Family Constellation Therapy is a therapeutic approach designed to help individuals heal from the invisible effects of family dynamics and ancestral influences. Developed by Bert Hellinger, this method focuses on uncovering and resolving deep-seated issues within the family system.

Orders of Love

Central to Family Constellation Therapy are the “Orders of Love.” These principles ensure harmony and balance within the family system:

  1. Right to Belong: Every family member, regardless of their actions or circumstances, has an inherent right to belong. Exclusion of any member can lead to imbalance and unresolved issues within the family.
  2. Right to Safety: Ensuring that each family member feels safe and protected is crucial. Emotional and physical safety allows individuals to thrive and maintain healthy relationships.
  3. Balance of Giving and Taking: There should be a balance between giving and receiving within the family. Imbalances can lead to resentment and feelings of indebtedness.
  4. Order of Hierarchy: Recognizing the natural order of family members, such as parents before children, is essential. Disruptions in this order can cause confusion and dysfunction.
