Systemic Constellations

Systemic Constellations and Mindfulness Workshops with
Sheila McCarthy-Dodd

About the Work

Systemic Constellations offer a healing methodology that allows us to gain insight into ourselves and our current struggles through opening our minds and hearts to a bigger picture. By including our families, systems, and our ancestors using the constellation method, we have an opportunity to go deeper into who we are and to find new, more supportive movements in relation to our families and bigger systems. This approach can help to shift patterns and issues that we have been stuck with for a long time.

About Sheila McCarthy-Dodd

Sheila is a director and senior faculty member for the UK Centre for Systemic Constellations.  She has trained and worked extensively in Systemic and Family Constellations since 1996 and leads regular systemic constellation workshops. She has a well-established therapy and supervision practice in Gloucestershire for individuals, couples and supervision. She works extensively as a trainer including facilitating Relational Supervision training with Severn Talking Therapy.

Sheila is not currently taking on new clients.


There are different ways to participate in the workshops. As a witness, as a representative, and as an issue holder.

Through representing in and witnessing other people’s constellations we participate in our own personal work, as well as developing systemic insight and understanding.

Those who wish to explore an issue in their lives are invited to offer their issue to the constellator on the day. Their willingness to bring their own personal family issues enables the whole group to engage with their personal work and learning.


In person workshops

"Monday’s workshop was a revelation. Thank you. A gift. Words are inadequate but I’m smiling inside."

"Never have I worked with such a humble and skilful facilitator"

"Thank you so much for Saturday, it was such a great and inspiring day of constellations and you held it so well and with such knowledge. I received many gifts and insights, thank you."

"I’ve attended a few constellations in the past, but never have I witnessed such great holding and the gentle, yet persistent way you led each issue holder to some kind of resolution. So it was a very rich day and I came away with a few of my own insights."

Online workshops

"There was such a deep connection. Thank you for providing us with this level of depth and protection in an online environment."

"This was my first time attending a constellations workshop and I've been amazed by the power and the intimacy. Especially as the workshop was conducted online. Really stunning!"

"I attended the online workshop with Sheila yesterday and had a deep, enriching experience. I really appreciated her depth of skill, compassion, humour and space holding; I believe something very fundamental has shifted for me and I'm really grateful. It was a lovely, warm group too which gave me a very needed sense of community and safety."
