Exploring stress and trauma and its relationship to NVC 

On this weekend 2 session course we will explore stress and trauma and its relationship to NVC. The training will include a mixture of theory and carefully supported practice. You will be given some somatic practices to support you to restore to equilibrium during moments of activation. 

We will:

  • Explore some current theories and models of stress and trauma
  • Bring awareness to our stress and trauma responses and how they impact our capacity to stay empathic and relational (in NVC consciousness)
  • Explore key needs that relate to trauma
  • Learn some simple techniques and practices for restoring equilibrium, during moments of our own activation 
  • Understand how to accompany others when they are triggered into a stress or trauma response

The focus of this workshop is on supporting our awareness of trauma and its relationship to NVC, rather than on trauma healing.

You will be invited to share some of your personal life situations, for the purpose of learning and practicing NVC. It is important that you take some time to consider which experiences you feel open and safe to share, prior to joining.

If there is anything of a personal nature that you would like the trainers to be aware of prior to joining, please contact Tracy or Daren via email

This is what some participants shared with us:

“I gained valuable insight on how to deal with others’ as well as my own trauma and I especially valued the sense of care, safety and the positive attitude that permeated the training.” Italy

“Daren and Tracy facilitated a great course – I feel much more aware of my own responses to trauma and now have very helpful NVC ways of responding better in future.” Jo, UK

This day is led by Tracy Seed and Daren De Witt

What is the NVC Intermediate Training Programme?

This training is part of an Intermediate programme which hosts 12 trainings across the course of a year, approx 6 hours per month. Each training stands alone.

To find a list of the other trainings in this programme, follow this link and click on the drop-down menu: “I want to attend the Level 2 Intermediate Training Programme.”

The programme repeats annually so you can join it at any point in the year and carry through until you’ve completed all twelve trainings. If you do this you will have a comprehensive understanding and practice of key NVC processes (e.g. saying no; transforming anger) and current topics (e.g. trauma; power and privilege). This will help you resolve conflicts more easily and create deeper and more satisfying relationships in your life.

The trainings are facilitated by five London-based certified NVC trainers – Cath Burke, Ceri Buckmaster, Carolyn Davies,  Daren De Witt and Tracy Seed. We are a collaborative group working together to offer you clear learning and progression options to suit you. We are committed to creating a supportive network for those learning, living and sharing NVC both in London and globally. Many of our trainings are currently online.  We hope you will enjoy the richness of themes that this programme offers, along with the variety that comes from the individual perspective and specialism of each trainer.

This is what previous participants say:

“I completed my foundation training at the end of 2021 and, keen to maintain momentum since then, I’ve attended most of these intermediate training sessions.  Without exception, the sessions have been brilliant.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the programme that Cath, Ceri, Tracy, Daren and Carolyn are providing.  And, consequently, my NVC practice has seriously developed over this last year – at times with surprisingly amazing results.  I wholeheartedly recommend the NVC London level 2 intermediate training programme – just what I needed to build on my foundation training.” – Jo W

“I find these trainings so enriching and empowering. They have also given me the opportunity to meet people in other ways, and I am very grateful for this.” – Hannah

“All the trainings are excellent and they compliment each other very well, building a very beautiful tapestry of interwoven skills and concepts.” – Anna E

I look forward to meeting you.
