Non-Violent Communication















People often ask me about effective communication. They ask how they can be better at it, how they can make their point more easily and then have their views and message accepted by others in a more effective way. In my opinion, using Marshall Rosenberg’s method of Non-Violent Communication is one of the simplest and most effective differences that you can make in how you communicate with others in your life.

The steps are simple and consist of 4 parts:

  1. Observations
  2. Feelings
  3. Needs
  4. Requests

You can see these steps outlined in the chart below.

Non-Violent Communication




















How often do you actually express what it is you feel, or need?  How often do you make a clear request of the other person? How often do you really listen and feel heard yourself. It all begins by how YOU express yourself, how you identify your needs in the situation and in what way you ask for what you’d like to have happen.

In this film below, Brian Johnson outlines more of the principles of Non-Violent Communication (NVC). It’s not too long and contains some really useful, condensed information on this subject so you can easily apply this to your life by following a few simple steps.


If you’d like to work through this in more detail or discuss any other aspect of how being able to communicate effectively could create deep and lasting changes in your world, please feel free to book a session with me here and we can explore the possibilities for your life. Clear, clean communication is incredibly important to us all and I wonder what a difference it might make for your life if you were to imagine the possibilities for how you could live differently if you were able to be heard, to ask for what you went to have happen and create a more harmonious dialogue wth those around you?
