"Meeting Jenny and learning how to use NVR has been a turning point for our family"
Portrait of Jenny

Jenny Wilkinson Dip.Couns

I am a qualified counsellor, trauma informed family therapist specialising in helping parents create calm in their family using Non-Violent Resistance (NVR).

As an adopter, I struggled to parent my children when their early life trauma overwhelmed them and we were living with daily child-to adult violence. I can wholeheartedly say that NVR helped to save our family. We have now been violent free for many years and we have a wonderful connected and loving relationship with our children. We use the techniques of NVR daily and it has become a way of life.

My own experiences led me to train in NVR so that I could help other parents navigate their families to a place of calm. Being a therapist, with my lived experience of child-to-parent violence, attachment disorder, early life trauma, and blocked care provides me with a unique perspective and empathy which I feel has had a direct impact on the positive outcomes I am experiencing with my parents and carers.

"We were in a very difficult place. We felt like we were living a nightmare that would never end. Our son had daily rages that usually ended with something broken and me covered in bruises. Jenny was able to gently help us through our stress and overwhelm. After 5 weeks the violence had pretty much disappeared and we can now look forward to good times once again." F&A 2020

In October 2020 our family had reached a real lowpoint, our adopted son had started to regularly resort to violent behaviour which was mainly directed to us in the home but had started to occur at school resulting in him being excluded. We started working with Jenny later that month and started to see the results of using the principles of NVR in a matter of weeks. We were more confident and consistent in how we responded to any violence and within 6 weeks the violence had entirely stopped. It is not an exaggeration to say that the NVR course we undertook with Jenny has been life changing for our family. We now have a far happier son and a calmer home.” S&G. Feb 2021
