Simon McKibbin aka Sinhaketu

Name: Simon McKibbin

Certified Trainer: Yes

Location: South East England, England

On a training event many years ago, I was very touched by Marshall's ability to empathise and connect with an individual who could only moan loudly when in distress to the point where this man was able to find his balance and humanity. I was so moved by this I was inspired to become a trainer to offer this quality of presence to the world. This vision of presence and connection has become my North Star, and key passion in life.
The following information gives you a sense of what I offer and where I am coming from in terms of skills and approaches

I certified in NVC in 2005. I am also a certified BFA Teacher in Focusing (and certified Mindfulness, of which I have 30 years experience both as practitioner and teacher). Mindfulness and Focusing enables my approach to NVC to be fully embodied with a focus on Presence and quality of Being.

I have been passionately integrating NVC into a Focusing based Mindfulness approach in Cambridge University where I am now on placement as a Mindfulness teacher.

With community being one of my core values, I have founded the Irish NVC Community National Gatherings. I facilitate a number of NVC community building projects (noteably the year long KLC, Knowing, Living, Connecting) courses at An Tionol and Focusing Community building at Slieve Aughty in County Galway, Ireland.

I am currently director of Mindfulness for Cambridge Inner Game Leadership Consultancy where I also integrate NVC into the teaching approach. I am part of a team offering training to blue chip companies like Google and Microsoft.

I love to help individuals and couples through One to One Phone and Coaching Skype for Recovery and Wellness (depression, anxiety, panic attacks) & NVC courses for Life Skills (interpersonal relationships and communication).
