This Dating Life
Liz has often been asked to cater for the needs of single un-paid Carers and for single professionals. The following seminar is suitable for single carers and professionals from any field, and is aimed at assisting individuals to network for themselves (for personal – not professional – development).
Tuesday 14th February 2012 6.30 PM – 8.00 PM
Woodstock Community Centre, 22 Church Street, Burwood

Liz Dore, counsellor and dating coach from Relationships and Private Stuff will deliver a talk entitled “This Dating Life” in which she will highlight ways busy people can maximise their opportunities to connect to people and build relationships. Some professionals hide behind their titles and their suits but ultimately it’s skin to skin when the lights are out. The truly, madly, deeply in love phase is different to the long bonding phase. How do you ­ find a partner who will want to be by your side supporting you while you’re vomiting from a virus or receiving an award for excellence in your ­ field?

Registration Fee: $130 includes the seminar and an individual follow up consultation. To register, send registration form and cheque to Liz Dore PO Box 1060 Burwood North 2134 or email completed form to and discuss other payment options.
