Michelle McCarthy - NVR Accredited Practitioner. NVR South Parent Practitioners
Myself and two other parents built NVR South Parent Practitioners, to support those struggling with challenging behaviours from their child or children in the home, school and community.
I have been working as an NVR Parent Practitioner in Southampton and Hampshire, having attended an NVR group in 2014 when struggling with my daughter’s extreme behaviour and going on to train as an accredited practitioner.
Although working for 20 years in banking before I had my third child, I began to volunteer in schools after seeing my daughter struggle every day and then went on to train as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and School Librarian. I am proud to be a member of the steering group for NVR UK and have a special interest in Parent Participation and the Child’s Voice within NVR.
Like my colleagues, I use NVR strategies every day with my daughter who is amazing! I know that our lived experiences help to break down barriers and give other parents hope.
