My Journey to Systemic Practitioner
For the past seven years I have situated my work in family and community well-being. A period of training in mental health and public nursing between 2011-15 reinforced my interest in transgenerational work. I am a qualified mental health professional and have completed systemic constellations training at Advanced level and continue to learn from other senior practitioners in the field, including Judith Hemmings, Albrecht Marr, Stephan Hausner, Daan van Kampenhout and Tanja Meyburgh.
My Ancestral Constellations Approach
I facilitate family constellations workshops, social justice systemic forums, community well-being groups and mediation sessions for families in conflict. I specialise in working across differences and integrating diverse ways of thinking about multiple identities in society. Workshops draw on both Western systemic theory and African indigenous ‘ways of knowing’ to create an individual constellations approach that attracts people from the helping professions, therapists, artists, holistic health practitioners and other creatives.
Prior Learning and Credentials
Prior to my systemic practice I spent over twenty years in a variety of roles, consultant, group facilitator, mediator and professional coach. Working primarily in Local Government, voluntary sector and the NHS, I developed teams and work groups using a range of learning methods and creative approaches. These included graphic drawing, conflict constellations, diversity dialogue circles and systemic solution focused workshops.
