Originally from New Zealand, Paul Carver was Manager of Psychological Services in primary care for a large part of the North Shore of Auckland, a role which involved training other psychologists, and running a mental health team. As part of his work, Paul introduced new services for older adults in Auckland, who often suffer from multiple chronic conditions, and experience isolation and loss.
Prior to becoming a psychologist, Paul worked as a social worker with children, adolescents and their families, calling on families at home, and often working at a very practical level to find solutions to problems. Thus he has a very wide range of experience.
Paul loves working with people. A senior psychologist in age and experience, Paul is very confident that even if problems have been around for along time and have seemed impossible or intractable, before, working together with you, a solution can be found. Paul doesn’t think we were ever supposed to try to prise ourselves out of tough situations by ourselves. There is incredible magic in working with someone with the right mix of skills, experience and the ability to receive you as just as you are.
Paul has a flexible therapeutic approach, and believes that the combination of a good relationship or partnership, and the best evidence-based therapies on the planet, make for a powerful mix. Paul has a particular interest in treating clients with:
- Chronic or Terminal Illness
- Living with Pain
- Being an Older Adult
- Men’s Issues
- Grief and Loss.
