Most of us learn pretty unhealthy communication skills growing up. It's up to us as adults to learn new skills to change the way we do relationships for the better.
Compassionate Communication (or Nonviolent Communication) was designed to help connect with our personal values and clearly express them to those we love.
Every couple struggles to understand each other sometimes and disagreements are bound to happen over time.
But with support you can learn to navigate conflict in a loving way. Let me help you change the way you love.
Changing the way you do conflict takes just a few simple steps. Learn the specific tools you need to transform the way you argue.

Nonviolent Communication (Compassionate Communication)
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence - the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.
NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.
People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

Nonviolent Communication Background
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) or Compassionate Communication training evolved from Dr. Rosenberg’s quest to find a way of rapidly disseminating much needed peacemaking skills. The CNVC emerged out of work he was doing with civil rights activists in the early 1960's.
Since the inception of the Center, the response to NVC training has been extremely positive. It is a powerful tool for peacefully resolving conflict. Dr. Rosenberg has provided Nonviolent Communication training in 60 countries. He's been active in war-torn areas and economically disadvantaged countries, offering NVC training to promote reconciliation and peaceful resolution of differences.
Worldwide reactions have been inspiring. This training vastly strengthens the ability to connect compassionately with oneself and others, as well as to resolve differences peacefully. Reports also indicate that the benefit of the training is not only stable over time, but actually increases.
About Marshall Rosenberg, Founder of Nonviolent Communication
Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg was the founder and director of educational services for The Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC).
Growing up in an inner–city Detroit neighborhood, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg was confronted daily with various forms of violence. Wanting to explore the causes of violence and what could be done to reduce violence, he chose to study clinical psychology and received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in 1961. In 1966 he was awarded diplomat status in clinical psychology from the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology.
