“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way“- Tolstoy
Family ecology explores the family narratives and stories that bind and shape us and empowers us to rewrite those stories into something new.
The process takes the form of collaborative enquiry- part detective work, part counselling, part narrative and ritual- in which we investigate the patterns and histories in your family story, how these have been passed down through the generations and how they may have resulted in emotional wounds, illness and trauma for yourself or your ancestors.
Together we work together to rewrite these scripts, heal individual and ancestral wounds and create a new story that liberates rather than constrains. We develop rituals and totems for healing and make allies of our ancestors, drawing upon the wisdom of our genetic inheritance.
