Dates and times
Nov 4th, 5th, 18th, 19th. 4 sessions 9.30am to 1.15pm GMT (2 Saturdays and 2 Sundays)
Online on Zoom including 30 minutes break each session.
A 13-hour Level 1 Foundation Training combines theory and practice to give you a solid grounding in the mindset and skills of Nonviolent Communication. It covers the 4 steps of NVC: Observations, Feelings, Needs, Requests and the 3 modes of NVC: listening with empathy, self compassion & honest expression.
You will be invited to practise with imaginary scenarios and your own examples of difficult conversations, interactions and feelings, in a safe and often fun way, through interactive activities in pairs and small groups, and sometimes reflecting individually.
Online courses are limited to 15 participants and 18 face-to-face.
“I started implementing the way of communicating immediately after the training - at least towards myself - and I can already feel the change. It’s quite incredible. Highly recommended to everyone.”
— Maria, Estonia
What skills will you learn?
Listening with empathy:
Capacity to fully take in another’s experience and perspective, however they are expressing themselves, so you enjoy the feeling of connection
Understanding the deep live-serving motivations driving what someone is saying or doing, even when you don’t like it, or don’t agree with them or they are saying ‘no’ to you
Staying grounded and open even when under attack
Understanding yourself with compassion:
Understanding your own reactivity & how to calm your nervous system in difficult moments so you can choose how to respond from an empowered place
Being naturally compassionate towards yourself so you can find compassion for others
Speaking to be heard:
Confidence to have difficult conversations that may otherwise be avoided or end badly
Clarity about what you really want and how to ask in a way you’re likely to be heard
Being honest without offending

Considering my needs
If you regularly pay for personal development, please contribute something near to what you might pay for a similar course. Or if you go on holiday regularly please consider the upper rates. Of course, sometimes you can’t or there are other needs you have which mean you don’t want to. In the case of uncertainty, please communicate with me. I really appreciate transparency around choices. However, I’m not asking anyone to justify their choices to me.

“This training gave me tools that will be immensely powerful in both my personal and professional life. Rather than dreading conflict situations, I now look at them as an opportunity to develop closer connection with others. This is a revolutionary change in perspective and has already been enormously beneficial to my mental health.”
