I feel very fortunate to be working here at Lushington, all of my colleagues are passionate about what they do.

Harish Davda
Enneagram Practitioner

Harish Davda BA (Hon), MBA (Open), Cert. Ed.
Enneagram Practitioner

Harish Davda Accredited Enneagram Practitioner, Certified NLP Practitioner.

Harish has been working for himself for over 20 years delivering training and consulting on Personal and Organisational Development in the UK and internationally. Over the past three years he has been offering Enneagram consultations and coaching to individuals and teams in SMEs and large organisations with amazing results.

Enneagram is a personality typology based on wisdom developed in a number of traditions at least few hundred years ago. It enables Harish’s clients to examine their patterns some of which may be causing obstacles in their relationship in their personal life and in work or business situations. By understanding their personality structure and associated patterns, clients are able to create healthy choices and eventually break unhealthy patterns.

To accelerate client's progress and save coaching/consultation time, Harish uses appropriate tests offered by a specialist Enneagram company.

Enneagram can be successfully used in many areas including:

Relationship issues
Weight management and healthy eating habits
Making decisions
Solving problems
Becoming more creative (start painting or writing, your unfulfilled ambition!)
Achieving potential in personal life and at work or in business.

The ultimate aim of Enneagram typology is to be in touch with our consciousness or essence and be guided by it in our daily living. We then become authentic and do not act on our unhealthy patterns and fixations. We become liberated. It is a long and challenging process. However, when the results happen, they are cumulative and life changing.

Harish will work with you and be a resource in enabling you to achieve your goals whatever they are. He is also planning Workshops in Eastbourne, London, and Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Harish is available to have an informal chat on how you can benefit from Enneagram sessions. You can reach him on 07802 485 608 or send him an e-mail: harish.davda@hotmail.co.uk

Comments from some of the recent clients:

Harish is an intuitive and knowledgeable coach. His coaching style is personal and warm. I felt very nurtured and understood. He uses Enneagram test that is the only test that accurately and in great detail shows you what your type is. Harish is a wiz in combining different tools including the Enneagram to help me get in touch with my anger and other emotions that were blocking me to move forward. Harish is a delight to work with. I always looked forward to our conversations.

Judy
Clinic Assistant

Hello My Name is Judy, I am a clinic assistant at Lushington Chiropractic Amazingly I have now been at Lushington Chiropractic for 10 months, the time has gone so quickly! I have been so far out of my comfort zone so many times now I don't think I have one anymore! Lushington Chiropractic Clinic is such an amazing team of people you would feel pretty silly saying "sorry I don't think I can do that" you just do it and then afterwards you think, ok, that wasn't so bad!

It has been fascinating learning about Chiropractic and I hope to continue to learn more, In my short time at the clinic I have seen several people arrive at the clinic barely able to move due to the pain and even after the first visit they tell me as they are paying how much better they feel! I have also started to have Chiropractic treatment myself for a painful shoulder and I have been amazed by the results and what I have learnt about my own body. I have also learnt about Health & safety on a 1 day course recently and it was actually really interesting...who knew!! Although I kind of 'fell' into this job I couldn't be more happy that I answered the advert in the local paper, it just goes to show that you never know what is just around the corner that might be bigger and better than you imagined.
