About Judy Colpitts

Life Coach and Counsellor

My Mission:

I want my clients to leave with a smile on their face while they say to themselves,

“I never knew I could feel this good.”

As a colleague and former supervisor of Judy Colpitts, I consider her to be one most effective counsellors that I have seen. Her commitment to utilizing evidence-based, cutting-edge counselling techniques has made her a sought after therapist.

She is a well-trained and gifted therapist. She is extremely professional. It is with full confidence that I state that anyone in Judy’s care is fortunate in receiving help from such an excellent therapist and a competent and caring person.

Judy Colpitts On Being a Life Coach and Counsellor

I love my work!

Counselling and coaching is a way for me to exercise my core life values and principles: Integrity, personal improvement, learning, offering a helping hand, professionalism, striving for results and excellence.

My enthusiasm for my work can be infectious to my clients, especially when life is tough. Sometimes it can be amazingly helpful just knowing that someone has faith in you and in your ability to create a better, more satisfying life.


Why I Stand Out As a Counsellor and Coach

I deliver – I am result oriented. You will receive high quality solutions in a caring, supportive and comfortable environment.

My clients often achieve long-term results due to my desire to give them the best service possible.

My clients enjoy my sense of humour. I am skilled at helping people feel more comfortable with themselves, and thus more comfortable with their place in the world.

I have a strong track record as a therapist and coach. This is evidenced by my excellent reputation in Vancouver and Kelowna. Due to the results I receive with my clients, I consistently receive referrals from physicians, other health care providers, and of course, my clients.

I bring a wealth of training and experience, which allows me to select the approaches and techniques most likely to be helpful to the uniqueness of each client and the situation they bring.

A common thread that runs through my work life and personal life is that I am curious and enjoy learning. This ensures that I am current on the most up-to-date counselling and coaching approaches, and the science behind them.

Having had the privilege to work with Judy in various capacities, I am always impressed by her dedication, compassion, knowledge and commitment to the work and service she provides to her clients.

Professional, personable and with the ability to create a warm and trusting environment conducive to self knowledge and growth, Judy’s experience and insightfulness are very evident through the results and successes her clients achieve.

A Coaching Client:

“I would recommend that people working with you enter the process with the expectation of having conversations that closely resemble a chat with a wise old friend than a formal session with a professional. I find this ability to converse in a less than formal fashion to be one of Judy’s greatest strengths.”

In closing, let me say that what I like best about my work is being able to help my clients improve and enjoy their lives more. When people are happier with themselves and their lives, that happiness radiates to others. It then is like a chain reaction — happiness begets happiness.
