Bridget O'Donnell

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 South Australia, and designing jewellery and learning aids, to support NVC education. I love long distance hiking, and would like to facilitate NVC learning opportunities which involve hiking and camping.

  1. I live in an Ecovillage south of Adelaide, Australia, I’ve been married for 24yrs, and I’m a mother of a gorgeous son. In Aldinga, I facilitate a practice group, Foundation trainings, and offer one on one, and couples Coaching.

Trainings offered by Bridget O'Donnell

Im currently offering a fortnightly NVC Meetup at a local cafe called Goodness.  We meet from 11-12.30 and explore NVC in a fun relaxed way, often through card games, and other processes that help to bypass the intellect, and get to the heart of issues that people bring.

I also facilitate a Restorative Circle practice group and an NVC Practice group within the Aldinga Arts Ecovillage.

I also offer Foundation trainings that are advertised on my Facebook page.

The next one I have coming up is on the 22nd and the 29th July, consecutive Sundays from 10am – 4pm

At Fleurieu Yoga Studio, Shop 1 Old Coach Rd. Aldinga. Opposite Maxwell’s Grocery Cafe.
