ESI Certificate Course

Stage One Mapping ESI

This is an educational workshop using evidence based practices to teach you how to map the ego states of one’s personality. You will learn the skills of creating a map of ego states; how to unpack associated behaviours and decipher the inhibitive from the supportive. The ESI Mapping Tool is solution focused and goal directed and easy to learn in just one day!

Course Overview:

ESI™ (Executive State Identification) is a Mapping Tool developed from ego state personality theory. It has evolved from the work of Freud and Federn, making its way into the current day counselling and coaching environments. By attending you will learn how to map the many different parts of your clients, states that are both supportive and inhibitive. Once you identify these states you and they are in a better position to identify exactly ‘what’ needs to change. You will have a map that will provide direction!

Clients will become clear as together you map out their strengths and they find ways to become unstuck and finally get to the bottom of issues.

The theory behind ESI™ is cutting edge psycho-dynamic. It has been developed and trialled in Australia by Jan Sky and received international recognition as breakthrough theory on ego states. Scientific evidence shows that these states are embedded in the neural pathways of the brain. ESI™ is a powerful tool that motivates positive behaviour and is as relevant in the workplace as in everyday life.

Who should attend? Coaches, Counsellors, HR Managers, School Counsellors, Psychologists, Psychotherapists
