he highest quality care for our clients


About Us 

We have created a boutique practice that we love working in. A warm, authentic, supportive environment, where we have the utmost professionalism but aren't afraid to have a laugh. We established ourselves on the Mornington Peninsula because we are committed to creating a life we love.

Stirling Psychology aims to offer our team the flexibility to live the life they want. Perhaps you want to work some hours from home with young children, travel, or you are looking for flexibility to build  sessions around the things you enjoy - a yoga session, morning at the beach, time with family, or catching up with friend.

What We Offer

Connection and Community

We know you want to work somewhere that has the utmost professionalism but where people aren’t afraid to have a laugh! We know you want to feel connected to the people you work with. A place where everyone is working towards the same common goals and supporting each other in achieving their parts of that. As a team of Mornington based and online psychologists we value the importance of social connection. You will enjoy regular opportunities to connect with our team through online mediums and face-to-face social events.

Autonomy and Flexibility

We carefully select the people we work with because our culture is important to us. We want our online and Mornington psychologists to have the autonomy to thrive but also know that support is there in the ways they need it. We aim to be flexible in the ways that you need, to support you to live your best life. You will enjoy full autonomy over your calendar, choose the hours you work. You could do 3 sessions in the morning go the gym, go home and do another 3 online psychology sessions.  If you have young children you may want to save on childcare by doing a couple of online psychology sessions at night, it is entirely up to you. We understand that the important things in your life don't always happen on your days off and we will work with you to ensure you are there for the important moments in life.

Support Team

You will have a regular one-on-one catch up with our friendly, supportive and highly efficient practice manager Mel to assist with any support needs. Our warm, caring and highly skilled support team are available to assist you and meet any needs as they arise. Enjoy having all of your admin taken care of so you can focus on the aspects you love- working with clients. Our support team are our cultural ambassadors. They create a warm and welcoming environment for our clients and our team of Mornington based and online psychologists, they drive opportunities for connection, they are kind and compassionate and inject joy and laughter into the everyday.

Peer Support and Professional Development

In addition to support from our Support Team, we facilitate peer supervision, team meetings  and professional development opportunities. All of our psychologists have access to regular supervision and support from our Clinical Director. We also provide a comprehensive on-boarding process and an informal buddy system for new team members. We value learning and connection, we are committed to providing opportunities through online mediums but also believe that face to face connection is invaluable. 

Recognition, Remuneration & Wellness

We offer our employees competitive remuneration, including an annual professional development allowance.  We value loyalty and you will enjoy increasing financial remuneration the longer you are part of our team.  We value wellness and understand that achieving work life balance for a psychologist requires more than 4 weeks annual leave a year. Chat to us about our psychologists' leave package including additional annual leave and wellness days. We are so grateful for the wonderful humans we work alongside and believe the small acts are also important, you'll know what we mean when you join the Stirling team.
