“The Enneagram is a multi-layered symbol of
transformation. It provides a structure and a process for change. It opens up a way for the complete
development of the human being.” -
- Carol Ann Gotch, Enneagram Teacher, Inscapes Winnipeg
The enneagram is a powerful tool for identifying patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour in everyday life that acts as a short cut to insight about why we do what we do. Through this self-awareness tool we are able to identify how we use our personality as a defense mechanism against stress and how to open up to new possibilites of living that are freer and more whole.
Pamela has taught the enneagram in Alberta for 10 years at beginner and advanced levels and has studied with Canada's top teachers for over 20 years. She has an articulate and direct speaking style with an emphasis on making philosophical concepts accessible and practical. Currently, she is focusing on bringing the enneagram to other psychologists, therapists and people helpers as she finds the enneagram invaluable in her own practice. The introduction to the enneagram for people helpers is specifically developed to enhance clinical practice and increase therapeutic alliance by helping clients feel understood and met in effective ways.
