Constellations are a solution-focused healing approach that can help you reveal the hidden dynamics in your family or relationship in order to address any stressors impacting these relationships and heal them, as well as it can be used for self exploration, to investigate and resolve difficult and seemingly intractable issues that seem resistant to change.
While traditional therapies typically focus only on the client, Constellations work with a whole picture of the individual as part of a larger set of systems. The Constellation approach considers that each of us belongs to a range of different groups or 'systems' - our family group, ethnic group, work group, etc. Therefore, when looking at your specific issue, from this perspective, we are trying to look at the whole picture. In a Constellation session we work with you and the different systems you had belonged to. This allows you to open up the view of the issue to a wider context.
Family Constellation can be experienced in one-to-one sessions or in group sessions, depending on your preference. A one-to-one session could last from one hour to one hour and a half.
The Constellation methodology uses spatial representation of the key elements of your proposed topic, so you can literally see before your very eyes a three-dimensional visual living map of previously unseen and unimagined elements.
The Systemic constellations approach was developed by the German psychotherapist and philosopher Bert Hellinger in the mid-1990s. Family constellations therapy evolved out of nearly 50 years of studying and treating families which led to his observation of patterns of mental health, illness, negative emotions, and potentially destructive behaviours within families and groups.
This approach draws from a number of other modalities including: Gestalt Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Virginia Satir's family Sculpting, Psychodynamics, Hypnotherapy, Systemic Family Therapy, and the experience Hellinger had while living for sixteen years in South Africa near the Zulu community.
