Testimonials

“I experienced profound results with NVC in my personal relationship and was very fortunate to have Filippa support my partner and I directly with this process. We continue to use NVC as the base for all of our communication, especially the “tricky” stuff.

I soon realised that on a business level, NVC could benefit my whole team and so I asked Filippa to run a weekly series with my staff. I soon noticed a more conscious connection in how we communicated with each other, and there was a level of clarity that we had never had before. Now, when issues arise, we have a clear course of action through using NVC techniques and resolutions can be found naturally and easily.

I believe the practice of conscious, compassionate communication can change our world from the ground up.”

“I highly recommend this process. I’ve done the weekend workshop with Cate Crombie (metacommunicate.com) and Filippa Araki (who is my daughter) and have found it very powerful for understanding and resolving blocks in communication. I also have frequent chats with Filippa about issues that arise in our daily lives, and she shares her understanding with me, in a very enlightening dialogue. We both enjoy this process, which, though profound, is also fun and becomes easier as you apply it.”

“I felt very comfortable, supported and engaged. Filippa allowed people the space to talk and express what was going on for them. In facilitating the training, she gave the perfect amount of guidance – never pushy – never judgemental, never shaming – just perfect, gentle guidance.”
——————————————————————————
“Filippa was extremely sensitive to dealing with questions and concerns. Being one of the slower members of the group, I could easily have expected to not have my needs met – but the reverse happened. Without slowing the whole group down, she was able to see everyone’s needs were met – excellent teacher.”
——————————————————————————
“I would just like to thank you for arriving in my life at a very pivotal point. Your strong message and belief in compassionate communication and its potential as a life changer has really inspired me to think more about what is important in my life as well as to focus more on engaging with my emotional self. I have already seen some positive developments in my relationships with others and I can slowly let go of a cluttered mind, to one of peace and clarity.”
——————————————————————————
“Filippa has a very warm and caring approach and because she shared her personal experiences freely, this developed a bond with participants that contributed greatly to the effectiveness of the course.”
—————————————————————————–
“Sharing of personal thoughts and feelings is a challenge and not encouraged in everyday life; thus, it is a credit to Filippa’s approach and high standards that this was done in a safe and confidential way.”
—————————————————————————–
“I felt very comfortable and connected. Filippa managed to create a very safe space for us all to share. I am not sure how she created such an intimate space between a group of (mostly) strangers, yet she did! I think what really made the difference is that Filippa embodied the work, spoke openly with her own examples, and was really an example of a goal to reach. It was a course that definitely met my needs and expectations for growth, connection, fun, learning and so much more!”
