This amazing opportunity has knocked on my door. I’m becoming a Connecting2Life trainer.
I feel such excitement and joy because I will be working with a team of trainers that have been (and continue to be) a big source of inspiration to me. The shared values of honesty, empathy, and being on a mission together are so meaningful to me.
NVC has transformed my life in many ways. Before learning NVC I would avoid conflict and was uncomfortable with people’s intense feelings. I now enjoy being with and supporting people going through intense feelings with presence and care. My connections with the people around me have become deeply nourishing. I experience inner clarity about what it is I long for and how to create that in my life.
I have spent a big part of my life hiding. With NVC I learned how nourishing it is to be seen and welcomed. And also the preciousness of hiding, which sometimes I still like to do.
I’ve been a teacher in primary education and connecting with children through NVC for 11 years. I’m super excited to begin teaching at the school of L.I.F.E. – Learning in a Free Environment, an NVC democratic school near Amsterdam. It’s a place where I can live and teach in line with my values even more.
For the last five years I have been following and assisting NVC courses with Yoram and others, giving workshops in schools and doing many mediations between children. It’s been a process of trying, stumbling and trying again while adding many different skills to my toolbox. I would love to share my learnings and tools with you.
I look forward to welcoming you in a course, a one on one session or mediation.

Daisy’s authenticity and courage to show vulnerability played a big part in my deciding to join the Basic course, and soon turned out to be an integral part of her embodiment of the NVC teachings. From the beginning, her sincere way of teaching brought me a safe feeling and atmosphere to explore my own thoughts, feelings and needs and to connect with the others, learn and experiment together. NVC’s teachings and Daisy’s way of translating them with lightness into everyday situations and challenges have had an immediate impact on both my personal relations and my inner state of mind, for which I’m truly grateful.
I have had the chance to participate in the online Basic Course. I feel deeply grateful for the knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm that shines through Daisy’s teaching. It feels delightful and sincere. It helped me learn and improve my NVC practices and this course has inspired me to continue the adventure of learning NVC.
