What is Family and Systemic Constellation?

Family and Systemic Constellations are gentle yet powerful techniques that reveal and disentangle our family ties. Constellations help us understand that we are influenced by any system that we belong to

Through Family and Systemic Constellations:

  • We will reveal behavior patterns in the family system that continue from generation to generation

  • We will understand the hidden dynamics in our family

  • We will get different perspective and a deeper understanding of our emotional and behavioral patterns

  • We will allow full acceptance of the facts that have occurred in the past, thus solving their harmful effects on our lives

  • We will bring healing, acceptance and completion to relationships in our lives

  • We will allow love that has been frozen to flow again and a very ancient sense of separateness to dissolve itself

  • We will feel connected again, to ourselves, to our loved ones, to life
    ***This method can also be used for study in organizations and teams

Is the training suitable for me and what will I get from it?

  • If you are a therapist, counselor, coach, or anyone intending to engage in working with people, you can use the constellation method in individual and group settings.
    The constellation method will enrich your professional toolbox by enabling you to uncover hidden dynamics in your client’s family system, in a way that is not possible with other treatment methods.
    Furthermore, constellation is a  fast way to detect and sometimes even repair unhealthy entanglements that may cause the client unnecessary suffering.

  • If you are a teacher, doctor, droula, midwife, mentor, etc., you will gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics inherent in your client’s various systems, which will enrich their capabilities and yours in a significant way.

  • You, for yourself, will understand more deeply the dynamics of your family of origin, your past, your country, your culture, etc., that have shaped you and influenced who you have become.
    You will accept and come to terms with your past and your origin, change destructive behavior patterns of and live your life in a free, natural, satisfying and happy present.

Doing the course with Sakino opened up many layers of precious information for me. Immediately I found the space exceptionally held and conducive to gentle release and transformation. Professionally it gave me many tools sourced in my lived experience. 
The grand mystery of life is embodied in the work.

Melanie Landau, Jerusalem

​I participated in Sakino's first course in Israel and then assisted in two more.
I am grateful for the transformation I have experienced in the way I perceive care, holding space and presence.
Sakino brings with her decades of experience working with people, a lot of heart, love, compassion and non-judgment. That's mostly what I learned. I met a completely magical and simple technique, with minimal effort. As someone who is used to working with a lot of emotional release, I was surprised at how simply it is possible to reach significant discoveries. I recommend everyone to experience this course, no matter what your final goal is.

The family constellation course
Heal Your Roots
It is an unforgettable experiential course.
Sakino is an excellent and experienced therapist, she distills and concentrates 40 years of experience in therapy and conveys them in a professional, interesting, inclusive and loving way.
I would define this course as "beyond the family constellation", apart from the background and theoretical information the course is experiential.
This is a mandatory course for every therapist, it is comprehensive and contains many tools for therapists.
The course is also recommended to any person who wants to learn and explore himself and his family background to understand the things that are bothering him in life and undergo healing in the process.
I participated in the first cycle of the course which was very powerful for me, so I continued for two more cycles as an assistant.
Sakino is very inclusive and attentive to all participants in the course.
Gil Ben Hazan, Holon

Among all the things that came to my door in the year of Corona, there was the opportunity to deepen my knowledge and experience in 'Family Constellation'. I discovered Sakino Matilda Sternberg, a psychologist from Berlin, a constellation facilitator, and above all a sensitive, smart and unusual personality in the world.
I went with her and with many other good people on a journey into the mind, the body, the awareness, the personal story, the trauma, and above all a journey to healing and recovery.
With the constellation technique we can observe the breadth and depth of the situation, discover new perspectives on our story, receive hidden information and begin to change the old patterns.
For me this meeting is life changing. I'm still walking the path and already closer to myself than ever. The way I look at the world and the people around me got a new perspective. My body started talking to me, meaning I started listening to it, and also to my heart.
Sakino has a wonderful ability to hold the space in the group, with deep listening and an open heart. She leads the participants with in-depth knowledge and rich experience, a precise combination of professionalism and ethics with humanity, empathy and love.

Sharon Eini, Lahavot Habashan

I signed up for the course on the spur of the moment.

I came from a very skeptical place, but I was curious to experience what it was about, how to feel the energy. I soon noticed the changes taking place within my family and in the relationships between the people.
The course made me want to delve deeper into my family lineage, understand patterns and behaviors that pass within the family, accept them, be compassionate and bring a lot of healing to the painful places and develop from there.
Sakino is a highly experienced and highly professional facilitator, brings with her diverse knowledge and tools and does everything quietly, listening, inclusively and patiently.
A character who is an inspiration.
Highly recommend the course.
Anat Parbin, Hod Hasharon

I was very happy for the opportunity to meet and discover Sakino,
A very special teacher who helped me personally a lot and also to other friends and members of the group.
An excellent combination of knowledge, experience, and a big heart.
highly recommend.
