In 2001 some of the leading teachers and practitioners of systemic constellation work in the UK came together to form a training organisation. Today this is known as the Centre for Systemic Constellations.

An Educational Centre

For multi level learning and on-going professional development.

A Community of Belonging

For those passionate about the philosophy and practice of systemic constellation work

A Place of Inspiration

Where ideas can be learnt, shared and applied.

Upcoming Systemic Events

Training at the Centre will deepen your knowledge and understanding of systemic constellation work, and will support your professional and personal development. Here are a selection of our upcoming events, for more information see our Courses page. 

Perception – Where do we know our knowing, and not-knowing.

with Gaye Donaldson

Session 1 – 10 October 2022, Session 2 – 7 November 2022, Session 3 – 5 December 2022, Each online session will start at 5 pm and finish at 7.30 pm. UK time

Gaye will be running 3 on-line Masterclass sessions on ‘Perception – Where do we know our knowing, and not-knowing’.  The sessions will be stand alone, and will cover different topics. They also work as a deepening series.

Session 1 – will address how we know our knowing. Here we discuss the difference between head, heart and body knowing, and how to recognise the primary and secondary centres of awareness in our selves, and our clients. This understanding supports a deepened experience of systemic constellation work for all.

Session 2 – here we will explore how we can use the experience of our 12 senses to consciously widen our perception through a deepening connection with ourselves and our own extraordinary sensory capacities. This will include teaching on the physical senses, the soul senses and the spiritual senses.

Session 3 – considers empathy vs resonance,  and how we both tune into our inner knowing and empathic awareness whilst also keeping our own field clear and attending to energetic hygiene.

Couples Therapy Training

with Chris Williams and Jane James

It is a course designed for a number of different groups – for therapists and counsellors who want to learn the specific skills to work with couples, for coaches to work with two people systems, and for anyone else who wants to learn more about and struggle less in relationships. It is about navigating the journey of two people, addressing natural tensions and finding ways to mature and develop the relationship over time – which is applicable not only to intimate relationships but those in our wider circle of family, friends and colleagues.

The training is highly relevant if you work as a coach or therapist or constellation facilitator.  It provides the opportunity to extend your therapeutic or coaching practice to include working with couples or other two-person systems. It is assumed that you will already have basic skills in working with individuals, and therefore the course focus is on the shifts and additional skills needed to be of help when working with couples.

The Bridge and the River:

Using the Orders in Realtime to Orient Facilitation

with Richard Wallstein

The Orders are fundamental to forming a hypothesis and initial orientation to systemic work. Developing a  capacity to relate what one hears from the client to the Orders is thus essential.

What is the goal when we work systemically? To create an emotional response? To make something previously opaque suddenly clear? These events may occur but are not the aim of systemic work. Systemic work loosens the client’s present comprehension allowing an experience of an alternative present. Thus, we need to understand our client’s issue to support their movement from a state of fixed unease to one of greater ease with respect to that issue. Systemic work bridges these two states. The metaphor is apt: Bridges have structure, and, if we wish to work effectively, we need to understand systemic therapeutic structures and learn to utilise them. The Orders are the structure. Absent this knowledge, what often happens is that facilitators imagine that ‘the field’ will supply and apply that knowledge for them. This view leaves the client at risk and is based on a comprehension error – that the systemic field is oriented toward, understands, and provides what human beings (our clients) want and also saves the facilitator in the process. Rather, the facilitator, having learned and understood enough from the client to form a hypothesis, poses an experiment oriented toward the alternate present: the client and the field can then confirm, but not direct, the work the facilitator does

Upcoming Core Training

 

The  Foundation and Applied Trainings offer an opportunity to develop, and then extend, a working understanding of a systemic constellation approach, which can be used to resolve personal, family and social issues. These courses are a valued resource for those wishing to engage in personal and professional development. They provide a truly fresh perspective on yourself, your life, your work and the family and community groups to which you belong

Further Training

 

Our further training courses provide a community of practice and are part of our Continuing Professional Development series. Please note, however, they do not constitute a training in Systemic Constellation Work. We warmly welcome participants from a wide variety of professional contexts to join our events and explore the application of the systemic constellation approach in their work.

The Centre Community – Constellations in Action

Although Systemic Constellation Work began in the psychotherapeutic community, over the past 20 years that has changed. Many professionals, from many professional fields, now incorporate the systemic lens and methodology in to their professional work. Here are way in which our past students use their training.
