Welcome!

I support organisations, communities and businesses to collaborate, share power, have generative conversations, make inclusive decisions, move through conflict, build restorative systems, integrate feedback and co-create a world where we can all thrive.

Are you wanting to work together in a more inclusive and effective way?

We can create spaces to really hear each other, sense deeper into what is emerging and make inclusive decisions that take into account all needs. This might include…

Recent projects include GM Homelessness Action Network, Bury Elephants Trail, Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary, Opal Advocacy (Oldham), Todmorden Makery, Space for Nature (Bury), GM Transformation Lab, Derbyshire off grid community, Methodist Central Hall, XRUK Transforming Conflict, NVC-UK Conflict Transformation, Street Support Network & As We Are.

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

Viv, I so loved your facilitation and the planning and timing and the sense of inclusion. openness and hope, which very much rested in your holding the group with such care, thank you.” – Workshop Participant 2021

Developing more effective ways to collaborate frees up more capacity to respond to our deepest and most important challenges, allowing new and creative ideas to emerge. Beyond struggling with capacity, burnout and ongoing conflicts, or falling back to hierarchical power, there are ways to work together that are more effective, inclusive, restorative and enjoyable. Using tools like Deep Democracy (LDD), Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Restorative Circles, ULab, Art of Hosting and more, we co-design a process that meets the specific vision, needs and power dynamics of the group.

If you are interested to explore how i might support you or your community, please get in touch.

*NEW*: I also collaborate in creating intentional spaces for radical acceptance and inclusion – moving beyond society’s stories of right and wrong to reconnect with our truth. This is deep and challenging work that we want to make accessible to all. To find out more or support this work, join us at asweare.info.
