Dr. Paddy Ducklow
(MA, M.Div., D. Min., R. Psych.)




Paddy focuses on couple therapy and family therapy as well as individuals. He is trained in several theoretical systems including a family systems theory, cognitive-behavioural therapy and emotionally focused couple therapy. Paddy is a Psychologist and has been a church Pastor (www.CapChurch.ca). In 2015 he retired as the Erb-Gullison Professor at Carey Theological College in marriage and family studies. Currently, Paddy works in the Ducklow’s Park Royal office. Paddy and Carole are married with two adult children and three great grand kids. Paddy loves dark coffee with chocolate and you can often find him in coffee shops reading some tome with a highlighter pen. He has a muffin named after him at Crema Café in West Vancouver — so he must drink lots of coffee. Plus he is a decent amateur photographer.
