About Family Constellations:
Family Constellations is a therapeutic approach for healing psychological pain, originated by German Psychotherapist Bert Hellinger. It recognises that individual humans exist within a myriad of systems, mostly made up of other individuals and wider shaping forces: e.g. the biological family or the workplace.
We all have blind spots meaning we act in ways which inadvertently create undesirable outcomes. Family Constellations illuminates how these blind spots may have their roots in past events and previous generations. Some of the stories will be handed down to us and we know them: our actions in the present can also be influenced by stories we don’t consciously know about.
A constellation can help reveal these “entanglements” with the past and support healing to take place.
Your Family Constellations Workshop facilitators:
Individually we have long experienced the beneficial impact of constellations on our own personal and professional journeys. We met in 2017 and graduated together from a two year practitioner training with Robert Rowland Smith and Nicola Dunn. Coming from different professional spheres – Abi is a GP and Rose a holistic therapist – we share a group constellation practice utilising our diverse professional skills and personal qualities.
What Happens in a Family Constellations Workshop?
We offer information at the beginning to help everyone settle in and sometimes some short exercises and perhaos a topic too. Then we facilitate constellations for individuals in the group who want one. A constellation: someone brings a question (they are the ‘issue holder’) and the rest of the group supports an exploration of it – some by representing elements of the issue discussed.
You don’t need any prior experience for either role, both roles are optional (i.e. you can always say no or step out) and both roles can offer up valuable experiences. Issue holders express their interest in having a constellation on the day, the length of each constellation may vary and we try to fit everyone in who wants one.
