At Unfold Consulting..

.. we see the things that others miss. We work collaboratively to design individual blueprints for living a connected, expansive life every day. 

Neuroplasticity is the study of how our brains function and how they can be exponentially enhanced. Our programs teach an understanding of how the brain works and how to work with it, rather than against it. 

Using science-based techniques and strategies we can learn how to adjust our perception of not only ourselves, but the world around us too.

“Everything having to do with human training and education has to be re-examined in light of neuroplasticity.” Norman Doidge

Our Approach

We believe that potential has no limit.

We celebrate curious minds and individualists.

We use strategies and techniques grounded in scientific research.

We understand the power of neuroplasticity – the brain’s capacity to continue growing and evolving in response to life experiences.

We know that feeling phenomenal is possible every day and that it can be simpler than you think.

We cultivate an objective internal dialogue that supports us in our every day.

We welcome every failure as a learning mechanism and know that consistency is accumulative, not all or nothing.

We accept that perfect is an illusion, conjured to keep you in place.

Our Commitment

Clear communication, always. 

To guide you through the groundwork necessary to move you forward.

You are the leader and you create your blueprint.

We are here to reinforce your actions, not prescribe those actions.

To use proven techniques that work.

Our Promise

To help you determine your direction and to understand why our minds sometimes feel chaotic.

To teach you to switch off negative talk and what healthy discipline looks like.

To support you to reconnect with who you are and disconnect with unhelpful conditioning and what’s holding you back.

Together we learn how to live mindfully, wearing many hats.

  • Meet the Founder

Stephanie Smilas is the Founder and Director of two six figure businesses. She has been teaching people how to connect more fully with themselves for more than a decade. Her calm energy is composed even when exploring topics such as why the mind feels chaotic and how to switch off the negative talk.

Studying meditation led Stephanie to neuroplasticity and learning how the brain and the mind work. She has worked with hundreds of individuals and with corporate groups like PWC and Victoria Police. You may also have seen her on Channel 31 teaching yoga for seniors.

Stephanie was an avid learner from a young age and was happily reading unassisted when she started Kindergarten at the age of 3. Growing up in East London, she got her first job at 12 years old and by 16 was financially supporting her family. A tumultuous life at home meant she passed on the opportunity to go to university and moved out of home and into the adult workforce.

She knew she wanted more from life than her peers seemed happy to accept. She also knew the UK wasn’t her long term home. She began searching and found yoga, then meditation. She met her Aussie ex-husband while travelling in Europe and moved to Australia. Being a mother has been the most incredible and amazing challenge that she’s loved stepping into.

What she lacked in education she made up for in diligence, ingenuity and an unequalled work ethic. She worked her way up the corporate ladder by excelling in every role and then seeking out opportunities and aggressively going after them. She had corporate companies creating positions within their executive teams specifically for her. Where she revolutionised team dynamics, training processes and absolutely shattered sales targets.

Although different, each role she undertook had the common thread of being focused on understanding people and putting them first.

Using her lived experience, the skills learned throughout her 20 plus years in the corporate world, combined with more than 10 years of teaching mediation and yoga, Stephanie has the uniquely perceptive ability to see both the bigger overview and the in-depth details of situations.

Being a self-proclaimed Light-Bulb-Moments junkie, Stephanie’s enthusiasm for learning and life is infectious. She works with a warmth that is welcoming and authenticity that is paramount in everything she does.
