Non Violent Communication” (NVC) is a “language of Empathy” that helps us to transform old patterns of defensiveness and aggressiveness into compassion and empathy and to improve the quality of all of our relationships. Studying and practicing NVC creates a foundation for learning about ourselves and our relationships in every moment, and helps us to remain focused on what is happening right here, right now. Although it is a model for communication, NVC helps us to realize just how important connection is in our lives. In fact, having the intention to connect with ourselves and others is one of the most important goals of practicing and living NVC. We live our lives from moment to moment, yet most of the time we are on autopilot, reacting out of habit rather than out of awareness and presence of mind. By creating a space for attention and respect in every moment, NVC helps create a pathway and a practice that is accessible and approachable.

Manuella Arulnayagam


Manuella Arulnayagam studied engineering and worked for over 10 years in the cosmetic industry as a training development manager. During these years, she started to grow deep interest in soft skills. That’s when she met NVC. It was a revelation, as though it had been hiding inside her all these years, just waiting to come out.

In addition to her daily work, she began to study NVC intensively with the purpose to become a certified trainer and to transmit this way of living to others. She has now been using it for years in her everyday life, at work and at home, with managers, colleagues, reports, friends, family and children.

Today, she has a deep willingness to help others improve their interpersonal skills through the use of NVC.
