A few years ago, after having worked in the corporate sector for over a decade, I decided to leave my job as a Certified Management Accountant in a large corporation. With the desire to fulfill my highest potential and live a meaningful life, I embarked on a journey of healing and transformation. During this process, I realized that my passion was working with people to help them grow and find purpose and meaning in their lives. I took the necessary training and became a Registered Professional Counsellor and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
In my capacity as a counsellor, I have found Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to be a great tool in helping people (including myself) to focus their attention inward and stay connected to their core in the midst of confusion and chaos. Albert Einstein once said: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” It is when we are connected to our own core, the process of building the bridge of connection with another person at the level of true essence can begin to take place. Connecting at the level of true essence is where chaos and confusion can be transformed into understanding, co-operation and mutual appreciation.
On a personal level, I know that whenever I am connected, my body is filled with feelings of aliveness and joy. NVC serves as a reminder to me that the pathway to my life force energy is through self-honesty, empathy and compassion.
As a group facilitator, I am passionate about helping and assisting others to find their path to conscious living, whether it be in the role of a parent, a child, a spouse, or an employee. Being involved with the NVC practice group fulfills my need for connection, contribution and community. I feel honored to assist others on their journeys of personal growth.
