This is not necessary…
Imagine that:

  • You’ve learned to fully resolve conflicts, so you have real peace and relaxation.

  • You know how to address things in a connecting way, creating confidence and space for you in your relationships.

  • Others opens up with you and show vulnerability so you experience more connection.

  • You know how to take care of yourself in your relationships, independent of what the other person does or says, which makes you feel more safe and empowered.

why you might find communication hard right now

We simply never learned how to resolve conflict, how to say ‘no’ and how to take care of our needs.

So some compassion is needed: it is not your fault that you haven’t learned in school how to create harmony after a fight.

It’s not your fault that you may not have had parents that showed you how to bridge differences in a relationship.

The lack of education in the past about how to have great relationships is out of our hands.

What is in your control, is what you decide to do next.

You can learn how to have an amazing relationship with yourself and others. I’ve seen this with all of my students, even the ones that didn’t have any hope.

The only thing you need is…

An ACTIONABLE APPROACH 

An ACTIONABLE APPROACH 

Nonviolent Communication is the most effective tool for relationships that I’ve found.

I’ve done extensive research on the best way to translate this method into simple, doable action, and have done countless interviews with you to create a system that actually works for you.

This has resulted in the NVC Foundations Course.

 With this course you will:

  • Learn to know what you need in every moment, so you are more confident and clear on that.
  • Learn to ask for what you want in a connecting way, so your needs will actually be met.
  • Learn to resolve any conflict that may arise in the process, so you can feel more relaxed together.
  • Learn to listen in a way that others will open up more

NVC is a model and every model has its limitations. To account for that I have added a few other methods that I find essential for relationships.

All in all, this is the only relationship program based on NVC that can be done fully from your own home, either by yourself or with life support, and has been proven successful for both those who are in relationship crisis and those who just want to improve their connections.

“Life Changing”

– Clementine (France)

Our relationships determine our happiness.

A 75-year Harvard research study about happiness came to one resounding conclusion: good relationships are the number one factor in our overal happiness. We can have a nice job and money in the bank, but if we’re not happy with the people around us, this spoils everything. 

How the course works:

Access to the NVC Communication Formula

This consists of videos and exercises that will teach Nonviolent Communication step by step. You can follow the modules in the safety and the privacy of your own home, at your own pace.  After following them, you will have learned all the basics of NVC.

  • The videos will be available for at least 5 years (and probably longer), so you can also re-watch them after the program has finished.
  • The weekly videos are not available on Youtube or elsewhere. I sometimes add videos from my Youtube as an extra source.

Daily personal support and feedback from Marianne

In the secret Facebook Community specifically setup for this course. Ask any questions you have or bring in a case and I will guide you further every day of the working week. This way you will never need to wait until the next lesson if you’re stuck. It’s also great to build connection with the group.

  • You will get this daily guidance during the video weeks in the first 3 months and then another 3 months in case you are taking a bit longer.
  • There will be support for those who don’t have experience with Facebook.

During the group coaching you will be guided to practice with others. You can also get  coaching for issues you’re dealing with.

  • Cara Crisler is a senior NVC trainer and mediator and a licensed coach. She has been my mentor for the past years and I consider her an amazingly gentle and safe guide for learning NVC.

A little more info about the trainers:

I’m an NVC trainer and mediator.

Over the past years I’ve trained hundreds of people from the US, the Netherlands and other countries. I also own the biggest Youtube channel about NVC worldwide.

Before learning about NVC I suffered from depressions and was an enormous people pleaser. After learning about NVC I started to stand up for myself and deepened my relationships.

I can’t wait to share my tools with you and let you experience what NVC can bring!

Cara is an NVC trainer, mediator and accredited coach (at senior level by the European Mentoring & Coaching Council).

She learned NVC after moving from the States to the Netherlands.  ‘It helped me most in unlearning old patterns, like pleasing and avoiding conflict. It helped me learn how to be in tune with me, true to myself while staying in connection with important people in my life. I now apply it in all of my relationships: as a partner, mother, friend, colleague and perhaps the most important one of all, the one I have with myself.’

You might think…

I AM TOO BUSY RIGHT NOW…

I get it. And yes, you do need to put in some time to make the program work: it takes about one hour a week. But I did design the program in such a way that you can tailor it to your circumstances. Are you very full? Just come to the live calls. This is where we help you personally with your case. You have longterm access to the videos, so you can watch those at your own pace.

Do you have a bit more time? Watch the videos, do the exercises and participate actively in the Facebook Group. You can ask me questions there every day of the working week. All in all, you can adjust depending on your energy each week what you choose to participate in. It will be a relaxing and rewarding experience.

Oh and everything you learn during the course will save you so much time and so much energy!

WHAT IF I’M NOT GOOD AT THIS?

Maybe you have an image of yourself as not good at standing up for yourself. Or a label that you are ‘too aggressive’. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to change. When you learn to judge yourself less and take care of what you need, that is what will reflect in your relationships.

Also, this program is not like school: there are no exams or grades…this is all for your benefit. And I know that people only learn when things are fun. So I made the program in such a way that it is joyful and inspiring to follow. I love humor and lightness and hope you will laugh during the course 🙂

I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY…

Consider this: the health of our relationships determines how we feel about our life. We may have a great job and nice friends, but if the time with our partner sucks…our life sucks! It’s our strong, safe bonds that help us to be our best in all other areas of our life.

The investment for this course is nothing compared to that of an individual or relationship therapist. This is waaay more cost effective! And the investment for your life is so worth it..you will get that back: in time, energy, in joy..

I CAN DO THIS BY MYSELF

Yes, you can read books and watch Youtube videos to improve your relationship. But to really implement everything, is a whole different story. You need to know what things to start with and in what order to go. You need to actually DO things differently. You need to know what to do when you try something with your partner/colleague/friend and then they don’t react the way you expected.

This course is designed in a specific order that guarantees results. I help you with weekly exercises to actually act in a new way. And we know what to do with whatever reaction other people give – so we can tackle things together. That way you see progress fast and certain and you ensure not to make things worse.

Where does the course take place?

Everything is online — no travel, babysitter or even pants are required. You have access to the training for at least five years and probably longer, so you can go through the materials each week as they’re released in the member’s area, or you can slow things down and work at your own pace.

If you have no experience with Facebook, I will guide you through it – no worries!
