My teaching approach

The Enneagram reveals the finest details of our own and others' Reality Maps and Reality Strategies (Tom Condon's way of describing the 9 Ennea-Styles). It helps us to avoid going wrong because of our unconscious distortions and misconceptions about reality (including of ourselves) and to discover better pathways through our lives.

Each Enneagram style is an adaptive and defensive system geared to navigate the difficulties associated with human life. It consists of unconscious attempts to alleviate uncertainty and avoid suffering, which take the form of distinctive preoccupations, fixations, ways of relating, and behaviour patterns that we call “ego” or personality. 

In more spiritual terms, the ego strategy is a collection of identifications with our conditioning that lead us to forget our essential nature as spiritual beings. Releasing these identifications is the only pathway to reconnection with the hidden truth of what we really are. This inward journey, however, is immensely difficult work, and the Enneagram helps us to find our way through the many veils of illusion that separate us from an experiential knowing of what we really are.  

My teaching includes trauma-informed explorations of the types in terms of their function as compensations for failures in the early holding environment, understanding the agency, security and relationship challenges that accompany each defensive strategy. I also explore the spiritual dimension of the Enneagram and pathways to new states of being and awareness. 


My courses always include kinaesthetic learning and the experiences of practical resources, tools and processes for you to take away and apply immediately in your personal life and in your work as an Enneagram coach, facilitator, therapist, teacher or healer. 


I create learning spaces of inclusivity, safety and connection where you can grow personally and achieve new understanding through sharing and reflection with fellow-students.

These interpersonal and interpersonal insights will deepen your empathy, presence and confidence in your personal relationships and work.


I integrate and synthesise top-class Enneagram teachings from the greatest teachers and connect insights from related disciplines including:

 Wisdom Traditions from East to West
 Analytical, Psychodynamic and Self-efficacy Psychology
The latest Psychobiological research
The NARM ® The NeuroAffective Relational Model* 

My study of and training and supervision by the most amazing teachers

The Enneagram helps us to see our very personal Reality Maps


"A mixture of enthusiasm and horror"

“At first glance, the Enneagram seems to be just another system for pigeon-holing people. But look twice and you see it’s describing something central: your core strategy for making sense of reality, your basic life stance, the axis of your flat earth. As you investigate the system and compare its insights with your own experience, you may be amazed at its depth and accuracy.
When people initially identify their Enneagram style, they often feel stunned that the core of their psyche has been so vividly exposed. Sometimes in life there are moments of creative breakthrough – what are called “Ah Ha!” experiences – when you suddenly see the familiar in a new way. The typical early encounter with the Enneagram is more like an “Oh, my God!” experience, a mixture of enthusiasm and horror.
Like motel room lighting, the system seems to first highlight our less attractive features. The Enneagram is uncomfortably specific about stories we tell ourselves, masks we wear for others, excuses we have for not getting what we want. It shows us how we trap ourselves with habitual responses, overlook our blind spots and actively defend our illusions and vanities. We have expectations, we make assumptions; we’re certain of the world that we have in our head. But, sometimes we get things all wrong.
– Tom Condon (my teacher, mentor, and guide on the pathway to becoming Real)
