NVC Coaching

Nonviolent Communication Coaching & Counselling Sessions
– via Skype/online or face to face in London UK

If you have an issue that is troubling you and would like some support to explore it then Daren can help you.  Daren offers 3 types of one to one support:

  • NVC Coaching – to help you develop and embed the skills of Nonviolent Communication
  • Conflict Coaching – To help you manage conflict that is manifesting in your professional or personal life.
  • Counselling with NVC or other processes – to help you to explore, understand and work through personal issues.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Coaching

You may have undertaken some training in Nonviolent Communication and find yourself wanting to embed or develop the embryonic NVC skills that you have learnt. Or you may have read about Nonviolent Communication or watched online videos and find yourself wanting some personal input to support you to incorporate it into your life or communication. Either way, Daren can help you. There are two main ways that we can do this. We can either work through issues that arise in your life, using the perspective of NVC, thus supporting you to learn through real life, personal examples. Alternatively, Daren can share several of the basic Nonviolent Communication processes and models – eg the NVC approach to empathy or anger – and you can practice them during the sessions, thus building your skills and knowledge more systematically. Or we can alternate between both of these approaches.

Conflict Coaching

You may have found your way to this website because you have conflicts in your professional or personal life that you are wishing to resolve. Perhaps you recognise that you need more skill at dealing with conflict. Nonviolent Communication is a powerful tool for conflict management and conflict resolution, and Daren can help you utilize it. Daren is also familiar with other models, such as Transactional Analysis (TA), which he can share with you to help you develop the skills you need. Daren will share the most suitable models for your situation, working through your personal examples or live issues until you have sufficiently embedded the skills you need.


If you have an issue that is troubling you and would like some support to explore it then Daren can help you. Daren can offer you empathic support using Nonviolent Communication, if you would simply like to be heard and support to help you connect with or understand your needs and how you might go about meeting them more effectively. Daren also works with several other counselling-related processes, including: Voice Dialogue – empathic listening to the different parts, or voices within you; Psychotrauma Therapy using the Identity Method, exploring traumatic experiences particularly in relation to childhood; TRE – a body process to help you release tension, stress and trauma held in your body; and relationship counselling to help you explore issues in your relationship (Daren also works with couples – see the Relationship Counselling page of this website).

NVC Coaching or Counselling Options – Face to face or via Zoom/Online

Currently Daren is only offering coaching or counselling sessions online, usually on Zoom.
Before the Covid-19 lockdown Daren ran sessions from his office, which was located in east central London, EC2M.  During lockdown he had to give up his lease on his office.  He may return to this venue at some point in the future.  However, as he now lives in Hastings on the south coast of the UK, this is not as straightforward as it used to be.
There may also be an option to see Daren in person in Hastings.  Please discuss with Daren, if this is something that you are interested in.

Feedback from coachees:

“I really needed to be heard with so much compassion and presence, so I want to express my gratitude to you. It gave me strength and perspective and there have been things that I’ve been able to solve, thanks to our first session.” – Kiki B, Dec 2015

“Daren, I wanted to let you know how you have taught me so well, impacted me, helped me and continue to help me by your example. Our sessions were healing, transformative, creative, unique and very special….and I will never forget them!” – Sue B, March 2015

“Thanks again for the work you did with me, Daren. Your support and coaching was very helpful and massively contributed to my development!” – Stuart L. March, 2014

“I gained a true sense of being respected and understood from my time with Daren. This was in sweet contrast to help I have experienced elsewhere which has sometimes left me confused by interjections of judgement and analysis – stopping me in my flow and breaking rapport. With Daren I felt supported to deepen naturally and to develop my truth without ever consciously being therapised. This took me further, faster than I had imagined and I shall carry the acceptance I experienced with me going forward.” – Andy N, April 2014

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for yesterday’s session: the positive effects of the empathy you give to me are felt even physically – my body today has felt noticeably “lighter” than usual and my mind clearer.” – Gianluca, March 2013

“I can’t thank you enough for the sessions we have already had, they have yielded more than I could ever have hoped for.” – Nicky, March 2013
