When I was at drama school, my mother got me a book all about personality types to help me develop characters. As soon as I read about enneagram Fours something clicked inside. This symbol knew me! I was creative; I was jealous; I was grumpy... I was a Four!
Over a decade has passed. I still love the enneagram; the only difference is now I love it because I realised that I am not a Four (or social 4-7-9 to be a bit more specific!) - I just played the part of one. Once I realised this, I started to glimpse the possibility of a broader self behind the facade. It's like learning to see that I was just playing a character and realising I didn't have to take that character seriously any more.
I'm particularly drawn to using my enneagram strengths (authenticity, lovingness, playfulness) to help people align their life with their own strengths. I believe we are here to live lives that are joyful, meaningful and full of letting our unique light shine.
N.B. Since making this website my focus of attention has shifted to positive psychology and now I work with Bailey & French to help create a happier world of work, volunteer with Action for Happiness to help create a happier society, and do Life Theming for fun in my spare time.
