Our Team

Paul O’Callaghan

Paul O’Callaghan was originally born in Brisbane and grew up as the eldest of 11 children. Paul’s interest in health and nutrition has always reflected on his family’s medical background. Paul initially trained as a clinical scientist and subsequently studied physiotherapy in Sydney. Paul worked in the hospital system within New South Wales and subsequently traveled overseas living and working in Canada. Paul returned to Western Australia to work, and completed his postgraduate diploma in manipulative physiotherapy under the supervision of Mister Bob Elvey.

Paul has been working in the Forest area as a Physiotherapist since 1994. Over that period of time Paul has been involved in the community raising both the awareness of physiotherapy and assisting many people to improve their musculoskeletal health and maintain their mobility. The development of a purpose built clinic in the Forest area in 2006 had been a long term goal for Paul O’ Callaghan. The creation of a warm professional space for both clients and a diverse range of therapists and specialist doctors.

Paul is constantly perfecting his clinical skills through study, research and attending courses both locally and overseas. He is always developing new methods to provide world class outcomes for all his patients.

When Paul is not working or spending time with family, you’ll find him paddling on Narrabeen Lake or bushwalking around the northern beaches and beyond.
