What people said about the May 2019 Foundation Training:

“Highly skilful, inclusive and encouraging” “Extremely informative and helpful. Delivered with obvious care and authenticity” “competent and thoughtful facilitator” “good balance between theory and practice” “definitely recommend it, fantastic life skills, should be taught in schools”

Testimonials from previous trainings:

“Roz is a brilliant facilitator and used context-relevant examples in her training which was incredibly useful in demonstrating how NVC could be used in the work I do. The training was very well structured and planned and meant that I got a lot out of the day. Would highly recommend!” –  Camas Team Member May 2019

“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.”                                                                                                              Workshop participant , 2018

“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

Whole Person Leadership Day

In 2021 a group of Co-Facilitators may offer a second Whole Person Leadership Day, after the success of 2019’s pilot.

“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!” 

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

“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”
