Conflict Resolution Practice Group

When people are learning #NVC they often enjoy practicing the skills – like you do when you learn any language. This promotes emotional literacy, increases self connection, and deepens connections with others. I facilitate an #NVC Practice Group every other Wednesday evening and it is not only a place to practice the skills but also the group supports us in our everyday lives.

It lasts around 2.5 hours and is held in Crosswell between Crymych and Newport and starts at 6.45 pm to get a drink and be ready to start at 7 pm.

If you are interested in joining us please check out Escape Your Chains on Facebook or contact me to receive a reminder email before each group. It’s free for your first session – donations welcome. The group does become a closed group from time to time, however it is currently open to new members. Let me know you are coming.

Dates: see below

If Wednesday doesn’t work for you, and we have 8 or more people committed for another day, then I am happy to facilitate another one. Put a note below here and/or on Facebook to see if anyone is interested in a different day. You can check out the resources page to see what options there are on the internet for learning and practising in your own home. If you are in another part of the country or want to see what else is in this area, nip over to

Pricing Structure

I want to be offering this and my other work free, and be supported by those to whom I contribute, or by others who love what I am doing. I am asking for people to ask themselves what value they get out of my work. Until there is a good flow of money to support me to live a reasonble life, I am asking for the contributions below.

I want to encourage commitment to practicing and also make my life easier. To do this you can pay for a block of 6 consecutive sessions and get it cheaper:

Pricing is currently on a sliding scale. Please try to balance your needs with contributing to mine.

£12 (£11 down to £10 sliding scale) per drop in session.

£60 (down to £50, sliding scale) for 6 consecutive weeks. Please pay as much as you can whilst looking after yourself. This would be paid in the first week and be non-refundable. You might want to compare the value of this to other body or mind skill groups eg yoga.

If you can afford more you can contribute to someone who is struggling to pay.

Advantages of buying a block:

A more cohesive group will form.

You may motivate yourself more by making a commitment up front.

I structure learning in blocks, increasing everyone’s understanding and skills over the 6 weeks. I have noticed how quickly new people are learning compared to the old system.

On the 6th week we can recap what we have learnt and what we still want to practice or learn in the next block if people want this.

I am quite excited how well this new structure is working, and how much fun we are having! I would like to hear what you think.


Practice Group is held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, except around Christmas, and on the odd occassion. The best way to keep in touch about when the next group is, is to sign up on the email list and tick the box next to practice group.

  1. Hi Sarah
    I fully appreciate your reasons for doing this, I think it may persuade more people to make a commitment, and like the idea of reviewing what we’ve learnt.
    Because I am away a lot with my Mum, it’s highly unlikely that I would be able to commit to an 8-week job lot – in fact I have looked at the dates, and I already know I will be away for 2 of these, and there may be Syrian Refugee meetings on others. I am committed to coming to as many as I can, but have lots of other things going on, as you know.
    I think the financial incentive to commit to the whole set of 8 works much more for people paying less – there is more of a difference compared to paying one week at a time – £6.86 compared to £9, as opposed to £9.38 against £10.

    1. Hi Jan,
      thanks so much for taking the time to look at this and respond! I am unclear what your request might be. I think you are saying that those choosing to pay at the lower rate will get a better deal than those paying at the higher rate? Also that you are committed to coming to as many sessions as you can, and your Mum and the refugies will be coming first? Could you spell out a request for me, so I can see what I can do? thanks! xx
