“I have experienced Penny Wassman's depth of knowledge in Nonviolent Communication and can say without question that her dedication, knowledge and ability to share this work will enable those who are intent on enhancing their connection with others to enrich those communications, both personal and professional.”
Individual Sessions:Individual Sessions currently encompass about 50% of my outreach. As mentor to aspiring CNVC trainer candidates and assessor for the global organization, the Center for Nonviolent Communication, I currently serve clients throughout North and South America. Most of this work is offered by phone. I also serve individuals, couples and families wishing to incorporate NVC more fully into their lives and relationships. These latter sessions may be arranged either by phone or in person at my residence. To arrange for an individual session, please contact me directly at email@example.com
“For several months, Penny met with my ex-partner and I while we were dealing with the painful process of redefining our relationship. She helped transform our despair and confusion by clarifying feelings that were alive in us, needs we wanted met, and strategies that fostered increased honesty and harmony in our relationship. She supported us in ways that deeply met needs for mutuality, empathy, growth, and healing. I believe the tenderness and trust that (my ex-partner) and I experience in our friendship and co-parenting connection today has much to do with the quality of support and guidance we experienced with Penny many months ago. Penny, it seems, simply makes it easier for people to remember how much they yearn to love and to be loved, and to behave in ways that are most likely to manifest that.”
