Topic:   the flow of Life and Love

Two days of softening and clarifying personal issues, through the method of family constellations and informal teaching around the issues and themes that emerge. With John Whittington. This will be held online.

When love and life itself are free to flow, we can thrive. However, limiting dynamics, hidden in the wider system, may prevent us from finding or keeping relationships in a healthy balance. For example, sustaining a couple relationship is challenging when system dynamics are at play; the bond between siblings can be easily bruised and the love between friends damaged. Parents and children can become entangled in limiting patterns that are challenging to resolve and play out in later life. This workshop offers opportunities to disentangle and soften some of the patterns in your family, intimate and other close relationships through facilitated constellations and teaching.

“Using the constellations methodology John can get to the heart of an issue in a way I would never have imagined possible.”

Topic:   Explore your relationship with Endings

In order to prepare for any kind of fresh start you will need to have ended, respectfully, whatever is over. So, if you are preparing for an ending or need to settle a feeling of incompletion around an ending in the past – in a personal, social or professional context – this constellation workshop will offer opportunities to clarify, align and complete. Come and explore the most effective ways to leave a relationship of any kind with compassion, respect and true separation.

With John Whittington, online.

“John’s insight and quiet wisdom are inspiring.”

The history of these workshops

Constellation workshops with John Whittington

I began training in family, professional and organisational constellations in 2004, whilst also training as a personal and executive coach. I facilitated family and personal issues constellations in public workshops for five years (2006 – 2011) to deepen and develop my understanding and experience of system dynamics. Meanwhile, in 2009, I launched the Coaching Constellations trainings in order to share the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching with others. As a result of the level of interest I wrote a book on the subject, published in 2012 and again, in 2nd edition and then, in fully updated and expanded 3rd edition in 2020.

All this led naturally to the creation of these Life Love Leadership workshops which I facilitate using constellations as the primary methodology. The workshops, held in a confidential small group environment, are designed to respectfully illuminate, clarify and resolve challenges, dilemmas and decisions: in life, in personal relationships and in working life. The workshops are open to those with interest whether new to constellations or already familiar with this remarkable methodology. At each workshop I offer structured introductory exercises and group constellations and enjoy responding to the needs of the participants in the moment in order to facilitate deeper understanding and fresh insights for everyone present.
