I was introduced to systemic work and constellations when I had a life question myself. One that I could not answer by going to regular therapy. I got the answers I needed by doing a constellation. 

I was thoroughly impressed. Not only did constellation work bring me the insights I needed to move forward, it did so in a surprisingly simple and intuitive way.    

Shortly after, I started to represent in other people’s constellations. But I wanted to know more. Which is why, over the course of multiple years, through education and extensive experience, I specialized in guiding constellations. And now I host constellations myself. It is truly humbling to be able to support other people’s processes and connect them with the knowledge they need to continue on their life’s path.

A constellation is a method based in systemic work. This means that the relations between people and events is centre-stage, not the individual. By zooming out, we enable participants to access information that is stored in the subconscious of the system. This will allow you to literally see the bigger picture. During a constellation, we work with whatever presents itself. It is believed that everything that needs to show itself, will show itself, at exactly the right time. This also means that it is impossible to hold a timer next to a constellation process. It is simply finished when it is finished. By embracing the systemic logic, we gain valuable insights that transcend our individual lives. Which allows us to take our place in the bigger scheme of things. 


1. Roles

There are three main roles when it comes to constellations. The client has a question or a theme they would like to examine. A representative represents someone or something in the constellated system of the client. And then there is the guide, who is the process leader.

2. Preparation

Before a constellation day, the guide has an interview with each client. During this conversation, the theme of the constellation is specified, as well as the elements of the starting constellation.

3. Check-in

On constellation day itself, the guide checks with the client if the theme and the list of elements to be constellated is still up to date. If need be, changes are made. This happens in front of the group and is the starting point of the technique. 

4. Starting constellation

When all is well, the client will, one by one, start to appoint representatives. The client stands behind them, with hands on the shoulders, while saying the words: “You now represent …” and then moves them intuitively to their place in the room. This will continue until all the relevant elements are constellated. 

5. Motion

Now the process of gaining information can begin. As of this moment, the client has a passive role. The guide’s role is to ensure the process is carefully managed. It is quite common that motion appears. The guide will check with the client regularly. The process will continue until the main theme of the client is addressed, and sufficient insight has been obtained.

6. Closing time

When finished, the client discharges the representatives. With the hands on the shoulders, the client says: “thank you for representing …, now you are … again”. If someone had multiple roles, they would have to be discharged for every role.

Then everyone walks it off and sits down. The session finishes with a short round of closing statements.
