Liz Hatherell
Winnipeg, Manitoba
Course Facilitator

I am the mother of 3 adult daughters and have been married for over 35 years to my husband, Julian. I am passionate about helping parents make sense of their children: this material and theory fit just right in my heart, and I am thoroughly enjoying sharing it with those who care for children. I would go so far as to say - what Dr Neufeld brings to our consciousness gives us insight to make sense of life.

I am continuing both with my studies with the Neufeld Institute in order to deepen my understanding of the paradigm and with ongoing training in new courses.

I offer the courses listed below in Winnipeg, often in my home. Groups are small (8-12) and are open to parents, grandparents, nannies, teachers and others working with children and adolescents. Each session of a course consists of the video material featuring Dr. Gordon Neufeld, usually viewed online at your convenience, then we meet together for review and discussion, complemented with my own stories. I provide the group with privacy, a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and also a small snack including my "famous" cookies. (My home is pet and scent-free; babies in arms are welcome.)

As well as the courses listed in the website, I offer the following options:

  • If you have a group of 7 or more interested participants, please contact me to arrange a course.
  • Private classes can be arranged to suit your schedule.
  • One on one tutorials are available to those who have taken a course and would like to review a session.
