Whether they are therapists, counsellors, coaches, or other professionals, participants explore how constellations can enhance their existing modalities and interventions. The objective is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to effectively incorporate constellations work into their practice and offer a systemic approach to their clients.
6. Continued professional development: Family and Systemic Constellations training programs often emphasise the importance of ongoing professional development. Participants are encouraged to continue their learning journey by attending workshops, engaging in supervision, participating in advanced training, and staying connected with the constellations community. Continued professional development helps facilitators refine their skills, stay updated on current practices, and deepen their understanding of constellations work.

These programs focus on deepening facilitation skills, refining observational abilities, and exploring advanced interventions and systemic approaches.
4. Personal growth and self-reflection: The training program can also be suitable for individuals who are primarily interested in personal growth and self-reflection. Constellations work offers a powerful tool for exploring personal dynamics, ancestral patterns, and unresolved issues. Engaging in the training program can provide a transformative experience, deepen self-awareness, and facilitate personal healing and growth.
HealingPoint Constellations Trainings offer multiple levels of training, allowing participants to progress and deepen their knowledge and skills over time.
1. Family dynamics and relationships: Family constellations can delve into family dynamics, such as parent-child relationships, sibling dynamics, intergenerational patterns, family conflicts, and issues related to inheritance or family secrets. Constellations can provide insights into unresolved issues, ancestral influences, and hidden loyalties within the family system.
2. Personal growth and self-exploration: HealingPoint Family and Systemic Constellations training can support personal growth and self-exploration. Participants can address their own personal issues, beliefs, and challenges, gaining insights into their own systemic influences and entanglements. Constellations work can facilitate healing, release emotional blocks, and foster self-awareness and personal transformation.
3. Trauma and healing: Family and Systemic Constellations training often includes a trauma-informed approach. Constellations can be used to explore trauma and its impact on individuals and families. This approach can provide opportunities for healing and resolution, addressing trauma-related entanglements and supporting individuals in finding new paths towards resilience and well-being.
4. Organisational dynamics and team issues: Constellations work can be applied to organisational settings, addressing issues related to team dynamics, leadership challenges, communication breakdowns, and systemic obstacles within organisations. It can help identify hidden dynamics, power imbalances, and systemic blocks, supporting the development of healthier and more productive organisational systems.
5. Health and well-being: Family and Systemic Constellations training can also be applied to health-related issues. Constellations can explore the systemic influences on health conditions, chronic illnesses, and patterns of well-being within individuals and families. It can help uncover underlying emotional or relational factors that contribute to physical or psychological symptoms, guiding towards healing and greater well-being.
6. Community and societal issues: Constellations work can extend beyond individual and family systems to address broader community and societal issues. It can shed light on societal patterns, cultural influences, and collective traumas. Constellations can explore topics such as social justice, intercultural dynamics, historical legacies, and collective healing within communities.
It is important to note that while HealingPoint Family and Systemic Constellations training can address a wide range of issues, it is not a substitute for therapy or professional treatment. Constellations work is typically used as a complementary approach within a broader therapeutic or helping context. Qualified professionals should be sought for issues requiring clinical assessment, diagnosis, or treatment.
1. Accessibility: Online training provides greater accessibility, as it allows participants from different geographic locations to join without the need for travel. It enables individuals who may not have local access to in-person training to participate and benefit from constellations work.
2. Flexibility: Online training offers flexibility in terms of scheduling. Participants can engage in training sessions from the comfort of their own homes or offices, eliminating the need for travel and allowing for more convenient time options.
3. Technology: Online training relies on digital platforms and technology. Participants need access to a reliable internet connection and appropriate devices (computer, webcam, microphone) to fully engage in the training. Familiarity with online platforms and tools is beneficial for a smooth learning experience.
4. Personal environment: Online training allows participants to engage in constellations work within their personal environment. This can provide a sense of comfort and safety, especially when exploring personal or sensitive topics. However, it's important to create a private and distraction-free space for the training sessions.
1. Physical presence: In-person training allows for direct physical presence and in-person interactions with trainers and other participants. This can facilitate a deeper sense of connection, presence, and energetic engagement during constellations processes.
2. Embodied experience: In-person training provides a more embodied experience as participants can observe and engage with representatives and the constellations field in a physical space. This can enhance the sensory and intuitive aspects of the constellations work.
3. Group dynamics: In-person training fosters a sense of community and group dynamics, allowing for spontaneous interactions, shared experiences, and supportive relationships among participants. It can create a rich learning environment through in-person discussions, feedback, and collaboration.
4. Practical exercises: In-person training may offer more opportunities for hands-on practical exercises, such as physical movements, body-oriented techniques, and experiential activities that are easier to facilitate in a physical space.
