About the Speaker

Judith Paterson, Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

Judith came into this profession in an unusual way. She spent a large portion of her career in a business setting leading departments and project teams. She started her business career as a customer service representative and ended as the leader of continuous improvement for a global manufacturing company. And she learned something important – most problems are solved by empowering, engaging, and appreciating the people involved.

Judith went on to pursue a second career in mental wellness. She is a registered social worker and psychotherapist and enjoy working together with clients to explore solutions to life’s challenges. She draws upon the wisdom of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Applied Mindfulness, and years of working as a professional problem-solver.

Judith never cease to be amazed by how small conversations can lead to big changes.
