Elle Stübe - Registered clinical psychotherapist and trauma specialist



Elle Stübe (pronounced SCHTOO-BEH) is an Australian-based psychotherapist, trauma specialist and expert in relational trauma. 


Since 2008, she has offered a cutting edge 'embodied relational' psychotherapy to transform the lives of hundreds of adults, adolescents, couples and families nationally and internationally.


Elle brings a deeply humanistic approach to her work - which recognises the centrality of relationship in all aspects of human experience.


A pioneer in the "new paradigm" of mental health treatment, Elle's approach emphasises the profound impact of early relational experience on adult mental and physical health; and elevates the therapeutic relationship to the single most important element in effective mental health treatment.

A trained Contemporary Somatic Psychotherapist, Elle has extensive experience identifying and treating all forms of trauma - in particular the oft misunderstood and misdiagnosed symptoms of relational trauma  (developmental, attachment and complex trauma) and the identification and treatment of narcissistic abuse - both in parent/child relationships and in adult/adult relationships. 

Elle has undertaken training and professional development with some of the world's leading experts in the field of trauma, neuropsychoanalysis and interpersonal neurobiology, including Dan Siegel, Stephen Porges, Allan Schore, Bessel van der Kolk, Janina Fischer, Pat Ogden, Stan Tatkin, Gabor Mate, Bruce Perry and Karl Heinz Brisch. 

She is a passionate advocate for the vital relational needs of humans and believes that quality human-to-human connection is the single most important need of our time. 

Also a professional writer, broadcaster and presenter, Elle is a powerful contemporary voice in mental health - shedding fresh and compelling light on what it means to be human.
