Constellations in Service of Parenting, Children's Learning & Behavioural Issues
Dissolving Barriers to Learning - Helping resolve Parenting and children’s learning & behavioural issues. A Day Workshop 10am to 6pm. West Hampstead London NW6. Dear Constellations Explorers, Many children, despite their best efforts, find it difficult to engage with learning. Sometimes this affects their behaviour or their desire to go to school; always it affects their attainment. The impact on the children, parents and schools is often considerable. Dissolving Barriers to Learning is a resource for schools and parents who need to create new strategies for children or older pupils experiencing difficulties. This one-day workshop offers a systemic approach in which the significant influences surrounding the child are identified and a clear, concise map of these factors in relation to the child is built up. When seen in this context, the difficulties of the child become more visible and understandable. New insights emerge, allowing unforeseen solutions to become possible which enable those surrounding the child to develop fresh strategies for moving forward. Benefits: - A new shared picture of the fuller situation emerges. - This enables the development of new strategies for progress. Parents, head teachers, teachers, support staff and other professionals may bring an issue on behalf of a child. The child does not usually attend, although older pupils (16+) may sometimes attend in person. Parents and school may come together. Other participants may attend who wish to experience or learn from the approach. Facilitators: The workshop is facilitated by Jane James who has taught in early years, secondary and teacher training settings and is a systemic practitioner and coach and Illi Adato founder and head facilitator at the Acknowledging What Is Institute, an experienced and innovative practitioner and teacher of systemic & family constellations.

What we're about

What Are Constellations ?

The Constellations method offers a unique and deep process of therapeutic exploration of the forces that move us in life and as such can be reflected through difficulties in relationships, career, health matters or even financial circumstances. This method provides a three-dimensional, Systemic picture or ‘map’ of one’s life as it is at present.
It is a simple yet powerful way to explore entanglements and blockages in one’s life and in one’s family history. The method brings awareness and clarity into personal challenges by focusing the client on the root cause of such difficulties. Constellations provide an opening for a positive life shift and presents ways for deep healing processes to occur.

What happens in a Constellations sessions ?
In Constellations work a ‘client’ is referred to as the ‘issue holder’. The method uses workshop participants as ‘representatives’ to stand-in for key people in the client’s life such as family members, colleagues, partners, ex partners etc. sometimes ‘abstract’ concepts such as an emotion, country of origin, religion or ‘destiny’ are also represented.

Each workshop will offer 3-4 Issue Holders a chance to work while all other participants are invited to take part as Representatives. Workshop participants often report experiencing profound insights into their own lives by simply witnessing the process, regardless of how they choose to take part, Representing or simply witnessing.

Participants Comments from Previous Constellations Workshops

“Illi is a skilled facilitator with a true passion for his work. He is truly interested in helping people to flourish, and discover new sides of themselves! His group work and meditations are often simple, but profound. Illi is a gem for those who are on the path to greater self-awareness and personal development.”

— Geeta

“ I attended my first Healing, Roots, Wings Workshop with London Family Constellations. This work is transformational and Illi leads the group with a supportive balance of warmth, clarity and professionalism. This is a unique space to connect with all aspects of humanity free from judgement. It's a place to reconnect inner spaces fragmented through family events or ancestral trauma. Thanks Illi for your skill and care. I heartily recommend this group to anyone open to change. ”

— Imogen (

“ London Family Constellations has been a profound experience for me. This work is very effective and deeply impacting in a life changing way. I am infinitely grateful and I look forward to discovering more. Absolutely amazing. Illi Adato is a genius in the art of healing and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. ”

— Bryan Onesiphorus Freeman (

That is my 3rd Constellation with Illi and I am ever so grateful I have meet this group. I have been knowing/doing Constellation for about 3 years now. However, I find that Illi's experience and kindness is very different from what I have experienced before. I finally feel free to move on with my life guilty-free of all the heavy burden I was carrying on my entire being.

I want also to thank all the participants for the caring support ..

- Lilian (

“ A great healing modality - safe, supportive and relaxed. ”

- Claire (

“ I have attended 2 of Illi's events. The work works! The results are plain to see and the 'Issue holders' gain clarity and from I can see: peace. Illi leads his sessions in a calm, compassionate and uncomplicated way through a gentle questioning process and use by the participants and their representatives of the space in the room to elicit information and awareness, leading often to the missing elements of their stories. Extraordinary, productive and loving! ”

Illi is an excellent guide and as a first timer I can see both short and semi-long term benefits of my personal self-reflection triggered by participating in the constellation.

Both within my professional and personal environment I was immediately able to see myself practising certain behaviours that needs changing and never interested me before. The family constellations is A real tool to discover things about and within yourself and above all to look at them from a more ''external'' perspective.

Thanks very much Illi !

- Sofia Sagripanti (

Simply great! Illi excellent at understanding situations

- Darcy Cayre (

Well I must say I didn't really know what to expect as a first timer to Constellations. It was definately an eye opening and thought provoking experience. It was not only a real insight into the human psyche but it was way more powerful and moving than I thought it would ever be. A very interesting concept that needs to be experienced first hand as it is not really possible to explain via words alone. Highly recommended!

- Nick O D (

Great session today, thank you Illi and all. A journey of depth in a short space of time. I've come away feeling more fully alive and myself.

- Naomi Zara (

Again I found it so transformative, with so many insights, sharings, and amazing beautiful support from such a great group of people. Illi has a wealth of experience, wisdom and empathy and facilitates so gently and subtly. Profound!

- Claire (

“ Thought provoking. Challenging but worthwhile. ”

- Ting (

“ Absolutely fabulous experience . Cannot put it into words but if there is something that keeps coming up for you go to one of these workshops and sort it out Thank you to Illi and everyone involved in today's workshop I have learned so much ”

- Fiona Kennedy

A liberating experience. Powerful, expressive and beautiful to see so much growth and love shared by people who have never met before. I still have no idea how to explain how the experience of someone else's pain is possible, how we are able to connect instantly with something that we know so little about, how we are able to release a deep feeling on an unconscious level that does not even belong to us directly.

It is an undeniable truth that we are all connected through our consciousness
The constellation experiences shared between people generates a deeper understanding of ourselves and our universal consciousness becomes clearer.

Amazing!!! Magnificent. Thank you x
