Transform your life by bringing a deeper level of

conscious awareness to your communication skills

There are two ways to learn NVC


  • Learn by doing, with the help of me as your coach. Your learning program can be bespoke, to suit your exact requirements, so you don’t need to sit through two days in a group training environment. As part of a tailored program, you can access my 30 short videos that walk you through the nuts and bolts. If you’d like to explore this idea, please contact me for a free 30-minute chat – see the link below. This suits some people better, or


  • Learn by attending a two-day group training. This can be a powerful way to learn, and the risk is that the learnings of the workshop can be forgotten in a month.

Benefits of Relating to Connect

  • Empowering self-connection through your body

  • The ability to deepen intimacy through your listening and reflecting

  • An honest and clear intimate relationship

  • Greater level of ease and less stress in your life

​This workshop offers a very exciting opportunity to learn something that is truly effective and will transform your relationships. I can say that with all honesty, as I have experienced it. The skills I learned in Relating to Connect have softened my hard edges, taught me how to truly connect with others, how to see the other's point of view, how to deal with day-to-day communication challenges in my relationships at a very practical level, and supported me to stand in my leadership in important moments.

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.

My experiences with Alistair, and the teachings of Non Violent Communication (NVC), have been the

answer to my search for self love, contentment and happiness. I found Alistair’s wisdom and ability to guide

and coach, empowering. I felt supported and safe at all times. With Alistair’s expert use of NVC and

his other intuitive gifts, I ventured into my experience of self enquiry. Discovering and unraveling,

(sometimes many layers), the thought patterns and beliefs I held as true, that were blocking my joy in life.

 I highly recommend embracing and immersing yourself in the teachings of NVC.

Sometimes family or work commitments make it difficult

to get to a training so we can employ the beauty

of technology that makes it easy for us to

connect, and find a time and schedule that suits you.
