Name: Rezzan Huseyin
Lives in: Hertforshire, UK
From: London, United Kingdom
Occupation: I am a bit of a Renaissance woman I guess, like many of us now. The two main things that I do are I run a developmental/integral coaching practice, alongside my work as an editor of legal/compliance publications. Recently I started editing Enneagram-related content. The Enneagram has been a huge focal point for me for around 6 years, personally and professionally.
Initially, I was drawn to it as a way to understand myself and other people better. Eventually, I began integrating the Enneagram into my professional life through my developmental coaching practice. I’m drawn to both the psychological and the spiritual applications of the Enneagram. I started my podcast, the Practical Enneagram, as a way to continue to learn from other Enneagram professionals and to have conversations that I enjoy. The goal is to have conversations that are practical in nature, with people who I believe use the Enneagram in helpful ways. The intended audience is others in the healing profession – coaches, teachers, counselors, therapists. I suppose if I am honest, the real or underlying goal is to practice. I use the opportunities of interviewing people to practice three center presence, articulating myself with clarity, and stating things simply (all developmental areas for me).

What do you love about Greece? I love that it offers the promise of delights that I have yet to experience! I have never been 🙂 But it has been on my wishlist for a while, and will probably get there this year (2022). I adore Greek food and also more run-down cities. I don’t like anywhere too pristine.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: Most people don’t know what an athletic streak I have. I run every day, do a strong yoga practice and do lots of walking. I would dance every day if I could.
Another thing most people don’t know is that I’ve written a self-help book called My Own Guru published by Thought Catalog in 2018. It is a book about how to know yourself, and although I have learned a little more about that particular endeavour since then (!), I stand by everything I wrote in this book. It is sort of a compilation of many psychological and spiritual teachings.
Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? Interviewing Lynn on my podcast!
First time you tried Kundalini Yoga? You know, I wish I could remember her name. As I can’t, I will tell you who I practised with the last time – it was Kia Miller through my subscription to Glo.
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Keep it in your sights, close to you, daily/always.
Anything else you’d like us to know?: I have an Enneagram podcast, the Practical Enneagram, where I ask interesting Enneagram people loads of goofy questions.
