Getting started with the Enneagram
Most people start their Enneagram journey by attending a workshop to help them find their type and explore the psychological Enneagram.

If you want to use the Enneagram with other people, you must complete the Foundation Programme first. All professional Enneagram schools insist that you begin your professional training by exploring your own type mechanism first – we can only help others when we have experienced the power of the system and used it for our own growth.
Beginning Professional Training with the Enneagram
- The first step is to become a Typing Process Facilitator. Here you learn the skills to help others discover their type. This training will also greatly deepen your knowledge and experience of types other than your own.
- You then learn how to facilitate Panel Interviews. This teaches you how to work with groups of people in the Narrative Tradition to help them explore their type. The training also deepens your knowledge of all the type mechanisms (including your own), and teaches you the personal grounding practices you need in order to be centred when you are working with others.
Specialised Professional Development
Once you have completed the Typing Process and Panel Facilitator training you are eligible to complete further Professional training programmes to become an Enneagram Teacher or Coach. Contact us to find out more.
