Impartiality, neutrality, sense of responsibility, awareness, recognition and modesty are expressions that describe the professional disposition of a constellation facilitator.

The decisive factor here is that these values actually characterise the concrete procedures and manner in which the constellation facilitator works. The consultant should see him/herself as a "host" of the constellation process (expression - M. Varga von Kibéd) and should create a stable environment for this. Only in this way is it possible to guarantee the unfolding of implicit knowledge.

This professional disposition becomes clear during the following practices:

  • Clarification of task and context during a systemic interview
  • Focusing on helpful and beneficial solutions before, during and after the constellation process
  • Transparency of the working hypotheses
  • Respecting agreed boundaries
  • Working syntactically and as far as possible, with minimal interpretation
  • Extensive follow-up discussions after each constellation


Competent work with System Constellations also takes into account further aspects:

  • The solutions are the result of the client ('systems') (own) efforts; they develop from the inside outwards. They are not "implemented" via "interventions" from a knowledgeable consultant
  • System Constellations are to be viewed as a dialogical group performance; with the repertoire in her/his "toolbox", the consultant merely contributes helpful recommendations
  • The consultant is also available for questions and follow-up work
  • Confidentiality is taken as understood
  • The constellation facilitator works significantly on themselves with regular further training, supervision, intervision and self-reflection
