For Professionals 

Welcome the home page for Professionals

I’m passionate about the NVR approach, both from a parenting perspective and the wider perspective. 

Working with parents over the last few years I’ve seen the impact this approach can have on families and I am keen to spread the word amongst those working with parents.

There is a bit of a myth floating around that NVR is purely for those experiencing violence from their children and/or only for older children. 

This simply isn’t the case.  Without a doubt NVR can be very effective in these situations, but I work with many families with young children and those who are not experiencing violence and see very positive results. 

NVR is an approach to parenting that supports the parents and helps to build connection between the parent and child.  It can work for anyone because it’s base is in building relationships, so whatever the families needs we can usually change things for the better. 

The earlier families are introduced to the approach the better.  Waiting until they are in crisis is harder for everyone.

This approach works in all family settings.  I work with kinship carers, foster carers, adoptive parents and birth parents. 

The approach can also work within school settings, residential settings and any environment supporting young people.

The NVR approach is different to ‘traditional’ parenting and is increasingly popular.
