Services

Proudly serving the Victorian community through Debi Hamilton Counselling & Consulting, I have been offering a range of tailored psychological services since 1995.

Prostate Cancer

As well as the fears and difficulties that any cancer diagnosis can bring up, prostate cancer can lead to changes in self-esteem and intimacy.
