Paul McQuillan, Ph.D., Psy.D.

Dr Paul McQuillan is a Family and relationship Counsellor with Anglicare SQ in Brisbane. He is a Member of the Viktor Frankl Institute (Vienna), a Faculty Member of the Viktor Frankl Institute (USA), an Honorary Fellow of Australian Catholic University and an adjunct Senior Lecturer at University of Southern Queensland.

Paul teaches Logotherapy as a secular approach to clinical and life problems. The meaning of life differs from person to person and hour to hour. He believes that ultimately we should not ask what the meaning of life is, but realize that it is each person who is asked. We are questioned by life and must respond to that questioning.

He is a member of the International Seminar on Religious Education and Values. ISREV is a group of approximately 200 academics worldwide who meet bi-annually. Membership of the Seminar is by invitation.  His research interests include the spirituality of young people, a field in which he has published two books and numerous journal articles.

Prior to his current roles, Paul has worked as a Director of Catholic Education in Brisbane, and has been a High School Principal and system administrator for thirty years with Catholic schools in four states and territories of Australia.
