Cofounder and Director of the Enneagram Academy

Robert is cofounder and director of the Enneagram Academy. He has been facilitating Enneagram workshops and training sessions for over ten years. He has undertaken extensive training with Don Riso and Russ Hudson of the Enneagram Institute in the US. He has also explored deeply the work of Jung and other Jungians including Joseph Campbell and Robert Johnson. He has incorporated much of this work into the Enneagram workshops. He feels it is invaluable in developing a deeper understanding of the Enneagram types and the impact of the shadow and the unconscious on the behaviour of the types.

He continues to be amazed at the insights the Enneagram provides for himself and for others. He has been deeply involved in personal and spiritual development for more than twenty years and he believes the Enneagram stands out some of the most insightful work he has done. He has been inspired by the profound work of Don Riso and Russ Hudson whose writing and teaching have provided such a wonderful platform for psychological and spiritual development.


Andrée is a Counselling Psychologist with a longstanding interest in personality type as a path to personal growth and understanding. Her initial exploration of the Enneagram was very much a personal one. In contrast to some other typologies, the Enneagram proved to be dynamic and hopeful – offering profound insights and concrete directions for growth. These days Andrée enjoys sharing the Enneagram with individuals, couples and groups as a rich map for understanding not just self but others.

Andrée has a private practice on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria and sees a wide range of adults, adolescents and couples.

Chad has a background in drama and performance. He explored deeply the similarities between traditional Japanese performing arts and modern day movement modalities. He has run many workshops in movement and voice and is a pioneer in developing new ways to fully embody our voice and body through increased awareness. He has a deep knowledge of the Enneagram and has co-facilitated many workshops with the Enneagram Academy. He is particularly interested in the way different types express themselves in movement  and how our emotional states manifest in the body.
