Linda Rysenbry

  • My languages: English
  • My location(s): Australia (Sydney)
  • I offer mentoring/coaching by phone (yes/no): yes
  • I offer mentoring/coaching face-to-face (yes/no): yes
  • My fees for mentoring/coaching: AUD$100 per hour. (Discount of up to 25% available for people teaching/sharing NVC.)
  • 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 initiated and currently coordinate the Australian NVC Circle which is strengthening local NVC community and activites and I participate in the Regional NVC Circle for South East Asia and Oceania. I have led groups in NVC trainings, given presentations and group coaching sessions.
  • The type of mentoring/coaching I offer is: offered over a series of sessions and is suited to those wishing to strengthen their self connection, intimate relationships or family connection. I especially enjoy working with people who have knowledge and experience with NVC, although that is not essential. I find that most everyone learns (or deepens) NVC as we work together with whatever it is that you are facing in life at present.
  • More about me: I am also accredited as a Journey Therapist and have a lengthy background including leadership in business and corporate management along with mothering 3 teenagers. For more information, visit my website: www.nowrelate.com (I offer a series of inspirational notes via email) also visit www.nvcaustralia.com
