Feeback from Previous Students

“The training in Family Constellations with Maria has been a fabulous experience for me, both personally and professionally. Maria through her constellation work, created a safe ‘space’ that opened the possibility for me to experience ‘self’, ‘other’ and my ‘family system’ in a way that has spoken to my soul. I have experienced change that I cannot intellectually describe, but is a ‘knowing’ within my body. And, (as if that was not enough!) Maria’s guidance, knowledge, expertise, ease, acceptance and warmth has guided me to now have the confidence and courage to create this type of space, also, for my clients.”
Jo Quilter

“I have been a student of Maria Dolenc for the past year. Maria’s passion is infectious. Her wisdom and love invokes wisdom and love from each of her students.
I have learnt so much about myself and I have discovered my ancestors. Before learning about Constellation work I never gave my ancestors a single thought, now I feel their presence and support in my everyday living.
If you have a passion for personal growth then system constellation work will bring understanding for yourself and others.”
Vivienne McLaren Fettell
