Stefanos Sifandos (born February 28, 1982) is an Australian entrepreneur and relationship coach who has worked for over two decades in the personal development/transformation and self-help space.[1][2] He is known for his work on sexuality, psychology, human interaction, leadership, communication, and self-empowerment.[3] The lessons derived from this work represent both Eastern and Western methodologies and promote spiritual balance in life and love.[4][5][6][7]

Sifandos is the founder of Elementum Coaching Institute, Love Amplified, and the global men’s movement - MPowered Brotherhood.[8] He has also authored two books leveraging his background in behavioral science, somatics, relationships, his own trauma that he chose to move through and his understanding of peak human performance.[9] He is regarded as one of the most influential and respected relationship coaches in the world and has worked with a wide array of clients including Olympic gold medalists, special forces soldiers, couples, CEO’s, high performing entrepreneurs and everyday people.[10][11]

Apart from that, Stefanos is a keynote speaker and has appeared at a number of events/conferences/talkshows/podcasts sharing his industry knowledge.[12] Some notable podcasts that he has been featured on include Leann Rimes, Aubrey Marcus, Mark Groves, Lori Harder, Ben Greenfield, and Rising Woman.[13][14]

Early life and education

Stefanos was born on February 28, 1982 to Spiros Sifandos and Maria Sifandos in Australia. Early in his life, Stefanos experienced physical and emotional abuse and trauma. Stefanos acquired behavioral patterns and developed maladaptive coping methods as a result of these intense events as he grew into adulthood.

Sifandos and his family moved to Greece from Australia when he was young, which created a linguistic barrier for him, as well as opened him to bullying, loneliness, and then internalized shame. Stefanos' family and household were also affected by drug use and gambling, which led to increased violence and isolation. He found solace in male friendships, social isolation, and a desire to travel in such turbulent times. As a result of his difficult home life, he also developed a connection to nature, philosophy, and fantasy that helped him to escape his surroundings. Stefanos later turned to sex addiction, love compulsion, associating with the "wrong crowds," pornography, an over-reliance on food, and addiction to excessively fueled adrenaline-based events to cope with the avoidance of these extremely intense experiences.

He decided to face his unresolved trauma and early childhood abuse and began working with councilors, psychiatrists/psychologists, coaches, shamans and healers in order to understand his past, heal his anguish, and become a different person because he had so much unprocessed rage and trauma. Stefanos’ life began to change for the better after years of intense work, depression, anger issues and suicidal ideation. This entire experience reawakened a part of him, pushing him to turn away from his past path of extreme hedonism, escapism, shame, and concealment. He had many "ego deaths" that changed his relationship to himself, women, his family and the world around him. Stefanos discovered a greater sense of meaning to all of life as he worked through old unresolved sorrow. He let more possibilities, true connection, and intimacy into his heart. As a result, his career took the trajectory of greater success, because he was in greater connection to himself.

Sifandos holds a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science with a mahor in Philosophy and a master’s degree in Environmental Science & Business Management, both from the University of Notre Dame, Australia.

Career

Sifandos is a co-founder of Elementum Coaching Institute which offers training and certification programs built from one of the most robust and comprehensive curriculums in the world related to coaching.[15] He is also a co-founder of Mpowered Brotherhood, a men's movement providing holistic wellness services to men worldwide, supporting men in moving through their trauma and pain.[16] Stefanos is also the co-founder of Asraya - an evolutionary ecosystem designed to educate and connect great minds virtually and in-person, utilizing web3 technologies and the blockchain.[17] It is also a dApp, global marketplace, mystery school, online and offline community, innovation lab and network of regenerative villages designed to preserve our planet, accelerate consciousness, ignite creativity and create sovereign wealth, also leveraging articulate genesis NFT drops.[18][19]

All of his businesses are focused on personal transformation for individuals, businesses, and huge groups.[20] His enterprises teach individuals how to help themselves by utilizing bespoke tools and procedures created by Sifandos himself to assist people in releasing psychological baggage that has been holding them back from living the life they consciously desire.[21]

Stefanos’ programs span Inner child healing, Somatic therapy, Trauma healing/release work, Breathwork, Men's personal development, Dating, love and relationships, Masculine/Feminine dynamics, Sacred sexuality, and intimacy.[22] All of these programs fall under the Love Amplified umbrella, which is dedicated to empowering people and couples to step further into love by healing their pasts.[23][24]

Stefanos works closely with his now-wife Christine Hassler to create programs that use integrative techniques and methods such as neural empowerment, Holotropic, Shamanic Praxis, biodynamic breath-work, trauma release and integration, western psychology, and Eastern Mysticism to improve people's lives, intimate relationships, and bring them closer to their potential.[25][26]
