I first heard about NVC in the summer of 2003. By the end of February 2004 I had spent 10 days with Marshall at the top of a mountain in Switzerland and I determined in myself to be like one of those NVC Trainers he was working with. I loved the ease of connection between them all, the fun and the depth- a delicious combination for me. I immediately found the NVC community in the UK and spent as much time as possible learning with them and other trainers around Europe and also the US. I became a Certified Trainer in 2006 and have since that time have shared NVC both publicly and within my role as an Educational Psychologist. I moved into working with the English Speaking European Assessor Team in the summer of 2015 and found a space to learn, live and share NVC with integrity and in collaboration. I love to support people to grow and develop their skills as practitioners, trainers and human beings doing their best.
The English Speaking European Assessor Team- ESEAT, work to build community at our assessment events and we use our website to share how we do this www.nvcassessment.eu. The assessor team consists of Towe Widstrand, Gina Lawrie, Shona Cameron, Thera Balvers and Ania Mills. We also work with Assessors in Training
Areas of Interest
Shona trained in the UK as a teacher, and later as an Educational Psychologist. Shona’s first training in NVC was in Switzerland with Marshall Rosenberg in 2004. From this point on she underwent further training with Marshall and other trainers including working with her mentor, Gina Lawrie co creator of the Dance Floors. Her most significant training came in ‘how to make Nonviolent Communication sound real’ from the time she spent working with teenagers in schools. She was often the only person in the room using Nonviolent Communication and now trusts that this is only thing needed to witness change. She is fascinated by the power of presence and empathy.
Shona has been an Assessor with the English Speaking European Assessor Team since 2016.
She supports via coaching and mentoring and is passionate about depth, welcoming all of ourselves and working in teams to grow NVC in the world.

"In the summer of 2003 someone talked to me about NVC and a few months later I went to meet Marshall Rosenberg in Switzerland. I have been a CNVC Certified Trainer since 2006.
In November 2016 I received feedback that my skills and practice were recognised as such that I can call myself an Assessor of NVC. I now am privileged to spend time with those wanting to move towards certification in NVC.
I love to have fun and play and am known for my clarity and ability to give feedback.
I work “in the flow” of Empathy and see no giver or receiver, no fixer or healer, simply, life moving through us.
I share Nonviolent Communication all over the world as I love to explore the universality of this work and delight in exploring what connect us, games, silliness, food, the desire to contribute to one another and dancing."
My vision is for all human beings to realise their true potential. Where life is lived in freedom from conditioning and where barriers between us all are no longer holding us back from seeing each other as human. Where we live in harmony with our planet and have access to our natural creativity and joy.
My mission is to live life as an experiment to find peace and freedom. To live a nonviolent revolution from the inside out and to inspire others to do the same
I work with people to support them to integrate Nonviolent Communication. I offer retreats and trainings and one to one work all over the world.
