Cate has been a facilitator of communication courses for over 20 years. Her workshops and training is offered in a variety of settings: from corporate training, parenting workshops in community centres, university, to in-service training in the social services sector. Cate also offers personal or private sessions in deep empathy, working with couples, individuals wanting to deepen the NVC process for personal healing, reconciliation and mediation. As the mother of three young adult women, with whom she has close connected relationships; Cate enjoys opportunities to work with her daughters assisting in her workshops. Since, 2001, Cate has been learning and practicing Nonviolent Communication skills in both her personal and professional life, as she is committed to fully living the process. Being inspired to share this powerful yet natural model with others, Cate is a Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) certified trainer of Compassionate or Nonviolent Communication. Working in a gentle and empowered experiential style, Cate invites participants to work with examples from their own lives. Her workshops and private work involve a balance of support as well as challenge that people say they find both stimulating and enjoyable!
