Zahara Chowdhury
(our resident educator extraordinaire) 
Rich Grahame
Dr Rachel Lewis CPsychol
(Chair and in-house psychology expert)

For much of her professional life, Rachel has been interested in conflict resolution. As a family and couple therapist in Canada, she worked with family conflict. As a psychologist in the UK, she focused on helping individuals who feel conflicted about their lives. In her opinion there is little difference between the two. Living with others obliges us to face ourselves and the consequences of our actions. Conflict results when we do not face up to this truth. In addition to her work on the board of SNS, Rachel also provides support in researching the outcomes of SNS interventions.
