Psychologist/ Sexual Counsellors

Debi Hamilton - Geelong

Debi has been offering counselling services in Geelong for 19 years. She is now working with men and their partners following prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment, and is a member of the Geelong Prostate Cancer Support Group.

As anyone touched by prostate cancer will know, treatment can result in side effects that will have profound consequences for men and their partners. Many men will find these issues difficult to talk about:

  • depression
  • erectile dysfunction
  • masculinity
  • intimacy

Partners, too, may experience grief, anxiety and depression, and wonder how to deal with changes to intimacy in their relationship.

Psychological counselling can help in a number of ways—it can provide a private space separate from one’s social connections in which to discuss deeply personal feelings and concerns; experiences of anxiety, sadness, anger and grief can be explored; and new strategies for dealing with issues from anxiety through to intimacy and sexual functioning can be identified.

Debi can be contacted for enquires and appointments:
