My name is Debora Felman and I am a registered psychologist specialising in the areas of depression, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, post natal depression, trauma, victims of crime, childhood trauma, family conflict, relationships and life crisis. With more than 30 years of experience in psychology, I provide services in both English and Spanish.
I graduated in 1991 with a degree in psychology from the University of Buenos Aires. In 1996 I emigrated to Sydney, Australia where I quickly integrated myself in the industry, particularly with other Spanish speaking psychologists. I'm proud to have worked as a psychologist for government organisation STTARTS and at the Liverpool Women's Health Centre.
In 2003 I was delighted to set up my own private practice in Parramatta, Sydney to continue doing what I love.
I offer counselling services specialising in the following areas:
- Mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Post natal depression
- Victims of crime
- Childhood trauma
- Family conflict
- Relationship issues
- Life crisis
My sessions are 1 hour in duration and I charge on a case by case basis.
