How to access and use your power – so that everyone benefits


A two day workshop to help us stay grounded and powerful even in the most challenging situations



I’ve recently been hearing people talk about their experiences with hospital consultants. A common theme – from an admittedly small sample – was feelings of frustration and powerlessness. They said things like:

‘He didn’t listen to me’

‘It was as though I didn’t matter’

‘I don’t trust that the consultant understood what it was like for me’

And this set me thinking about ‘power’:

  • What is it?
  • Who has it?
  • How do we experience it?
  • How we access our own power?
  • What leads us to give away our power?
  • How do we influence people?
  • Why is it so difficult to ‘speak truth to power’?


So then…

Pondering these questions, I realised just how helpful NVC can be in helping us:

  • access our own power
  • use it constructively
  • hold on to it even in the face of others’ use of their power.


The result: A two-day workshop

Join me to:

  • explore how we think about power
  • delve into how we experience powerful people
  • reflect on what influences our ability to access our own power
  • practice, practice, practice how to recognise our power and use it to benefit ourselves and others.


I’m scheduling the workshop on two days separated by a period of two weeks. This, I believe, will encourage us to think, explore and experiment and come back for the second day with new insights to share.

Dates: To be confirmed. Please contact me if you’d like to be kept informed of when it will next be run.
