NOTE: As a result of the level of interest, John will facilitate this training again in the same week.  The alternative date for the same training is on the 23rd & 24th and all details are here.

Mapping the Field

This engaging training is designed to introduce the systemic coaching and constellations methodology as applied in coaching individuals, groups and teams. It will benefit those who would like to better understand the hidden organising forces that sustain relationship systems and who would like to integrate a practical methodology for softening limiting dynamics. You may be a very experienced coach or more recently started on your journey.

What will be included?

In a very practical way the group will explore the stance, principles and practices of this ‘applied philosophy’ through the application of mapping and constellations in executive, leadership and team coaching. Highlights of the experiential training include:

  • A thorough introduction to the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching with visual mapping and constellations
  • The practical application of mapping and constellations in one-to-one coaching that you can use straight away
  • An introduction to working with teams using this applied philosophy
  • An understanding of your own systemic resources and loyalties and how they may inform and support your coaching


Participants are invited to read at least the first four chapters of the 3rd edition of  ‘Systemic Coaching & Constellations’ before attending. This will greatly enhance your learning and ability to apply it in your professional practice.
