Karen Thompson-Anderson

NVC is a pathway to our greatest wealth…an ability to self-empathise and transform the blocks to our own wellbeing and self-expression in the world.

Work with me to transform the power-over and power-under communication in your relating with yourself, with others and with your life’s work. There is no more important work than being able to stand in our power and do the work we love to do both professionally and personally.

About Karen Thompson-Anderson 

For over 10 years I’ve been learning and sharing NVC to support connection, in personal relationships and purpose businesses and teams.

My most important lesson with NVC is to start with the journey of friendship within. You are only that one extraordinary friendship away from radical wellbeing in your life and work.

I invite you to connect with me to see if working with me is right for you.
