John Whittington

John Whittington, founder of Coaching Constellations and author of ‘Systemic Coaching & Constellations‘, was first invited, by Piret, to teach the Fundamentals programme in Estonia in 2017. Sigrid was in that first training group and both have continued to learn with Coaching Constellations. John has returned several times to facilitate Fundamentals Part I and II. in 2022 John invited Piret and Sigrid to join the international teaching team so as to continue sharing this systemic approach to coaching in Estonia and across the region. John now supports their work in teaching the Fundamentals Part I and co-facilitates Part II with them.

John is an experienced systemically-oriented coach and constellations facilitator. He works with coaches, leaders and teams in multiple contexts and offers a safe and respectful space in which people can learn and develop as human beings.

His understanding of the dynamics that sustain and limit life, relationships and organisational systems offers a wealth of wisdom that’s expressed through his facilitation of constellations, teaching and writing. Together with a deep commitment to his own continuous personal and professional development this ensures a deep learning for all.

The Book

In response to the interest in ‘Systemic Coaching and Constellations’  when it was first  published in 2012 it was updated and published in 2nd Edition in 2016. In June 2020 the expanded 3rd edition was published and offers a comprehensive and yet very practical introduction to the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching and constellations. It is a rich resource of exercises and practical examples of how this methodology can be applied to individuals, groups and teams. 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 John Whittington, was originally invited to teach in Estonia by Piret in 2017. Over the several trainings in Estonia since,  John became Piret and Sigrid’s principle teacher in this work and now supports them in their teaching and facilitation of constellations.
