Family constellations is a therapeutic approach that aims to help individuals gain insight into their family systems and address any underlying issues that may be affecting their personal lives.

In a family constellation session, the individual (known as the client) works with a trained facilitator to explore their family history and dynamics. This often involves creating a physical representation of the family system using people or objects to represent family members. The client may be asked to choose representatives for their family members, or the facilitator may use objects like stones or figures to represent each family member.

The facilitator will then guide the client through a series of exercises that aim to reveal hidden or unacknowledged family patterns and dynamics. For example, the facilitator may ask the client to place family members in different positions relative to one another or to verbalize their thoughts and emotions as they interact with the representation of their family.

Through this process, the client may gain insight into patterns of behavior or relationships that have been impacting their life in a negative way. The facilitator may also guide the client towards potential solutions or ways to shift their perspective on their family dynamics.

It’s important to note that family constellations is a controversial approach and has not been supported by scientific evidence. Some practitioners and clients report positive outcomes, while others question its effectiveness and ethics. It’s always a good idea to thoroughly research any therapeutic approach and choose a licensed and reputable practitioner if you decide to try it.
