A bit about me:-

I am a candidate for CNVC Certification, a graduate of Embodying NVC, an accredited Embodying NVC Coach, and a member of the trainer team of Embodying NVC – an 8 month immersion program with retreats held in Sydney. I have had the privilege to train with international teachers Dominic Barter, Kit Miller, Leo Sofer, Liv Larsson, Robert Gonzales, Vikki Pearce, and Karl Steyaert.

My experience working in general and psychiatric nursing has contributed to my compassion for the human condition; and through my yoga and meditation practises, I have developed a deep connection with myself and an authentic presence with others. I’ve been told that I bring creativity, emotional intelligence, and a natural empathy to my coaching and teaching. My love of colour and playfulness influences my trainings, which I call “Play-Shops”. Currently I’m working on a collaborative project developing NVC events in Adelaide, and designing jewellery and learning aids, to support NVC education. I love long distance hiking, and would like to develop NVC learning opportunities which involve hiking and camping.

I live in an Ecovillage south of Adelaide, Australia, I’ve been married for 22yrs, and I’m a mother of a gorgeous son. In Aldinga, I facilitate a practice group for women, Foundation trainings, and provide one on one Coaching.

Trainings offered by Bridget O'Donnell

I’m planning a Foundation Workshop “Playshop” in September 2017

Private sessions


I offer 45-minute sessions via Skype, phone, or in person. What works well, is committing to a group of sessions, which allows time to work towards a goal; learning or honing core NVC skills along the way. I use a collaborative approach, and I work towards making my service redundant, as you develop a competence and confidence with the skills in your everyday life.
