Personal Growth Counseling Rediscovering Self

Personal growth counseling utilizing the Enneagram, offers a unique and effective tool for personal growth. When an infant experiences a feeling, it's expressed throughout his entire organism. Whether the experience is joy or unhappiness, every particle of the infant's being participates in the expression; there's no holding back.

For most infants, the home environment has a thick psychological energy that is primarily generated from the parents. So if the parents are experiencing feelings that limit their nurturing capacity, the natural result is that the child suffers.

Increasingly, as the child develops with the imposed nurturing limits and a moratorium on the expression of feelings, the distortions of personality are born. The matter becomes more complicated as most individuals attract other people who will behave as their parents did -- in order to work through what they weren't able to work through with their family -- which is natures way of attempting to integrate wholeness.

Whole Person Integration

In personal growth counseling you have permission to be yourself, but when you don't know who you are it's a little difficult to accomplish. An important part of effective counseling is to identify all of the parts that make up the whole person that you are. Many if not most people are lost in the psychological jungle, trying to make sense out of feelings whose context feels vague, and when that gets mixed with the multiple messages and voices we hear in our minds, it's like trying to untangle a warehouse filled with knotted rope - where do you begin? The good news - enlisting the aid of a skillful counselor will accelerate the untangling process. in fact, some of the things that feel tangled really aren't tangled at all.

With the Enneagram, the underlying motivations are clearly known in the first session, and thereby progress can be achieved with fewer sessions.
