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.
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.
