Certified Enneagram Teacher & Coach
Mary Wright, M.A., holds multiple certifications as an extensively trained Enneagram Teacher and Coach. The Enneagram, a system based on nine personality “types” is a powerful tool for self-awareness and personal growth. Combining psychology and spirituality, the Enneagram can help us quickly and accurately pinpoint obstacles within our personality that cause suffering in ourselves and in our relationships. Learning and applying the Enneagram helps individuals to better understand their motivations and reactions with astounding clarity.
How Can Enneagram Coaching Help You?
Most of us are so accustomed to our typical ways of interacting that we don’t question it – we say to ourselves and others…” Well, that’s just who I am”. The Enneagram suggests that you are actually something far greater than your familiar patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing. Each of us has an Essential Self that’s always been there but has been hidden beneath layers of “personality” or who we think we are, much like bark on a tree. Personality, or who we take ourselves to be, is simply our best strategy for navigating life while protecting our Essential Selves. Enneagram coaching will help you to connect with this deeper sense of self by learning to identify and shed the patterns of your Enneagram Type so that you’ll build a new capacity for self-awareness, productive change, and a life aligned with your finest gifts.
