Testimonials

Work as solo NVC facilitator:

“Roz is a gifted and thoughtful trainer.  Roz is organised and straightforward in her approach which I found so useful, she managed to make a complex topic easy to understand and so I could envisage how to integrate it into my work.”  Dr. Maureen Sier, Director Interfaith Scotland, October 2018

“I found Roz’s training hugely helpful and clear in the way that it explained some of the key themes and concepts of NVC. She gave me new things to think about as well as a deeper understanding of aspects that I have already been introduced to. This training has certainly given me more motivation to develop my skills in this area further in terms of piquing my interest but she is also a joy to work with.” Participant, NVC In Transforming Hate Speech training, October 2018

‘I would highly recommend Roz’s NVC training – I very much enjoyed her personalised approach and found the training content insightful both from a personal and professional perspective, superb!’ Mohamed Omar, workshop participant, October 2018

“Thank you so much for the training yesterday. It was really interesting and helpful for me. I liked how you let us all chip in with our stories and examples, but held the focus and moved on when necessary. I feel much more aware of needs – mine and others’ – after your workshop, as well as more connected to the other people who were there. If anyone was wondering whether to have a go at one of your workshops, I would say go for it.”     Marian, Intro training day participant January 2018

“Roz was a great facilitator and teacher. She was clear about what we were learning in each section of the day. She used our material/ stories which helped us engage with the sometimes difficult techniques. She combined good humour and calm. Thank you.”       Susie, Workshop day participant January 2018

“Roz’s manner and approach was relaxed, supportive, and non-judgmental, and she managed to convey the feeling of genuine interest and encouragement to me and also convey her enthusiasm and interest in NVC.”      Course Participant 2016

“Great openness and encouraging presence balanced with quiet authority and professionalism. Just right!”    Course Participant 2017

“I took Roz’s afternoon session on expressing one’s needs, and her simple 3-step approach especially the point about four sets of ears really hit the spot. So succinct, realistic, and altogether a Big “Ah-Ha” that made total sense for the particular learning-situation in my own life I was struggling with. Excellent! ”   Course Participant 2017

“I have enjoyed working with Roz. I found the three sessions so far have been supportive to my own process, as well as supportive in holding a space where it was easier to connect – to hear and feel heard. I felt relaxed at Roz’s place, and it always seemed like Roz had prepared with care and was also willing to meet us where we were that day – a nice balance. Thanks ”         Couples Mediation Participant, (prefers to remain anonymous), October 2017

Feedback from ‘Whole Person Leadership Day’ – hosted and facilitated over all by Roz Adams with contributions from 5 other workshop leaders. January 2018:

“There’s something there that I feel everybody could benefit from – time and space to self- reflect, self- evaluate. Also just some really important personal and professional lessons that I feel could enhance the lives of others – highly recommend!” 

“Space and time to reflect. Useful introduction to some useful techniques and systems”

“Very innovative, alternative and thought-provoking. Jogged me out of ‘business as usual”

“Different approach to safe leadership, good participation and thought-provoking input”

“Pretty unique and probing perspective on whole person approach. Huge opportunity for personal development and insights”

“I loved that the form of the day and the way it was delivered fitted its content. It was really lovely to be led by “whole people” in all their complex humanity rather than traditional authoritative trainers. This was unique in my experience of workshops and lectures”

One to One Work:

“I can’t recommend Roz’s support highly enough. From the very beginning, at the outset of our first session, I felt listened to and understood which helped get to the core of a few key aspects in my life I have been struggling with. With Roz’s heartfelt and authentic guidance, we were able to identify the underlying needs that were triggering my unhelpful behaviour patterns and work together to devise more proactive strategies, while also delving a bit deeper with some core belief work. Since those sessions, things have changed for the better and I am handling situations in a much healthier way. Roz’s insight coupled with her warmth has been so valuable and, moving forward, I feel comforted to know I can turn to her as and when faced with difficulties that require additional support and a helping hand.” Kat 2018
