About Held From Two Ends

Held From Two Ends is a space, a collaboration and a joint facilitation between Stefan Jovanović and Mahab Kazmi. Together they host family constellation workshops in London (UK), exploring the potential and novelty of distributed forms of facilitation and therapeutic interventions within the realm of ancestral and trans-generational healing. 


Mahab Kazmi weaves relational body psychotherapy with soul activism, body work and systemic facilitation. Her work comprises individual sessions, group processing, embodied journeying in private circles, organisations and retreats. She has worked therapeutically with individuals for the last 12 years. She trained as a Family Systemic Constellator with the Centre for Systemic Constellations, has assisted on Foundation and Applied level trainings with the CSC, and currently assists on the Couples Therapy Training. Mahab helps her clients unfurl their embodied authority by embracing their experience of being human through an inclusive stance that befriends different ways of seeing, sensing and belonging. Her therapeutic approach and sensibility are informed by her own mixed cultural heritage, love of movement, a deep appreciation for the healing potential of stories, as well as a decade of artistic practice exploring connection, identity, polarities and initiation. She works in Hackney (UK), Toulouse (France) and online.
