FACE was developed by Lizelle Lötter. In 2005 Lötter received her Masters degree in Narrative Therapy at UNISA. She specialised in group therapy for Primary School children. Since then Lizelle has been experimenting with different concepts and ideas around developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Emotional Competence through narrative group therapy in Primary Schools. During this process she got fascinated with the idea of empowering Primary School children with language for their emotions.

Throughout this whole process, Lizelle developed the tool that was later called “FACE”. Lötter has presented workshops for parents, therapists and pastors. Even though this product was developed out of the fascination for children and their language surrounding their emotions, “FACE” is not limited to any age group, culture or situation The interest around “FACE” is constantly growing. Lizelle plans to do a lot more research and development of this process.

Lizelle mostly working with children but she also has extensive experience in working with adults, parents and families in general. Lötter is the first phase on doing a doctorate in the value of the product “FACE” and the process used in “FACE” for counselling in general at UNISA. Lizelle and a friend is also developing a childrens book on FACE. Currently she fascinated by a persons “concept of self” and the influence of “self”-labelling. She in the process of developing a new product called “Labels”.

Welcome to FACE Facilitating Articulation & Competence of Emotions.






We all think we know what emotions are. But do we really? Are emotions our mind playing tricks with our body? Or is it our body playing tricks with our mind…? If we accept that emotions are a body-mind thing, we must accept that a great part of our life is either out of our control, or difficult to control. For more see WHAT IS EMOTION?*

Face is a unique product that consists of 44 illustrated emotions. These emotion-faces are an excellent tool in facilitating conversation about emotions. For more information, see THE PRODUCT*.
