Searching for positive, common sense support and ideas to help create a stepfamily and life you love?


So were we. And, over a glass of wine, Stepping Through was born.


Our team


Rachel and Trisha started as co-workers 12 years ago and fast became friends. Having originated in New Zealand and the States, they have both created a home and a family in Australia.

They both studied psychology at University and have extensive experience in the private and public sectors working with children and families. Trisha has earned both a Bachelor of Arts and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology.  Rachel has a Masters Degree (Social Science) majoring in Psychology and Behaviour Analysis, Post Graduate Certificate in Social Health and is a nationally registered psychologist in private practice.

Rachel and Trisha have celebrated some wonderfully happy and also devastatingly sad life events during the past decade of their friendship. Their stories involve divorce, re-partnering and children. They are excited to share their experiences, qualifications, friendship and sense of humour with repartnered couples here in Oz and around the world.
