About Sarah

Sarah’s Story

I’m a single adoptive mum, passionate about helping other families experiencing difficulties.

I adopted a gorgeous little boy and together we have been on a journey of discovery.  It hasn’t been an easy road, more a roller coaster, but I’m so glad I chose to adopt and I wouldn’t turn the clock back for anything.

During my journey I’ve learnt to support my son with his anxiety and have stopped some of his unacceptable behaviours.  These weren’t because he is a naughty or horrible child because he’s not, but he was very distressed, due to past trauma, and anxious and didn’t know how to show his emotions. Through the use of Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) we have changed our family around and my son is now more confident and understands how to appropriately express his emotions.  It hasn’t been an easy or smooth road, but we’ve come through it and I’m passionate about helping other families do the same.


Sarah is a trained and experienced NVR UK accredited Practitioner and Educator and a qualified Rapid Transformational Therapy Practitioner.

She runs workshops, group programmes and supports parents on an individual basis worldwide.

Sarah is the author of two books. In her first book ‘Adopting Solo’ she shares the first two years of life as a parent. The up and downs and the step learning curve she experienced.

Her second book ‘Connective Parenting – a guide to connecting with your child using the NVR approach’ shares the NVR approach with parents in a simple to read guide. It is recommended by a number of professionals working with parents and Sarah regularly receives feedback on how helpful the book is for parents.

Both books are available on amazon, in paperback or on kindle.
