Systemic Constellations

What are Constellations?

 

Imagine you could see the true essence of your issue unfold in front of your eyes. Constellations do just that. They map out what we are really struggling with in the here and now, create movement, and allow fresh solutions to emerge.

A Constellation is an experiential process through which we can see hidden, unconscious dynamics that affect the Self.

Instead of treating the troubled parts of our being as problems to get rid of, a Constellation reveals them as aspects that want to be seen.

The major insight of the Constellations approach is that at the root of problems that resist resolution are often trans-generational traumas that reverberate through a family system. When these are clearly understood, the disturbance is transformed. Then, we can behave authentically, and start creating positive solutions.

Constellations can help with a wide range of issues including

Personal & family issues

  • Relationship problems, separation, divorce
  • Painful relationship with parent(s)
  • Family Rifts
  • Parenting issues
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Persistent emotional symptoms (e.g. depression, anxiety, rage)
  • Working through traumatic experiences

Life & Work Issues

  • Personal issues impacting professional life
  • Inertia, ambivalence, feeling stuck
  • Life choices & decision points
  • Illness, physical symptoms
  • Personal or professional loss of direction
  • Inability to achieve what we want in life
  • Isolation and not belonging
Note: Constellations are a process for expanding understanding and awareness. They are not a diagnostic or treatment method for any psychological condition or disorder.

  • "Twice I had the opportunity to take part in Sara’s constellations workshops. Each time it gave me precious support. I not only appreciate her gentle approach, but I also benefited from her ability to sense my family burden. Sara is a very dedicated therapist and I would recommend her to anyone who needs to address issues."

  • "I had a single one to one session with Sara using constellation to try to work out a personal issue.  I gained valuable insight and a different perspective into the situation that I had not previously considered.  As a result, I left having greater empathy for my partner and understanding of some of the underlying challenges and issues he might be facing that have impacted our interaction."
