 +
* My languages: English
 +
* My location: San Francisco, CA, USA
 +
* I offer mentoring/coaching by phone: Yes
 +
* I offer mentoring/coaching face-to-face: Yes
 +
* My fees for mentoring/coaching: by phone (for individuals and couples)- first hour no fee, then $845 for 10 sessions, or $395 for 4 sessions, or $120 for single sessions //// in person (for individuals and couples)- first hour no fee, then $995 for 10 sessions, $495 for 4 sessions, $150 for single sessions (see www.newtbailey.com/services.html for more details, all negotiable)
 +
* My level of NVC experience: I received extensive training, initially in NVC mediation, then later in all aspects of NVC, from John Kinyon (co-founder of BayNVC), Ike Lasater, and Marshall Rosenberg starting in 2005. I now co-lead workshops and retreats with John Kinyon, in addition to leading my own weekly practice groups and classes, both in NVC and NVC mediation. All of my work since 2006 has been in NVC training, coaching, mediation, or facilitation. Since 2009 I've done a lot of work with Miki Kashtan (co-founder of BayNVC).
 +
* The type of mentoring/coaching I am most interested in doing is: I particularly enjoy the NVC mediation model approach to working with couples - starting with pre-mediation sessions where I work with each person separately. Seeing connection grow, and difficult topics navigated with much greater ease than people expect, is a great joy.
 +
* More about me: I have appeared on the "Conflict Hotline" (youtube.com/newtbailey) TV show with Miki Kashtan many times, and in the movie "The Truth" (thetruthmovie.tv). I am a stage performer - a skill which massively supports my ability to help people through role-play. I've been a speaker at fundraisers for Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, a volunteer NVC trainer at San Quentin State Prison in California, and sole NVC trainer for an academic study on the effect of NVC training on parolees in a drug rehabilitation center. I've also led workshops, facilitated meetings, and/or mediated conflicts in a wide variety of educational, non-profit, and for-profit organizations.

 +
* My level of NVC experience: I am certified by CNVC as a NVC Trainer.  I've been practicing NVC since 2002. For three years I have been focussing on bringing NVC to people in private sessions ranging from coaching to therapy, mediation to facilitated dialogues. I value creating a safe space for what is alive in relationships to unfold and heal.  I appreciate the priviledge of supporting people to find love and honesty in times of challenge.

I have led groups in NVC trainings, given presentations and group coaching sessions.

For instance, Feb of this year (2007), I facilitated a project planning meeting of inter-religious clergy for 4 faiths (Buddhist Monks, Hindu Iyars, Muslim Malawis and Christen Priests) who are doing peace projects together in a very polarized and divided war situation in Sri Lanka. In June, I helped a couple in UK create an alternative wedding ceremony incorporating their two different spiritual traditions and ideals and facilitated the ceremony which was described by guests as "unforgettable" and "most meaningful wedding they have attended".

  • I offer mentoring/coaching by phone: Yes
  • I offer mentoring/coaching face-to-face: Yes
  • My fees for mentoring/coaching: by phone (for individuals and couples)- first hour no fee, then $845 for 10 sessions, or $395 for 4 sessions, or $120 for single sessions //// in person (for individuals and couples)- first hour no fee, then $995 for 10 sessions, $495 for 4 sessions, $150 for single sessions (see www.newtbailey.com/services.html for more details, all negotiable)
  • My level of NVC experience: I received extensive training, initially in NVC mediation, then later in all aspects of NVC, from John Kinyon (co-founder of BayNVC), Ike Lasater, and Marshall Rosenberg starting in 2005. I now co-lead workshops and retreats with John Kinyon, in addition to leading my own weekly practice groups and classes, both in NVC and NVC mediation. All of my work since 2006 has been in NVC training, coaching, mediation, or facilitation. Since 2009 I've done a lot of work with Miki Kashtan (co-founder of BayNVC).
  • The type of mentoring/coaching I am most interested in doing is: I particularly enjoy the NVC mediation model approach to working with couples - starting with pre-mediation sessions where I work with each person separately. Seeing connection grow, and difficult topics navigated with much greater ease than people expect, is a great joy.
  • More about me: I have appeared on the "Conflict Hotline" (youtube.com/newtbailey) TV show with Miki Kashtan many times, and in the movie "The Truth" (thetruthmovie.tv). I am a stage performer - a skill which massively supports my ability to help people through role-play. I've been a speaker at fundraisers for Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, a volunteer NVC trainer at San Quentin State Prison in California, and sole NVC trainer for an academic study on the effect of NVC training on parolees in a drug rehabilitation center. I've also led workshops, facilitated meetings, and/or mediated conflicts in a wide variety of educational, non-profit, and for-profit organizations.

For instance, Feb of this year (2007), I facilitated a project planning meeting of inter-religious clergy for 4 faiths (Buddhist Monks, Hindu Iyars, Muslim Malawis and Christen Priests) who are doing peace projects together in a very polarized and divided war situation in Sri Lanka. In June, I helped a couple in UK create an alternative wedding ceremony incorporating their two different spiritual traditions and ideals and facilitated the ceremony which was described by guests as "unforgettable" and "most meaningful wedding they have attended".
