Systemic Structural constellations

Systemic Structural Constellations (SySt®) are an effective method to initiate lasting changes. They help us reach greater clarity regarding decisions or personal relationships, experience unknown personal strengths, establish and maintain healthy boundaries towards others, leave behind unpleasant past experiences and try new ways of thinking, feeling or acting. Frequent concerns are professional difficulties, conflicts in personal relationships, decision making, chronic physical symptoms, personal blockages, fears or recurrent behavioural patterns.

In the constellation, the situation experienced as problematic by the client is made externally visible, that way allowing a new and more distanced view and facilitating inner changes regarding new ways of thinking, feeling or acting. On some occasions it may be necessary to go through an inner process slowly and deliberately, whereas on other occasions new options and sudden solutions may emerge once inner blockages, entaglements or confusions are removed. Finally, the solution is anchored in order to facilitate the transfer into everyday life. Solutions always arise individually from the inner process a person goes through during the constellation. All steps towards a solution are taken in agreement with the client and in accordance with the individual concern.

Systemic Structural Constellations are well suitable for one-on-one counselling, especially for topics where more discretion is preferred by the client. Instead of real persons, paper anchors on the floor are used. That way, the client him- or herself is able to explore the different positions of the relevant elements in the system and thus gain new insights about their dynamics. This format ist often experienced as more effective compared to constellations with human representatives, as the client him- or herself goes through the process towards the solution from the beginning. 

As part of a personal coaching, Structural Constellations can also be deduced from income tax.
