Don Callahan is a qualified psychologist and celebrant in private practice in Melbourne. Born in Ballarat and educated at St Patrick's College, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in psychology and political science from the University of Melbourne.
After completing a Graduate Diploma in Counselling from RMIT, he became a member of the Australian Psychological Society, registered to practise in Victoria as an organisational psychologist. He has run his own successful independent practice for 22 years.
As the eldest of nine siblings, Don became interested in civil celebrancy after writing and delivering the eulogies for his parents' funerals. This profound personal experience led him to further study to become a professionally qualified celebrant through the Australian and International College of Celebrancy. Don is qualified to design and conduct funerals, weddings, name givings and other rites of passage.
On the personal side, Don has lived in Ivanhoe for 39 years, is married to Sally and has five sons aged from 19 to 36. He is active in his local community and lists food and wine, reading, golf, jazz and classic cars among his interests. His professional interests include the transition from childhood to adolescence.
Ultimately he believes that professionally created and conducted rites of passage enrich and strengthen us as individuals, as families and as a society.
