Bernie Wright

Bernie is the co-founder of NEDDE TRAINING and a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor. Since qualifying in 2004, Bernie has specialised in eating disorders and neurodiversity, training as a Master Practitioner in 2007 at The National Centre for Eating Disorders (NCFED). Her commitment to the field has seen her ascend to the roles of supervisor, mentor, senior lecturer, and clinical lead at NCFED, where she continues to make significant contributions to the mental health community.


Frances Button

Frances brings extensive experience in mental health and crisis intervention to her role. As a former Clinical Lead Manager for an NHS provider in South Kent Coast, Frances has led safeguarding initiatives and managed services at the forefront of mental health care. She has also coordinated Kent Counselling Services and contributed her expertise to a residential unit assessing adolescents with challenging behaviors from London's inner cities. Frances is skilled in supervising and counseling in Victim Support Homicide settings and is a qualified Critical Incident Stress Debriefer (CISD).

At Nedde Training we are continually moved by the trainers’ lived experiences and indeed by the courage and resilience of so many of the wonderful delegates and people who have worked with us on our training.

Those of you who have trained with us will have witnessed the remarkable stories of those who have suffered within a system that was/is prescriptive, punitive and punishing, as opposed to compassionate, supportive and creative. Furthermore, we are always extremely grateful to those of you who have worked with us over the years, you know who you are, and we thank you again. We have all heard countless stories of neurodivergent people being misdiagnosed, humiliated, and cast aside, whilst at the same time discarded and accused being of non-compliant, or treatment resistant, and told to leave their ‘autism at the door’, and countless other dehumanising statements levelled at them. 


We are starting this group to offer a safe, supportive, and confidential environment and we will be regularly bringing in monthly speakers who will be addressing different topics that trouble so many neurodivergent individuals and their families. We are keen to ensure that this group is available to everyone, therefore, we are asking for donations from those of you can afford it, and for those of you who currently cannot, we would love you to also attend.
