Family Constellations

My name is Heike McCahon and I offer fully qualified, holistic, affordable and effective counselling and Family Constellation work to individuals, couples and families in a peaceful setting.

Business Description

In my work I aim at balancing body, heart and mind, using Vedic spiritual principles, ritual work and a wide range of therapeutic and meditative modalities. These include Client Centred Counselling, Gestalt Therapy, Systemic Family Constellations Work, Non Violent Communication and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Having taught in tertiary education in Christchurch for more than 15 years, I enjoy teaching my clients new skills, like non-violent communication skills, relaxation and meditation skills or skills to cope with anger, depression, anxiety, trauma or stress of any sort.

As well as face-to-face counselling, I have recently started counselling using phone and skype. I have found this to be a valuable tool and effective method of working with clients situated outside the Christchurch area.

Family Constellation Workshops

Bert Hellinger, a German psychotherapist, developed Family Constellation work out of a mixture of systems therapy, family therapy, primal therapy, psychotherapy, group therapy, and phenomenology. It has been widely used in Europe since the early 1980s and is now gaining widespread recognition all over the world.

What issues does Family Constellations deal with?

All issues regarding families and relationships, such as blended families, early death of a parent, adoptions, miscarriages or abortions etc. can be dealt with very successfully using this approach. Other issues may include trauma, addictions, depression, grief or illness, immigration, failing relationships or anxiety.

What are the benefits?

• Constellation work is simple, effective and profound.
• Other family members do not need to be there.
• The need for self disclosure is minimal.
• One can benefit just by observing other people’s constellations.

Who is the workshop for?

The workshop is aimed at people who want to learn more about their families, relationships and themselves and bring healing and clarity to their system. It helps participants to discover how love can flow in relationships and to reweave their life’s tapestry so harmony and order can be restored.
