“Systemic Reintegration work”

Family and Systemic Constellations Certification Program (Online) for therapists, practitioners and facilitators (2021-2022).

This is an invitation for a deep professional healing and learning process – Becoming  a facilitator of Family Constellations, leading your clients through reconnecting with their ancestral roots and  disowned self-parts.


This is an invitation to promote a systemic, embodied healing of what was broken or disconnected and allowing for deep support to come from within them and from the connection with the ancestors and the entire tapestry of life.

These are turbulent times, with lock-downs and limitations imposed on our work as therapists, practitioners and facilitators who meet people in person.

As professionals, we need to learn how to offer even more support, healing, connection and reintegration.
We need to to do so also online, to be able to be there for our clients and students, whatever the external conditions.

This practical training program is aimed at giving you the knowledge, skills, perspective and confidence to fully integrate Family Constellations into your current practice, from an early stage of the program.

* The course is described in detail here so that you will know everything you need to in order to make an informed choice to commit to it.

Enroll in the program to give yourself a solid and expansive foundation in Family Constellations, and the freedom to work and help people in new ways, in person and also online, maintaining your practice at all conditions.

Family & Systemic Constellations

Family Constellations, developed by Bert Hellinger, is a healing modality which views many of our issues and challenges as either influenced or stemming from unresolved and often unacknowledged inter-generational trauma– The trauma of our ancestors, family members and our society. This is in addition to our personal experiences.

Family Constellations allow us to directly address the sources of our conflicts and struggles, work with physical symptoms, emotional & relationship issues, with anything which deeply affects our life.

Family Constellations offer a systemic, compassionate, inclusive and clear gaze at the origins of our (and our family members) suffering  offering healing movements which has the power to re-structure our family system and help us re-integrate with disowned self parts and excluded family members.

This deeply transformative modality restores harmony, a sense of belonging, agency and power to ourselves and our clients.

”Apart from the fact that learning experiences like to hide in our normal everyday life, they tend to be mercilessly noticeable during my work with groups. Escaping, or ”know it already!”, does not work.
Uncomfortable? Yes. Boring? Never.

Especially new information, just acquired as ”secure knowledge” is prone to being pulled away from under my feet with regularity; and often the opposite of the logical proves correct, but without me being able to rely on it.

And, as time goes by, all my convictions about how life ought to work keep loosing their grip.

But what remains is that I keep stumbling on these breathtaking lookouts–showing the wonders of this life with all its beauty–that I can not help but want to share them with everyone and the entire world!”
