6 Month Intensive NVC Programme
Starts 26th January 2024

Welcome to the Sixth Edition of the Course

Extraordinary Intimate Relationships

is dedicated to your love relationship and especially your communication.

It is an intensive and life changing programme providing you measurable improvements in the relationship that matters most to you, plus an immersion in Nonviolent Communication. We offer a unique approach to learning combining traininglive application of the learning and continuous support throughout the programme and beyond.

Sign-up for the course as a couple or on your own. Either way you are joining more than a training programme – you are joining a group of people each committed to helping each other learn how to build the kind of intimate relationship you have dreamed of.

Through the programme you will gain significant insights into your love relationship and be able to apply those insights with immediate results. By the end of the 6 months you will notice clear progress in transforming your relationship.

You will learn about:

  • Yourself – your triggers; your emotional signals and what they mean; how to change your reactions; ask for what you need; stay connected to yourself even in difficult moments, how you like to give and receive love.
  • Your Partner – what their needs are; what they really mean and want from you; contribute to their enjoyment of life; support them in moments of crisis.
  • The Communication ‘Dance’ – create a deeper quality of connection and mutual understanding; resolve differences and conflicts in ways that are good for all; give high impact feedback; maintain dialogue at all times.
  • Enjoying Life – connect to the power you have to make life wonderful; celebrate your life together; communicate your gratitude and appreciation; honour the love between you.

The programme is built on the principles of Nonviolent Communication and you will learn the approach in a way that will enable you to apply it to your intimate relationship – and in all aspects of your life.

The programme counts as 7 days with a Certified Trainer.


This programme is for you if you are either wanting to learn NVC or wish for a more fulfilling intimate relationship with your partner. You also wish to work with a group of like minded and hearted people where you can safely explore your more vulnerable places.

You can take the course as a couple or join individually.

Here is what some of our previous participants said about the the programme:

Some of my inner fights are related to find ways to live more in the present, not to judge the others or to criticize myself. Starting to interiorize NVC, I have found easier to live more now and here. This brought to me more connection with simplicity and beauty of life. It has been life changing



Extraordinary relationships was for me a solid structure for practice of NVC. Starting from daily journaling, which became my best self-discovery tool ever, continue to the few empathy buddies while offering us space to be vulnerable and open. And of course the live sessions guided by the trainers .



The combination of plenty of practical exercises with individual coaching and hands-on course material provided me with lots of opportunities for practice and personal growth. 

I feel thrilled how fast the practice of NVC has helped me to improve my relationship.



Mona and Ian are great facilitators and two beautiful human beings who live the method and show they have done a lot of work on themselves. The bonds created in the group in this programme are deep. I would encourage anyone who wants to give themselves a great gift to join this programme.
