Suzanne Dion

Enneagram Teacher, Coach, and Author

Suzanne is co-author of the book, The Enneagram, Relationships, and Intimacy: Understanding One Another Leads to Loving Better and Living More Fully with her mentor David Daniels, M.D., a book that marries the wisdom of the Enneagram and David Daniels' years of experience with Dr. Dan Siegel's Mindful Awareness, attachment research, and interpersonal neurobiology. Her focus, as she carries David’s compassionate approach forward, is the bettering of human relationships through intrapersonal healing first, followed by the development of cognitive-emotional-somatic capacity and emotional literacy, defense system relaxation, and deepening intimacy — with both self and other.


Now a teacher, transformational coach, and educator of the Enneagram system for personal and professional self-awareness, Suzanne is Enneagram Consultant to the Deep Coaching Institute,. Creative Director for Marion Gilbert's new and forming Somatic Enneagram training school, and one of the founders of newly formed T.A.P.P., The Attuned Parent Program — Parenting to Heal the World.

Suzanne completed her teacher certification with the Palmer-Daniels Enneagram Professional Training School, now called The Narrative Enneagram (TNE), in 2008, completed the Advanced Coaching 2.0 program with The Enneagram in Business, designed by Ginger Lapid-Bodga, and is currently training with Life-centered Therapy, designed and developed by Dr. Andy Hahn.

Suzanne was one of the founding board members of the Enneagram Prison Project and spent several years developing course content and curriculum, and teaching a trauma-informed, addictions-informed Enneagram to both incarcerated men and women in Northern California jails and San Quentin State Prison.

Suzanne is an Enneagram-informed transformational coach that works with individuals, couples, teens, and families.
