This 5-week course–ideally mixed with private sessions–is designed for up to 8 couples and takes place in the center of Amsterdam.

It is for you and your partner if you both wish to learn & practice new communication skills that bring deeper understanding, compassion and connection (also with other people in your life).

NVC is widely used all around the globe as a tool for personal development, conflict resolution, mediation, coaching, training, and relationship counseling. It is also successfully used in organizations, businesses, politics, prisons, schools, couples, parents and families.

– listen more deeply for understanding & clarity
– deal with emotions in a connecting way
– make requests (as opposed to demands)
– reach meaningful win-win agreements
– say and hear a “no”
– express and receive appreciation
