Family Constellations
People bring their unique story to family constellations. Opening ourselves to the bigger picture is often a way to bring clarity to the difficulties - big and small - we experience in our lives

Clare Crombie offers an opportunity to experience the approach known as 'Systemic Family Constellations'

Clare lives and works from home in Oxford. During the pandemic she offered Zoom workshops and now her return to in-person workshops will be in Edinburgh on Sunday 6th November. She is also available for one-to-one constellation sessions online, for those who are interested or who cannot attend a workshop. In April 2023, she will be co-teaching the CSC Foundation training in Edinburgh.

Why come to a constellation workshop?

The Constellation approach offers a healing methodology that allows us to gain insight into ourselves and our current struggles; as we open our minds and hearts to a bigger picture. At a constellation workshop we use the group to create a ‘living map’ of a larger set of systems – our family, the community, society. We take into account the intergenerational transmission of trauma, and the feelings and learned survival systems that may be inhibiting our growth and potential. 

Using this process we hope to bring into relationship parts of ourselves, or our world, that have become separated; and in doing so, with warmth, support and empathy, we may encounter a greater capacity for healing within ourselves.

How can a constellation workshop help?

This approach has the capacity to clarify hidden dynamics – for example the trauma or difficulties that may have been experienced by previous generations; or rejected and painful emotions that have had to be suppressed within the family; which may be actively burdening or entangling you in the here and now. Difficult events often result in people being excluded from a family’s narrative of their history, while simultaneously being burdened by what they unconsciously carry from the past. The strength and energy to live life more fully become more easily available when we are willing and able to see where the feelings have really come from. The constellation approach provides the opportunity to do this, in a non-judgmental and confidential space.

Who is it for?

This session is for anyone who is interested in joining our Foundation Training is Systemic Constellations and would like to discover more about how the course is run and what is involved. More details about the training course can be found here.

The Foundation Training is for anybody who wishes to gain a fuller understanding, from a systemic constellation perspective, of the issues and concerns that they may have in their everyday life – this may be personal, familial or professional. The course can therefore be taken for both professional and personal development reasons.

What is the focus of this introduction?

It is an opportunity to meet the course facilitators  and get a first glimpse of the richness of a systemic constellation approach, which can be used to resolve personal, family and social issues. 

The Foundation Training has been running for over 20 years and is a valued resource for those wishing to engage in personal and professional development; it provides a truly fresh perspective on yourself, your life, your work and the family and community groups to which you belong.
