In this world where we try to make sense of ourselves and the life happening around us I choose to contribute to increased clarity, peace and understanding.

To our global community, I offer inclusive workshops. You are welcome here regardless of how you identify or how much money you have.

Whether this kind of thing is completely new to you, and perhaps a little scary, or you’ve come across it before, you’ll feel supported and welcomed and may benefit deeply from the workshop environment. I regularly deliver workshops such as…

Foundation Trainings (covering all the basics of NVC)
Weekly practice groups
Empathy cafes
Unpacking our judgements
Decision making
How to ask for what we want
Saying ‘no’

Below you’ll find details of my upcoming workshops and events, both online and in-person.

In person events are usually held over looking the Dearness Valley, near Durham City here at Abundant Earth.

What to expect at a workshop

To suit different learning styles we will use hand outs, flip charts, Q&As. There will be whole group work, small groups and pairs. We will mostly learn by practising the NVC tools with each other. I recommend you bring a notebook.


 I openly welcome people from all backgrounds and identities.  If you want to speak to me about any concerns you have around your inclusion in a training please get in touch.


Immerse yourself in the natural world and receive daily coaching.

Take time out of the business of life, slow down, rest and reconnect to yourself whilst nestled in the beauty of the natural world.

These retreats will be held skilfully by professional practitioners of Nonviolent Communication and other wisdom schools. Our days together will have a framework to hold you whilst giving plenty of time for silent solitude and reflection.

Small is beautiful (Shumacher) and so our retreats will be for no more than 10.  We will live with the land, cook together on fires, sleep close to the earth and remember our inner wisdom.
