I am a Specialist in New Family Constellations by INSCONSFA (the Family Constellations Institute Brigitte Champetier de Ribes), and have been facilitating new family constellations since June 2013 and have also been a Certified Trainer Candidate of the Institute  [delivering training on New Family Constellations from December 2020 to June 2021].

I was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1972, and in 2015 life brought me to the Basque Country, where I live now, in Getxo, Bizkay (Spain).

I studied sociology in Madrid, majoring in social anthropology, and went to Ireland with the intention of studying ethnomusicology for a year, but it so happened I stayed for 16 years. 

There I embarked on a PhD in ethnomusicology with the generous help and supervision of the late Prof. Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin and Dr. Colin Quigley (at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick). 

My thesis, which focused on the Basque sound tradition and instrument Txalaparta as a social phenomenon, led me to Iruñea-Pamplona (in Spain), where I did most of my research.
During the process I discovered that my great grandmother was from there (four generations lived there, migrated from the Roncal Valley and with roots in the north of the Basque Country, in France), just where my doctoral research had taken me “by chance” and where I did the bulk of my fieldwork. In 2017 I found out I had living family there and was able to meet them for the first time.

I returned to Spain in 2014 to embark on a whole new life I would not have dared start had it not been for all the healing initiated in my life and family system since I came into contact with family constellations in the Fall of 2007 by the hand of Colette Green, in Ireland.

 In February of 2008 I attended a weekend workshop delivered by Bert Hellinger in London, and in December of that year I started my journey through the New Family Constellations guided by Brigitte Champetier de Ribes, whose wokshops I attended as often as I could, as well as Bert and Sophie Hellinger’s in Germany in 2014 and Avila in 2015.

I follow closely Brigitte Champetier ever evolving approach to New Family Constellations, and I am endeavoured to putting my capacity to constellate in the service of others, in your service, in the service of Reconciliation and Life.
