Counselling sessions are offered to individuals or couples to address specific personal and relationship issues. It is generally recommended that a set of at least four 50 minute sessions is undertaken.
After an introductory or other workshop some individuals find it helpful to have an opportunity to explore in one or more individual sessions aspects of nonviolent communication particularly relevant in their lives. These 50 minute sessions offer an opportunity to focus on what matters most to you, and how to bring nonviolent communication more actively into your life.
Compassionate or nonviolent communication leads you deeply into yourself. Its outward manifestation in relationship with others is no more than a reflection of an inner development that gives rise to questions about who we are and our meaning and purpose in life. One-off or sustained one-to-one spiritual guidance sessions are offered to those drawn to explore more deeply.
