Healing the Generational Line

Listen to the ancestral call!


“A diviner combines aspects of the healer, social psychologist, priest and social worker”
 Hirst (1990)

My birth name is Sonya and my initiated Sangoma name is Makhosi Nyoni. I have travelled to both West and South Africa, developing the skills and knowledge to become an African Traditional Healer. I integrate these learnings into my Western therapeutic practice, Ancestral Constellations.

The traditional healer is the first point of contact when there are health issues, mental or physical in many African cultures. Their role is as a ‘counsellor or griotte’ for the community, helping to maintain social order and guard traditional knowledge passed down from generation to generation.

In Diaspora communities of colour, we have become distanced from this knowledge, leading to a gap in our psychological and healing knowledge that Eurocentric training courses cannot fill. But we can reconnect to these older cosmologies and bring new information to our therapeutic work.

The healing retreats and learning immersions on offer provide a way to reclaim these ‘other ways of knowing’, drawing on the old and the new, the known and unknown. The purpose is to fill a gap in missing knowledge creating new paths for personal and professional transgenerational healing.

Amazed by the transformation..

“Thanks again for the powerful constellation session. I experienced lots of big realisations and processing that had been deeply subconscious up until then. Since the session I am seeing a clearer pathway for future healing and feel a lightness, peace and clarity around my family and ancestral dynamics that I haven’t felt before.”
