Demystifying Family Constellation Therapy: A Real and Transformative Healing Modality

Welcome to today’s dive into the intriguing world of Family Constellation Therapy. You may have heard whispers or seen headlines questioning its validity, so let’s unpack this together and explore why Family Constellation Therapy is indeed a real and transformative healing modality.

First and foremost, let’s address the skepticism surrounding Family Constellation Therapy. Some may question its legitimacy due to its unconventional approach and the profound experiences reported by participants. However, it’s essential to understand that skepticism often arises when faced with something unfamiliar or outside the realm of traditional therapy.

So, what exactly is Family Constellation Therapy?

At its core, it’s a therapeutic approach that delves into the interconnectedness of family systems and explores how unresolved issues or traumas can manifest across generations. Developed by Bert Hellinger, Family Constellation Therapy aims to bring hidden dynamics to light and facilitate healing within the family unit.

Now, you might be wondering, is Family Constellation Therapy real?

The answer is a resounding yes. While it may differ from traditional talk therapy in its methods, Family Constellation Therapy has been embraced by countless individuals and professionals worldwide for its profound impact on healing and transformation.

One of the key aspects of Family Constellation Therapy is its experiential nature. During a Constellation session, participants have the opportunity to embody various family members or elements of a problem, allowing them to gain insights from a new perspective. This immersive approach often leads to profound realizations and shifts in perception.

Furthermore, Family Constellation Therapy is grounded in systemic theory, which emphasizes the importance of understanding the broader context in which issues arise. By exploring the dynamics of the entire family system, rather than focusing solely on the individual, Family Constellation Therapy offers a comprehensive and holistic approach to healing.

How does Family Constellation Therapy work?

The process typically begins with the client presenting a question or issue they wish to explore. Through a series of guided exercises and role-playing, facilitated by a trained Constellations practitioner, hidden dynamics within the family system are brought to light. Participants often report feeling a sense of relief and resolution as they gain clarity on long-standing challenges.

Moreover, the effectiveness of Family Constellation Therapy is supported by countless testimonials from individuals who have experienced profound shifts in their lives as a result of Constellation work. Whether it’s resolving relationship issues, healing ancestral trauma, or gaining clarity on life purpose, Family Constellation Therapy has the power to catalyze deep and lasting change.

So yes, Family Constellation Therapy is not only real but also a potent and transformative healing modality. By delving into the interconnectedness of family systems and uncovering hidden dynamics, Constellation work offers a path to healing, reconciliation, and personal growth.

So, if you’re curious about exploring the depths of your family system and unlocking new insights, Family Constellation Therapy might just be the answer you’ve been seeking.

What My Clients Say

“No pain in the night, no pain when I got up, no pain when I went for a run and no pain now! It’s much more than I expected, thank you! "


"It is as though I have been gifted an entirely new lens through which to view human behaviour, and it is a lens of compassion and empathy like no other. Due to this, I have been able to come to terms with the way my family operates, which has proven to be a great relief. I would definitely recommend working with Lucy. She held such a safe space for me and my vulnerability with great compassion and authenticity."


"Using these techniques has helped me reduce the day-to-day tension I’ve developed over a lifetime of anxious habits and hypersensitivity. It’s been amazing to re-learn how my body works, and how to swap out the survival mechanisms that got me so far, for habits more in keeping with how my body is happier to work."

Alex Booer

“I’ve been doing the Alexander Technique with Lucy over the past few months and my posture has improved enormously. I have a greater awareness of how my body functions and can recognise the signs of when I’m falling into bad habits."

Paul Tolton, Actor

"I feel present. Nice to feel here, not racing ahead. I have a more measured, calm approach. I’m less reactive and am learning to look after myself and choose my responses.”


"I had a traumatic accident a few years ago. After you ‘wriggled’ my head it felt weird – and really good. I could walk evenly for the first time in years!! I’m making friends with my body.”

Zoe, Singer

"I have been happily surprised and have learned a lot about how my muscles and spine behave when I let them. I rapidly realised that AT is not in the least pseudoscience, rather it teaches one to be aware of how the body is holding itself."

Julian Davis, Retired Professor of Medicine & Pianist

"I've just had two enjoyable and useful sessions with Lucy on Zoom. I had been doubtful about how it would work but I was pleased with how it went. Of course, nothing is as good as face-to-face but we are where we are and this was great and has helped me to progress as I had hoped. Thank you. Looking forward to the next ones!"


"Lucy's sessions are amazing. Her unique blend of skills helped me have good posture without effort. Before this, I had seen many physiotherapists and osteopaths, but the pain kept coming back within a few weeks. Even after my first session with Lucy, the difference was so clear that my friends commented on it. After several months, the effects are being maintained with her support."
