“I arrived at the workshop feeling angry and hurt, I had an unresolved situation that had been troubling me for a few days. During the workshop, I connected with how I truly felt and what my needs were around this situation, and received empathy. When I left, I was ready to communicate with the person involved and express my needs. Although I did not use “perfect” NVC language, the person responded and I felt hugely relieved and able to let go of the situation.”

Claudia Micelli

“I’m writing to show my appreciation and gratitude. Nic is a spiritual guide, a conscientious and natural leader, with a heart as big as the world. A course worth the time and effort. Visionary and couldn’t ask for a better teacher.”

Donna Charlton, Director at Charlton PPMS

“Working with Sarah is extremely empowering. I feel very seen, heard and understood. I gain so much clarity, in our sessions together, from her insights and empathy and perspective. She has a gift for teaching and sharing this wisdom which she embodies. I learn so much from her each time. I am grateful that I feel less and less afraid of conflict situations. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! I am FOREVER changed.”

Jacqueline du Plessis

“This is one training that will be useful for not only at work but for the rest of my life, this has had a very positive impact on me and has shown me how vulnerable I am, as I have always thought that I was a “tough cookie”! I know this will help me a lot with dealing with my communication with others effectively. I hope you realise what great impact you have made in others’ lives.”
