What is Enneagram?
I often use Enneagram personality typology in my practice. Its origins can be found long ago in the past, approximately 2000 years ago.
Enneagram is psychological typology that divides personalities into nine interconnected types. These types are represented by numbers to emphasize that no type is better or worse than the other.
I work with Enneagram during my consultations with clients or during therapies almost every day. I think this tool is a unique method to understand and reveal who we actually are. A lot of workshops under this theme are held by me and I look forward to meet you and to experience together the revelation of Enneagram during next workshop. More information can be found here.
If you will be interested in more we can work with you in individual therapies, consultations, in which I will help you to look deeply into what and why stops you in your life and I will help you to release it.
Enneagram is a unique method which reflects personality´s behaviour and it also goes deeper into incentives and motives that starts his behaviour. It is useful tool to achieve permanent change in our lives – in areas by which we are tied up: either it is constant fear, anxiety attacks, procrastination, anger outbreaks, fear to express “negative” feelings (fury, dread, etc.), or unconscious manipulation of others, addiction to other people, jealousness, enviousness, repeating states of exhaustion or burn out, inability to stop and have a rest, etc.
If we take a look at the root of our behaviour, at what lies beneath it (why I can not stop going on, why I am scared to speak or fell some emotion, why I freeze in situations where I need to take an action…) and we realize what is the reason, then the change automatically starts to flow into this behaviour. In contrast with other typologies it is not necessary to take over a new type of behaviour in Enneagram. We do not need to learn new techniques or hide our behaviour under another layer of learned behaviour – it would not last for a longer time. It is enough to understand our incentives and motives and realize them and consciously start to notice them every day. And all that binds our hands together and prevents us to live our life in a full way and joyfully will start to leave away step by step.
How to work with Enneagram?
A new road will be open in order to get to know yourself from a different point of view after you learn about this typology. You do not remain at superficial behaviour only – it is just an expression of something subconscious. But you just go to that subconscious and pull it out into a light of consciousness. When you understand yourself and the others as well, why they act as they do, you will change your communication and relationships subsequently. You will also understand that your incentives and motives are not what holds you tied but that you are above them. With this point of view we can come to permanent changes in behaviour. Even though it is not work for impatient ones, a progress could be reached very quickly.
