Family Constellations in Person Workshop2023: Saturday March 25th & June 2nd - London UK
Family Constellations Workshop – In Person, London UK:
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 Somatic Therapist – we share a group constellation practice utilising our diverse professional skills and personal qualities.
What Happens in a Family Constellations Workshop?
Our groups have limited participants (9 or less) to create an environment in which everyone has an opportunity to participate in the ways outlined below. Our constellating style aims to be gentle and inclusive, opening the way to presence with yourself and the group.
We offer information and some short processes at the beginning to help everyone settle in, then we facilitate constellations for most of the day. 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, you can decline any role as you choose.
For our in person groups: issue holder places are requested and paid for in advance. We allow roughly 45 minutes per constellation though timings may vary. Some groups include additional practices such a constellation exercises working in small groups.
