Gateway Psychology itself began as a tiny seed nine years ago – I worked as a sole trader working from small premises on the other side of Tower Square. Within one short year, with the help of a very part-time colleague, we grew out of that space and the search for new premises began – the primary aim being to find a suitable space that would absorb current need and facilitate further growth. In 2014 we bought 7-9 The Boulevard, renovating it extensively to be fit for purpose, and relocating there in 2015. As much as we thought at the time that the space was more than we would ever need, Gateway grew exponentially over the next six years, quickly filling all available space with staff and, of course, the wonderful children and families with whom we work.
Not wanting to stagnate or stunt our growth, last year we bought Boulevard House – again engaging in an extensive renovation programme – enabling us to not only nourish our roots but strengthen our core/our trunk and ‘branch out’ into new and exciting ventures.
And here we are today, enjoying quite literally the fruits of our labours together with you. What you have seen here today has hopefully given you a taste of what we aim to do here at Gateway, for our local community, the wider Stoke-on-Trent area, and as far afield as the virtual world allows.
Thank you for partnering with us.
