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 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.
