constellations therapy

A family constellation is a three-dimensional group process which has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness.

Bert Hellinger, the founder of this work, who studied and treated families for more than 50 years, observed that many of us unconsciously ‘take on’ destructive familial patterns of anger, anxiety, anger, guilt, depression, aloneness, alcoholism, and even illness, as a way of ‘belonging’ in our families. Bonded by a deep love, a child will often sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. Family constellations allow us to break these patterns so that we can live healthier, happier, more fulfilled lives. In a moment of insight, a new life course can be set in motion. The results can be life-changing.

If you decide to undertake the therapy, you will come to a weekend workshop with a group of up to 12 other people. You bring an issue that you wish to work on, an area in your life that feels stuck. After a consultation with me, you will choose members of the group to represent members of your family, past and present, and then we work together to identify stuck energy, acknowledge it, and bring a resolution to it.

All constellation therapy is orientated towards resolution and finding resources. It recognises that the past has to be acknowledged and put to rest in order to turn to the future. At the same time, it acknowledges what has happened and gives up any fantasy that what has been done can be undone.

Please email me if you are interested in taking part in a family constellation workshop, and I will let you know the next available weekend.

A weekend family constellation workshop costs £180; we will work together from 9am until 6pm each day.
