CNVC Certified Trainer from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Rachelle Lamb is the president of Mindful Communication based in Victoria, BC, Canada. Her lifelong interest in personal development and relationship dynamics, along with her ability to address the unique needs of her audiences, consistently produces powerful learning experiences.

She found Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process to be so transformational that she trained with Dr. Rosenberg and was later certified in 2002 by the Center for Nonviolent Communication.

She has been interviewed by newspapers, radio and television and has been invited to co-train at International Intensive Trainings (IIT) with Dr. Rosenberg. She is the author and publisher of ’Steps To Conscious Living' (2000) and NVC Communication Basics: A Concise Overview of Nonviolent Communication (2003).
She is available for keynotes and in-house trainings.
