ENNEAGRAM COACHING BENEFITS
To truly benefit from the transformative potential of the Enneagram, coaching is a great way to go from theoretical study to embodiment. Coaching supports us to put the self-learning into practice. Coaching is a mixture of education and application, which may include exercises to complete, somatic tracking and sensations-focused practices, journaling, role play, reading and homework assignments to coincide with the learnings shared in session.
Coaching is focused on the learning and growth underfoot and applying it to one’s daily interactions, daily work, the relationship we have with self and those relationships we have with others. Personalized coaching supports the embodiment of our personal and professional development, which leads to bettering each of our interpersonal relationships, including (and so critically) our parenting (for those of us parents). And for those harder times in our lives, learning the Enneagram, which is such a great “self-awareness” model for enhanced self-regulation, can make all the difference in the world. As the more consciously and compassionately we come to know ourselves and our defense systems, the less fearful and terrorized we may come to be as we face the greater and more overwhelming challenges of a typical and highly complex human life.
IS ENNEAGRAM COACHING THE SAME AS THERAPY?
Enneagram coaching, any coaching for that matter, is not psychotherapy, but it is coordinated and complementary to one’s deeper inner work. Coaching is a powerful way to take our own development into our own hands. Because the Enneagram is just about the most powerful self-assessment, de-shaming, self-empowering “body of learning” available, it surely saves eons of time and struggle trying to figure ourselves out alone! The Enneagram instead provides an incisive map to understanding ourselves — acceptingly, motivationally, temperamentally — and guides each of us toward our own profound self-insights. With it, we come to learn and to own our inherent strengths and gifts,, as well as excavate (gently) and intriguingly our image-controlling, “I have to be loved” blindspots. The Enneagram sheds light on our internally driven, core motivations without shaming us. And our habitual defense patterns and well worn adaptive strategies begin to make sense are become identifiable.
All that said, Enneagram study and coaching is designed to enhance and not replace other clinical therapies that may be necessary and beneficial.

COACHING for RELATIONSHIPS, using the Enneagram
Relationships coaching always begins with an Enneagram Self-discovery Interview for each individual and the coach-with-client determination of one’s wings, dominant instinctual drive, and level of developmental well-being.
Relationships coaching focuses on the issues at hand and is custom-designed to meet the needs and challenges of the relational dynamics. Relationships coaching includes a focus on our adaptive strategies, emotional regulation and dysregulation, and the defense system of each individual. 100 out of 100, the defense system is the critical challenge in each relationship and a main source of the suffering and discord experienced. Immovable defenses can make resolution nearly impossible.

COACHING for PARENTING, using the Enneagram
Parenting coaching always begins with an Enneagram Self-discovery Interview for the parent/caregiver as well as for the child/children involved (age appropriate) and the coach-with-client determination of one’s wings, dominant instinctual drive, and level of developmental well-being.
Parenting according to our own Enneagram type, and not in accordance with a given child’s temperamental needs, combined with the impacts of our own level of developmental well-being (how wounded or how conscious are we?) are a focus of coaching for parenting, using the Enneagram.

COACHING for RELATIONAL-ABUSE, SELF-RECOVERY, using the Enneagram
Individual coaching for self-recovery, relational-abuse recovery always begins with an Enneagram Self-discovery Interview and the coach-with-client determination of one’s wings, dominant instinctual drive, and level of developmental well-being.
Self-recovery coaching, particularly after relational-challenge, dissolution, abuses and/or emotional heartache focuses on the Enneagram type structure, the defense mechanisms, adaptive-coping strategies, and defense system of one’s type, with the goal being to return to, recover, and fortify one’s self-agency, self-sovereignty, and self-empowerment. Whether recovering from co-dependency, highly volatile emotional dysregulation, addictive disorders or avoidance strategies, it all begins and ends with the self and a caring journey inward.
As Gabor Maté says, “It’s not what’s wrong with me, but what happened to me?” And how did the structure of my spiritual-neurological being organize itself to survive, cope, and compensate?”
