A Little about Me

Hello all you wonderful enneagram 9 people!

My name is Heather Fillmore. I live in Utah with my husband, our 6 youngest kids (there are 9!) 2 dogs and 6 chickens!

Our last 4 kiddos joined us via international adoption between 2011 and 2016. Two girls from Russia (who have Down syndrome) and two boys from China. I have a soft place in my heart for children who don’t have families of their own and I always dreamed of adopting, since I was 7 or 8 years old. So it was a dream come true to grow our family this way.
 
As you know, we Nines like our peace and predictability. And In the first few years during and after our adoptions, we had very few moments of either. This quickly became very challenging for me and I became anxious and depressed and I hated the stressed out mom that I had become. I dreamed of a “normal,” peaceful life.
 
In 2018, everything started feeling much better for me. And it wasn’t because my kids suddenly changed or I had learned some amazing parenting techniques or found a magic pill. I had discovered life coaching and joined a group coaching program. I learned about a model that helped me to see how my thoughts were ultimately creating results, and how I didn’t have to believe everything that my brain was offering me. My coach helped me to start seeing my blind spots, through the coaching of others, funny enough. And I started seeing myself differently and trusting myself much more. I just felt so much better.
 
After experiencing this transformation, I suddenly had a desire to help others feel better, too. So in 2019, I went through a year of training at The Lifecoach School. It was an indescribable experience.
 
About a year later, I learned about the Enneagram. I figured out that I’m a Type Nine.  No wonder why I wanted to hide from away from conflict! Knowing my core beliefs and fears, and what naturally motivates me or shuts me down helps me to extend compassion to myself, which is so needed for my healing. It also helps me to catch myself when I find myself disengaging from important interactions and remind myself that I’m safe.
 
Because our thoughts only paint part of the picture when we’re trying to change our old habits, I added Somatic Coaching to my toolbelt. Last year, I went through training at The Strozzi Institute of Somatics to learn how to help my clients transform, not just through thinking differenly, but through the rest of the body.
 
Now, I help my clients to grow in their confidence and intentionality through both the mind and the body. I get what it’s like to have Type 9 conditioning…AND I can also hold space for them and help them to see exactly what is keeping them stuck.
