About NVC

NVC was developed by Marshall Rosenberg, a psychologist and peacemaker who studied with Carl Rogers, the founder of the person-centered approach. NVC is a practice of listening empathically, speaking authentically, and creating connections based on understanding, compassion, and respect. As a therapeutic approach, NVC helps therapists move beyond the typical focus on feelings to a deeper dive into the hearts of our clients through a focus on universal human needs. There are so many benefits to bringing the skills and principles of NVC into the therapy room, including:

  • Greater ease in accessing and expressing your empathy for your clients

  • Increased capacity to manage and work with your own "countertransference"

  • More respectful therapeutic relationships, rooted in a "power-with" rather than "power-over" dynamic

  • Greater access to the natural compassion in your humanity-loving heart!
