My coaching style uses mostly Shadow Work® principles and tools, as well as body-centered approaches I learned as part of the EnneaMotion facilitators training. Read Alyce Barry’s description of the difference between Life Coaching and Shadow Work® Coaching. You may come to me for one half-day session and do a really important piece
of emotional work, and we may never see each other again, but have had a profound experience together. Or you may want to set up a monthly session in person or by phone to build a stronger and stronger “container” for your work. I start my coaching process with an initial half hour session by phone for us each to determine if it is a good fit for a coaching relationship.

      Hi Mike. Thanks for your question. I can’t speak for all 8s, as everyone is unique in their life experiences, hurts, desires. But given that there are some overall trends in certain types I’ll share my thoughts. The Leader 8 needs to feel safe, know that boundaries are respected, and believe that to be open and vulnerable will serve their interest/mission. I personally do not get sweet, loving, intimate with someone if I’m worried that they have the power/desire to hurt me or distract me from my life purpose. If I do feel that being with someone is safe and right I can be very trusting, generous, and loving.

      Some 8s might have such a fear of trusting and being vulnerable that they have trouble opening up even when the other person would be good for them. Past hurts could keep them back from what they really want. Then I recommend some kind of healing work like Shadow Work to help them move through what is so scary about trusting and loving.

      Also, you have to look at the different motivations of 2s and 8s. What might seem like the right amount of loving/intimacy to you might not feel right to your partner. She may never be as affectionate as you would like her to be, and it’s important that you accept who she is and how you are different while asking for what you need cleanly and clearly. Then you can see if and how you can meet each other’s needs.

      I hope this helps!
