Tired of the Habits That Keep You Feeling Stuck? with Johanna Lynn

In this episode of The Functional Medicine Radio Show, Dr. Carri’s special guest Johanna Lynn discusses the habits and patterns that are keeping you stuck.

Johanna is an expert in the Family Constellation approach – a living science that explores the dynamics of family relationships connected to our well-being.

The Family Constellation Approach is one of the most rapidly expanding forms of therapy in the world and is practiced in more than 35 countries – an approach that helps to break destructive family patterns of unhappiness, illness, chronic pain, phobias, infertility and addiction…just to offer you some examples.

Johanna works with clients to untangle the dense habits that pull vitality and enjoyment from life, so that they can live more freely doing what inspires and matters to them most.

Main Questions Asked:

  • What are some of the greatest stresses we have?
  • Where do you begin with a client to help? How do you support them in reducing their stress or increasing their energy levels?
  • How are the inner images formed?
  • What kind of research has been done that looks at the effect our family relationships have on our health?
  • What do you suggest for people who are cut off from one or more family members?
  • What if you’ve purposely moved away from your family or avoid seeing them?
  • Since Family Constellations are new to most of us – what exactly happens at your workshops?
  • Does this approach take several sessions or workshops to receive the benefits?
  • Do you work over the phone or Skype? Or, do clients need to come to see you personally in your office?

Key Points made by Johanna:

  • Often our stresses are related to the unresolved conflicts within the family we grew up in.
  • Johanna beings with specific questions – the core language approach – to really understand where the inner images come from.
  • A lot of the images we have from our childhood are not healing for us but actually form the blueprint for how our life unfolds.
  • Even what happens to us prenatally gets stored in the body and affects our stress response.
  • The Harvard Mastery of Stress study proves that our early family relationships definitely affect our health.
  • Research shows that 100% of people that had a strained relationship with both mom and dad suffer with serious health issues 35 years later.
  • Even if you move away you still take your family with you. This causes a lot more personal challenges that keep us repeating the patterns that keep us stuck.
  • The Family Constellation approach is very experiential – it’s a three-dimensional group process that offers the ability to clear core emotions, patterns, and habits.
  • This approach is designed in a way that it is not necessary to keep going for ongoing therapy sessions.
  • The Family Constellation approach can allow for a deeper sense of peace and increased self-esteem.
  • Johanna works all over the world via Skype or phone consultations.
