Paul Galbraith

Provisional Psychologist

Paul is a warm, compassionate, and skilled provisional psychologist, with more than 12 years’ experience in the field. During his career in South Africa, he worked in private practice, as well as in a school-based psychologist role, and is experienced in working with both adolescents and adults with a variety of life or psychological difficulties. Paul is currently registered as a provisional psychologist while he completes the transitional program for overseas-qualified psychologists.

Paul believes that people often come for therapy when they have become stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaving, and their usual approach to dealing with problems no longer works for them. He sees his clients as skilled and resourceful, and believes that effective therapy assists people to live life in a meaningful way, shift unhelpful patterns, and build on their own resources and strengths to overcome challenges.

Paul employs solution-focussed, cognitive-behavioural, and acceptance and commitment approaches to walk with his clients towards their desired outcomes for therapy, and strongly values building a warm and caring relationship with each of his clients.
