Changing controlling and challenging behaviour

Do you have a controlling child who challenges your authority? Do you often feel manipulated? Have you been on the receiving end of swearing, aggression and even violence?

Gill Tree,  a parent through adoption, whose son was all of the above(!), followed a programme called Non-Violent Resistance  (NVR) and became so convinced by it, she trained in it professionally.

The aim of NVR is to re-stablish parental presence in the childs’ mind, develop a co-operative, more harmonious relationship and for the balance of power to be addressed.

By signing up to a programme of NVR, you will learn the principles of NVR; an empowering and non-physical method for parents and carers to manage and connect with children to reduce and eradicate challenging behaviour. 

The NVR parenting principles are excellent for any family but this is a definite must if you find you are feeling, helpless, hopeless, overwhelmed, anxious  and even bullied by your child.

Gill will mentor you to put into practice some of the principles including;

  • De-escalating conflict during emotionally charged incidents
  • Raising parental or adult presence through regular relationship building activities
  • Repairing  the parent-child relationship through reconciliation gestures and making amends
  • Ensuring extreme self-care, practicing self -regulation and meeting your own needs
  • Recognising the triggers
  • Developing better communication
  • learning how to discipline using natural consequence 

Whilst we can’t change our child over night we can change the behaviour overtime whilst also becoming the parent we want to be.

The programme consists of a block of 12 x one hour private sessions via zoom- usually weekly and weekday at a time to suit both parties, plus an e-course comprising 8 hours of videos. It is advisable for both parents/carers to attend. 

The weekly mentoring session includes: 

  • My planning each session
  • One hour session of parent mentoring
  • Email follow up as necessary after the session
  • My receiving supervision and discussing how best to help your situation with my supervisor as required
  • Assessment of progress

"I think it is a well done course and will benefit many parents out there. I loved the section on attachment styles, understanding the child's behaviours from a multi-sensory point of view and the natural remedies you talk about, particularly as I am a paediatric physiotherapist and while I am aware of all these things, perhaps a lot of laypeople are blissfully unaware of the simple but VERY important aspects of child development and how important simple touch can be to a child having difficulties."
