I was introduced to the Protective Behaviours process in 1997 and I attended a Foundation Course trained by Di Margetts. Since then, I was privileged to continue to learn from Di and other PB people of all ages and abilities and my understanding of the process continued to develop through meeting and working with so many remarkable individuals and groups.

I trained Protective Behaviours Foundation courses since my accreditation in 2001, facilitating Process into Practice courses since 2007 and in 2011 co-delivered a Train the Trainer course with Sally Ann Hart. In 2015 I decided to retire from active training.

For me the power of PBs lies in the essential simplicity of the process.  In the 1970's in Wisconsin Peg West developed Protective Behaviours as a strategy for child protection and the prevention of abuse and today PBs continues to fulfil that purpose. However, as well as establishing a personal concept of safety and alerting us to the action we need to take when we are not feeling safe, PBs can also help develop a sense of belonging and self-worth.  In this way we can use the process to nurture emotional well-being and help promote positive mental health at individual, organisational and community levels. The flexibility and diversity of the applications of the PB process seem boundless.
