About me

Magdalena Malinowska-Berggren Empathic Way O mnie

My name is Magdalena Malinowska-Berggren. I support people in creating satisfying lives and relationships (personal and professional) through individual trainings and group workshops deepening communication skills. I help in implementing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in relationships, companies and non-governmental organisations. I am living in Stockholm with my Swedish husband.

Nonviolent Communication – a concept developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg – is a way of communication helping to get in real contact with another person by finding solutions meeting the needs of both sides. It allows you to improve your relationships by changing the language you use, by empathy and honest self-expression.

My offer is for those who appreciate high-quality contact with people, understanding themselves and others and acting in accordance with their values. I know from experience that changing the language that we use every day, greatly affects our relationships and quality of life. I invite you to explore with me the feelings and needs and to look for strategies that help to fulfil those needs. It is helpful to know that one need can be met in a thousand different ways.

The content of my trainings and workshops is adapted to each target group. I have experience in working with managers, youth workers, teachers and adults interested in developing their knowledge and skills in interpersonal communication.

Training courses and individual sessions can be conducted both in Polish and English.
