A Constellation Day

with Ursula Bell

Ursula Maria Bell is an accredited counsellor and supervisor and an experienced family constellations facilitator.  Ursula works with people of different experience and nationality.  Her deep conviction is that, in order to see the wholeness of the person, counselling and psychotherapy need to embrace all aspects of the human 'being', including the transpersonal and transgenerational. In her work Ursula draws on two models, Viktor E. Frankl's 'Logotherapy and Existential Analysis' and the 'Systemic Family Constellation' model.  Ursula is based in Exeter and works throughout the UK and continues to run regular training and workshops in Malta where she was living for several years and is still very much in demand.
