The WOW factor

Working On 'We' in relationships using Nonviolent Communication

Coaching · Workshops · Mediation

None of us is born with the ‘how to have good relationships’ manual. Instead, we learn from experience.

What we learn doesn’t always serve us well but we muddle through.

Or maybe we don’t – Maybe our relationships fracture, or even become abusive.

At home or at work, there is an alternative.

I can help you find ways to move things forward that work for everyone.

Just call me for a no-obligation exploration session that will give you some powerful take-aways and a vision of a way forward.

Wanting better communication?

Nonviolent Communication. You’ve heard how powerful it is. You’ve seen some videos. Maybe you’ve read one of Marshall Rosenberg’s books. It all seemed straightforward. But then you tried it and it didn’t seem to work.

Facing relationship challenges?

Your relationship just isn’t working for you. You wonder where the love and care has gone. You find yourselves arguing over trivial things, leaving you feeling isolated, hurt or angry and longing for deeper connection.

In conflict with a significant person?

It’s painful, and preying on your mind … you don’t see a way forward … and the other party seems in no mood to change… But things can’t go on as they are. The relationship matters. So what can you do?

Separation and divorce?

You’re relieved to be out of your relationship. But life as a newly single person has its own challenges. Looking ahead, you have mixed emotions and you wonder what the future holds. It helps to talk!

What others say

I was so grateful for the support you gave… already I have felt a difference in my relationships with others.

I know we wouldn’t be where we are today if it hadn’t been for all your help, and I will always be incredibly grateful for your wise words and calming influence and I continue to recommend NVC and especially you!

Working with Jo is like being held in a warm embrace – and yet she also has a way of asking tough questions…ever so gently! It’s in the nature of Jo’s delivery that I felt completely engaged.
– Anneliese Guerin Le Tendre – 
Jo is a great listener and helped me to resolve a very difficult personal situation in a constructive way for both parties.
– Barbara Goldsmith –
I appreciate your empathy very, very much. It is not often I am able to expel my vitriol to another person without terrifying them. It isn’t something I mean to do. You are far stronger than most; you are not easily scared.

Many thanks for the sensitive way in which you guided us through our journey.

The day was packed with learning and self-awareness insights…Jo is a warm and patient teacher, passionate and knowledgeable about her subject and responded quickly and flexibly to needs of a very demanding group!

I so appreciate the energy, creativity and passion that you brought to the conversation, and having the opportunity to work with you. And I love the wisdom, lightness and brilliance that you bring to our entity – thank you.

The way Jo communicates is a great advertisement for NVC
– Elizabeth Medlar –
(This) might just have transformed my life. I discovered a new sense of acceptance and joy with my partner. I was able to release both of us from expectations I hadn’t realised were there … Jo has brought this to life with such warmth, skill and humour….a remarkably enjoyable and fulfilling course.
