How essential Inquiry is different

IFS Trained.

Internal Family Systems is a powerful psychotherapy tool to explore your internal dynamics, what motivates you both in your conscious and subconscious mind.


After 20 years of my own spiritual journey and supporting others to do the same I have gained a deep and intimate understanding with this sometimes confusing and misleading landscape.

I started Essential Inquiry to Help people just like you...

I know what it's like to struggle. I know because I have lived it. Most of us don't realise how much our minds affect our happiness and success. We let fear, insecurities and negative thinking hold us back from living a full life.

When it comes to navigating our minds and emotional experience, there are tools available that we should be taught but aren’t. I’ve spent the better part of 20 years searching for methods that show actual results. Let me help you save some time.


At Essential Inquiry.

I help you get unstuck by using the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS), an evidence-based model of psychotherapy. We'll explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. You'll learn how past experiences shaped who you are today.

You'll understand what is driving your limiting beliefs so you can make lasting changes in your life. Working together, we will clarify how specific thoughts are holding you back. This awareness allows you to take control of your choices, live a more prosperous life.


There is HOPE.
