Hi, I’m Filip Malinowski, coach for communication working on the basis of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). „Wir-Raum“ means „we-space“ and is the place, where we can be conneced with each other regardless, what we feel or need.
How I work with NVC
ACCESS TO FEELINGS & NEEDS: I support you in recognizing your feelings by exploring the underlying needs through concrete situations. In doing so, I convey the basics of NVC: attention, personal responsibility, transparency, curiosity, vulnerability acceptance and appreciation.
COMMUNICATION: How can you authentically articulate what is going on inside you, what you need, and at the same time be in harmonious connection with others? Together we build up access to your true feelings and experience and we practice an emotional language that expresses that authentically.
STRATEGIES: We look at your behavior patterns and reflect on them.
INFLUENCES: If you wish, we can also look at your past to see if there are episodes that are affecting your actions and communication now. In doing so, we can uncover the unaddressed feelings and needs from your past, giving you a new perspective. Together we create corrective experience.
MY STYLE: In my coaching sessions I listen to you carefully and create a safe-space, so you can really be yourself. I’ll offer interpretations, ask questions, structure your experiences.
What inspires me is also the social psychology of Erich Fromm, the communication psychology of Friedemann Schulz von Thun, Person Centered Therapy by Carl Rogers, Emotional Focused Therapy by Leslie Greenberg and the Far Eastern philosophy towards life, mindfulness, which I practice with Vipassana meditation. Humor is essential part of my sessions.
Was moves me about NVC:
It’s the most effective method I’ve come across to achieve harmonious connections with others, inner peace and clarity. It gives me joy to pass this on!
