I am facilitating International groups and trainings in Family and Systemic Constellations and Trauma Healing, called

‘Heal your Roots’

All groups and trainings are currently held online (in English) 



“Heal your Roots”


10 evenings

Sharing, Family and Systemic Constellations, Meditation, Trauma Healing structures

Next course: 27. August 2024 – 29. October 2024

During challenging times we might get triggered, old traumas and unresolved issues from the past may pop up in unexpected ways and disturb and even shatter us. I created this course so that people have a place to share and be listened to, without being judged or given uninvited feedback or advice. In every session, after an initial meditation and sharing, I will work with one participant on a specific issue. This could be done as a constellation or a body focused trauma work, depending on the issue. Whether you work on your own issue or you are taking a role in someone’s constellation, or you are ‘just’ an observing participant, in any case you will benefit for your own life, by being in a healing field together, gaining a deeper understanding of the universality of human nature and suffering, identifying with themes of others, learning together and supporting each other. Participants have shared in past courses that this group is the only place for them to open up about their deepest issues.

You will learn:

  • How old patterns from our family of origin still influence us deeply.
  • How you can resolve them and live more fulfilled and free.
  • What supports you in your healing process.
  • How you can let go of destructive habits .
  • How you can create strong resources and use them.
  • How to understand yourself and others better.
  • Healing rituals, meditations, small structures to support you in your daily life

Meeting times:

Every Tuesday 9 – 11am California time, 18 – 20pm CET, 19 – 20pm Israel time

10 sessions of 2 hours.

What you will gain:

Deeper understanding of family and systemic constellation work, basic understanding of trauma, easy to apply tools for daily life.

Who is this course for:

Everyone. Especially recommended for people working with people – therapists, physicians, people in any helping professions, teachers, lawyers, social workers, educators, counselors.

Here is a comment from one of the participants of the Online Basic Course:
‘I am one of the fortunate participants who is about to join for the 5th time. The international character of these meetings and the outstanding skills of Sakino as a professional facilitator, make to me the Tuesday evening meetings an important moment of the week where we can share and learn. I have made a big shift in my personal growth throughout the last year, thanks to this wonderful group and the loving care of Sakino’. (V.E.F. Netherlands)




“Heal your Roots”

Family and Systemic Constellation and Trauma Healing Training

What is Family and Systemic Constellation?

Family and Systemic Constellations are gentle yet powerful techniques that reveal and disentangle our family ties. Constellations  help us understand that we are influenced by any system that we belong to.

Through Family and Systemic Constellations

  • We will reveal behavior patterns in the family system that continue from generation to generation
  • We will understand the hidden dynamics in our family
  • We will get different perspective and a deeper understanding of our emotional and behavioral patterns
  • We will allow full acceptance of the facts that have occurred in the past, thus solving their harmful effects on our lives
  • We will bring healing, acceptance and completion to relationships in our lives
  • We will allow love that has been frozen to flow again and a very ancient sense of separateness to dissolve itself
  • We will feel connected again, to ourselves, to our loved ones, to life
  • This method can also be used for study in organizations and teams

Is the training suitable for me and what will I get from it?

If you are a therapist, counselor, coach, or anyone intending to engage in working with people, you can use the constellation method in individual and group settings.
The constellation method will enrich your professional toolbox by enabling you to uncover hidden dynamics in your client’s family system, in a way that is not possible with other treatment methods.
Furthermore, constellation is a  fast way to detect and sometimes even repair unhealthy entanglements that may cause the client unnecessary suffering.
If you are a teacher, doctor, droula, midwife, mentor, etc., you will gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics inherent in your client’s various systems, which will enrich their capabilities and yours in a significant way.
You, for yourself, will understand more deeply the dynamics of your family of origin, your past, your country, your culture, etc., that have shaped you and influenced who you have become.
You will accept and come to terms with your past and your origin, change destructive behavior patterns of and live your life in a free, natural, satisfying and happy present.
Beyond the constellation techniques you will learn about storytelling, basic trauma healing methods and the art of listening to each other.
Furthermore, you will learn about my special approach to therapy and counseling.  My attitude to human condition, my patience and ability to create a safe container are what makes the teaching a deep and unique experience, not to be missed.

How is the training structured?

The training includes 6 teaching modules.

The In Person Training consists of 30 meetings of 8 teaching units – total 240 teaching units plus 37 self study units = 277 training units.

