Relationships, Family, Work.. Living with ourselves and with others is not always easy. Do you find yourself arguing with your partner about little things or feeling constantly helpless about being a parent or connecting with your parents, or feeling like nobody will ever be able to understand you?

A compassionate and honest relationship with ourselves helps us to obtain balance and joy in our lives. And yet listening to and communicating our deeper needs in an authentic, compassionate way is something our current culture and society does not teach us.

What participants say: 

"I studied intermediate NVC with Emma and found it so fulfilling and useful. Emma teaches in such a way that the training becomes deep and brings insights immediately. I found the nvc tools so helpful for understanding unhelpful patterns that were holding me back and giving me clear and practical ways of communicating my needs to other people in a way that builds connections, rather than causing conflict. It helped me understand old relationship dynamics and patterns and to learn how to approach them more skillfully.

Emma is such a skilled facilitator and she was able to teach and hold space with sensitivity and helped to create clarity."

- Nicky Moran - Intermediate Course Feb 2023

What will I learn?

The practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers simple but extremely powerful tools , to better understand ourselves and each other and to find solutions that work for everyone through observation, compassion and honesty.

In this intermediate course, we will examine:

❀ The beauty of Anger (The Dilemma of Honesty: 

peeling the onion toward layers of authenticity/vulnerability) How to love it when I am triggered and seeing the purpose of anger (≠ trying to NOT be angry or triggered). Going down the layers of vulnerability, peeling myself like an onion. How to enlarge the chances that our honest expression will be received as a gift, rather than as a threat, blame, demand or criticism. 

❀ Street Giraffe: Deepening Empathic Skills 

How to make ‘Empathic listening’ be more fluent, natural sounding and accessible to all people? ❀ Liberating from Guilt As an under current, Guilt is running our life- it runs as a deep motivation behind many of our choices and behavior. Liberating from guilt is to get clear about the mechanism behind guilt, and free us into a choice that includes all our needs. 

❀ Going beyond (under) opinions How not to get stuck when our opinions differ?

 How to create connection and cooperation even when we think very differently 

❀ Juicing the Needs (The Beauty of the Needs)

 Changing our own relation to our (and others) needs- connecting to the power within us to create the life we want to live. How to see the beauty of the need in me and in the other, instead of seeing needs as a burden or as a threat? 1 Intermediate Course_Course content 

❀ Expressing NO with an open heart Diving into the most meaningful moment in a dialogue- the ‘NO’. 

Understanding the dynamics, and practice skills in transforming conflict into connection and cooperation that supports both of us to be fully ourselves. 

❀ The Art of Celebration & Mourning: 

What ‘Mourning’ really is? And how to do it? What ‘Celebration’ Really is? And how to do it?

❀ And More...


In a closed group, in a safe environment, we will practice the NVC method through demonstrations, role-plays and exercises. You will be invited to work with real-life examples from your life for an interactive experience and a real integration of NVC philosophy and skills into everyday life.

How Much do I pay?

I use a sliding scale system in order to make this course inclusive and acessible to people from different financial circustances to attend. I also like that money is given to me as a form of gratitude for the work that we do together as it supports me to receive it more joyfully. 

So I ask that you choose an amount between £250-450 which takes into account, my time and expereince and yet also feel comfortable for you to offer. If this system is confusing and you prefer to be given an amount you can follow the guidline bellow:

£250 - low / no income 

£350- Regular income

£450 - Comfortable income and supporting others on a low income (the extra amount you offer will make this course available to up to 2 x people who will receive a subsudised ticket and may not have been able to attend otherwise.) 

You can also choose to pay a deposit of £75 now and the remainder at the end of the course OR pay the full amount now. 

The course will run with a minimum of 8 participants, if this number is not reached you will be refunded or the course will postponed.
