Overview

Dr Pauline Baleta is from South Africa where she was a fully registered senior clinical psychologist for the past 15 years, until she immigrated to Australia in April 2023. She qualified in 2008 with her masters degree in psychology from the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and then went on to complete her PhD in Psychology (UP) in 2019 at the University of Pretoria. Pauline brings with her a wide range of experience and knowledge from working in a range of different mental health and psychiatric settings. She has worked in detention centers and psychiatric hospitals (namely Sterkfontein, Tara H Moross and Glynnview) where she consulted with both involuntary and voluntary mental health users mostly dealing with depression and anxiety related disorders, bipolar mood disorder and schizophrenia. She also ran her own private practice in Johannesburg, South Africa for the past 15 years where she mostly consulted with individuals, couples and families and enjoyed working with a multi-disciplinary team consisting of doctors, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, psychiatric nurses, and social workers. Pauline was also the founding director of the Family Therapy Clinic at the hospital she consulted at and often ran DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) groups for inpatients. During her time in South Africa, Pauline also supervised interns, community service psychologists and psychiatric registrars in psychotherapy and assessments. Pauline also has experience and an active interest in medico-legal and forensic evaluations. She conducted many assessments through her private practice and in conjunction with the Department of Justice in South Africa. Pauline is very warm and caring and treats her patients with empathy and a non-judgemental approach. She believes that psychotherapy is a collaborative approach and looks forward to assisting you on your journey.
