Who I Am
Steve has dedicated his life to helping others reach their highest potential
It’s rare to find a therapist who can take you in deep to where the core of the issue exists. Steve uses a combination of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy to do just that. It can be difficult to know who to trust your mental and emotional wellness to. But for those who know him Steve stands out from the others in many ways. He integrity as a person and as a therapist is one or them.
Steve is usually able to find the deeper cause of any presenting issue in a short period of time. Finding the core reason for an issue allows a person to overcome the issue rather than ‘manage’ or use tools to cope which might be the best support some therapists can provide. Steve has helped many people move from ‘managing’ to Overcoming some debilitating life issues.
“Steve, you’ve helped me more than words can express! I really feel changed, and it’s happened so quickly” – Karla Koulos
Steve has devoted his life to helping others. He is a therapist with great compassion, insight and depth. Steve has a deep understanding of the issues people face. He takes clients on a journey to find the answers within themselves, this is far more empowering than ‘telling’ a client what to do, as many therapists may do.
Steve has been practicing for 20 years and remains in many ways a stand alone therapist at the leading edge of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and counselling techniques today. He connects deeply with the people he works with and offers unique ongoing support as needed. Including after hours support in case of crisis.
What happens in a session ?
Every session is unique, but usually includes some time spent talking, getting to know the issue or the experience. Each session also usually involves some deeper inner work.
“If you’re ready for true, deep and often profound therapy then Steve is the one for you” – Sarah Jade
Some therapists will give you ‘coping’ tools and ‘techniques’, or a clinical diagnoses accompanied by a prognosis that you’ll have some ‘condition’ for the rest of your life, and probably need ‘medication’ for the rest of your life. You should be aware that there can often be another way, a natural way, of working through layers and into the core of whatever depression or anxiety or other condition is causing you.
Steve doesn’t use labels, which he feels can be very disempowering.
Everything has a reason for being present. eg. Depression happens when a person holds onto negative or depressing memories or thoughts about a situation or experience. Anxiety is about an underlying worry or fear about a situation. When we go in deep we can connect with these deeper, subconscious experiences. These hold the keys to freedom, and transformation.
The truth is that many therapists don’t have the skills to find the deeper subconscious reason/s for current issues. That’s not a problem, it’s just a lack of training and ability to take the person in deeper. Steve has developed and trained intensely for his work.
Steve will work with you to assist you to identify causes and overcome whatever you are facing. He has worked in Geelong for over 20 years helping thousands of people find clarity and satisfactory outcomes. He has gained a reputation as a therapist who is integrous and deeply skilled in his ability to find the source of the problem and lead his clients through to empowering outcomes in a timely manner.
Steve will hold you as he takes you toward some old discomfort or pain you’ve been trying to avoid – which never works in the long run – suppressing the issue eventually leads to more chronic issues (mental, emotional, or physical) later on.
There are many advantages of working with Steve, he is holistic (looks at the bigger picture) and intuitive. He is not limited to any one therapy style but brings elements of hypnosis, and psychotherapy to the session.
Steve has a calm and confident demeanour, this helps people relax into, and trust the process. From the moment you make contact you’ll know you’re in good hands. In essence he supports or ‘walks alongside’ whoever he is working with in a collaborative journey toward a satisfying outcome. Steve often makes himself available outside of session times for a text or quick call if needed, adding extra support to provide an extra degree of comfort for those experiencing a particularly difficult time.
Steve specializes in Anxiety, Relationship counselling, Depression and all psychological and emotional issues.
Steve lives a healthy lifestyle himself to ensure his energy levels remain highand vibrant which is important when he helps people to such depth of understanding. He’s a therapist who walks the walk. He regularly practices Yoga, Meditation and Qi Gong (all energy building practices) and eats ‘cleanly’ so that he is at his best for any person who walks through the door.
The main difference in working with Steve is his ability to work with subconscious as well as conscious mind. Steve knows the power of the subconscious mind when it comes to healing and if the therapist can’t work on that deeper level then complete and lasting healing is rarely achieved. The subconscious is the key to deep healing and lasting positive change.
Steve creates a safe space for clients to go deep (while remaining fully aware) leading you to your own answers.
Couples therapy is a speciality of Steve’s, he is able to ‘get into’ each persons world and facilities a mutual understanding of one another’s world. Improving communication and understanding is essential as well as healing any past hurts and resentments, so that you can get back on track, back to being best mates and enjoying life together again.
fetime ofAnxiety is another speciality area for Steve, but he is not limited in any way and has helped people with all manner of issues.
“I have studied the conscious and subconscious minds for many years and feel confident I can help you find the deeper cause to your current issue or unhappiness. I look forward to starting work with you whenever you are ready” – Steve
*clients remain completely conscious throughout any psychotherapy and/or hypnotherapy session.
I felt a connection with Steve from the outset, and trusted his perception of my reality. His understanding of my feelings was palpable. Steve lead me down the path of healing and hope. I could not have connected with my life and future without his genuine intuition and therapeutic skills. My life has been transformed. I would HIGHLY recommend that other people take this journey and have the opportunity to live their dreams.
Thanks so much Steve, I cannot express how you’ve turned my life around through getting to the source of what was causing the pain. It’s a powerful gift you have mate!
Words cannot express how Grateful I am that we met you Steve, you’ve made a Very Big difference to this little family. Thank You.
