Dr. Firdevs Tat is a psychologist who is fluent in Turkish with over 20 years of clinical experience. She has practice endorsements in both Clinical Neuropsychology and Clinical Psychology and has worked in community health and private practice.

She provided individual consultations to parents on parenting issues and counselling when required for grief, anxiety, depression, family violence and trauma. Working closely with parents, teachers and other health professionals has been an integral aspect of her work.
