“Our visual voice matters because the visual empathy we express with it, leads to shared understanding and helps us attune to the audience we communicate with.”
With visual empathy, both the efficacy of the training program as the relevance of it to your specific audience soar.”
I believe we experience more harmony in our communication and have more synergy in collaborations when we get on the same page with ease. Empathic communication is incredibly powerful in creating connection and emotional wellbeing. It helps us establish and maintain trust in our relationships and learning experiences.
Visual Voice, Expression & Inclusion
The element that is frequently missing in our communication, is the expression of our visual voice. Most people who could have taught us in the past how to express ourselves visually, didn’t have the skills themselves. The systemic construct of many parts of our society uses communication and educational approaches that in general don’t stimulate empathy and visual expression in our communication and/or are hardly visually inclusive in learning environments.
My years of experience in the field of visual communication as a design department leader stimulated me to learn and integrate empathy in my work. For the past ten years I have been intensively trained in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and NVC based mediation and conflict coaching. In my Visual Empathy Courses I bring these two fields together because I experience how much empathy helps us understand the audience we communicate with and how visual expression increases the efficacy of training and development activities. This increases both the relevance as the impact of learning experiences.
To articulate the essential skill participants develop through my courses, I came up with the term‘Visual Empathy’. I define it as ‘the visually attuned expression of our understanding, expressed with the intention to create connection with ourselves and others’.
My shortest definition of visual empathy is
“a visually attuned expression or response, expressed with the intention to deepen our understanding and create connection.”

“I liked so much the way Mireille teaches with clarity and generosity. She gives all the tools we need, with details and step by step. It is extremely helpful. A lot of gratitude.”
Hi, I am Mireille van Bremen!
◉ I am a Dutch national with Asian roots and live in Slovenia for 15 years. I am a mom and co-parent of a teenage son who lives with me every other week.
◉ Besides many creative activities, I love improvised vegan cooking with my home grown veggies. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking and daily self-connection practices or simply spend time in silent solitude.
◉ Some fun facts 😊 I have a strong need for visual harmony and am a color freak. I paint as a meditation practice. Depending on the culture or religion, my name Mireille means ‘to look’, ‘to admire’, ‘peace’ and ‘miracle’.
◉ I am keen in simplifying my daily life and I love that for most of my activities, my office fits in a backpack – well, except for when I bring training equipment along for my participants 🙂
◉ To experience more autonomy and flexibility in my work and private life, I switched from working as a design department leader to working more location independent as a trainer & coach, an illustrator, designer and graphic recorder. Since 2022 I also work as a conflict coach and mediator in another business, The Visual Mediator.
◉ Since 2015 I create, design, build and facilitate courses in my online academy and offer in presence training in various countries. All my courses, webinars, training video’s and workshops are visually supported with a combination of flipcharts, visual tools and digital presentations. It’s simply how I communicate … I often hear that is so helpful, clarifying and fun. Would you like to experience that too?

This program speaks to the 8 facets of your training which help you visually attune your communication and facilitation to your audience. That’s something you can make use of regardless of the medium you choose to support your audience in their learning experience.
Oh, and in my view, flipcharts and other visual tools can also be used online and in training video’s! In fact, I believe we especially need visual tools online due to the decreased visual clues we can pick up on in our communication and to make the learning experience more engaging.

“I am always attracted to workshop in which visuals are used. Through them and their beauty, the learning process is stimulated and makes the content easier to remember for the audience. It is a pleasure to me to be able now, to effectively use this aspect in my own workshops. I feel very happy and grateful that Mireille specifically chooses to visually support Nonviolent Communication workshops and simultaneously increases the impact by training visual facilitation skills to trainers.“
