Deborah Hyams, Principal Psychologist


Deborah is a Psychologist registered with the Psychology Board of Australia and has practised for a number of years in a variety of government and non-government organisations including a psychiatric clinic, mental health services, corrections, child services, employment assistance, and emergency services. In 2011 Deborah established Moving Forward Psychology Services. 

It was during her training and volunteer work as a Lifeline telephone counsellor that Deborah made the decision to pursue her career as a psychologist. Fuelled by a passion to help others have more of what they want in, and from their lives, Deborah went on to achieve her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Psychology degrees from Central Queensland University. 

As well as being passionate about her work with individuals, Deborah also loves working with groups and is an accredited Certificate IV Trainer and Assessor and a Circle of Security Parenting program facilitator. Deborah is an enthusiastic advocate of the Circle of Security Parenting program for all parent/s or parent/s to be. 

The inspiration for her ongoing practice as a psychologist, Deborah believes, comes from the courage and persistence of the clients she has had the privilege to work with.
