“I love life and its endless opportunities”
When I (born in 1966 in Germany) was a young person, I lacked emotional guidance, closeness and acceptance. I created a lot of chaos, and as a result lost custody for and contact with my first-born child, which was by far the worst nightmare of my life. Through self-development I created positive change and started taking responsibility for my thinking and my actions. My attitude changed, I decided I wasn’t going to be a victim anymore. Eventually I created great relationships with my family, friends, children, partners and today I stand in my power and create the life I deserve. I keep finding my growth edges and step into the unknown in order to become even more the person I am meant to be. Mindfulness, Awareness, Family Constellations and creative body work have been the most powerful tools for my own change. These are the tools I am using in my change facilitation and life coaching.
I support you in getting you where you want to be by offering you my wisdom and expertise and my open mind and heart. My professional experience includes Coaching, Counselling, Systemic Therapy, Mindfulness and the facilitation of Systemic- (Systems-) – or also known as – Family Constellations. I did most of my training with Klaus Frey from Neue Wege Seminare in Germany between 1995 and 2015. I’ve been offering my work since 2005. My focus is on creating positive relationships with family, life partners, friends, colleagues and superiors, and I also specialise in parenting and health issues.
I’m an active member of OTS-Oxford Therapy Centre; and of ISCA (International Systemic Constellations Association); and I keep training with teachers like Michael Soth (embodied 2-person psychotherapy); Robert Downes; Stephan Hausner (Systemic work on Illness & Health), Cecilio Fernandez Regojo (Organisational Constellations), Anngwyn St. Just (Systemic expertise in Trauma), Marianne Franke-Gricksch (Systemic Expert in Education & Families) and others. I participate in peers’ workshops and invite other constellators to mine.
My approach is solution-focused, embodied, mindful, respectful, non-judgemental. Creating a safe space for my clients to grow is of utmost importance to me.
You will feel listened to and receive constructive feedback as well as helpful questions and tools to enable you to take the right decisions for your life. I will support you in addressing and letting go of past trauma, gaining self-confidence, becoming happier and creating the relationships you’re longing for.
“Silvia is an authentic, wise, and open hearted guide who has trodden the path to healing herself, and has all the skills and sensitivity needed to help others on their journey to a happier future, however difficult it may be to face the baggage carried from the past. We co-created a powerful and good energy, and Silvia held the space so well.” (Fiona – Workshop Participant)
“Silvia is great at fostering an inviting and open environment, where you not only feel at home but you feel supported, understood and respected by all group members. She offers really varied useful activities, which offer good balance and scope and is flexible each week to change from plan if she feels something else would be more helpful. Her place is the perfect retreat. Thank you Silvia, love the sessions :-)” (Sarah Maynard – Participant)

“Just wanted to say that I attended my first Systemic Constellations day run by Silvia last Saturday and have some thoughts which prospective clients might find useful – If you are looking for an open, direct yet heart-centred coach to help you move through any stuck places in your life/your relationships, I suggest you work with Silvia. She created a safe, supported environment for the group but also ensured that we got important inner work done!” (Jenny Chambers – Participant)
