Please note: Zameer is a very experienced mental health professional and a provisionally-registered Psychologist until the end of 2020 when he obtains full AHPRA registration. His clients will then be eligible for Medicare rebates. Until then, his fee is $95, which is slightly less than the usual co-payment when seeing one of our fully-registered Psychologists. Once Zameer is fully registered, his clients will need a GP Mental Health Care Plan to obtain a Medicare rebate in order to obtain a similar copayment amount.
Zameer is a gentle and calming therapist who is passionate about helping his clients overcome stress, depression and anxiety. He is experienced in working with clients who have suffered childhood, relational or shock trauma using evidence-based trauma treatments. Additionally, he has experience assessing and treating adults and children with ADD and ADHD as well as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He works with children, teenagers and adults.

He incorporates Mindfulness based practices, along with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), solution-focussed therapy and reflective practices.
He has an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma as well as a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Honours) with a double major in Biochemistry and Psychology from the University of Toronto and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychology from Murdoch University in Western Australia.
