Warmest Regards, 


Kathy Ziola, MA, Center for Nonviolent Communication Certified Trainer. My journey has included thirty-five years of deep exploration of relationship, self-awareness, healing arts, spirituality and communication. NVC trainer training includes Bay Area NVC’s Leadership Program in 2006, the Training of Trainer Program in 2009, Making Collaboration Real Trainings in 2010 and 2011, study with Marshall Rosenberg in 2009, and extensive work with the NVC Training Institute (Robert Gonzales, Susan Skye, Wes Taylor, Towe Widstrand) for three years. I have organized and facilitated NVC training for ten years and organized and facilitated workshops and retreats in a variety of settings over the past 25 years. These have included the areas of stress management, peer counseling training, breath work, loving relationships, women’s retreats, yoga, Reiki, and couples work. I currently provide training, coaching and psychotherapy to individuals, couples, families and businesses. It is my passion to support others in having extraordinary relationships based on presence, honesty and compassion.

Who is it for

Passionate learners who want to immerse in NVC consciousness and skills in unique ways with lots of personal attention. This group will be limited in size so you will receive the benefits of a solid group and individualized support.

This program will count toward your CNVC training requirements for certification.
