Many of us come to NVC looking for a way to survive, improve, enjoy our relationships. I know I did. Then I discovered that the most important relationship is the one with myself.  This is because when we relate empathically to ourselves we are empowered to calm our reactivity and take responsibility for meeting our needs. When we understand and acknowledge our needs we naturally have more inner resource to face challenging conversations and relationships ‘out there’.

This day will draw on Sarah Peyton’s research into NVC and neuroscience

60 minutes of movement and conscious dance

There’ll be an invitation to explore this theme somatically through up to 60 minutes of movement and dance.  If you’ve never tried ‘conscious’ dance before you are especially welcome. No experience is necessary - you cannot do it wrong! And all ages, body shapes and fitness levels are welcome. Any doubts or queries email or call me for a chat.

You’ll be supported to take away skills to:

  • precisely name your feelings and needs in relation to a stimulus

  • identify self-sabotaging behaviours and core beliefs

  • get familiar with different parts of your inner life, such as the critic, the self, the witness

  • find your unique empathic voice that’s able to regulate your nervous system


Participants will be expected to have completed a two day foundation training in NVC, or equivalent. This will ensure a common foundation for intermediate level engagement and practice.
