Would like to hear some anecdotes, field reports, personal experiences going through IFS and/or coherence therapy. I've been going to therapy for almost a year and thought these specializations would benefit me the most.

It'd also be interesting to hear from folks who have also done self-therapy and therapy with an IFS or coherence specialist.

An important consideration is what you are dealing with. Severe ACE? Something else?

Yes, my father passed when I was young, almost 20 years ago. I started therapy only last year as I became aware of the schemas (e.g. pursuing grand accomplishments to relieve/prevent feelings of emptiness reminiscent of his passing) that have been affecting my QoL. There may be other schemas I could be unaware of as well, but the pattern I see is that they revolve around my father's passing. 

Therapy has been great, however I've experienced greater effects through "self-therapy" using a combination of IFS, coherence and Focusing.
