Identity Constellations Workshops

Dates and prices are outlined below.  To enquire about or book on a workshop please email Daren De Witt at:  identitytherapy[at]gmail.com.

Upcoming Workshop Dates:

These workshops take place approx once a month.  Currently scheduled dates are:

Date:   Sat 2nd & Sun 3rd April 2022.   Workshop type:  Identity Constellations.  Location:   Online using the Zoom platform.

NB. Daren is currently facilitating these workshops in an online format only, due to Covid-19.  He hopes at some point in 2022 to offer theses workshops in-person in both London and Hastings.  Daren has facilitated many constellations workshops online and they have all been very effective, despite participants being in their separate homes and connecting through the internet.  The ’empathic resonance’ typical of constellations sessions has been experienced by us all, and a deep level of trust and connection usually develops between participants.  If you would prefer to attend in a face to face format only, please let Daren know and he will contact you when he resumes face to face workshops.

Thank you for the workshop last weekend, Daren.  I found it incredibly powerful and healing.  Thank you for your calm and grounding presence.  I’ll definitely do another one.  – NC, March 2022

“On the workshop I found and brought back a piece of myself that has been buried for such a long time and that gives me tremendous joy and a renewed sense of inner strength.  I cannot thank you enough for such a precious gift.”  – Carlotta Z, March 2019

“Thank you Daren – I had an insightful and monumental experience in your workshop.”  – CN, June 2021

Identity Constellations (IoPT) Workshops Overview

We invite you to look at yourself from a different perspective; to explore your identity as it was formed through your early childhood experiences and traumas in your family.  Identity therapy constellations workshops will help you to gain an understanding of how your early life experiences are influencing you on a daily basis.

Step by step you will be able to:

* separate yourself from what others wanted you to be
* trust yourself
* make clear and positive choices
* honour your feelings as well as your body
* maintain healthy loving relationships
* become the person you want to be

Types of Places on each Constellations Workshop

There are two types of place on these workshops, which we call a working place and a participant place.
Working Place: If you book a working place, this will enable you to engage in a full self-encounter process or ‘constellation’.  In each process the person working will come up with an intention to explore an area in his or her life.  For example, “I want to be less anxious around other people.”  This ‘sentence of intention’ will provide the framework for that person’s process.  Other members of the group support the exploration by participating in the process and resonating with the different elements of that person’s intention.  If you have a working place you can also be available as a support person, or ’empathic resonator’ for others when they do their processes.  There is a maximum of 3 working places available on each workshop.  Each constellation last for approx 75-90 minutes.

NB.  Identity Constellations and NVC-focused Identity Constellations workshops are very similar.  The essential difference is that on NVC-focused Identity Constellations workshops we ask you to formulate your ‘sentence of intention’ around a need that you are struggling with in your life and want to understand more about in relation to your inner experience. Daren has created this slight adaptation of Identity Constellations workshops to align them with NVC (Nonviolent Communication), an empathy and conflict resolution process that Daren has been practising and sharing since the year 2000.

Participant Place:  If you book a participant place, you role will primarily be to support those with working places.  In addition, if you wish, there will be an opportunity for you to engage in a brief (10-15) self-encounter process where one other person will resonate with something that is alive in your inner experience.

Everyone in the group can benefit from the experience, learning something about themselves either through participating or observing.  There is a maximum of 3 participant places available on each workshop.

Price and Booking:

You can choose from two types of workshop place.  Both offer personal insights, learning and healing.

Working place – £90:  Guarantees you a personal constellation (self-encounter). You can also be available as a resonator for others when they do their personal constellations.

Participant place – £60:  Available as a resonator in the constellations of others. If you wish, there will also be an opportunity for you to experience someone resonating with you briefly, for 10-15 mins.

Working places are limited and fill up quickly.  If time allows it may be possible to upgrade from ma participant to a working place on the day.

Each workshop is self-contained, so you can attend one or attend regularly.

The workshop provides a safe environment in which to explore early life experiences.  These experiences can evoke strong feelings relating to early trauma.  Sometimes participants might feel the need for support between sessions to process these feelings.  If you don’t have access to support you are welcome to discuss this with me.

“I really love the identity constellations and they REALLY help me.  This time I have seen really instant results too, I have such a better understanding about myself and this week I have made some positive changes that feel like totally new territory, not going over the same old failed interventions but really getting to the heart of things.” – Phillipa G, Jan 2019
