Systemic Family Solutions - Bert Hellinger Family Constellation Work

About Bert Hellinger

"Bert Hellinger is considered by many to be Europe's most innovative and provocative psychotherapist. Described as the ultimate empiricist, Hellinger acknowledges several important influences on his life and work: his parents, whose faith immunized him against accepting Hitler's National Socialism; his 20 years as a priest, particularly as a missionary to the Zulu; and his participation in interracial, ecumenical training in group dynamics led by Anglican clergy.

"After leaving the priesthood, he studied psychoanalysis, and eventually developed an interest in Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis. It was in Hellinger's later training in family therapy that he first encountered the family constellations that have become the hallmark of his therapeutic work--an approach to which he has added new levels of meaning and possibility.

"Hellinger, who lives in Germany, is an immensely popular figure in Europe. His best-selling books and videos, as well as his workshops, have generated a spirited dialogue among members of the international therapy community and have propelled him to the forefront of contemporary family therapy."   - From Love's Hidden Symmetry (For more about Bert's professional development, please see )

Since the start, Bert Hellinger has been engaged in an unceasing inquiry. For information on his newest work "Moving with the Spirit-Mind" please go to
