Meet the 2017 staff

Admin & Registrar

Peter Touchard
Peter Touchard
Peter Touchard’s main passion is to help people to recognize their inherent ability to create, change, grow and heal. He does this by helping his clients access the deeper parts of themselves, using Systemic Constellation work and Neuro-Linguistic Programing, and by sharing what he’s learned from indigenous wisdom traditions over his 7+ years of personal experience with those ways. By remembering our deeper connections to our inherent wisdom, we become more conscious agents of change in our own lives.

Peter is also a fan of logistics, organization and (of course) helping people, which is why he’s happy to be the registrar of the upcoming West Coast Intensive! He also volunteered with the 2015 North American Systemic Constellations Conference, which ignited his desire to help bring an awareness of this Constellation work out to the masses.

You can see more about Peter’s San Francisco-based practice via his website www.petertouchard.com.
