Transforming the Pain of Unmet Needs

Drawing on the work of International Trainer the late Robert Gonzales, this workshop will explore transformative ways of relating to unmet needs.

We’ll be adding a process called “Differentiation” to the practice – an approach that supports getting some distance from the stories we tell ourselves, that often leave us stuck and in pain.

On this one-day online structured training, we will:

Use experiential exercises and examples from our own lives to:

  • We uncover the stories that keep us stuck.
  • Bring curiosity, compassion and kindness to the parts of us that are in pain.
  • Transform our pain into richness and beauty.
  • Dwell in our heart’s true yearnings.

Who is this training for?

  • event is for those who want to deepen their understanding and experience of NVC in theory and practice. A pre-requisite is that will have completed a two-day foundation training in NVC, or equivalent and want to integrate and embody NVC more fully in your life. will ensure a common foundation for intermediate-level engagement and practice.

More about Carolyn

I grew up in Australia and began a career in television in the mid 90’s producing and directing documentary/current affairs programs for the ABC.

In my work I had so many different relationships to manage; people with different needs and expectations and despite my best intentions, it was a pretty tough gig managing the stress, keeping things balanced and moving forward.

In 2004 I discovered Nonviolent Communication and was blown away!  I took it into my next TV job and saw it make a huge difference to the way I approached the people and the demands I faced and I have been a passionate NVC practitioner ever since.

I moved to London in 2005 and continued to Produce and Direct TV programmes for the BBC and ITV, nurturing my NVC skills on the side.

In 2014 I became a Certified Trainer with CNVC.

I am passionate about the potential NVC has to transform relationships with ourselves and others.  I have a strong interest in bringing NVC into workplaces to deal with stress and conflict.  I’m also passionate about it complementing approaches to mental health challenges like depression and anxiety.
