Welcome to EYC

Sarah Sims Williams started Escape Your Chains in Pembrokeshire, West Wales to support people to get more of what they enjoy, such as love, compassion, peace, adventure, fulfillment. Do you want more of something (and want less of something else)?

When there’s a difference or disagreement, do you find one option that works best for you and get disillusioned because you cannot think of other options that will work for both parties? 💜 Learn how to use needs-consciousness to create brilliant solutions.

We like to work with people who love outdoor fun, care about the environment, and are creative in their thinking. Sometimes the fun is interrupted by getting a bit stuck somewhere – either in a disagreement or within yourself.

Use Nonviolent Communication to create awesome solutions to move forward with life.Book a call with Sarah Sims Williams to see if EYC are a good fit for where you want to get to.

“I LOVED IT. Our session made me reflect on how hard I’ve been pushing myself and opened up a small soft place.”

“I quickly learnt I could completely trust Sarah“


What we offer involves slowing down and offering a deep empathetic understanding of each person, with the aim of creating a change for you. We really want to “get” you. Marshall Rosenberg, founder of NVC (CNVC.org) borrowed active listening skills from counselling, particularly person-centred counselling “Father” Carl Rogers. We often focus on communication & conflict transformation, within the person (which improves communication with others).

Through questions & dialogues, deep listening, compassion and acceptance we help you build trust & open up. Our aim is to get to the essence of what you want some change or recovery around.


“When we feel we are being understood, when someone else gets us, it feels like nourishment and attention and care for dry, neglected plants that finally receive what we need. Resonant attention and language change the way we see ourselves. With new eyes, we begin to transform our experiences of shame, rage, horror, and doubt into an experience that we are enough, just as we are.” Sarah Peyton, Neuro Educator & NVC Trainer

You will gain understanding & become clearer, for yourself, about what will uniquely give you more happiness. For some this is very healing. We create acceptance for you just as you are – most people are surprised how supportive that is. Like a wonderful massage but for your emotions and nervous system.

“It was so wonderful… for the space to be held so preciously, lightly, gently and powerfully. I left feeling super nourished and a lot lighter and so much more hopeful. Thank you for the gift of what you offer and the way in which you share it.“

  1. Thank you Sarah for a wonderful first meeting with our group, your help was very beneficial to what on paper would appear a simple dilemma but in reality drew in so very many complex issues. I look forward to our next meeting. Allison

    1. Hi Alison, I really enjoyed it. I am so inspired by your project, and by you all – the different threads and skills all of you hold. I can’t wait to go back and support you all some more. What you’re providing for the children is close to my heart. Feel free to name your project on here and say something about it, to spread the word, if you wish. Maybe we can write a post about it sometime too. Xx
