Maren Donata Urschel

Maren, who was born in Heidelberg, 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.

Maren contributed to the book ‘Systemic Coaching and Constellations‘ and facilitates Coaching Constellations’ trainings in Berlin and London throughout the year. She offers systemic supervision to students of Coaching Constellations trainings.

In her spare time Maren plays the violin in symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles.

Training in Systemic Coaching and Constellations in Berlin 

From 2020 Maren and John Whittington, who founded Coaching Constellations will offer our ‘Fundamentals’ training in systemic coaching and constellations in Berlin, in English. This English training is offered with deep respect and thanks to the rich history that systemic constellations have in Germany, where this applied philosophy originates. 

The training will be delivered in the same, well-established format as in the UK, France and Romania, starting with the two-day ‘Fundamentals Part I’ on May 7th & 8th 2020 and then a separate three-day module, ‘Fundamentals Part II’ on September 24th, 25th & 26th 2020. Both parts will be co-facilitated by Maren and John. 

The training is open to coaches, consultants, HR leaders and trainers with an interest in applying a systemic perspective in their work. ‘Fundamentals Part I’ introduces participants to how system-level dynamics play out in organisations, to applying constellations in a one-on-one setting and to working systemically with teams. ‘Fundamentals Part II’ deepens and widens participants’ understanding and application of the approach in multiple settings. 

To experience the methodology in action prior to attending a training, Maren offers regular Constellations experience workshops in Berlin.

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.

Author and coach John Whittington, who will co-facilitate the trainings with Maren in 2020.

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 facilitation 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. This site and the workshops and trainings it offers are the result. Welcome!
