Deborah Kahler psychologist

Deborah Kahler

PSYCHOLOGIST

I’m a registered psychologist with a warm, genuine, down-to-earth style. I have a special interest in psychological Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. My practice is focused on adult clients (I no longer take child or adolescent clients). I utalise science-based interventions that are tailored to fit your unique needs, focusing on existing strengths and building up the areas that need attention and development.
Life can be difficult sometimes, but it can also be beautiful and full of meaning. Effective therapy can support you in clarifying what stands in the way of living a satisfying, fulfilling life and give you the skills to get there. My approach is about developing a toolbox of practical skills with real life applications.
