Tanja Meyburgh, counselling psychologist, founder of African Constellations, has taken 17 groups through a full two-year facilitator training and is the primary pioneer of constellations work in South Africa with 20 years of experience specialising in this field.  More recently she co-founded Ancestral Connections integrating dance and constellations, the REAL Academy, an online resource for Embodied and Ancestral Learning, and completed a 20-day Systemic Constellation training for the Arabic World. Tanja has also presented at the international intensives in Germany, South Africa and Australasia, and accepted invitations to teach at conferences and workshops in Germany, Austria, Belgium, United Kingdom, Kuwait, Netherlands, Portugal and the USA. 

Tanja’s MA (Psych) in Narrative Therapy has had a big impact on how she works with diverse cultures and views power relations and marginalised voices and communities. She also has training and experience in wilderness therapy, art therapy, expressive movement and Southern African lineage wisdom. Tanja provides a creative and experiential learning space that brings a sense of soul and spirit in a psychologically grounded way. Her interest in self-growth, personal & collective ritual and embodiment supports her to hold a broad and deep container for clients’ personal and professional process. Her work is described by those who know her as gentle and incisive. Tanja lives in Cape Town with her two children.

Love ambushed you, it lay in wait, dormant for days or years. It was the red thread, the peach stone, the kiss, the forgiveness. It came after you, it escaped you, it was invisible, it was everything.
