Professionalism & the Enneagram

What to look for in an Enneagram Workshop?


Or to find a great coach, counsellor or team facilitator who is Enneagram aware? Use the information and checklists here to help you find some options and make a good decision on who to approach.

Internationally, there is an ever-increasing number of organisations offering Enneagram courses, workshops, coaching and professional qualifications. With the proliferation of online learning, these are more and more accessible to us here in Ireland and the UK.  

But it pays to realise that the Enneagram is not trademarked. The Enneagram community fought long and hard for professional accreditation not to be required so the Enneagram could be widely available and not locked up in the copyright of a few providers. As a result, absolutely anyone can offer Enneagram courses. It comes as no surprise then, that the quality of what’s on offer varies hugely. To compound the problem, in our media-led world, fine words and professional marketing can be misleading.

We strongly recommend that you choose to work with a school or individual accredited with one of the mainstream Enneagram schools listed below and/or by the International Enneagram Association. But we know there are some good people out there who are not accredited. And we’re aiming to help you find Enneagram next steps that work for you. 

We’d like you to have a great experience when you meet the Enneagram!
