Practices to build and restore relationships.
Online & In-person with Liesbet Bickett
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow [human]; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
― Herman Melville
Coach, Trainer, Consultant
As a professional coach, trainer and consultant, I have been using Restorative Practices and Non-Violent Communication to support communities, businesses, families and individuals since 2012.
All communication, even when uncomfortable and difficult, is an opportunity to learn about the self and others, to grow as a compassionate being. Communication is a chance to create trust and deepen connection in relationships. When you have clarity about what matters most to you, and are able to express yourself with compassion and respect for others and yourself, magic happens.
Together I work with my clients to communicate with clarity, compassion, meaning, purpose,
willingness, and to develop the capacity to listen to others even when their message is hard to hear.
What I Specialize In
Healing in the Midst of Harm
Liesbet's workshops have enabled me to reach so many insights with my relationships, and in understanding myself. She guides me through self-conversation (and self-connection) so that I can see issues with much more clarity. I feel deep relief when I reach this place. And it is amazing that the wisdom is often within me! Liesbet's guidance helps me to reach that wisdom when I can't seem to connect with it by myself.
After 6 years of NVC practice I finally feel like compassionate communication comes from within me! And it’s because of Liesbet’s practice circle. Weekly practice with folks who are also practicing and the gentle wisdom and guidance of Liesbet, has literally changed my life, my relationships -- and even helped me shift gears to take on a communications job thats very aligned with my values, one that I otherwise would have hid from.
Liesbet has been invaluable to me, and others in our groups, in terms of her teachings, but also in her personal style of being honest, open, fun and nurturing, which tends to accompany her guidance and support. She is one of the most open-minded, nonjudgmental, and accepting healers I have encountered. I believe it is her ability to facilitate a safe, trusting, and respectful environment, coupled with her knowledge and flexible, yet organized, structure which has contributed to her proven track record of success.

CONSCIOUS COMMUNICATION COACHING
Inspired and informed by Non-Violent Communication and the social science of Restorative Practices, Conscious Communication peels back the layers of the English language teaching you how to use your words to communicate the truth of your experience rather than the stories in your head.
