Sofie Bakker is an internationally certified NVC trainer. She met NVC 10 years ago, participated in about 70 workshopdays with national and international trainers, and started teaching herself in 2010. She aims to transfer practical insights and skills, that can help you to create a lively connection with familymembers, co-workers, friends, children en neighbours in daily life, no matter what is being said or done.

Ingrid Plag (Managing partner at MDF Training & Consultancy):

“Sofie is a passionate trainer in non violent communication. She knows how to design a training session that sticks from beginning to end. She is effective in helping participants to translate the concepts of NVC into practise. Through her interaction with participants, she creates trust in the group that stimulates learning & sharing. It’s always a pleasure to attending the monthly NVC sessions with Sofie.”

Joris Claes (Chief Engagment Officer at ecoNVERGE) :

“Sofie has an inspiring approach to communication and dialogue across generations, engaging feelings and needs of self and others.
I warmly recommend Sofie Bakker for her natural talents in opening up the minds of a diverse group of people. A refreshing approach in adapting to the changes taking place in our environment, with attention to our true values and needs to collaborate and live in harmony with others, whether family, friends or colleagues.
With true confidence Sofie facilitates group interactivity and enables participants to share their passions, enthusiasm and emphaty in learning new ways of dialogue.
Sofie’s approach in visualization of both content and explanation to her audience is a true reflextion of mastering and practicing the course material. This is facilitation at best, showing the example of the course itself.”