Both online and in-person training can provide valuable learning experiences. At HealingPoint Constellations we offer both options for workshops. Training Modules are currently provided online with continued practical training is also provided online: accessibility and flexibility being the main reasons.
1. Personal growth and self-exploration: Family and Systemic Constellations training provides an opportunity for personal growth and self-exploration. It can help individuals gain deeper insights into themselves, their beliefs, and their patterns of behaviour. Even without specific family or relationship issues, constellations work can offer valuable insights and support personal transformation.
2. Systemic awareness: Constellations work focuses on the interconnectedness and systemic influences that shape our lives. By engaging in training, individuals can develop a systemic lens through which they perceive and understand various aspects of their personal and professional life. This broader perspective can enhance their decision-making, problem-solving, and overall well-being.
3. Professional applications: Family and Systemic Constellations training can be applied to various professional contexts beyond therapy or coaching. It can benefit professionals in fields such as organisational development, leadership, education, or community work. The systemic understanding and interventions learned in constellations training can enhance their ability to navigate complex systems and promote healthy dynamics.
4. Resilience and personal resources: Constellations work can help individuals tap into their personal resources, strengths, and resilience. It can uncover hidden potentials, identify patterns that hinder growth, and provide opportunities for healing and integration. This aspect of constellations training can be valuable for individuals seeking personal empowerment and self-discovery.
5. Broader perspectives: Family and Systemic Constellations training exposes participants to a range of systemic concepts, principles, and approaches. Even without specific family or relationship issues, individuals can benefit from a broader understanding of systemic dynamics, collective influences, and intergenerational patterns. This expanded awareness can contribute to personal and professional development.
It's important to remember that while constellations work can be valuable for individuals without specific family or relationship issues, it is not a substitute for therapy or professional treatment. Constellations training is often used as a complementary approach within a broader therapeutic or helping context. Participants should seek appropriate professional support for any specific concerns or challenges they may have.
1. Systemic perspective: Family and Systemic Constellations training offers a systemic perspective that focuses on understanding the underlying dynamics and patterns within systems. By exploring the interconnectedness of family members or elements of a system, constellations work can bring to light hidden entanglements, unresolved conflicts, and systemic barriers that contribute to issues. This systemic perspective can provide valuable insights and open pathways for resolution.
2. Awareness and understanding: Family and Systemic Constellations training helps individuals gain a deeper awareness and understanding of the systemic influences impacting their family or system. It can uncover intergenerational patterns, ancestral influences, and hidden loyalties that contribute to ongoing challenges. This increased awareness can facilitate healing, promote empathy, and support individuals in making conscious choices to break unhealthy patterns.
3. Emotional release and healing: Constellations work often involves accessing and expressing emotions within a safe and supportive environment. This can allow for emotional release, healing, and the integration of unresolved experiences or traumas. By acknowledging and honouring the emotions that emerge during constellations, individuals can find relief and experience a sense of resolution.
4. Systemic shifts and solutions: Family and Systemic Constellations training provides opportunities for systemic shifts and solutions. Through the constellation process, alternative movements, repositioning of representatives, or healing sentences can be offered to create a new balance and restore harmony within the system. These interventions can support resolution and positive changes within family or systemic dynamics.
5. Individual and collective healing: Constellations work acknowledges the impact of individual experiences on the collective system and vice versa. By addressing both the individual and collective aspects, Family and Systemic Constellations training aims to facilitate healing at multiple levels. This holistic approach recognises the interconnectedness of individuals within the larger system and seeks to restore balance and well-being.
It's important to note that the effectiveness of Family and Systemic Constellations training in resolving family or systemic issues may depend on various factors, including the complexity of the issues, the level of commitment and engagement from participants, the skill and experience of the facilitator, and the specific context in which the constellations work is applied.
It's also worth mentioning that constellations work is typically used as a complementary approach within a broader therapeutic or helping context. For complex or deeply rooted issues, it may be necessary to seek additional professional support, such as therapy or counselling, alongside constellations work.
Ultimately, the impact and effectiveness of Family and Systemic Constellations training can vary from individual to individual and situation to situation. It's important for individuals to approach constellations work with an open mind, realistic expectations, and a willingness to engage in the process of exploration and healing.
1. Emotional intensity: Constellations work can evoke intense emotions as participants explore and engage with personal and systemic issues. This emotional intensity can be both cathartic and healing, but it may also be overwhelming for some individuals. It's crucial to ensure that participants have the necessary emotional support during and after constellations sessions.
