History and Methods of Family Constellation Therapy
Family Constellation is a diagnostic tool which aids in identifying the core issue in the lives of the people in their relationships. It is a subset application of Systematic Constellation. Hidden dynamics, often spanning two or three generations, may appear in the family “field” and lead to distress, illness and emotional difficulties.
This work requires, while at the same time deepens, profound respect for the mystery of life and the forces that shape it and move you towards peace in the soul.” Professor J.Edward Lynch. Unfortunately, these loyalties don’t necessarily serve us later in life, and we usually are unaware that we continue to attempt to balance unresolved energies in our families of origin.
In family constellations, we look to understand the impact of unresolved family issues, or secrets, and often become more aware of influences that our ancestors’ fates may still have in our life. Once these connections are identified a healing process can unfold in which we look for the love that is inherent in most families but which is often obscured by pain, fear, and anger.
Family Constellation Therapy in India has become the fastest-growing psychotherapeutic technique which is becoming quite popular. This dynamic and evolutionary therapy was originally developed by Bert Hellinger who recognized that we’re all unconsciously linked in a complex system of bonding relationships over three or four generations. It has the potential to touch our deepest cores, transforming our lives and the lives of those around us.

Family Constellations is a therapeutic approach through which we can explore the deeper, unconscious dynamics in family systems. As we search for the deeper movements of the soul, we often discover how loyal children are to their families and how much their need to belong influences their actions. Each of us inherits psychological or emotional problems from previous generations that we take for our own.
Family Constellations and movements of the Soul is an alive, uniquely fresh phenomenological experience.
