What is ‘NVC’?

NVC stands for Nonviolent Communication. It’s a form of mindful communication which 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 practised in every arena of life – in schools, prisons, between political factions, in families, enterprises, between partners, families and friends.

My own journey with NVC

My journey with NVC started in 2005 with a day’s introduction. It was a progressive in-depth training in the UK,  Switzerland, France and in Greece before I became an independently recognised UK trainer in 2013 and certified by the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) internationally in 2016. Ten years of absorbing, embodying and allowing ‘NVC consciousness’ to deepen in me – a process I am still enjoying!

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

I offer training, webinars, conscious wellbeing retreats and one to one coaching and serve the NVC network through my involvement in many groups, the NVC London Intermediate training and work with NVC UK website.

Everyone knows that peace has to begin with oneself, but not many people know how to do it
