Anger is a powerful and widespread emotion in our culture and NVC has a unique approach to it.  In NVC we define it as a ‘life-alienated emotion’.  The NVC approach to anger differs from the basic NVC model, including an extra step!

During this workshop we will explore how to connect with our anger and ensure that it is expressed in a life affirming way.  We will also explore the range of feelings that often underlie anger.  Finally, we will look at how we can connect with other people when they are angry, either with us or with someone else.

The workshop will be focused on clarifying what anger is and how to work with it from an NVC perspective. Each half-day of the training will include theory input and discussion and one round of practice in small groups of approx 3 participants in break out rooms. The practice session will last approx 1 hour on each half-day.

We will cover the following themes during the training, with either practice or discussion to support each theme:
– The physiology of anger
– Anger as life force
– The unique NVC approach to anger
– Expressing our anger using NVC
– De-escalating an angry person using NVC

NB: If anger is an issue that you struggle with personally in your life, then this training will serve as an introduction to working with your anger from an NVC perspective. Daren also works one to one with people as a part of an anger management consultancy that he runs. If you want support to work with your anger in an ongoing way you are welcome to contact Daren to discuss whether and how he could support you.


This workshop is part of the NVC London Intermediate Training Programme (see below for more info).  Participants will be expected to have completed a two day foundation training in NVC, or equivalent.  This will ensure a common foundation for intermediate level engagement and practice.


This training will be facilitated by Daren De Witt.  Daren has been living and practicing NVC since the year 2000 and he has been running an anger management counselling practice in central London for the past 12 years.  Daren trained extensively with Marshall Rosenberg, the creator of NVC, between the years 2000-2006.  He has been a certified trainer with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) since 2003, and has run NVC trainings regularly in London since that time.  As well as sharing his understanding of Marshall’s approach to the themes of this workshop, Daren will also share with you the fruits of his many years of NVC learning, practice and reflection around anger.


9.30am till 12.45pm on Sat 5th & Sun 6th Aug.  There will be a 15 minute tea break mid-morning.
NB. If you can leave space in your diary until 1pm on both days, that will support us if we go over the finish time.

What is the NVC London Intermediate Training Programme?

The NVC London Intermediate training programme consists of 12 individual trainings across the course of a year, one training taking place on one weekend each month, as either two half days or one full day.  We have focused on making the programme as flexible as possible.  Each training stands alone, so you can attend as few or as many of the trainings as you wish.  We are intending to repeat this intermediate training programme every year, so you can start at any point during the year and following the training programme through to completion for yourself the following year.  You can also attend any individual trainings that you miss one year in the following year.

The trainings will be facilitated by five London-based certified NVC trainers.  Each trainer is facilitating approx two trainings from the programme.  So you will be able to enjoy the individual perspective, understanding and specialism of each trainer.  We hope you will enjoy the richness of the themes and trainer input that this programme offers.


To deepen your understanding and experience of NVC in theory and practice.  Sustained input over the course of a year will support you to integrate and embody NVC more fully in your life.


Participants will be expected to have completed a two day foundation training in NVC, or equivalent.  This will ensure a common foundation for intermediate/level 2 engagement and practice.
