Constellations in Individual Therapy and Coaching

This advanced training module is designed for constellation facilitators and trainees that are interested in deepening and extending their knowledge and practice of working with individuals using constellations in one on one therapy, coaching or online. It does not cover the basics of constellation facilitation and therefore only suitable and open to those who have the fundamentals in place.

Nature Constellations with Francesca Mason-Boring

Nature Constellations will allow facilitators of systems constellation to expand their practice by beginning to more consciously include nature in their facilitation of family, organizational, community, collective, and all applications of systems constellation. This content will also provide several specific templates and resources which will allow you to consider whether you might wish to offer a constellation workshop which specifically addresses issues around land management, identifying specific support for clients through the inclusion of Nature in constellation.
