“The unexamined life is a life not worth living,” Socrates.

Knowing yourself is the first step towards understanding and appreciating how you interact and engage with others.



This course will offer you an opportunity to discover your personality style and will provide profound insights into how others understand themselves.

This involves having a look at how you are when you’re at your best and what disrupts or challenges you. Discovering this will empower you to go beyond limiting behaviours that cause stress and limit your well-being.

Current studies in neurobiology tell us that the front part of the brain, the neocortex, searches automatically and relentlessly for familiar patterns so we can learn, adapt and respond to life situations. We continue to consolidate these patterns so they become habitual in order to make life predictable. These patterns help you move through life and affect your thoughts, attitudes, behaviour, relationships with others and your entire way of being,

The Enneagram enables you to become aware of these patterns. This can be very liberating and can bring great personal freedom and development in every aspect of your life.

Used by organizations and individuals throughout the world, the applications of this human development model are extensive and include discovering how to communicate effectively, improve your leadership skills, and work & relate effectively with others.

It’s an ideal workshop to bring a friend or partner as it facilitates a compassionate approach towards those who are important in your life.

Topics will include:-

  • Discovering your personality type – what makes you think, feel and behave the way you do?
  • Managing Yourself – what makes you reactive and how do you manage this?
  • Knowing and Understanding others accurately – how and why do people think and feel differently from you?
  • Ways to developing rapport with others who don’t see the things the way you do.
  • Taking on a path of development – discovering what challenges you and transforming it into a path of personal freedom.

Feedback from the introductory course:

“That was wonderful, fascinating, and inspiring….”

“I found the presentation very clear and I really appreciated your low-key and intuitive facilitation approach which really helped me start the process of engaging with and internalising the Enneagram…”

“I found the session extremely useful in the way it has helped me to be more accepting of myself and challenged me to build on what I’ve learnt. It has left me with lots of food for thought.”