2. Trauma triggers: Family and Systemic Constellations training may touch upon past traumas or unresolved experiences. While the intention is to promote healing, it is possible that the constellation process can trigger or reawaken traumatic memories or emotions. Sonja is a trained trauma facilitator who is mindful of this possibility and has the skills to provide appropriate support or referrals when needed.
3. Not a substitute for therapy: HealingPoint Family and Systemic Constellations training is not a substitute for therapy or professional treatment. While it can be a valuable adjunctive approach, it may not address all the complexities of specific mental health or clinical conditions. Participants with severe or acute psychological issues should seek appropriate professional support alongside constellations work.
4. Limited scientific evidence: Although Family and Systemic Constellations training has gained popularity and anecdotal evidence of its effectiveness exists, it is important to note that the approach has limited empirical research supporting its efficacy. The field of constellations work is still evolving, and more rigorous scientific research is needed to validate its outcomes.
5. Facilitator competency: The effectiveness and safety of Family and Systemic Constellations training depend on the skills, training, and experience of the facilitator. Sonja is an experienced facilitator and trainer.
6. Potential for misinterpretation: Family and Systemic Constellations training involves working with symbolic representations and metaphors. There is a risk of misinterpreting or misunderstanding the information that emerges during the constellations process. Facilitators should be skilled in navigating and facilitating constellations to minimise misinterpretations and ensure accurate insights.
7. Ethical considerations: Family and Systemic Constellations training involves personal and sensitive information. It is important for facilitators to maintain confidentiality, respect boundaries, and create a safe and inclusive space for participants. Ethical guidelines should be followed to protect the well-being and privacy of individuals involved.
It is essential for individuals considering Family and Systemic Constellations training to make informed decisions, engage with qualified professionals, and ensure they have appropriate support systems in place. Open communication with the facilitator and understanding the potential risks and limitations can contribute to a safer and more beneficial experience.
1. Integrative therapy: Family and Systemic Constellations training can be integrated into various therapeutic modalities, such as psychodynamic therapy, cognitive -behavioural therapy (CBT), experiential therapy, or mindfulness-based approaches. Constellations work can provide a systemic perspective and experiential techniques that complement and enrich these therapeutic approaches.
2. Trauma therapy: Family and Systemic Constellations training can be integrated into trauma-focused therapies, such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) or Somatic Experiencing (SE). Constellations work can support the exploration and resolution of underlying systemic influences and ancestral trauma that may contribute to an individual's trauma symptoms.
3. Gestalt therapy: Family and Systemic Constellations training aligns well with the principles and techniques of Gestalt therapy. The experiential nature of constellations work and the focus on the here-and-now can complement the process-oriented and holistic approach of Gestalt therapy.
4. Mind-body approaches: Family and Systemic Constellations training can be combined with mind-body interventions like mindfulness, meditation, or body-oriented therapies such as Somatic Therapy or Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. Constellations work can deepen the embodied experience and enhance the integration of mind and body awareness.
5. Family therapy: Family and Systemic Constellations training naturally integrates with family therapy approaches. Constellations work provides a powerful tool to explore and address family dynamics, intergenerational patterns, and unresolved conflicts within the family system. It can be used as a stand-alone family therapy approach or as a complementary tool within a broader family therapy framework.
6. Coaching and personal development: Family and Systemic Constellations training can be integrated into coaching and personal development practices. Constellations work can support clients in gaining systemic insights, uncovering hidden dynamics, and exploring blocks or entanglements that hinder personal growth and success.
It's important to note that when integrating Family and Systemic Constellations training with other therapeutic approaches, it's crucial to have the necessary skills, knowledge, and training in both areas. Collaborating with professionals who are experienced in constellations work and the specific therapeutic approach can help ensure a cohesive and effective integration of interventions.
1. Confidentiality: Participants should expect that personal information shared during Family and Systemic Constellations training sessions will be treated with confidentiality. Facilitators and practitioners should adhere to ethical guidelines and ensure that participants' privacy is respected and protected. It is important to establish clear guidelines and boundaries regarding the sharing and storage of personal information.
2. Informed consent: Participants should be provided with clear and comprehensive information about the nature of constellations work, the potential benefits and risks involved, and the facilitator's qualifications and experience. Informed consent should be obtained prior to engaging in constellations sessions, ensuring that participants have a clear understanding of what to expect and have the opportunity to ask questions or voice any concerns.
3. Respect for autonomy and self-determination: Family and Systemic Constellations training should be conducted in a manner that respects and supports the autonomy and self-determination of participants. Individuals should have the freedom to choose their level of participation, including the option to decline or modify any aspects of the constellation process. The facilitator should create a safe and inclusive space where participants feel empowered to make their own choices.
