Zita Cox BA Hons; Dip Counseling; MSc (supervison and counseling)

Psychotherapist Zita Cox is an experienced international facilitator of Environmental Constellations for individuals and organisations. Her training and work expanded to include wilderness therapy, equine-assisted psychotherapy, eco-psychology and family systems constellations in the 1990s. Her interest in constellations led to two years’ intensive training in Systemic Constellations with Dr Albrecht Mahr who worked for many years with Bert Hellinger in Germany. Zita then pioneered the application of the constellation technique to issues relating to the environment, with very interesting results.

Previously Zita worked for 21 years as an integrative counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor both in private practice and in the NHS. Zita also worked as a coach and consultant for managers in both the corporate and voluntary sectors. She has a Person-Centred Counselling Diploma from Metanoia, additional training in Gestalt, and a Masters Degree in Counselling Supervision and Training from Bristol University.

Zita’s first degree is in Philosophy; she sees environmental constellations as contributing towards a necessary shift in our thinking, which ‘Earth Scholar’ Thomas Berry refers to as ‘the great turning’.

Zita has facilitated environmental constellations in Britain, California and New Zealand. She has written an article on Environmental Constellations, ‘A Different Kind of Field Trip’, published in ‘The Knowing Field’ January 2007. She contributed a chapter on Trauma to ‘Balancing Acts: Studies in Counselling Training’ edited by Hazel Johns (Routledge (1998)). She did a research paper into Bystanding and Intervention in extreme situations.
