When cultivating, living and applying NVC consciousness, it may shift any kind of human relationship to a more satisfactory and enriching experience for everybody involved. I believe that relationships based upon giving and receiving from the heart bring inner peace to people and the planet.

Wherever human beings meet – in families, kindergardens, schools, work places, in organisations, institutions and politics – NVC, which promotes a compassionate language of the heart, may prevent and resolve conflicts and create the space for mutual respect and appreciation even in difficult situations.

“Understanding without pressure leads to resolution.”

Emphasis on NVC and Burn-Out

Am I concerned about being affected by burn-out?

What does “burn-out” mean for me?

What feelings and needs are underlying the symptom of burn-out?

How can NVC help me prevent being affected by burn-out or regain my power after a burn-out?

Emphasis on “Words of love” in partner-relationships

How can I love my partner and be true to my own needs at the same time?

How can I happily sail through conflicts?

How can I express myself honestly without hurting the other?

I would like us to get on better!

I would like to separate …

Maybe you would like to explore those or similar issues ?
