Coaching Constellations Germany

Introductory workshops and trainings in Berlin

Coaching Constellations has been offering coaches and organisational consultants a learning journey in systemic coaching with constellations since 2009. The combination of a systemic perspective and the very practical methodology of constellations – a physical map of relationship system dynamics – offers a profound way of understanding human systems. By working at the source of limiting dynamics and repeating patterns, fresh perspectives and opportunities for action emerge that lead to sustainable change in individuals, teams and whole organisations.  

The Berlin workshops and trainings are delivered in English and designed for coaches, facilitators and organisational consultants who wish to integrate and apply a systemic perspective in their work. Please scroll down for more information and dates.

Maren was born in Heidelberg and is fluent in English, German and Italian. She lived and worked in the UK and Switzerland for over 20 years before returning to Germany and settling in Berlin. She holds an MSc in Organisational Psychology from the London School of Economics and trained deeply in organisational constellations and systemic coaching. Maren works as a coach, systemic facilitator and coach supervisor face-to-face and virtually with individuals and groups.

More information about trainings and workshops in Berlin

Introductory Constellations Workshops

  • Informal introduction to the principles and applications of coaching constellations as used in one-to-one and team coaching.
  • These introductory workshops are open to coaches, consultants, HR leaders and trainers with an interest in applying a systemic perspective to their work.

  • Previous experience not required, just a desire to deepen or refresh your understanding of systemic work.

Training in Systemic Coaching & Constellations

  • ‘Fundamentals’ Part I (two days) – a substantial and applicable introduction to the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching and organisational constellations and their application in one-to-one and team settings.

  • ‘Fundamentals’ Part II (three days) – deepens and widens your understanding and practice of the approach; goes into the multiple applications with individuals, teams, groups and whole organisations.

Please note that this is not a training in coaching, but a journey into systemic coaching with constellations for those already practising as a coach or in a similar professional role.

The Book

The book ‘Systemic Coaching and Constellations’  was published in its 2nd Edition in 2016. It offers a practical introduction to the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching and constellations. Next to theoretical input, it is also a rich resource of exercises and practical examples of how this methodology can be applied to individuals, groups, teams and whole organisations.

Participants of the workshops and trainings – whether new to this methodology or already experienced – are invited to read the book to enhance their learning and experiment with applying it.

Coaching Constellations, Berlin

Coaching Constellations was established in the UK by John Whittington with the purpose of sharing the many benefits of the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching and constellations. He began to offer workshops and trainings in London from 2009. Executive coaches interested in a systemic perspective and methodology soon grew in numbers and it wasn’t long before John was invited to teach and facilitate across Europe.

Maren Donata Urschel, who leads our Berlin workshops and trainings, first met John in 2011 when he was teaching in Italy and subsequently trained to Practitioner level with him and Coaching Constellations. A little later he invited her to join the teaching team and contribute to his book ‘Systemic Coaching and Constellations.’ Maren became part of the teaching team in 2016, training others in the fundamentals of this approach in London.

When Maren and her young family moved to Berlin in early 2018, the idea to offer introductory workshops and trainings in Germany emerged naturally. Maren works with deep respect and thanks to the rich history that systemic coaching and constellations have in Germany, where this applied philosophy originates.
