Professional Training with the Enneagram
In order to use the Enneagram with others, you need do inner work on your own type patterns. Professional training therefore starts with completing the Foundation Programme, where alongside exploring the nine Types, you learn to deepen your skills and compassion in the following areas:
- managing your own reactivity
- awareness of others
- responding to others appropriately.
On successful completion of the Foundation Programme, your next step is to become a Typing Process Facilitator. This training teaches you the skills to help others discover their type and also greatly deepens your knowledge and experience of all the types. From there, you have two options:
- Enneagram Panel and Teacher training. You learn how to work with groups of people in the Narrative Tradition to help them explore their type. You will deepen your knowledge of all the type mechanisms, and learn personal grounding practices to keep you centred when you are working with others.
- One-to-one Practitioner training – You learn the key principles of using the Enneagram in a one-to-one context and discover the gifts and challenges of working with each Enneagram type. You will also explore your own type biases and build your skills in self-reflection, self-observation and receptive awareness.
See Professional Pathways for more detail on how these programmes fit together.
