My NVC journey - that started in 2006 with a desire to find the language of compassion with my young children - has brought me to this place in 2021: to be welcomed into the international NVC community as a certified trainer.
I live in the Top of the South Island of Aoteaora-New Zealand in a community with six households, where NVC has been the glue of our co-operative living for the last 17 years.
I am one of the facilitators of Ruby Retreat; a recurring monthly 5-day retreat for people who are in recovery from addiction.
As a certified Primal Health Coach, I bring the skills of NVC into my health coaching sessions.
I am the treasurer for the NVC Charitable Trust, which has the lofty ambition of “Compassionate Connection Thriving in Aotearoa-New Zealand”.
