Family or Systemic Constellations

‘The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see’.

Winston S. Churchill

Family constellations or Systemic constellations is a therapeutic approach designed to help reveal the hidden dynamics in a family or relationship in order to address any stressors impacting these relationships and heal them. 

This approach offers the issue holder (the individual who requested a family constellation) an insight into the issue for which they are seeking help even though the issue is not fully resolved. 

Family constellations are based on the idea that problems affecting you now have been passed down from your ancestors. The stress, the trauma they lived through can be passed down to the next generation. (Epigenetics). One person’s grief, pain, loss can influence the whole family without everyone knowing about the cause. 

This work helps you to uncover what’s been hidden and this helps you to get unstuck and create changes in your life. It looks at you and your issue as a part of a system (whether it is a family system or another system).

Family constellations therapy can be used for a wide variety of problems including physical, mental, social or spiritual issues. It can help you overcome problems like, but not limited to:

  • seeking to address negative or harmful relationship patterns
  • want to be in a romantic relationship
  • resolve family entanglements
  • want to overcome inner turmoil
  • have experienced significant trauma or loss 
  • in search of personal and professional success


The work is done either in a group setting or on a 1-2-1 session. As a group setting there is a facilitator, the issue holder and helpers. The helpers are there to represent the elements of the problem the issue holder would like to work with. 

On a 1-2-1 session the facilitator is using figurines to represent the issue.
