"Healing is a gift…healing happens because forces are at work; forces that extend far beyond the individual."
~ Bert Hellinger in No Waves Without the Ocean
Greetings. I am Sunitha, a practitioner of Family Constellations Therapy and founder of The Metta Way, based in Bangalore, India.
Family Constellations Therapy was evolved by German psychotherapist, Bert Hellinger. The foundation of this work is the systemic view, which sees every individual as part of a system, the primary and most important being the family.
At its core, this work is a profoundly transformative understanding of love and the many ways it creates enduring bonds amongst family members and binds them to their family systems. We begin to understand the origins of our suffering and difficulties through constellations. It allows us to begin healing by releasing what doesn't serve us, enabling us to live fearlessly authentic, present and empowered lives.
Metta means loving-compassion in the Pali language. The Metta Way offers individual and group sessions of this work, online and in-person, in English and Kannada. Sessions are open to young people between 13 - 18 years and adults including couples.
I offer an integrated, trauma-informed approach that is rooted in Family Constellations Therapy. I also draw deeply on my arts practice and training in Transactional Analysis and Somatics. Sessions include counselling and working with the body/breath/voice/imagination, art and writing.
