HAVE TO SAY
I would recommend the Self-Led Project to anyone who wants to feel more empowered to live the life they want because the program helped me to be more self-led and have more clarity about the options I have in my life.
As a result of participating in groups that Bill Tierney facilitates (The Self-Led Project and Parts Work Practice) as well as other work I do with the IFS model, I more readily turn inward and acknowledge parts activated in relationship with others. I’m less attached to particular outcomes. I have greater awareness of myself and my parts.
I would recommend the Self-Led Project to anyone who wants to start doing inner work because of a nice and consistent format that provides a clear step by step progression into exploring oneself.
I would recommend the Self-Led project to anyone who wants to explore why they react the way they do to situations. The program helped me experience more peace in my life.

Get Your Power and Choice Back
The 2-Hour webinar is a great place to start learning how to shift out of the automatic life you are settling for and into the empowered, conscious life of your choice.
Like it or not, most of us are living an unconscious life. The unconscious mind is multitudes more powerful than the conscious mind. Without making a conscious effort to explore and update the beliefs that run our lives, we live automatic lives programmed when we were children and had no power or choice. This webinar is an introduction to the Self-Led Project, a group coaching program that uses IFS (Internal Family Systems) to get your unconscious working for you – automatically!
Introduction to the Self-Led Project
The Self-Led Project is a group coaching program that uses the IFS model to help you make lasting and meaningful changes by helping you discover an innate resource of wisdom, compassion, and power.
You will never think the same way about yourself.
You may have gotten good at hiding your self-criticism. But just because nobody hears the nasty things you are saying to yourself, it still hurts. Most of us work hard to suppress the inner critic while presenting a version of ourselves we hope others will accept. But what if that critical part of you is just trying to help?
Seating is limited to 12 participants
The webinar will help you decide if the Self-Led Project is a good fit for you.
Group coaching isn’t for everyone. Before committing to a 12 session module of the Self-Led Project, attend the free webinar. Get a feel for Coach Bill Tierney’s style of coaching and the feel of working in a group.
My name is Bill Tierney. I am a Certified IFS Practitioner and have been a Personal Development Coach since 2011. I do my own personal development work and am committed to helping others find the clarity and power to create the lives they want.
The webinar is interactive. Participants learn about some of the concepts that have helped me recover my True Self and transform my life. The ideas we discuss helped me to recover power and choice during my decades-long personal development journey.
As with the Self-Led Project, the workshop is designed to help participants..
- Discover who they really are
- Breakout of dysfunctional patterns, and
- Reclaim their personal power and choice
Participants are encouraged to be both skeptical and open, questioning the concepts I share during the webinar and only accepting ideas that make sense.
The webinar is live and interactive. Participants are invited to share their comments and questions. I ask for volunteers, and all who attend are asked to do some personal introspection. Full participation will yield maximum benefit.
What will we be talking about?
Human beings manage their concerns and fears unconsciously. By bringing those fears and management strategies to the surface, we have an opportunity to consciously change how we unconsciously view and react to the circumstances of our lives.
As children, even in the most loving and supportive homes, there were times when our needs weren’t met. We experienced scares and hurts. Some were neglected, abused, or abandoned.
We are all capable of processing and recovering from the impact of unmet needs and trauma. In safe, loving environments with patient, capable, and attentive caretakers, children feel and express emotions that are appropriate to their experiences. They are helped to make sense of what has happened. Their sense of value and worth is validated and the child fully processes painful experiences.
But when it doesn’t feel safe to release emotional energy and express natural curiosity about painful and scary experiences, the pain gets stuck and the experiences go unexplained.
This leaves the child with the ongoing burden of unexpressed emotional pain along with the challenging task of making sense of what happened. This burden creates an emotional wound that keeps the child tethered to the past until it can be resolved.
Sensing they have no power or control to prevent more scares and hurts, children take responsibility for what happened. They blame themselves, concluding that they somehow caused the scare, hurt, or traumatic experience. This self-blame gives them a sense of power and control in otherwise powerless and sometimes hopeless situations.
In this way, children form shame-based beliefs about themselves.
Of course, we were all children. No matter how capable and attentive our caretakers were, no one escapes the experience of an unmet need, getting scared without comfort, or being hurt without protection or safety.
Our identities – how we viewed ourselves, gradually shifted from worthy and valued to unworthy and deficient.
By blaming ourselves for painful circumstances when we were young and dependent, we created a Shame Identity of “not enough-ness” or “too muchness.”
We feared others would also realize there was something wrong with us – that we weren’t enough or that we were too much.
So, we tried to hide or overcome our shortcomings. We created a False Identity to present to the world; an identity that we hoped the world would accept and approve of. An identity to keep us safe and help us get what we wanted in life – love and acceptance.
The strategies we used to hide and to try to overcome our faults were designed to keep our Shame Identity hidden from the world.
But, in the process we lost the free and easy sense of who we really were – we hid our True Self from ourselves.
During the webinar, we will explore how this dynamic and these patterns unfold in our lives.
The insights gained during our time together can lead to breakthroughs capable of changing the course of a life by breaking up unconscious patterns of dysfunction and suffering.
By making what has been unconscious and automatic conscious, we can gain access to clarity, power, and choice.
