The IFS Guide app offers you step-by-step guidance based on Internal Family Systems protocols so that you have a safe space to take care of your Parts anytime, anywhere.

The free format chat allows you the freedom and creativity you need to connect with your parts at your own pace. You can also log your conversations with your parts and reflect on them later.

Your guide, Pepe, will be with you every step of the way, so you never wander off or feel lost in the process. These text and audio guides will help you through inner child work and shadow work, so you understand your parts better and create deeper relationships with them.

Create a profile for each Part of your Internal Family System and log its traits, behavior, and relationships with other parts.

Scheduled reminders will help you ensure your Parts get the care and attention they need from you.

The PERFECT tool for getting to know (and love) all your parts

If you have a baseline understanding of Internal Family Systems and are ready to get to work, this app is a truly perfect place to start. The meditations (I.e, “parts work”sessions/checkins) are both engaging snd centering—more like a “choose your own adventure” experience than a passive “listen as someone talks at you” session. The speaker’s voice is warm, human, and genuine—doesn’t feel patronizing or pandering like some other guided meditations. I also love that you can create profiles for your own parts—avatar, name, and all—and actually engage in chats with them (not sure I’ll use this feature but I like knowing it’s there!). The interface is sleek, clean, engaging, and super intuitive. Very well built with many admirable design and UX decisions made along the way.

My only complaint is the mascot — a cartoon dog, named Pepe (??), in a suit of all things (???). Maybe there’s a connection to IFS I’m just not well-versed enough to appreciate at this point? The good news is that it’s the only questionable or I’ll-conceived element in the entire experience. If you can get past this “part”—or embrace him for the protector/guide he’s trying to be—there really is a wealth of wisdom and actionable strategies packed into the app itself. So glad I found it.

Once in the app, the mascot can be changed to your liking in the settings section of the upper right menu! Feel free to reach out to us at IFS@IFSGUIDE.COM

So grateful for this

I have the pleasure of doing internal family systems, therapy in person for a few years and it was the most impactful therapy I’ve ever done. When I moved, I struggled in finding a practitioner and stumbled upon this app and thank God because this has been such a beautiful way of reconnecting with my parts and providing structuring guidance. It has brought me a level of peace that I don’t get through regular therapy. It is potent and impactful

Lovely app. I don’t like the mascot

I like the app so far. First day using it and I had a valuable time connecting with one of my parts through the chat feature - this is fantastic!!! So excited to continue using it.

There are bugs - the Parts section doesn’t always allow me to make edits to specific parts (like changing the image for a part). The video tutorials don’t always load. I have to keep shutting down the app and opening it again to get it working. I really hope the bugs get fixed soon.

I don’t like Pepe the dog icon. I like dogs but I don’t find Pepe to be cute at all. I went as far as changing the icon of the app on my phone desktop. I find it distracting and silly-looking. I changed the icon to something more neutral. I’m the app, Pepe still shows up in the app even though I changed the icon on the Home Screen. Ugh.

Thank you for your kind words; we’re grateful for your feedback. It’s our pleasure to provide the best possible app to you.
You can change Pepe's icon inside the app. Please go to the "Learn to use this app" section and watch the last video to change the Pepe's icon.
Enjoy using the app💚
