LIFE SUPPORT SESSIONS

INDIVIDUAL 

NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION COACHING AND SUPPORT

Perhaps you would like a space, one to one, where you can just be yourself?  Where whatever life rises in you is given room to breathe and show itself.  Where the life in you is met with compassionate presence and gentleness, and to have an opportunity to grow capacity to hear others this way also?

I have a sense of trust that with enough spaciousness and warmth, the life energy held in our longings finds expression and that our life's direction becomes clear from the courage to just allow what arises. 

 

My role in these one to one's is to support the translation and transformation of life-alienating thinking into our precious life force which is captured through identifying feelings and needs using the practices and principles of Nonviolent Communication and to support the growth of our compassionate self-witness.​​

I offer a 30 minute free taster session so that you can see if working with me is something that would contribute to you.

COUPLES

NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION COACHING AND SUPPORT

Perhaps you would like support to cultivate the capacity to hear each other more fully and to respond to each other's needs in a way that works for both of you? Using the seeds of resonance through NVC practices, blending rhythms of hearts and minds in shared knowing, being and doing. 

 

  • Where compassionate giving and receiving become possible

  • Where you can grow the skills to stay in connection with your partner during difficult conversations

  • Maybe get to know each other, more fully,what's alive for you both, what your hopes and dreams are and to explore the practicalities of supporting each other to make things happen

My role in these support sessions is to facilitate dialogue through empathic presence, to support the translation and transformation of life-alienating thinking into our precious life force which is captured through identifying feelings and needs (the foundation of NVC). To establish a pace of communication that provides room for a new way of connecting with each other, a way of connecting that is innate but has long been lost in our culture.

I have experience of individual and group sessions. I started with one-to-one sessions. I was keen to join the group offerings but needed more safety around what to expect and how my vulnerability would be met. I soon understood from being with Clare that groups facilitated by her style would hold me. I have found previously that even groups with the best intentions can have communication styles that are challenging. Clare facilitates at a pace and style that is compassionate and clear. 

Clare manages to welcome all feelings and expressions brought to her, helping me to understand the needs behind my actions or responses. It has been supportive to have the freedom to be with what is alive in me and know it can be met.

My understanding of NVC has grown and I really welcome what I have learnt. All sessions have included a variety of 'tools' or approaches to support the practice of NVC. They have all encouraged me and brought hope to how I might understand myself and others. The work is very rich. It feels simple but with the power to bring about so much change. I have felt shifts in how I relate to situations through exploring what I need, this has brought me relief.
