Haven't experienced NVC before? Why not schedule a session to gauge the power and impact Nonviolent Communication can have with yourself and your life. Details below.

I found Compassionate Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to be a really powerful tool for connecting back with myself and with what is actually happening. I found that it takes me back directly into my experience and allows me to come into the clarity, simplicity and 'truth' that I've been seeking for some time when trying to work through tangled situations, feelings etc. I realised how much I've been dealing with things in my mind going all the time into the mind - and not connected with what I am actually feeling - which is the entry to seeing what is actually happening - and truth. I also enjoyed and felt completely comfortable in your facilitation Alistair. I wanted to try NVC with you because I know you have a complete commitment to truth and would not try to push ideas or views onto anyone. I also found that you (Alistair) were completely confident and fluent in the application of NVC and I found your input really valuable.
