After previously working in the corporate and tertiary education sectors, Steve Fahey has been a registered psychologist since 2004. He has worked as a counsellor in community and family therapy agencies as well as providing coaching and counselling to employees. In recent years he has provided a broad range of psychological services (prevention, early intervention and crisis intervention) to emergency service workers as well as providing consultation and coaching to managers.

Steve works with adults on presenting issues including anxiety, depression, stress (including workplace stress), relationship difficulties, parenting issues, grief and loss, looking for meaning/purpose, career/work direction and managing change.

He believes in working with the person rather than with the problem and employs Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in his counselling and coaching work. ACT helps clients to develop skills which assist them to effectively manage presenting difficulties and to set goals and take actions which move towards who and what is important to them.

Steve is a registered Medicare provider and a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, cycling, yoga, reading, telling dad jokes and watching AFL, the world game, track and field and cricket.

Rebates & Referrals

Medicare rebates are available, however a GP referral is necessary. To obtain a Medicare rebate you will need to obtain a Mental Health Care Plan and referral from your GP. Otherwise, if you have a treating psychiatrist, she or he can provide a general referral letter. If you haven’t yet obtained a referral, we may be able to recommend General Practitioners in the local area whom we already work with.

Rebate Eligibility

Please check with your private health insurance fund to see if counselling is covered.

For information about Medicare rebates, please see our FAQ section, particularly ‘Can I receive a Medicare rebate for seeing a psychologist?’ and ‘Are there Medicare rebates for Telehealth sessions? Or private health rebates? – COVID-19’.
