Here’s What We Provide

What is Non Violent Resistance ?
NVR is a relational approach to deal with distressed or distressing behaviour in homes or other settings.

It was initially developed to manage child to adult violence but it has since been used to manage distress in

children and young people who have ASD, ADHD, Anxiety, school refusal etc. 
We have been using NVR successfully for a number of years in various contexts.

Bespoke, in house training is available for parents, professionals or organisations at three different levels. Level 1 training is foundational and provides general awareness of NVR. Level 2 training demonstrates how NVR can be adapted and promotes a deeper understanding of the core principles of NVR. Level 3 training is work based practice that is supported and supervised by us.


NVR supervision can be provided to support practitioners and to develop their skills when supporting individuals, families or using NVR in other settings. 6 hours of supervision annually is required to maintain continued registration with NVR UK. Supervision can be undertaken online or in person with a maximum of 6 people per session.

Customer Testimonials

From the Source

NVR gave me hope when I felt like I had exhausted all other avenues. I felt comfortable and cared for and most importantly I realised that I was not alone.

I can't believe that after being in a classroom for many years it hasnt occurred to me before now to think more about what is behind the behaviour and to spend more time building a relationship. NVR really opened my eyes about what I should be doing as a teacher.

I loved the NVR level 1 training, the fact that NVR is relational and sits well within our nurturing approach made it a perfect fit for our school.
