She graduated with a BA in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford, and received her MA (Clinical Psychology) and PhD on psychosis proneness, from the University of Melbourne. Her studies have mainly focussed on unravelling the cognitive, emotional and social mechanisms involved in the individual symptoms of psychosis, especially auditory hallucinations. She has mentored students in clinical and neuropsychology over many years and is now the Research Director of Perth Voices Clinic - an integrated clinical and research facility for people with anomalous perceptual experiences which also provides advanced training for future clinical psychologists. Georgie Paulik is a clinician-researcher and Clinical Director of Perth Voices Clinic, Western Australia. She graduated with BSc (Honours) and Masters (Clinical Psychology) / PhD from the University of Western Australia. For the past decade her research and clinical work have centred on voices (auditory hallucinations), early psychosis and the prevention of illness in people at ultra-high-risk for psychosis. She provides training and supervision to postgraduate clinical psychology students in the delivery of psychological interventions for voices, as well as advanced training for mental health clinicians in this (and related) areas.
