​​​​​​Stacey Mary Page is currently completing a PhD in Medicine in the area of Psychology at The University of Adelaide School of Psychology. Stacey is continuing research she conducted for her Honours Thesis for Bachelor of Psychological Science(Hons), with her supervisors Professor Anna Chur-Hansen and Professor Paul Delfabbro. Her Thesis titled 'Hairdressers as a Source of Social Support' (2019) looked at hairdressers as informal caregivers to their clientele; based on the theory of social support and psychological buffering. This research used a qualitative interview approach to gain insight into what topics clients tell their hairdresser, how hairdressers respond to client disclosures and how hairdressers feel about being social supports for clients. Stacey's PhD research follows from these findings, taking a mixed method approach to explore hairdressers, barbers and client perspectives on social support; including benefits to clientele and risks such as emotional burnout and compassion fatigue experienced by informal caregivers. Stacey is also a qualified hairdresser and make-up artist
