A bit about me:-

I am a former Registered general and psychiatric nurse, a candidate for CNVC Certification, a graduate of Embodying NVC,  and an accredited Embodying NVC Coach. I have had the privilege to train with international teachers Dominic Barter, Kit Miller, Leo Sofer, Liv Larsson, Robert Gonzales, Vikki Pearce, and Karl Steyaert.

My experience working in general and psychiatric nursing has contributed to my deep empathy; and through my yoga and meditation practises, I have developed a deep connection with myself and an authentic presence with others. I’ve been told that I bring creativity, emotional intelligence, and a natural empathy to my coaching and teaching. My love of colour and playfulness influences my trainings, which I call “Play-Shops”. Currently I’m working on a collaborative projects developing NVC events in South Australia, and designing jewellery and learning aids, to support NVC education. I love long distance hiking, and would like to facilitate NVC learning opportunities which involve hiking and camping.

I live in an Ecovillage 40km south of Adelaide, Australia, I’ve been married for 27yrs, and I’m a mother of a gorgeous son. In Aldinga, I facilitate Practice groups, Foundation trainings, Restorative Circles and offer coaching one on one, and for couples.

Private sessions

I offer one on one coaching.
In a series of sessions, we work towards a goal; while learning /honing core NVC skills. I aim to make myself redundant, as you develop competence and confidence using these skills in everyday life.
I also work with couples.
I always see you individually first before we come together, and I find that around 6 sessions works well. Together we work towards a goal for your relationship,  and sessions can include supported dialogue, enemy image work, supported empathy, and roleplays.
please note that these sessions differ from counselling; as I teach NVC skills as we go, and also suggest homework.
