Members only


Dr Lisa Chantler
A member of the APS since 1995, having completed my clinical training (MPsych) in 1990 at Flinders University of South Australia, I have always combined private clinical practice (Bridge Consulting Psychologists) with public sector work in mental and community health, brain injury and clinical supervision within MPsych programs. As well as providing therapy to adults with a range of mental health problems I also provide independent psychological opinions in relation to legal matters including Victims of Crime, Motor Vehicle Accidents, the impact of institutional abuse
and International Adoption. When not working I enjoy Vinyasa, fine wine and gardening.
