Systemic Family Constellations Therapy was pioneered by psychotherapist and philosopher Bert Hellinger and has become increasingly recognised as an astounding, powerful and far-reaching approach to finding lasting resolutions for issues or blocks which before had seemed beyond our reach.
Some clients have found that Family Constellations has eased their suffering after years of conventional therapy.
Family Constellations brings to light our deep interconnectedness with our family and leads to a deep experiential understanding of primordial love at the heart of all kinds of mental, psychosomatic and unconscious blockages.
These blockages can lead to sabotaging our relationships, self- esteem and also our potential for prosperity in life. Once love can be freed from these entanglements which can sometimes date back one, two or even three generations, it becomes a force for profound healing.
What happens in a Workshop?
The workshop process provides an opportunity to explore your own issues in a safe, confidential environment with approximately twelve to fifteen people. Firstly, under the guidance of the facilitator, you are helped to clarify your issue. Then, using members of the group as representatives of your family system, you place them in relation to each other.
By creating a living map or ‘constellation’ of ‘what is’ – which is often different from our mental pictures, family myths or agreed stories – we can begin to see and take in profoundly moving realities. The facilitator will also work with blockages revealed, enabling you to move forward towards a resolution of your issue.
By witnessing and serving as a representative in other people’s constellations, this can also touch us in a deep and profoundly healing way.
Some of the issues we face may seem impossible to resolve and difficult to observe as the dynamics at play can be hidden. The systemic roots of our limitations and suffering can lie in the unconscious forces of the family system. By bringing these invisible dynamics of family systems to light, it enables us to free ourselves and those we love from further pain and suffering.