4. Competence and qualifications: Facilitators and practitioners offering Family and Systemic Constellations training should possess the necessary competence, knowledge, and qualifications to conduct constellations work. They should have received appropriate training, supervision, and ongoing professional development to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the sessions. Participants should feel confident in the facilitator's expertise and ethical conduct.
5. Boundaries and dual relationships: Facilitators should maintain clear boundaries and avoid dual relationships with participants. Dual relationships refer to situations where the facilitator has multiple roles or relationships with the same individual (e.g., acting as a therapist and a constellations facilitator for the same person). This can create conflicts of interest or impair the facilitator's objectivity and should be avoided to ensure ethical practice.
6. Cultural sensitivity and inclusivity: Family and Systemic Constellations training should be conducted with cultural sensitivity and inclusivity. Facilitators should respect and value the diversity of participants, including their cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and identities. It's important to create a non-judgmental and inclusive environment where all participants feel safe and respected.
7. Continuing professional development and self-reflection: Facilitators should engage in ongoing professional development, supervision, and self-reflection to ensure ethical practice and maintain their competence in constellations work. They should stay informed about current research, ethical guidelines, and best practices in the field, and be open to feedback and self-improvement.
These are general ethical considerations, and it's important to note that different professional organisations or associations may have their own specific ethical guidelines for constellations work. HealingPoint Constellations follows ethics and values as per the Ethical Code as set out by SCASA.
1. Personal growth and healing: Training as a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator can be a transformative experience that promotes personal growth and healing.

Professionals in helping professions: Professionals in the fields of psychology, therapy, counselling, coaching, social work, and other helping professions can benefit from collaborating with a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator. Constellations work offers an additional therapeutic approach that complements their existing methods. It can provide valuable insights and interventions for addressing systemic issues, family dynamics, and complex relational challenges.
5. Organisational leaders and teams: Organisational leaders and teams can benefit from the expertise of a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator. Constellations can help uncover hidden dynamics, systemic entanglements, and blocks within teams or the overall organisational system. By addressing these systemic influences, leaders and teams can improve collaboration, resolve conflicts, and enhance overall organisational functioning.
6. Community and social systems: Communities and social systems facing challenges such as conflicts, social inequalities, or intergenerational issues can benefit from a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator. Constellations work can provide insights into the systemic dynamics at play and offer a space for dialogue, understanding, and healing within the community or system.
It's important to note that the facilitator's role is to create a safe and supportive environment for exploration and resolution. Family and Systemic Constellations facilitators should have appropriate training, experience, and ethical practice to effectively work with individuals, families, and systems in a responsible and respectful manner.
1. Theoretical foundations: Our training program typically provides a solid understanding of the theoretical foundations and principles of Family and Systemic Constellations. This includes studying the work of pioneers such as Bert Hellinger and other influential figures in the field. Participants learn about the systemic perspective, the concept of family systems, and the dynamics of entanglements and intergenerational patterns.
2. Experiential learning: Training to become a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator is highly experiential. Participants engage in numerous constellations exercises and have the opportunity to experience constellations as both representatives and facilitators. This hands-on approach allows for a deeper understanding of the process, dynamics, and effects of constellations work. We offer ongoing 4 monthly online training and practice sessions.
3. Systemic interventions and techniques: Our training program teaches a range of systemic interventions and techniques used in Family and Systemic Constellations. These may include setting up and facilitating constellations, exploring representative movements, working with objects or figures to represent family members or elements of a system, and utilising rituals or healing sentences to support the resolution of entanglements.
4. Ethical considerations and professional guidelines: Our training emphasises ethical considerations and professional guidelines in Family and Systemic Constellations work. This includes addressing issues of confidentiality, boundaries, consent, and the facilitator's role in supporting clients' well-being. Ethical guidelines and standards specific to constellations work are typically covered in depth.
5. Supervision and feedback: We provide opportunities for supervision and feedback to support participants' learning and development. Supervision allows for reflection on practice, guidance, and constructive feedback from experienced facilitators or trainers. This process helps participants integrate their learning, deepen their understanding, and refine their facilitation skills.
6. Integration and application: Our training programs encourage participants to integrate Family and Systemic Constellations into their professional practice. This may involve exploring how constellations work can be applied to various contexts, such as individual therapy, couples counselling, organisational development, or community work. Participants are encouraged to develop their own style and approach while staying true to the core principles of constellations.
7. Continuing professional development: Training to become a Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator is often seen as a stepping stone rather than a one-time event. Many facilitators engage in ongoing professional development, attending workshops, conferences, and advanced training programs to deepen their skills, expand their knowledge, and stay updated on developments in the field.
It's important to note that the duration and intensity of training programs can vary. Some programs offer introductory or foundational workshops.
