Colleen CarruthersRegistered Psychotherapist - Certified Coach - Facilitator
Colleen's Story :
I moved to Peterborough from Toronto about 18 years ago and my life changed drastically.
While living in Toronto I provided corporate training in developing teams, conflict management, communication skills and coaching, as well as I ran my private therapy practice. I thought I was living a satisfied life until I moved here and became involved in the community – and wow – what a difference.
In Toronto, I would work with people to grow and then move on to new corporations every week. When I moved here, I opened my private practice and started doing corporate work and an amazing thing happened to me – I got involved in teaching the Peak Leadership Program for local business people.
Because of this program, I met so many people in the community and was able to get deeply involved in the not for profit sector. Not only was I able to grow my business, grow my clients, but I grew myself- I expanded into working with people who are so grateful and so community oriented. I got involved with clients where I could return over and over and eellike I belonged. I love being in a community where I can see how my work contributes to both individual growth and the growth of the community. My life satisfaction has grown immensely and I thank Peterborough for providing me with an environment where I feel supported as a woman, mother, grandmother, dog owner, quilter and friend.
