I come from France and I live in Vienna since more than 10 years. I discovered NVC about 5 years ago which made place for more gratitude in my life, and for an awareness of our choices: whether we interpret bad intentions in others’ actions, or we seek to understand them, and find a common path. It has also impacted my way of being a mother. I attended several introduction and deepening trainings, a mentoring program and an international intensive training in Birmingham, I am participating to a practice peer group, and I host a practice group since one year. I aim to embody NVC in my daily life, which is everything but easy, however gaining awareness and deeper connections is worth the journey.

Beata Kosiacka

Poland

CNVC trainer, life-coach. I am fascinated by personal growth and supporting others in striving for a fulfilled life based on important needs and goals. I believe that every change begins inside. I got to know Nonviolent Communication in 2008 and since then I have been trying to put into practice the theory I have learned. Watching myself, my family and the participants of my workshops, I see these tiny steps that change our way of thinking, focus on seeing the needs behind each action, make a difference. Above all, they allow us to regain a sense of freedom of choice, they help us to build honest relationships based on mutual trust and respect. I see how presence without judgment can be a great gift to another person. My favourite topic is work related to shame and courage. I work with individuals and teams combining creative thinking, empathic communication, coaching and mediation. My mission is to free people from patterns and stereotypes in order to build relationships based on authenticity and trust. I live with my family in Warsaw. I run workshops all over Poland, I also work online.

I am a trainer of emphatic communication with seven years of experience. I work at the School for Trainers of Communication Based on Empathy (Szkoła Trenerów Komunikacji Opartej na Empatii) and co-run a project called “Ripening Leaders” (Dojrzewalnia Liderek). I conduct trainings of emphatic communication and conflict management in organisations, and work with individuals. I am also a blogger and the co-author of an educational project about money entitled “I am rich” (JestemBogata.pl) in which I encourage sensitive/vulnerable people to invite money in their lives and match it with their values. I help people make money without guilt and shame, and efficiently take care of it. Before my life as a trainer, I worked in a multinational publishing house. As the Publishing Director I was responsible for the financial result for three titles, and I co-ran a PR-agency. I am the author of the book “What’s Eating Eva? How to understand each other”, and am currently working on a new one: “What About This Money? How to have an open heart and mind for money”.

Trainer, Musician, Couples- und Family Mediator, Psychotherapist. “I got to know NVC in the year 2000 at first, in the monastry of Thich Nhat Hanh in France where we train ourself in loving speech. Then I dive into practical training in the year 2014, and have done many intensive NVC schools. One in France relation NVC healing process for therapeutic purpose, two years in Germany with Robert Gonzales, a genuine and deeply experimented US trainer. For me, in my life practice I went at a point where I was stuck between my ideal from one side and the way I embodied them at that time in my spiritual longing. Then NVC have given me practicals tools to really support the incarnation of my deepest values in this world.To me it mean hope, action, passion and compassion at the same time.”

Marlene Edlmayr

Marlene Edlmayr

Austria

NVC to me is warmth, it means connecting with my inner truth and with others. To me it means courage and movement and by all means it is not that easy sometimes linked with old patterns and habits. But what struck me most from the beginning is a feeling of returning to my natural instruction as a human being. As an attitude within collaborative work I am amazed what kind of relationships can grow by this accepting and reflected way of communication and how it affects the spirit and the outcome of the collaboration.

Sylvie Hörning

Sylvie Hörning

Switzerland

Hello my name is Sylvie Hörning. After having grown up in South America and Switzerland I studied law in Zurich. Thereafter we moved to the US, Brazil and back to Switzerland. Learning new languages and communicating with people has always fascinated me.
When I first met Marshall Rosenberg in 2006 I was equally fascinated by his approach to communication from heart to heart, where empathy for the other AND for myself is a key element. I had heard of offering empathy to others, but the concept of offering it to myself was NEW and EXCITING. Since then I have become a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication and offer workshops, seminars for groups and individuals. The fields I mostly work in are education, family matters and parenting. And as I evolve in life, it is clear to me that at the core of any communication are individuals who want to be heard and express themselves with honesty. I started practicing NVC at home with my husband and three children. It wasn’t always easy and it never worked when I had the subtlest hidden agenda to make them do what I wanted! When I made the conscious decision to talk about my needs and hear what their needs were something shifted. We could connect at the heart level. I am so inspired by that way of having human interactions that I enjoy passing it on and accompanying people on their own path of discovery.

Paula Rossi

Paula Rossi

Austria/Finland

I’m passionate about the transformational power of nonviolence and communication. The magic happens when we allow ourselves to be seen and have the capacity to be in empathic presence with other people and especially within ourselves. It is an enriching and empowering  experience to feel the human connection. The guiding question for the practice could be: „When there is no violence in our heart, what kind of connection is possible?“

I work part-time as technical expert in an agile team in telecommunications sector. My second profession is to share NVC with groups and individuals. I’m a certified trainer for adult education and life consultant in training. The best teachers in my life have been my two meanwhile adult children.
