NVR Practitioner

I took part in the Non Violent Resistance program when struggling with my own child’s challenging behaviours 10 years ago. I have followed a pathway to train and qualify as an accredited practitioner in 2015, building NVR South in 2018 with 2 other parent practitioners and supporting many other parents as I once was. As an NVR lived experience practitioner I go into the local community and teach the program to other parents in groups including Schools, NHS settings and community groups, also running online and 1 to 1 sessions. I am currently membership secretary for NVR UK and have been part of the committee for 2 Years, I am so looking forward to the new NVR UK project and being part of the NVR UK Presence hub.

I have been practicing NVR since 2008 and am a founding member of NVR UK, currently acting as Chair. I am highly experienced in both group and individual NVR practice and have been training NVR practitioners since 2014 in health, social care, educational and youth work settings. My special areas of interest are NVR in schools and helping to develop parent and practitioner networks. I love the way NVR is coming to be called 'connecting authority'; a New Vision on Relationships.

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.
