What is ‘NVC’?

NVC stands for Nonviolent Communication. It’s a form of mindful, compassionate communication that embodies authenticity. Having studied and practised NVC for over a decade (and still learning!) I have witnessed its transformational power in relationships – both professionally and personally. NVC enables us to communicate and relate with radical honesty in ways which honour each other, our values and needs. Its principles underpin all my work.

NVC is about being ‘real’ – it’s not about being ‘right’ or trying to say things to please or having an agenda to get what you want. It’s about being confident, alert and understanding so you can say what you mean and respond to situations in ways which are empathic and honour your own values. It’s also about being able to choose when NOT to express yourself!

Nonviolent communication expands self-awareness as well as your awareness of others. It can enrich life.

Who created NVC?

Nonviolent Communication was created in the early 1960’s, by the remarkable mediator, teacher and psychologist Dr Marshall Rosenberg. His simple yet profound principles for establishing nonviolent communication have been applied across the world increasingly ever since. NVC is practiced in every arena of life – in schools, prisons, between political factions, in families, enterprises, between partners, families, and friends.

My journey with NVC

My journey with NVC started in 2005 with a day’s foundation training with its creator of NVC Dr. Marshall Rosenberg. I was inspired by his message and his presence and immediately enrolled on further in-depth training with Marshall in the UK and then in Switzerland. I continued to attend courses, retreats, and camps in France, Greece, Sweden, and across the UK.

I became an independently recognised UK trainer in 2013 and was Certified by the International Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) in 2016.

(CNVC, is the global organisation founded by Marshall Rosenberg to support the learning and sharing of NVC for personal healing, peaceful and effective dialogue, collaboration in organisations and social justice).

Twenty years of absorbing, embodying, and allowing ‘NVC consciousness’ to deepen in me – a process I am still enjoying!

I work with individuals; organisations and offer public training, conscious wellbeing retreats, and one to one coaching . I serve the NVC network through my involvement in many groups and as a director of NVC UK Matters CIC, working with a team to manage the NVC UK website.
