About Us

Since 1988 Gateways Counselling has been present for people and their issues. There are times in every person’s life where people want someone to talk to, someone who will listen, and somewhere to go where they truly will be heard. At Gateways Counselling we make the commitment to be present with you and to hear what you are saying. We do not come in as the experts to solve your problem or to tell you what to do. We use our expertise to listen to you and to act as a member of your team in order to help you to find better ways to think and feel.

We believe that inside every person is a sense of goodness and wonderment that needs to be fostered and encouraged. We bring our expertise, as part of your team, to develop new ways of thinking and feeling that will allow you to unfold into your own magnificence. We do not believe that people are broken, but rather that people’s difficulties arise from the unuseful patterns of thought and behavior that humans adopt. These patterns can be changed.

We want to help you to foster more useful and healthy patterns of thought or behavior that will lift the limitations that you have placed on your own existence. We recognize that at times these unhealthy patterns are learned through family of origin or other “learning opportunities” along life’s way; i.e. divorce, loss of a loved one, lack of love of self, and other challenges that life has presented to us. We are here to help you gently learn to accept yourself and find a new way of living.

Gateways Counselling offers different paths of learning that foster healthy and supportive patterns of growth and development. Those paths of learning may be through counselling, personal coaching, training or seminars, and/or hypnosis Cd’s. Each of these paths offers different opportunities to support you in your growth process. Our counsellors are trained in many different paths in order that they may bring the most effective perspectives and tools to your change process. Our commitment is to continue our growth and training so that we can encourage and support you in your growth and training.

Gateways Counselling brings warmth, understanding, respect, non-judgment, empathy, support, safety, and encouragement to our counselling and trainings. Our goal is to make a difference in the world by helping people change, one person at a time.

“Come to the edge.
We can’t. We’re afraid.
Come to the edge.
We can’t. We will fall!
Come to the edge.
And they came.” 

- Guillaume Apollinaire, French Poet/Philosopher, 1880-1918

Judy Wright

Judy is counsellor, trainer, and facilitator. Judy brings her warm spirit and wisdom to all of her training and counselling sessions. Judy believes that a counsellor and trainer must “walk with a person” as they move through their experiences in counselling and trainings. This helps people feel heard and understood. Judy feels our world would find more healing if more people experienced being listened to in a compassionate manner. Judy is there to offer support and encouragement to assist people in finding their own inner richness and personhood. Judy does not side-step difficult issues that people are not facing. Rather she confronts and challenges people in an honest and caring manner to face these issues and to move through them. Judy encourages people to face the difficult areas in their lives that they must face in order that they may find their own voice and place in the world.

Judy is a Registered Psychologist (provisional) at the Masters level and holds a degree in Bachelor of Arts, High Honors in Psychology and and a masters in educational psychology.

May we have the opportunity to help you find some dreams, dream dreams, connect with your dreams, and help you make your dreams come true! David and Judy

“All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.” T.E. Lawrence, 1888-1935 “Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862
