Working with Stephen
Work on emotional issues, improve your mental health and sense of wellbeing, all in a supportive and safe space.
For over 25 years I have been working with people, and connection is at the core of that work – connection with self, connection with community and connection with the environment.
I offer courses, retreats and 1-2-1 sessions that are powerfully transformative and have the intention of bringing harmony to your mind, your life, your community and the world.
My work utilises many western, eastern and ancient modalities, practices and environments. All the while, providing a safe space for you to navigate your life, nervous system, perceptions and beliefs, behavioural patterns, and values.
In our work I will remain present to you, my Self and the process. My promise to you is that I will support you and provide curiosity, care, compassion, connectedness, and calm.
I am a Compassionate Inquiry Practitioner in private practice. I also serve as a Compassionate Inquiry Facilitator, training participants in the professional course, and Mentor participants as they prepare for certification.
I have completed Internal Family Systems Levels 1, 2 and 3, and work as a Programme Assistant on IFS Level 1 courses.
In April 2021, I began the three year training in Somatic Experiencing.
I look forward to hearing from you and exploring how we might work together.

What people are saying
I have always experienced Stephen to work with deep grace, creativity, professionalism, sensitivity, energy, flexibility and with an astounding dexterity in translating often complex concepts into an accessible, supportive, and familiar language.
Stephen is a modest down to earth authentic man who is passionate about people. He has a natural ability to relate and connect. His gentle, considerate personality shines through in his interaction with people.
I have observed Stephen to work skillfully to support individuals and groups, sensitively attending to group dynamics whilst also offering one to one support when needed. I experience Stephen to be a committed, passionate leader and highly skilled facilitator.
