Nonviolent Communication fundamentally changes what’s going on by changing how people see, think and communication about what’s important. It can be used for your whole life; learning to use it to communicate in connecting and compassionate way, is only the beginning.
Sarah I really loved our day together. Such fascinating stuff. Very much enjoyed your delivery and the general relaxed atmosphere, the fluid way you edited the content as the conversation evolved so as to maximize benefit and personalise it to our needs. Loved the learning, the heart level communication, the shared reality around how we want to show up. Everyone was very enthusiastic about the day. More please!Ben James, Co-founder, The Lighthouse Project
NVC will change your reactions. Sometimes you simply will not have the reaction you used to have, other times you will have the reaction but you can use NVC to reduce the time it takes you to re-regulate & get back to your happier self.
NVC has changed my normal to something that becomes more wonderful more often the more I use NVC as a practice in my life. Learning the skills of Nonviolent Communication, first through a Foundation Training, and then onto Intermediate Trainings and IIT’s gives people a big boost. Also using all the free and cheap resources available on-line and putting your own course together, can get you a long way. Some of those resources are on the links page. Used in organisations, means the people on your team have similar reference points & attitude.
How do we train with you?
I mostly provide training for organisations – please contact me if your organisation is wanting more inclusivity and collaboration with heart. If you are not part of an organisation, you can get together with some other people who want to use NVC in their lives and find some dates you can all do, then contact me and arrange a training.
What trainings can we have?
A Foundation Training is a 2 or 3 day course. The first 2 days are an initial training. The third day is for practicing. One of the essential parts of NVC is separating out parts of negotiations and conversations that usually are all mixted together. Undoing a life time’s habit re-inforced by society, re-learning the language you were born with, takes practice.
Sometimes we offer trainings based on a specific requirement. This is not a full training. For Extinction Rebellion we offer De-escalation Training (a day long). For Anger Management we offer a 10 week evening course with an essential home study element. There are also opportunities to learn on-line. You can do interactive courses or pay about £10/month to NVC Academy to access their library of recorded courses with popular trainers. This is remarkable value in my opinion.
EYC also runs an NVC Practice Group. You can sign up here for NVC Practice emails. Practice Group is a place to practice your skills. It is open to people who haven’t completed a Foundation Training – if you have done some home study before coming that is a huge advantage. See more under Practice Group and sign up for emails to receive notifications and that week’s topic. You can also sign up for other emails via that link.
At EYC we are open to anything, so please feel free to contact us by email or phone and have a free chat with Sarah 07733045484
