat (until we don’t). These might be patterns to do with motivation or communication, or fear/anxiety or rebelliousness. They may be patterns around exerting our personal power (or not), around expressing our feelings (or not).


You might also be interested in which parts are dominating your life to the exclusion of others. It could be a working hard part over the parts that need rest & recovery, or safety-oriented part getting priority over your chance-taking part, perhaps your people-pleasing part over your self-care part?
