Our Story

Our team of Mornington psychologists believe that everyone has the capacity for change and are committed to providing high quality, actionable help.


At Stirling Psychology we do this through evidence-based treatments, grounded in thorough assessment and compassionate, authentic, therapeutic relationships. We recognise that people want a more holistic integrated approach tailored to their individual needs, and that a growing evidence-base supports the effectiveness of such a model.


Stirling Psychology provides individual and couples therapy online, as well as individual and couples counselling from the comfort of our Mornington psychology practice. With a calm and friendly boutique feel, we aim to create a warm and welcoming environment for our clients.

At Stirling we wanted to do something a little different. To utilise our knowledge to provide information and resources in formats that are user friendly and accessible to all. Providing both tangible and online tools that emulate our Mornington psychology practice. So we created Stirling Relationships and Stirling Wellness.

Stirling Wellness provides a range of tangible wellness products, as well as online courses to support you in maintaining your commitment to your wellbeing. Giving you the tools, knowledge and resources to begin making meaningful changes in your life.

Stirling Relationships offers a range of solutions tailored to couples including luxury retreats, affordable online relationship courses, as well as a range of relationship products that recognise the important role relationships play in our happiness and overall wellbeing. 



Our Culture

"We have created a boutique practice that we love working in. We value the importance of building a great culture as we believe if you create a warm, authentic, and supportive practice not only do you attract the best people, you also ensure the highest quality of care for your clients."

Our Focus



In Native American culture, hummingbirds are seen as healers and bringers of love, good luck and joy. With the goal of empowering people to live their best lives, we chose the hummingbird in our logo to convey an uplifting sense of freedom.

Helping you to feel confident and empowered to overcome challenges and live your best life.
