An Interview with Elizabeth Retief
A: I became a TIR trainer in 2019.
A: TIR and the other Metapsychology techniques are so effective that I feel it is important to equip as many people as possible with the skills to use them. I also really enjoy teaching and facilitating workshops, so becoming a TIR trainer was a very natural choice to make.
A: Attendees to the workshops each bring their own perspective, history, social context and skill-set. It is fascinating to learn from their diverse experiences, and satisfying to see their excitement at the potential of TIR. It is also deeply rewarding to equip others with these tools.
A: I am willing to travel if costs are covered and aspects pertaining to the venue etc is taken care of.
A: Professionally I am also very interested in intimate relationships and issues around sexuality. Personally I enjoy hiking and generally spending time outdoors, board games and reading and I have been doing Tai Chi for some years.
A: I started studying psychology in 2008 and did my first TIR workshop in 2009, completing my Masters in 2018. In that time I was trained in Divorce Mediation and joined the Family Life Center as volunteer divorce mediator, later also joining their Education for Living program doing sex ed and relationship workshops in schools.
I am also part of a team of trauma counsellors who provide trauma support in a number of hospitals in the Johannesburg area and I have a private practice where I do individual counselling, group debriefings and work with people in alternative relationship arrangements and present a short personal growth workshops.
