Originally trained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist, Barbara has been working with constellations since 1997, one year after the Founder, Bert Hellinger first came to England. Her experience of the work has been personally transformative and as best she can, Barbara ‘walks her talk’. She sees family constellations as a way of life and her pursuit of ‘truth’ as far as that is ever possible, leads to a deep commitment to the work she does. Second only to family, it is her guiding passion.
She is currently training people in the UK and Romania and runs workshops in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Lithuania. Her role as Editor of The Knowing Field began in 2004 when she took over from Barbara Stones and Jutta ten Herkel. Within a year, she doubled the size of the journal and the frequency of publication. As Editor, she is privileged to have access to the latest developments in the work worldwide and is fascinated by the progress constellation work is making across the globe.
Author of an introductory book on Constellation work: Coming Home: A First step into the world of Family Constellations, Barbara is also in the process of writing three books under the generic title Reflections on Motherhood. Vol.I The Birth Process is already published and Vol.II A Different Path for the Soul will be ready very soon.
