Marg’s passion and knowledge for the material was so engaging, she seamlessly integrated questions to the material and inspired me to reflect and better my skills. Marg is gentle, knowledgeable- a guiding light. I would recommend her anytime.

Workshop Participant


Betty’s wisdom, gained from many experiences of organizational life, shaped her working with us – and yet, her skills at listening and hearing what was being said allowed us to feel that our experience of the consultation was very honouring of context and not formulaic.

Professor and Vice Chair, McMaster University, Department of Family Medicine

We have had so many participants, myself included share how they have applied the concepts that Marg taught in our ministry and in our personal relationships. Marg honoured each person and extended such love and grace throughout her teaching and time with us.

Director, Celebrate Recovery Canada

With great skill and insight into the dynamics of group interaction, Betty’s leadership resulted in a decision concerning building renewal that was unanimous, and an agreed direction for the future. Her ability to facilitate a complex process was one of, if not, the best I have experienced in my 20 + years in education.
