My name is Julie Hamisi and together with my colleague and friend, Helen McEleny we offer NVR Informed Training for professionals within CAMHS, Social Care and training organisations. Our NVR Informed Training is delivered to NVR UK Accredited Standards. After many years of working as a nurse, midwife and health visitor I began to specialise in children’s mental health and in 2013 qualified as a Systemic Family Psychotherapist and subsequently as a supervisor. I am accredited by AFT and a member of UKCP. My passion for NVR began in 2008 after attending the NVR conference and being inspired by listening to parents who had been part of the NVR programme. It is this passion that we hope to share with colleagues within our training, our aim is for participants to leave on Day 4 feeling inspired and confident to share the ideas. I hold onto and am influenced by Haim Omer who said that if we really want to help children, then we have to enable their parents to feel heard and understood and it is this message that I wish to take forward.

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.

I trained as a Family Therapist in 2009 and started my NVR journey in 2016 where I trained as a practitioner and trainer. Since that time I have gone on to train many staff working in an adolescent inpatient unit with aggressive and violent young people. NVR informed practices has supported the inpatient unit to create a culture of inclusion, understanding and acceptance along side the importance of persistence and parental presence. NVR tools and techniques will continue to support staff working in challenging environments. I am currently in the process of setting up and running a day service programme for anorexia nervous and creating another NVR informed system. I am Lucky enough to have an opportunity to expand the realms of NVR and what it can achieve by becoming an active member of NVR UK and uniting with colleagues and parents to spread the philosophy of NVR.
