This is what some people share about the way NVC has enriched their lives.

This is what participants shared with me:

“I am so grateful for the opportunity in a session to work through a very traumatic conversation I had in my workplace which brought powerful revelation to me about myself and enabled me to connect with myself with compassion in a deeper way than I ever had done before. This has caused a seismic shift in the foundation of my identity resulting in more self-worth and self-compassion to enable me to connect deeper with empathy with those I love the most. Wow! I have been wanting to do an NVC course for a long time and this was the right time in my life when I was prepared and receptive to the incredible heart level healing it has brought me. As I continue on my NVC journey I am expectant and grateful for the increasing wholehearted connections that will flourish in my life, Lorraine, UK”

“The small group session was perfect to create a safe, open space to learn and practice NVC skills together. I have done various personal development training over the years, but for me NVC brings everything together clearly and as I apply these techniques, I can see the positive difference they make to me and others”  (Lyndsay McLean, UK)
