I’m Marianne.

I help you to have ease in communicating with your partner.

I think it’s insane that we don’t learn in school how to communicate in relationships and solve conflicts.

How do we as a human race expect to solve wars between nations if we don’t even know how to create peace at our own kitchen table?

For me it’s so painful to see unresolved conflict and distance between couples, because I discovered it’s not necessary..you can be yourself AND still have an amazing connection with the one you love. There are just a few things you need to learn..

I have always known exactly how to take care of myself in relationships. KIDDING! I suffered for years from loneliness, a burnout and serious depressions. In my twenties and early thirties I had several short relationships in which I felt lonely and not fully appreciated. I was single for a long time and felt distant towards men.

I learned with meditation and yoga to take care of myself. But these things didn’t teach me how to stand for what I needed with others.

How to even know what I could ask, and ask for it in a way that was likely to create a ‘yes’ in the other person. How to say ‘no’ to things without chasing away others.

Everything changed when I heard about Nonviolent Communication.

One day my mindfulness teacher told me that the way I put something completely fitted with something she called ‘Nonviolent Communication’. I thought the name was kind of stupid. Sounded way too soft. But I looked it up on Youtube and before I knew it I had watched a 3-hour video from Marshall Rosenberg. I was so excited: ‘OMG, there is a way to be radically honest AND keep a good connection with others!’ I started to follow all courses available.

The results were astonishing.

I met a guy with whom I didn’t feel alone anymore. I knew how to solve conflicts in a way that they actually made us stronger instead of leaving little scars. I got a group of friends that know the NVC techniques, which means I always have people around me with amazing listening skills.

I also dared to have important talks with my parents about things that affected me in my childhood. Not only did I know how to talk about it without them feeling judged, it also strengthened our bond.

And the best of all, the thing that really BLOWS MY MIND: ever since I mastered NVC, I haven’t had a single burnout or depression anymore.

I wish this kind of transformation for everyone, which is why I took a course to become a trainer in Nonviolent Communication.

Over the past years, I’ve trained hundreds of people from both the US and the Netherlands. I also own one of the biggest NVC Youtube channels worldwide.

My mission is to make sure that going to a course for the health of your relationships will be just as mainstream as going to the gym for your physical health. And yes, I believe that in the long term, this will lead to a more peaceful society. But it starts with filling your own cup.

I believe everyone can transform their relationship in a way that gives them energy and nourishment. I’d LOVE to help you get there.
