"Children seldom or never dare to live a happier or more fulfilling life than their parents. Unconsciously they remain loyal to unspoken family traditions that work invisibly. Family Constellations are a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations."
Family Constellations is an approach for revealing the hidden dynamics in a family so that they can be worked with and healed. Developed by Bert Hellinger, Family Constellation technique involves family representation through the use of others.
Family Constellation helps you recognize hidden dynamics in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Through this approach you can work and heal the dysfunctional dynamics that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.
Family Constellations are based in solution/oriented interventions base on Systemic Family Therapy. Systemic Family Therapy considers the individual as part of a greater whole, a family system, rather than as a separate entity. The individual behavior, feelings and attitudes have to be understood in the context of this larger group.
As in any other system, unspoken laws operating in the family guide behavior that the family members are generally unaware of. Suffering usually arises in a family member when one or more members of the system unconsciously violate these archaic laws.
They do this unintentionally, not out of rebelliousness as one might expect, but out of love – a ‘blind’ love.
Family Constellation can be helpful:
- in difficult relationships
- to find a relationship
- to find own freedom
- to uncover hidden dysfunctional dynamics
- to overcome inner or external conflicts
- to achieve professional success
- to “allow” yourself to be happy and successful
- to increase motivation
We offer two Family Constellations modalities:
