Steph has not only helped us personally but also professionally. Being a small business, it is really hard often to separate the two from each other as you put your heart and soul into it.
Plus add into the mix being married and working together!
She has given us the tools and knowledge to deal with the many stresses that business and life brings. She has the ability to bring you out of a situation and back to centre.
She always helps us bring a clarity to any situation and also educates us in understanding our behaviours and actions. The amazing part of this is that she is never ever giving you the answers, you get there all on your own. She just helps clear the pathway for you to arrive at outcomes.
Drive, determination and the ability to be flexible in business all comes down to the mind and how you treat your body. Steph is paramount in keeping all of this in check and is an integral part of our CB family.
I first started working with Steph when I was with the St Kilda Football Club. Her professionalism and knowledge within her field of work stood out for me when I started to notice the changes in my mindset and performance on and off the training track, I knew working with Steph would be of benefit for me and my football career. Steph has helped me with the mental side of football immensely and played an important role in ensuring my mindset was and is, fit for success upon my move to Carlton Football Club in 2018. I look forward to working with Steph in the future.

Hillary McGregor-Potter is a highly esteemed rider; currently excelling in the discipline of dressage. She presently has a team of 5 horses, who range through the levels from Prelim to Prix St Georges. Hillary's riding experience has been obtained across the disciplines, from winning horse trials championships at a national level in 2* in NZ, to Show Jumping in Germany; however it is dressage in which she has found her true passion. Hillary also has a strong love of coaching, and travels from her base in QLD to VIC on a monthly basis to train a select group of riders.
I’ve been lucky enough to have been working with Steph since I first met her. She has an energy and enthusiasm about her that is infectious; and to top it off, the ability to create in you the belief that you are capable of achieving any goal that you are prepared to dedicate yourself towards achieving. And I don’t mean this in a wishy washy, ‘blowing smoke’ kind of way… Steph has an uncanny ability to very quickly isolate any psychological perceptions that you have of yourself that are subconsciously holding you back, errors that you are making in your competition preparation; basically any ‘chink in your armour’ that has the ability to inhibit your success on either a professional or personal level.
Whilst sometimes these insights to ourselves can be rather confronting; the beauty about Steph is that she also has a wealth of tools to help you reprogram these behaviours or habits and build a much more successful mindset and training programme. Thanks so much Steph for giving me a clearer picture of myself, my training and competition plan, and my general life plan to boot!

I have always been very in-tune with my animals after a not so good childhood, animals were my world. Today my husband says there is a sign above our property “strays welcome here”. My response to that is there is much worse in this world than loving and caring for an animal and giving it the best possible life. Maybe if more people had it as a priority in their lives, image what the world could be.
Steph is fantastic and is a very valuable tool that helps me in my training, especially with my current horse, Classique K (Spud), who with no jumping happening I am having to learn to become a better dressage rider. Steph has helped me enormously by giving me the reassurance that Spud is up for the challenge as we make our way up the grades both in HRCAV and EA.
I see many unhappy horses out in the competition arena, with stressed, uptight riders on their backs. I don’t want that at the end of our competition career, I want a happy, healthy and beautifully educated horse to look back over the years and be amazed at what I have accomplished and will continue to accomplish on the yearling we purchased, broke-in (having many thoughts about increasing my life insurance in those early years) and finally ticking many boxes as we continue to build on our already fantastic partnership.
With Steph’s help and insight I know I can achieve anything we set out to whilst having a fantastic time along the way.

A session with Steph is like a good friend gently uncovering what your soul really needs at this very moment. She makes you feel comfortable, safe, at ease, and instills in you that you are very capable of what’s ahead.
I believe the energy work Steph does with you is the missing link in so many physical and emotional health ailments. Being an acupuncturist and referring many of my clients for a session, I have seen first hand how incredible Steph is at helping with anxiety, stress, depression, pain in the body, sleep and fertility.
Steph has helped guide me through many ailments and issues on a personal level, during my pregnancies, around my little girl Evie, relationships, my business, and has helped create the platform for me to flourish as a person and follow my true path.
I always leave Steph's sessions feeling lighter, clearer, confident and content, with a smiling soul.
