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.

Brendan's passion for the Enneagram is derived from a career in providing management training and consultancy services since the 80s. This work focused on facilitating a diverse range of groups involved in organisational change and reform. Brendan has qualifications and a background in Psychology and Human Resource Management and have been using popular personality inventories such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, DiSC and Team Management Systems for over 25 years. It wasn’t until he came across the Enneagram 14 years ago that Brendan found a tool that not only provided a precise and rich map of human diversity, but could be used as a guide for human spirituality and transformation. It has helped him with his own personal journey and provided an amazing and insightful framework for understanding and overcoming personal unconscious barriers, improve relationships and lead a more fulfilling life.  
 
Brendan became a certified Enneagram teacher in 2013 and has enjoyed facilitating workshops using this wonderful process since. He also shares his passion for teaching mindfulness techniques, and is a long time Vipassana meditator and qualified yoga instructor.

 

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.