The Online Training consists of 24 meetings of 5 teaching units and 6 meetings of 3  teaching units plus 37 self study units = 175 training units

Each module deals with a specific topic:

Module 1 : Family Constellation – Basic Principles Part 1
We will conduct constellations of participant’s family of origin.
Participants will gain deeper understanding about  the ‘orders of love’, which includes the basic principles of place, order and balance in family systems, as described by Bert Hellinger.

Module 2 : Family Constellation – Basic Principles Part 2
We will facilitate constellations on specific topics such as: relationships, body symptoms, cultural and social issues and more

Module 3 : Biography Seminar,  – We will work in depth with participant’s personal life story, using genograms, photos and detailed information over several generations.
This module includes healing rituals and requires various preparations, which are assigned in Module 2.

Module 4 :  Working with different themes, including trauma. You will learn about the dynamics of trauma, how to identify trauma symptoms and how to deal with trauma and how to protect from (re) experiencing trauma in constellations.

Module 5 : You will learn how to conduct constellations in individual sessions, using symbols, placeholders and imaginations. You will also learn to use constellations beyond the definition of a family, for example, corporations, social systems, etc. You will learn how to use constellation work online.

Module 6 : Practical Implementation and Supervision – Students will practice constellations with each other under supervision. You will learn how to practice self-care – how to protect yourself and stay healthy and strong while dealing with your client’s life issues, families, and relationships.

There will be mandatory meetings between modules with training assistants, for sharing and practicing.

  • Participants will receive assignments between modules

  • The course will be conducted in English (with translation if needed)

  • After completing all parts of the training, you will receive a certificate of participation and completion. (If you are missing a module, you can catch up on the same module in another training within two years.)

Participation in the training is only possible in full – the number of places in the course is limited.

Here a few testimonials from students:

‘The process I went through in my studies with Sakino was one of the most significant things I have done in my life.  It is a process that has brought a great deal of health, tranquility and harmony to my life.  Sakino holds a healing space I have never seen before. A safe, enabling and very very attentive space, where even the most sensitive person receives visibility, recognition and respect for his needs, along with the deep healing of past experiences. It is a space where wounds can rise to the surface and heal. A space that teaches us to be more attentive to ourselves.   In these encounters I discovered truths that lived in me unconsciously, and I rediscovered myself in very deep ways, that I had not experienced before. Like a key detector, this process knows how to locate key issues that live within us, and allow subtle yet deep changes, to occur. I learned a lot from Sakino, both as a clinic therapist, and as a constellation and group facilitator. In fact, Sakino understands trauma and post-trauma expressions in the most detailed, professional and profound way I have ever encountered, and therefore, the space she holds knows how to address all of these very well. This is an experience that I recommend to anyone who loves themselves, and love people, even before addressing the rich professional tools that this course provides. The experience of the constellations with Sakino, builds inside the knowing that there is a place for everything, and for everyone within the group, within the whole. The family constellation itself is a tool that has both the ability to really touch the root, very quickly and very sharply, as well as a space of magic, and healing that is sometimes experienced as a miracle. Therefore, I  recommend therapists and group facilitators to give themselves this gift, heal the roots of their being, and become better therapists and facilitators, with a larger and more attentive container. Thank you dear Sakino, for all you have given me, personally and professionally.   Ayala Emma On 2021

‘My constellation teacher Sakino Mathilde Sternberg has rich and deep study and experience, as well as being of German Origin. This healing and transformational work is her most precious gift to all people. Every constellation that we did including Holocaust material was undeniably strengthened by the inclusion of her presence as the powerful space-holder she is and also as someone of German origin.’ M.L.2021

Among all the things that came to my door in the year of Corona, there was the opportunity to deepen my knowledge and experience in ‘Family Constellation’. I discovered Sakino Mathilde Sternberg, a psychologist from Berlin, a constellation facilitator, and above all a sensitive, smart and unusual personality in the world. I went with her and with many other good people on a journey into the mind, the body, the awareness, the personal story, the trauma, and above all a journey to healing and recovery. With the constellation technique we can observe the breadth and depth of the situation, discover new perspectives on our story, receive hidden information and begin to change the old patterns. For me this meeting is life changing. I’m still walking the path and already closer to myself than ever. The way I look at the world and the people around me got a new perspective. My body started talking to me, meaning I started listening to it, and also to my heart.
Sakino has a wonderful ability to hold the space in the group, with deep listening and an open heart. She leads the participants with in-depth knowledge and rich experience, a precise combination of professionalism and ethics with humanity, empathy and love.
