Family Constellations is a therapeutic approach developed by Bert Hellinger- a Gestalt and Systems Therapist. It is a psycho-dynamic and spiritual approach to resolving current problems by looking into family systems and ancestral lines.
In Family Constellations, current problems are perceived as stemming back to emotional and physical entanglements, exclusions (secrets), disordering of responsibilities (e.g. a child carrying a parent emotionally) and traumas. These get passed on unconsciously and energetically from previous generations of the family, even if those who are affected currently are unaware of the original event or trauma in the past.
Family Constellations requires us to put aside our own experience of the world and assume an attitude of ‘not knowing’ and to enter the experience of the constellation with openness, curiosity and without judgements.
How it works.
In Family Constellations, the facilitator creates an open space for whatever needs to come out to come out. It uses a somatic approach and favors a whole body sensing and feeling experience over thinking and analysing, to uncover hidden dynamics of the unconscious mind and soul.
The facilitator will ask you to briefly describe an issue that is impacting you the most right now. The clearer you are about the issue, the deeper the constellation will go. The facilitator will then ask you to give some information about your current family, family of origin (parents) and both maternal and paternal grandparents. You will be asked about any major traumas in you family line such as death, divorce, migration, war, pregnancy loss and abuse. From the information you have given, the facilitator usually decides who will be represented in your constellation.
In private individual sessions you will be asked to choose objects or pieces of felt material provided by the facilitator to represent yourself, your family members and current issues. You will then be asked to place the pieces of felt material on the floor, placing every one of your family members in relationship to yourself. The facilitator will then ask you to step onto each piece of felt material, which represent yourself and your family, and ask you what you feel in your body. You will experience various sensations. The facilitator will also step onto each piece. Based on both your responses, the family constellation will unfold. Therefore the facilitator will both guide the process as well as represent various people in your family.
You will then view your constellation unfold through this process.
It’s brief therapy
Family Constellations is brief, solution focussed therapy therefore usually two or three sessions are enough. Family Constellation work takes you to the core of an issue, therefore rapidly resolves long held difficulties. If you are someone who has tried various healing therapies but still find that you are holding on to things, then Family Constellations might be key to you finally letting it all go.
