Professional or Self Development Training Course

10th Training Course in Family Constellation
Throughout the Training Course, my invitation is to shine a light on and put in order our existence, to be with reality, to take our rightful place and to give everyone their rightful place, all in a way that is beneficial for all, in order to embrace a wider happiness.

The Family Constellation Training Course is for those who wish to grow and live in more harmony, enrich their personal and professional life or practice Family Constellations. It gives everyone good foundations.

The Training course invites us to live and experience in a concrete way what   Family Constellations are and what they bring us. Everyone is thus invited to participate actively in multiple constellations, as observer, representative and client.


Each Constellation is enriched with a valuable teaching based on Bert Hellinger's work, Michaël Katzeff's experience, and each participant's personal experience.


Through different exercises and situational scenarios, everyone is invited to develop their perceptions, to broaden their knowledge and beliefs and to embrace a nourishing practice of the Family Constellations.


The basis of this Training Course is above all a deep work of self development. This work can be done over one or two years, depending on one' s impulse.


Each year, Michaël Katzeff enrich the Family Constellation Training Course and offer a lively teaching in adequacy with the reality of the moment. Each year, new participants also bring new themes that are specific to them and that also enrich the Training Courses.

For those who wish to take a serious additional step to become the actors of their personal and professional existence or for those who wish to become professionals in Family Constellation, a third year, dedicated to Conscious Practice in Family Constellations®, enriches these first two years of the Training Course and can lead to a Certification.

Throughout the Training Course we will integrate the wisdom of Family Constellations into our lives.

In Belgium and Switzerland, during the Training, your constellations can be done in English, the rest of the seminars are given in French.


To participate in the Family Constellation Training Course, a prior participation in a Family Constellation weekend with Michael Katzeff is recommended.

Testimonials :

The other day a friend asked me how my Family Constellation training course was, I answered him : "It is revealing to see without the prism of my mind". Navigating the Family Constellation landscape is a disturbing experience. Like Alice in Wonderland, I feel like I'm passing through the mirror. In this world where the noise of judgments is silenced to give way to the essential. The invisible becomes visible.

Thank you for your light! You wake people up who sleep in their reoccurring dreams...


I really love the way in which your benevolent and uncompromising work makes it possible to feed the best part of each one, while handing over to each one, and with a profound accuracy, the reins of his life in his own hands. For me, it is really the basis of counselling pedagogy ! I am happy to be committed to this deeply training work. Thank you.


I am full of gratitude to have met you, for me what you offer is obvious on my path today. I also allow myself to not always agree with you and it is comfortable to respect myself in these spaces as well. I also feel free to be who I am in this training course and I thank you for accepting that, for me and for the others, it is fundamental. Free to be sometimes the one who moves forward, who journeys and who opens new possibilities but free to be also sometimes static, not very courageous and closed.
Actually... I don't really care about the Constellations. If you had offered a macramé training course, I would surely have enjoyed learning how to make complicated knots from you as well. Always with this independence of spirit that drives me and is precious to me.

With all my friendship and trust.


I wish to have more information

thank you for being precise in your request
