“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” - Aristotle
“This was a fun and fulfilling exploration. The day was an amazing opportunity to have greater understanding of others, through learning of Enneagram personality types. I will use my new awareness of my Enneagram personality type as a gauge for growth opportunities. “The Octagon” venue was peaceful, stylish and amazing and I enjoyed Louise’s facilitation, which was very professional, fun and playful. With her wisdom and presence, she held a beautiful place for us to explore.”
Ben Jennings, Enneagram Type 8
A One day Retreat Journey woven with nurturing flow yoga, healing yin yoga, developmental coaching, facilitated conversation, Enneagram experiential workshops, meditation, pranayama, nature immersion and relaxation.
Begin your journey to Freedom on this one day reflective and awakening retreat to explore yourself and free yourself using the wisdom of the Enneagram.
The Enneagram is a map of human nature experienced through nine distinct personality types that describe how we think, feel, act and how we stand in relation with the world and others.
Are you intrigued to explore why you think and act in certain ways?
How you show up in relation with others and the world around you?
When fear and anxiety seek to overwhelm you, do you understand why?
Do you ever ask yourself ‘who am I’? Well, who is this sense of self that you take yourself to be?
Would you like some answers?
Are you ready to EXPLORE yourself?
And at the same time, to FREE yourself?
Join me for "Explore yourself and Free yourself" One day Enneagram retreat.
“I'd describe the Enneagram day as a world of discovery that is beneficial to personal growth and expansion. I'm taking away from today an expanded awareness and greater understanding of self.
I now have a new navigation tool for relating and a real opportunity for self-acceptance. The venue was amazing and I absolutely loved Louise's facilitation style.”
Cine Holland 'Explore Yourself & Free Yourself' 2022 attendee
"Life changing - is how I would describe the One Day Enneagram Retreat 'Explore yourself & Free yourself.

"The a beautiful combination of mind-body awareness and personal growth. An opportunity to reflect on myself, giving me a deeper understanding of my enneagram type and how I relate in the world. I realized that it’s ok for the world to see me as accomplished and achieving".
Angela Farrell - 'Explore Yourself & Free Yourself' 2020 attendee
"Thank you for a beautifully and skilfully facilitated day, full of calm reflection, challenging insights and wonderful epiphanies. All wrapped up in a beautiful hug of meditation, yin yoga, essential oils and kind, respectful non judgmental participants who shared so openly and honestly. The day has been a gentle walk into me. I discovered hidden parts of myself without judgement. I learnt so much about other types of people and their personalities. I will now be able to say 'no' instead of 'yes' and will be able to face conflict. Thank you all for a fabulous day."

"I am now aware of the hidden aspects of my personality. The more aware I become of myself, the more I grow. 'Explore yourself and Free yourself' retreat was a journey into self and others to learn and embrace how to be our authentic selves. I learnt how to work on my strengths and turn my weaknesses into strengths. The day retreat showed me how to see these qualities in others and how to communicate with others effectively. I now see that we're all not very different, and that we're all experiencing a battle inside, so kindness is key."

"Louise is very intuitive coach and a fantastic listener. I felt nurtured and encouraged the entire program. I am now calmer, softer, at ease. & enjoying life more. I'm very conscious of my thoughts and now able to change them. I've let go the need to control & have certainty. I'm so much more relaxed & have found great joy in going with the flow of life. I now know that I'm the author of my reality. I choose how I feel and what I do. Everything is a choice. This has been a very liberating realisation. .” Brooke Duncan
"Coaching with Louise was Phenomenal!!! I cannot emphasise that enough. Louise made me feel safe & pushed me to look at myself in ways that I was resistant to. She made me “sit in my stuff” and get comfortable in doing so. When I started the coaching journey, I was closed off, sad and negative. I now feel confident with who I am, & no longer feel the need to put on a mask. I cannot thank Louise enough for what I got out of coaching with her. She took me places I would not have felt safe to go on my own." Michayla Simpson
"After hiring Louise as my coach I am calmer, softer and more at ease. I’m enjoying life and not taking it so seriously. I am very conscious of my thoughts and because of this I am now able to change them. I have let go of the need to control and have certainty. I am so much more relaxed and have found great joy in going with the flow of life and having faith that my journey is taking me exactly where I need to go.
What I have learnt about myself during the coaching, is that I am the author of my reality. I choose how I feel and what I do. Everything is a choice. This has been a very liberating realisation. As a coach, Louise is very intuitive and a fantastic listener. I felt nurtured and encouraged the entire program.”Brooke Duncan“Yoga with Louise is simply wonderful! Following the class I felt incredible, so balanced, calm and full of bliss. I love Louise’s approach to teaching; it is the perfect flow of strength and inner connection – guided by her voice which is so calming!"Carly Grace
