NVC Marriage journey

– Marriage Journey Mentoring or Mediation –

Our NVC training provides a model for couple therapy that helps increase intimacy and connection within the couple and restore trust when it has been damaged. In group therapy settings, our NVC program contributes to increased empathy and understanding among members thus enhancing the therapeutic process.

The process in NVC mediation include:

  • Focusing on observations, feelings, needs and requests to support people in taking responsibility for their own experience, and being compassionate with themselves;
  • “Pulling by the ears” to help people hear the observations, feelings, needs, and requests of the other parties in the dispute, and build compassion for each other;
  • Offering “emergency first-aid empathy” when emotions are intense and people do not have the resources to listen to each other;
  • Tracking and balancing the process to clarity that everyone’s needs are heard and acknowledged;
  • Identifying and using needs as a guideline to craft agreements;
  • Using requests to find strategies, and checking to see if they work for everyone.

Mentoring is a way for us to help individuals enhance relationships. You may choose one or more sessions to assess a difficult relationship and learn skills to improve the relationship. We can support you in improving relationships with family in order to enhance trust, or with co-workers, supervisors, or your staff thus increasing cooperation and effectiveness. Empowering Communication does not require all parties to be conversant in the model and therefore invites individuals to take the first step in bringing more harmony to relationships

*The framework of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) is like systems theory 3.0, providing a scientifically sound and interconnected view of the health of our minds, relationships, and neural networks. When we are guided by an understanding of a healthy system as one that is integrated, emergent, and sustainable, we can consistently point our therapeutic choices in the direction of positive potential, whatever theory and model is being applied.
