What our clients have to say about us
Chantal Jongenotter

"I attended the basic Parenting with Compassion course at Zayma because I felt that I was screaming at my children too much and really wanted to change that. The course has brought a lot of positive change. I am even more aware that there is a need behind every behaviour that my children display. Often screaming or losing it is the result of unresolved feelings from the past when needs were unmet. This was a huge eye-opener for me. I also learned the difference between sympathy and empathy and I learned to give empathy by giving space and attention while actively listening to the other person. I also received empathy for a personal situation and noticed how healing that was. I highly recommend this course for everyone!"

"We have tried everything together for 15 years and this is the first time I finally feel we are starting to understand or really listening to what we are feeling. It is really so beautiful to see the effect it has, the sessions. Today before the session he was so stressed and after he was in such a good mood. Thank you so immensely is so beautiful to see how empathic and sweet you can be to us, thank you for doing this amazing work. I also believe in energy, how you can hold space for us and have your intention of us being ok. Also last session I felt how it works, as you hold the space for us Johannes specially feels so safe to express and to heal, beautiful, I had a really good feeling as soon as I saw the work that Astara and you were doing and now I know why."

"The workshops with Astara and Jort continue to deepen my emotional intelligence. Jort his strong point is in working with the group energy and giving words to the individual needs of the participants. Even when judgments arise, you manage to stay in connection because he protects the integrity of everybody in the room. Astara is especially adept at uncovering the true intentions behind your behaviors and then helping you to express the true feelings and needs behind those. Besides that, both trainers are deeply embodying empathic listening. That is why I think you will only truly start to understand the theory of Nonviolent Communication by spending a day with them. I am grateful to continue to learn from them!"
