Online course for couples

Online course for couples

My husband and I have had a terrific breakthrough experience as a result of the training, so we are both optimistic for what comes next. Tricia

About the course

Is your partnership on the rocks, or heading in that direction? We can help you understand each other by identifying each other’s needs. With two trainers present, there will be slots on each call for “fighting safely” – mediation support.

Learning objectives

  • Taking a time in: self-connection.
  • Hearing the needs behind difficult messages.
  • Saying and hearing a “No”.
  • How to say “I love you”.
  • “Scary honesty”.

When and where

Six Thursday evenings, 7.30 – 9.30pm, starting 21 March 2019.

This is an online course. We will invite you to six online calls, using a platform called Zoom — instructions to follow. Zoom allows us to break out into ‘rooms’ for smaller group and couples work.

Who is this course for?

For couples of all sexual orientations and gender identification, who want to learn how to “fight safely” without losing love and closeness. No previous NVC experience necessary. 


We love making this work available for couples of different financial resources, so we’re offering a sliding scale of: £200 – £500 per couple.

  • If you are both under the UK tax threshold/receiving benefits: £200.
  • If you are both earning up to the UK national average income: £350.
  • If you are both above the UK national average income: £500.
  • Other: please contact us.

About the trainers

Shantigarbha and Gesine have been living and sharing NVC as a wo/man English/German couple for the past four years, so they know the difficulties that couples face in relation to temperament, social background / expectations and gender identification. More about the trainers.
