I was first introduced to NVC in 2006 and have been fascinated and learning ever since. I became a certified trainer (CNVC) in 2017. I am actively involved in creating the NVC community in Scotland by delivering training, organizing community events and collaborations and supporting individuals, couples and practice groups.
Originally from England, I have lived in Scotland since 1989. I am married, with 3 children all now grown up. For over 15 years I have worked part-time as a Community Development Worker in Gorbals, Glasgow and before that with families experiencing poverty at Braendam Family House.
I see NVC as having huge potential to bring about social change. I am drawn to be part of that; longing for a more equal, power-with, life-serving society. For me and others, the capacity to create change depends on inner clarity and inner resources; I believe we cannot achieve one without the other. I have 15 years of experience of using NVC in a community that experiences structural powerlessness and have learned the importance of ‘empathizing before you educate’ and trying to find the delicate balance between the two. I also see how NVC can be used to alter the structures that impact people, like creating a culture of feedback and of speaking truth with care in organizations, in the way meetings are run, and in supporting people to liberate themselves from the effect of the systems they have grown up within. I see every time we enter a conversation as an opportunity for social change.
I aim to be an example of how I live; a minimum of loving lightness to all those I interact with, to have a constant curiosity and a willingness to speak my truth with care.
