Learning about the enneagram
As you'll see if you browse my research, one of the areas I've worked on is the enneagram personality typology and its use as a tool for self-development. The enneagram describes nine different worldviews, each of which leads to a different strategy we use to get what we need in the world. These strategies help us but they can also limit us and make us react on autopilot.
Learning about the enneagram helps us to relax those habitual patterns of behaviour, build on our strengths and improve our relationships.
I am a qualified enneagram teacher in the narrative tradition, which was co-founded by Helen Palmer and David Daniels. The narrative approach uses people’s own stories to bring the enneagram to life. Learning about and experiencing the enneagram types in people's own words helps us to understand others better and see how their views of the world may differ from our own.

Enneagram evenings 2021
This year we're going to be looking at self- and spiritual development with the Enneagram, or what we call the Vice-to-Virtue transformation. It's all about unlocking the habits of type that we've built up (vice) and developing our gifts (virtue) so we can live better and more fulfilled lives.
In the first session, I'll introduce the process and then we'll take a look at each type in turn over the coming months. Come along to learn more about yourself and others in your life, and most importantly, ways to put that learning into practice!
We use teaching and interactive activities that encourage self‑reflection, helping you to learn how your type affects your approach to life and your relationships with others.
Taking part in these evening seminars will help you gain:
An introduction to the nine enneagram personality types
Increased awareness of your own motives and worldview
Understanding of your patterns of behaviour and guidelines for self-development
Deepened appreciation of the different motivations and priorities that your family, friends and colleagues may have
We ask for a $10 donation / koha to cover the teacher's time and the venue.
We look forward to welcoming you!
