Family Constellations

Systemic Family Constellations looks at how experiences within our family system can affect how we live our lives, loves and maintain healthy relationships.

People may suffer from the burden of anxiety; depression; addiction; eating disorders; inability to sustain healthy relationships; self harming or even suicidal feelings.

These burdens can often be due to the residual actions of past generations on the present family members.

How does it work?

It is very much like Gestalt therapy which focuses on the whole of an individual's experience; their thoughts, feelings and actions, and concentrates on the 'here and now' - what is happening from one moment to the next.

The client comes seeking resolution for their issues and the therapist provides a safe space within which to explore them.

In the session the therapist may use coloured felt squares, stones, shells or figures to represent family members, both past and present, in order to explore, recognise and acknowledge a family's past history and current dynamics.

In this way understanding, acceptance and resolution of personal issues may be achieved.
