I was introduced to Family Constellation Therapy as part of my sessions with my psychiatrist, while I was working through personal issues. I was amazed how much of my Grandparent and parents life experiences I was entangled with, and how they were influencing my life. Becoming aware of these patterns and working through a healing process allowed me to move forward in my life where I was stuck and disassociated.
Just as we inherit physical traits from our parents, we also inherit emotional patterns that are unconscious and unspoken. Unaware of their influences upon us, we perpetuate family patterns of illness and disease, failure, unhappiness, addictions and alcoholism, depression etc. and pass them on to our children and generations thereafter.
In 2013, I completed a Shamanic Family Constellation course with Richard Higgins, and in 2015, I continued my studies with Tanja Meyburgh of African Family Constellation Therapy. In 2016, I attended a Trauma Constellation workshop which I found to be extra ordinarily profound.
I work with Family Constellation Therapy in a one on one setting. Just you and I. An initial session is usually about 90 minutes to 120 minutes. We go through the family history together and work with the issue that is most pertinent for you. Once you have completed your session, its advisable not to talk about your experience for at least two weeks. This allows for the deep processing to work on many levels.
