Art and Practice
Who is this for? - Those who wish to deepen their understanding of this work for their own personal development. Those who are interested in the above and who also want to integrate this way of thinking into their work with others in whatever form that may be.
I have been lucky enough to train with some of the most influential and inspirational Constellators, including Bert Hellinger, Judith Hemming and Jan Jacob Stam, and have run a variety of trainings in this work in Egypt, Singapore and the UK.
I am a great advocate of the Constellation process, personal development, the journey to Wholeness, and the paths that may involve.
If you're at all interested in diving deeper into this process then this way of working has a variety of applications and benefits whether you're a lay person, coach or practitioner.
Where to start?
I offer a variety of different courses to suit - some of which build on each other, some of which are stand alone -
3 Day Introduction to the Practice and Principles of systemic Constellations for Personal and Professional Development
This 3 day introduction to the basic principles and practice of this work is designed for anyone who might want to find out more about this fascinating way of exploring some of life’s challenges…
With practical exercises, discussions and tutoring participants over the 3 days will explore subjects such as;-
The role of the Orders (organising principles) in Systems – Time, Place, Belonging, Acknowledgment and Exchange. Practical exercises that you can also use on yourself or others, demonstrate how these ‘invisible’ organising principles affect an Individual’s System – sometimes simply acknowledging the impact is enough to relax the system and allow a space for change.
Somatic Experience and working in the ‘Field’ – What is it, why is it important, how do we recognise and connect with it and what do we do with it.
Mapping the system – Learn how to use floor markers, objects or paper to create a spatial representation of issues to include people and events that may have previously been overlooked, ignored or excluded to help bring new information into a previously stuck system.
The role of ‘conscience’ in the individual or business – start to see the yourself as part of a greater system of family, culture and environment – very useful in highlighting hidden loyalties that may be deeply buried in your system and entangling you in matters that are a legacy of others and not your own.
Sentences – sentences that state a truth, or highlight an entanglement can be important in helping a system relax and are often the hardest part to grasp. At this stage we will explore some simple statements and guidance that might help relieve the pressure on the system and create some movement where previously there was none.
Please Note – Participation in this workshop is likely to involve some personal processing and the 3 days are about serving the needs of the group. Depending on demand we may or may not get to cover all of the subject matter quoted above and we may substitute with other exercises. We will follow the ‘Field’ and stand in the ‘unknown’.
3 Day Introductory Training
Dip your Toes
Coaching with the System in Mind
A 2 Day Practical Training for Therapists, Life and Business Coaches
Having participated in business Constellation trainings with The Whole Partnership and John Whittington, and latterly, Jan Jacob Stam, I offer a basic Coaching training for business and life coaches. Originally taught as a 5 day “Coaching with the System in Mind” course in Egypt and Singapore the course material has been adapted to blend with the 3 Day Essentials training with these extra 2 days more focused on Practical exercises and techniques you can take and use in your practice as a Therapist/Coach.
Who is it for? -
Those who wish to deepen their understanding of the working practice of Systemic Constellations in a one to one setting. This is a unique opportunity to bring systemic constellations into your practice, enhance your skills as a practitioner and learn new techniques to work with your clients and their personal or business challenges.
While still focused on personal development, this workshop is more practical and business oriented and designed to give the participant an experience and understanding of the power of the constellating process in a coaching environment.
With plenty of practical exercises that can be easily learnt and utilised in the participants coaching practice it’s also a great introduction to Systemic principles and thinking.
The aim is for the participant to gain the confidence and ability to go out and use some of the coaching constellations techniques in their everyday life and work.
Pre requisites – a 3 Day Introduction training of basic principles and practice with Elaine or the equivalent. (If you haven’t done an Intro training with Elaine please contact to assess your suitability.)

"This can be a life changing experience - bring your whole self, you and your ancestors wont regret it."

Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
