“This genogram workshop was the beginning of something great for me. Something great what haven’t ended yet. What I found out was a new and surprising perception. I see my family and ancestors in a new light now. I must admit that during the workshop I went through up and downs and there were some painful feelings but there also were happiness, bliss, warmth and proud. A big thank you to you dear Ursula, for guiding us so well through it with all your knowledge, wisdom, your blessed heart and intuition.”

My expectation of Ursula’s Genogram Workshop was to put down all the information I had mostly gathered a few months before and to have Ursula have a look if there was anything interesting to see which could lead to entanglements or anything I should/could work on.
First of all I found that there was still a lot of information missing and I will probably never have a full picture of my ancestors. On the other side I really enjoyed trying to find out more and from one point on I felt all my ancestors near me giving me strength and power and made me feel guarded by my family.
This feeling helped me to take care of some matters I didn’t have the energy for until then. It also helps me to feel what I like to do with my life and taking care of myself.
A great experience I can recommend to anyone interested in family constellations and their ancestry.

“With regards to the genogram workshop, it proved to be as insightful as I thought it would have been. I had no expectations but I have been trying to seek help to understand certain issues that I feel that I should have dealt with long time ago and this was another occasion to do so. At first I was a bit reluctant to share personal info with the rest of the participants but from the second session onwards I felt comfortable enough to do so. What certainly came out of it was that I have to continue working on understanding why I act in a certain way when I’m in a relationship, and in particular why I tried to re-enact certain childhood episodes during my last one. I am still trying to understand how this works through the genogram (I am still working on the genogram although I don’t think that I will have any more info at this stage) but it definitely reinforced what I became aware of through psychotherapy and I am glad that I participated.”

“I would like to thank you for how fully you dedicated your time and attention to everyone in the group, even when this required going over the agreed time. I felt genuinely heard and supported and appreciated the rare opportunity to get to know a bit about, not only my own family’s story, but also of the other members of the group. Even though I ultimately felt that it was not the right time for me to go deeper into the genogram, I am now much more aware of the power of one’s roots and am certainly looking forward to learning more about myself and my family as soon as the time is right. So thank you again, and wish you all the best!”

“The Genogram workshop led by Ursula was what I expected it to be, and wasn’t at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Family Constellations from a different, more theoretical angle, yet the reactions and insights that came to me not only during the workshops, but even during the time in between and after, took me completely by surprise, and helped me to realise how so many issues can be resolved when looking at them from a systemical point of view. The time, money, and effort spent during this workshop was truly worth it, and I will definitely recommend it to others.”

“The genogram workshop was an unforgettable experience. It changed my perspective view of people in a better and help me to respect their view. It changed my life in a much better way.”
(“JP” – Genogram Workshop – November/December 2016)
“I attended Ursula’s genogram workshop more for curiosity, as I hadn’t heard about a Genogram before. Very interesting factors resulted from this workshop which made me realise how strongly connected we are with our ancestors, and how their lives and customs have effected my life in general.
I can now understand myself more and accept who I am because I know where I’m coming from. I feel serene, as some dark clouds have lifted, and I feel I can move on with my life in my own way, due to the knowledge I’ve received from my Genogram.”

“Il corso sul genogramma l’ho trovato molto interessante; mi è sembrata corretta la formula delle 4 serate, mi piace la tua conduzione, aspettative non ne avevo in particolare.
Ho trovato un ottimo strumento per fare chiarezza sulle proprie origini, per me è stato importante vedere tutte le informazioni della famiglia di appartenenza scritte e catalogate su un foglio, a tale punto che in queste vacanze natalizie ho continuato il lavoro di ricerca e ho aggiunto nuovi elementi.
Facendo questo tipo di lavoro, mi sento più “sicuro”, riscoprire anche solo alcuni nomi e sapere qualche verità in più dei propri avi mi fa sentire più vicino al gruppo famigliare e il “peso” dell’appartenenza si alleggerisce.
A volte mi accorgo nei discorsi di casa che quando mi dicono: “sei come tua madre” o simili non mi da fastidio tanto come prima…il vedere che io ho un ruolo e una posizione sul foglio mi aiuta a non confondermi con i ruoli e le posizioni dei miei famigliari.”
