Virtual/Remote sessions available for one-to-one and horse guided sessions
"Today was my first virtual constellation session with Shivaun and the herd. While my previous experiences in person have been powerful and effective, I was surprised at the connection I immediately felt with the horses today. Despite initial resistance, I found myself pulled right into the herd energy, as if blending with it. Very quickly we touched on the issue that I was grappling with. The horses are so willing to serve and there is so much love and healing in that. I emerged from the session more balanced, grounded and resourced to face the challenges ahead. Thank you Shivaun and the herd for offering me such a beautiful experience, from the comfort of my home."

Systemic Constellation Counselling/Coaching
What is systemic constellation?
It’s a therapeutic model developed by German philosopher and psychotherapist Bert Hellinger. It departs from mainstream therapies in that it recognises that individuals are part of ‘systems’ – within a family, at the workplace, or even cultural and tribal contexts. Furthermore, systemic constellation acknowledges ancestral legacies --loyalties and resources at the soul level.
Often, the source of our challenges are not confined to our individual problems or circumstances alone, but are systemic and relational in nature, and sometimes, even inter-generational or historical. We are not always conscious of the gifts or challenges we carry from our ancestral line, and giving back what is not ours can free us, while gaining insight into the gifts bestowed upon us can help us embrace and manifest in powerful ways.
During a session, you will be guided to create a 'living map' of aspects or elements of the issue you are facing. This facilitated exploration brings to light the hidden dynamics, underlying entanglements and perhaps even unconscious ancestral legacies which lie at the root of the issue. This is an embodied and experience-based process which allows us to tap into the 'knowing field' and our own body's knowing. We can transcend the narratives that may bind us to reveal deeper truths and opportunities for healing, insight and direction.
