About the Event

Systemic Mapping and Systemic Constellations are powerful transformational tools used to illuminate problematic issues and previously unseen dynamics in a whole new way for coaches and their clients. Participants will experience facilitating a number of different systemic exercises which will be learned on this intensive 12 hour training course which takes place in stages over a 4-week period with the Systemic Coach Academy of New Zealand. 

This extraordinary way of working allows us to access the clients ‘felt sense’ of issues and relationships. It is particularly useful when clients or team members are “going round and round in their heads” trying to resolve problems or disentangle themselves from the past patterns of systems they belong to and are influenced by.

This work is firmly rooted in the principle of respect for every client’s ability to explore and resolve their own issues. The coach or facilitator acts not as an advisor or expert during this type of intervention, but as a resource for safely and creatively processing and exploring issues, as well as facilitating structured reflection and gaining new insights. 

The Explorer Course includes discussion, course resources and practice around the following:

  • Systems thinking and systemic principles
  • Somatic awareness and bodywork
  • Outlining the ‘stance & principles’ for the effective systemic coach or facilitator
  • Discovering through doing the power of the methodology of constellations
  • Discovering and working with representative objects 
  • The importance and relevance of boundaries, orientation and distance in constellations
  • Reading maps and exploring alternative perspectives or ‘lenses’
  • Mining for fresh information and revelations
  • Identifying systemic issues and selecting appropriate exercises
  • Table-top constellation instruction and practice
  • Reflections and opportunities for further learning

12 hours of ICF Approved CCE's pending. 

This course takes place in distinct blocks over a 4-week period, this allows for a manageable amount of screen time, practice time and reflective time, and also allows live access from a number of time zones. 

The learning style is interactive and practical, and is specifically designed to enhance positive learning experience online. With the current context in mind, and recognising the predominance of online coaching, all techniques will be taught as virtual tools with exploration of how to ensure they are also highly impactful in a face to face setting.
