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.

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.
