Wholistic Constellations Coach and Trainer 


Edwina Van Der Westhuizen is a wholistic coach and family Constellations trainer and facilitator and has a Masters in Counselling  

Born in South Africa at the height of Apartheid and fleeing with her family at age 3 to move to Australia to start a new life. Many early events shaped her life and in later years turned into an interest in seeking truth.  She became very aware the key to helping others and the world was to work on yourself first. This led to a great interest or quest in how to be in the world interacting with others and still hold that state of being present in that moment. Her interest in human behaviour led to working with people to help them unlock their true potential

Edwina started her career in fashion as a pattern maker at 18 years of age. She has the ability to be given a picture, idea or concept and made it into a workable, wearable garment of clothing through interconnecting shapes/patterns. Highly sort after, she worked for some of the Australia's high end designers before switching her talents to a different focus.  

This ability to take a concept and make it real and tangible then shifted her to training and coaching (life and business). Edwina helps people bring the puzzle pieces of their life and challenges together in a new way to create new outcomes and possibilities. She is always looking for what works to give outstanding results, wanting to help people work smarter not harder. 

Having moved quickly to the top of her successful careers in fashion, life and business coaching,  management, training, facilitation and consulting. Edwina often says family Constellations found her in 2003, and started the next chapter. 

Edwina's method of working with people is wholistic, simple yet profound. 

Coming from the stance that the power and everything you need is already within you, she helps people to reclaim their authentic self, through powerful modalities and tools. 


She has trained all over the world and has a knack for breaking complex topics and concepts into simple to understand language. Integrating the mind, body and soul in all that she does. 


Edwina works with individuals, teams and organisations

She is present to every person in the room at all times and her amazing insight just seems to flow. For anyone feeling the burden of entrenched unconscious patterns, this workshop can help unravel the blocks to feeling free to move forward. Whether booking a constellation for yourself, or to be a representative for others, I guarantee you will be blown away by the process. Thank you Edwina, for your insight and guidance. I left the workshop feeling grounded, positive and light and I look forward to participating in the future".
