Do you feel like you’re stuck in a cycle of destructive family patterns? Do you find yourself struggling with emotional, mental, or physical issues that you can’t explain? Family constellation therapy may be the powerful tool you need to break free. This group therapy process helps you gain insight into your family system and relationship dynamics, unravel ancestral trauma, and heal destructive patterns.
During family constellation therapy, you’ll join a group of individuals to explore your family dynamics and work through issues such as illness, addiction, abuse, and mental or emotional problems. Family constellation therapy was developed by Bert Hellinger, a German psychologist who merged traditional Zulu ways with his expertise in group dynamics, psychoanalysis, bodywork, and Gestalt therapy.
By participating in a “resonant field,” you’ll uncover hidden patterns and dynamics within your family system that may be impacting your well-being. This therapy has helped countless individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their families.
