Trainer, Coach, Facilitator, Keynote Speaker
Leslie Williamson has been teaching Nonviolent Communication Skills for the past decade. She began her career in the counselling field 23 years ago, and her passion for helping others overcome the obstacles in their life led to her work as a respected trainer, coach, facilitator and keynote speaker.
Leslie’s life vision is to truly be a person who lives a life of peace. She is joyful when her example inspires others.
Leslie creates a safe environment for individuals to open their minds and hearts, to hear how they might heal themselves, to expand their minds and to walk with more peace in their hearts.
Counsellor Training Institute in Vancouver, Vancouver Community College, Round Lake Treatment Centre (training in the addiction field), Justice Institute in Vancouver, the Nonviolent Communication Organization, and Heart Inspired Presentations—the only training organization that has been licensed and approved by Louise Hay to provide training in her Heal Your Life® work.
Professional Development & Personal Growth
Leslie has travelled all over the world— including Mexico, Arizona, California, South Africa, Maui, and Italy— to attend workshops with spiritual authors and speakers, notably Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Cheryl Richardson, Don Miguel Ruiz (Toltec Shaman), Ainslie McLeod, Ester Hicks, Carolyn Myss, Marshall Rosenberg, Louise Hay, Patricia Crane and Rick Nichols.
Leslie has received—and continues to receive—training from both contemporary institutions and Indigenous teachers. She has become a bridge for this knowledge with the people she serves in Aboriginal communities. Some of her most powerful teachers have been Aboriginal participants of her workshops; these beautiful souls have shared the richness and diversity of their cultural heritage and demonstrated the meaning of courage and resilience.
Leslie has been fortunate to work as a trainer in native organizations across Canada—from Vancouver in the west, to Inuvik in the north, to Kuujjuaq in northern Quebec, and many remote communities in between. Leslie is often invited to return to the organizations in which she has worked. Her passion, rapport and the tools she offers for personal empowerment leave participants inspired to walk their path with more joy.
Leslie is available and pleased to come to your community to present workshops on request. Please contact her to discuss your needs. Requests for references are welcomed.
