Beginner’s Course

Do you love personal growth?

and do you recognize yourself in the following:

 When you have a disagreement it never seems to be completely resolved in a satisfying way.

You discover sometimes AFTER speaking with someone that you are not comfortable with something they said or did.

If you say no to someone, you feel guilty or worried that they might judge you.

 You don’t know how to deal with self-judgments about things like: your looks, your character, or choices you have made.

You take responsibility for someone else’s feelings.

We never learned in school how to communicate in relationships and solve conflicts.

You probably learned a few things by trial and error, but just like when you learn how to play an instrument, it saves so much time and energy when someone demonstrates what are the principles and techniques that really work.

I believe Nonviolent Communication offers the most amazing tools for relationships, because it is about finding the need behind someone’s words.

By doing this you get more connection and cooperation.

I’m Marianne,

I’m 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.

Before learning Nonviolent Communication I had trouble standing up for myself. I had a burnout while being a philosophy student and got depressed while working as a journalist. I wasn’t able to be radically honest about my boundaries and didn’t even know that my relationships could be so much more nourishing.

When I took courses in NVC I started to stand for myself, I transformed the connection with my family, created an amazing love relationship and haven’t suffered from burnout or depression again.

I realized that the best way to take care of a connection is to take care of yourself.

NVC offers such concrete steps in how to do that that I can’t wait to share them with you.

Concrete results of this program are:

You’ll know how to ask for what you need in a way that has a much higher chance to get a yes from someone.

 You’re able to say no in a way that is less likely to be painful for the other person.

When you are uncomfortable you are aware of it and you have the confidence to speak up in the moment itself.

 You dare to be more truthful and thus have a bigger sense of self-acception.

 You’re able to translate judgments from others so they hurt less.

You have concrete tools to come up with solutions that work for all people involved, making you a very popular person to work together with 😉 .

You are such a good listener that you notice people opening up with you even more than usually.

 You are more creative in finding strategies for your needs and thus have more of a sense of independence from your partner or family.

When you feel bad you know why and what to do, making sure that emotions dont get stuck and you stay healthy both mentally and physically.

Thanks to all of the above mentioned skills, you have more time and energy for work and other important goals.

“My need for personal growth was being met.”

Since starting NVC classes with Marianne, I’ve had several encounters with family and friends that would have gone a different non-NVC direction had I not been tuned into needs. Instead, I was connected to needs (mine and those of others) and things went much better! Each time, I was so thrilled, not just because of the happier outcome but because my need for personal growth was being met.
