Family Constellations

These 90 minute (or two hour) sessions are given either in person in my clinic or online. This wonderful modality, developed by Bert Hellinger, explores how deep forces in our family systems, even over generations, may influence our thoughts, behaviours, health & emotions.

We tap into a "knowing field" that surrounds each family to explore this living phenomenon. One can gain a new perspective about self and members of our family and let go of what no longer serves and what may block transformation.

Typically, we may explore issues such as self sabotage, difficult relationship with parents & siblings as the hidden dynamics within the family system are revealed and transformed. Figurines and footprints are used to represent family members.

Vered creates a representational “field” on a table with various figurines. Figurines are chosen to represent oneself and other people and concepts in one’s life and are moved around accordingly.

Testimonial, Jose from Camden

"This process was amazing. It was like watching the elements of my psyche represented in this field of figurines. By virtue of what I chose to represent family members and concepts in my life, the truth of my subconscious feelings were revealed. For all my 33 years I had hated my step-mother and somehow through this process I was able to feel a level of empathy as I understood that she was the "victim" of her own family field and story. The session allowed me to rearrange my heart space around my personal narrative. Thank you Vered for liberating me from the darkness of holding hatred."

Testimonial, Leonard from Willoughby

"I treasure my constellation sessions with Vered once a month. I now understand that giving a place, within my system, for family members and other significant people who have played a role in my life, is very important for mental and emotional balance. I had not spoken to my son for many years, due to his new fundamentalist beliefs. With Vered's help, by choosing various figurines to represent myself, my son and my emotions, I was able to balance my system, neither condoning nor condemning the issue, just acknowledging that which is. This resulted in a sense of acceptance and balance and interestingly, we now have a father/son relationship which was never before possible."

Testimonial, Terry from Central Coast

"In one session, Vered instructed me to choose figurines to represent my parents, children, siblings and grandparents. It was strangely and deeply moving and through this process, I could understand the intergenerational trauma which was showing up in my life."
