Gayano Shaw BA (Hons) Anthropology. CNVC Certified Trainer.
I have spent the last 7 years inspired by and immersed in the invitation of NVC principles. This has included creating, offering and supporting a number of NVC-based events throughout the UK. Alongside my deep enthusiasm for the principles of NVC I hold a deep commitment to creating and offering events to support individuals and communities in developing compassionate connections. In the past 3 years I have organised, hosted and participated in 3 major international NVC trainings with between 50 – 100 participants. Presently, I am working with families and young people in our local community as well as being the UK coordinator for an EU 2 year funded project to provide Needs-Based Coaching for individuals, businesses and communities across Europe in which I am working in partnership with organisations in 3 other EU countries.
Peter Kinsey BA (Hons) Architecture
For the last 13 year I have run my own tree resources company after a background in Architecture. I found NVC late in 2009 since then I have been actively involved in community camps, NVC retreats and workshops. I hold space for one practice group and attend another. I am constantly looking for ways to share NVC whether this is family, friend, the NVC community or online. GSE is another step in this vital development.
