Originally trained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist, Barbara has been working with constellations since 1997. 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 has a firm belief in personal development as the prime aspect of any training. At the same time she thinks it is important that any facilitator be familiar with the history, the underlying philosophical and theoretical stance of the work, the variety of different approaches and the experience of being a representative in constellations.
Her role as Editor since 2004 of the international constellations journal, The Knowing Field has given her access to the latest developments in the work worldwide. She is Author of Coming Home: a First Step into the world of Family Constellations (recently re-published) and Reflections on Motherhood Vols. 1 – 3 (vol. I recently published). In addition to the training here in the UK, Barbara is offering advanced trainings both locally and in Romania and workshops in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Lithuania. She also runs an annual 5-day intensive constellation camp locally and is part of a similar camp in Ireland. She provides individual constellations and supervision via Skype and in person in Bath.
Roisin came to family constellations via the Earthsong Camps in Ireland and from the very first day experiencing this work she was compelled to embark on a systemic journey that involved training with Barbara and continuing in the role of apprentice for the subsequent training. Joining this next training as Assistant Trainer to Barbara for the second time is a great move forward and an important next step.
Roisin facilitates workshops in many parts of Ireland, works with clients one to one, and is one of the founding members of Constellations Camp Ireland. She lives in Dublin with her four young adult children, some dogs and hens, who all participate in her ongoing learning process.
Dr. Ty Francis is an organisational consultant and coach who works internationally with global corporations integrating constellations within his consulting practice as well as holding open workshops and training programmes. Ty is particularly interested in working with people at the interface of organisational and personal development issues. He co-organised the UK’s first international constellations conference in 2005 and has published several articles on organisational constellations in international journals. He is also part of the guest faculty at Henley Business School.
Born in 1963, Stephan has been working since 1988 as a healer in private practice with a focus on homeopathy, medical dowsing, osteopathy and kinesiology.
