I Believe

My purpose is to help women and men give voice to the full spectrum of their experience as a lover – in body, mind, heart and spirit.

About Bonnie Gabriel

My work is designed to

  • Help help couples give voice to the depth, richness, subtlety and variety of their romantic and sensual feelings.
  • Guide singles in ho to use words to attract and hold the interest of a new partner and build emotional intimacy.
  • Teach men and women, regardless of their relationship status, to use the powerful tool of Compassioante Communication (also known as NVC) to increase understanding, resolve conflicts and deepen connection.. 


     What drew me to this field?

I’ve always resonated with the beauty of sound – sensual voices, delicate poetry, exquisite melodies, eloquent and expressive lyrics, etc. This passion, combined with my training as a counseling psychologist and educator inspired me to explore the many ways that lovers heighten their desire and deepen their intimacy through words and voice tone. So, several years ago, I began conducting workshops on the topic for such diverse organizations as The Learning Annex, The National Sexuality Symposium, U.C. Berkeley, City College of San Francisco, California Business Women’s Conference, Mensa, Whole Life Expo and numerous educational centers and community groups.

My Bantam/Random House book, The Fine Art of Erotic Talk: How to Entice, Excite and Enchant Your Lover with Words. has been excerpted in Cosmopolitan, Fitness Magazine, Woman’s Own and Complete Woman. Random House recently released an updated version of The Fine Art of Erotic Talk, in both print and electronic book formats.)

I also created a 14 page manual, “Your Daily Verbal Aphrodisiac” and a mini-manual entitled, Verbal Charisma: How to Attract a Lover and Pave the Way to a Passionate Connection

I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from  New York University, and have been a member of the Associaton for Humanistic Psycology, the American Society of  Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama and The American Counseling Association.
