Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating with empathy, integrity, clarity and compassion. It enables honest expression, understanding of what is important to others and finding solutions that care for the needs of everyone. NVC is a set of simple learnable steps underpinned by a way of thinking that enables people to communicate in ways that are powerful yet compassionate.
If you want to improve your relationship with loved ones, work colleagues, your community, or yourself, then this course could be for you.

The price for this course is £150. Receiving this amount supports me to be sustainable and to keep doing the work of sharing Nonviolent Communication. At the same time I know that for some people paying £150 makes the course unaffordable and I want NVC to be accessible to everyone. If you would like to discuss paying a different amount, you can choose to pay the deposit only and email me firstname.lastname@example.org so we can agree something that meets everyone's needs.
