Toni McErlane, B.Sc., has developed a wide array of approaches to working in the field of restorative relationships. She obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Counselling and The American Certificate in Horticulture Therapy. She completed the North American yearlong Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Leadership Programme, and has trained extensively in conflict resolution, restorative circles, wilderness therapy, Hakomi for couples, and mindfulness & somatic approaches to working with trauma. Toni is an AMINZ associate Family Dispute Resolution Provider (FDR) and in 2017 completed the year-long Te reo Maori level Two through Te Wananga o Aotearoa.
Her approach towards supporting healthy relationships is from the humanistic perspective that all of our actions are attempts to meet needs (though some strategies are more effective and less harmful than others). That our emotions are our guides to orientate us towards the direction our organism is being drawn towards and that by cultivating an “allowing” presence with our emotions we can develop a comfortable trusting relationship with them.
