About Jo the Founder of Family Balance NZ

My hometown is Tauranga, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Taupo, New Zealand is my birthplace, my ancestors are Swiss German, Scottish & Irish, many of them arrived in Aotearoa/New Zealand in the early 1900's. I am the youngest of three children.

I have a teaching degree specialising in special education. I'm a trained facilitator in Family Constellation therapy and also a facilitator for trauma sensitive yin yoga. I also have trained in level 1 & 2 Reiki.

In my opinion, Family Constellation Therapy is magical as it goes beyond healing the individual. It has the potential to contribute to healing on a global scale. Family Constellation recognises the interconnectedness of individuals, families, and communities.

I love offering this amazing healing work to communities and individuals. It consistently provides healing in ways that I could never have imagined.

I believe this therapy is healing the world.

What is Family Balance NZ?

Family Balance NZ takes a holistic approach to healing, considering not just the immediate family members, but also the extended family network, including ancestors. This approach recognises that healing the past can positively impact the present and future.

The team designs customised family constellations for each client, tailoring the process to the unique dynamics and challenges of their family system. This might involve using representatives (individuals who stand in for family members) or symbolic objects to represent family members and relationships.

The team consists of a diverse group of facilitators, each with their own cultural, professional, and personal backgrounds. This diversity allows them to approach each constellation from multiple perspectives, ensuring a well-rounded and inclusive healing process.

While family constellation therapy is at the core of their practice, "Family Balance NZ" facilitators are trained in various therapeutic modalities. This enables them to integrate techniques from psychology, mindfulness, trauma healing, and other fields to provide comprehensive support to clients.

In addition to individual sessions, the team organizes workshops and retreats focused on family constellation therapy. These events provide participants with a safe and immersive environment to explore and heal family dynamics, while also learning about the principles of this therapeutic approach.

Family Balance NZ places a strong emphasis on post-constellation support. Facilitators stay connected with clients, offering guidance and resources to help them integrate the insights and healing from their constellation experience into their daily lives.

The team is committed to ongoing research and innovation in the field of family constellation therapy. They collaborate with experts, contribute to research studies, and explore ways to refine and evolve the practice for optimal results.

The concept of "Family Balance NZ" extends beyond individual healing. The team aims to foster a sense of community among clients, creating a supportive network where individuals can share experiences, insights, and progress in their healing journeys.
