Psychologist and Psychosomatic, Emotional Release Therapist
WELCOME TO PSYCHOSOMATIC THERAPY AND PSYCHOLOGY
Here to inspire re-connection to mind-body intelligence through deep internal listening, and access to the wellspring of wisdom that resides within.
Mind-Body-Spirit awareness of mental-physical-emotional experiences manifesting in the physical body. Trauma processing through the systems of the body (e.g., nervous system, digestive system).
Nervous system tension re-set, processing of trauma wounds, emotional release trigger point therapy through deep massage.
Awareness and understanding of the way in which past and present experiences have imprinted on the intellectual mind and the physical body, in order to help restore mind-body-spirit balance.
Translates in Greek to "study of the heart". This treatment is offered through a blend of psychological and psychosomatic practices to work through emotional, mental, and physical blocks.

I am a Psychosomatic and Emotional Release therapist, and Clinical Psychology Registrar. I am also a current Doctor of Philosophy PhD candidate, and psychology/counselling university teacher in Melbourne.
Blending a powerful body of wisdom teachings in my offerings as I am passionate about the provision of best-practice psychological and somatic treatment in the community. My services can be offered through blended talk and movement therapy, or massage that accesses the emotional release trigger points in the body which are often linked to trauma from a past or present experience.
I wish to inspire people to explore the subtleties of their body and to help them re-connect deeply to their innate wisdom and body intelligence.
My publication titled: "Correlates of weight stigma in adults with overweight and obesity: A systematic literature review" has inspired my current research work in the area of weight-stigma within the Body Image, Eating and Weight Clinical Research Team (BEWT).
"Steph quickly attuned to me and transmits a warmth through her touch...I felt completely safe and supported, for which I’m immensely grateful as it was a deep-dive experience into some of my core wounds."
