What people say about kay:

To make it short – he is for me one of the four trainers in whole nvc trainers community I most admire and respect for all those qualities he has!

Merike Kahju (Estonia)

I experience Kay as being a man of deep integrity, able to be honest about his feelings and emotions, confusions. Being with him certainly meets my need for connection, openness, friendliness, honesty and integrity. He is, I find, very skilled at being able to say “Bullshit” to people and stay in open and exploratory dialogue.

Jayaraja (UK)

I really enjoyed his presence, his patience, his humour (Swedish style), his examples, his experience. I could feel coherence in what he said, and he teaches according to what he is.
