Our Story

Our team of Mornington psychologists believe that everyone has the capacity for change and are committed to providing high quality, actionable help. 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.
We provide 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.
We are committed to providing information and resources in formats that work for you and recently launched our Stirling Wellness store with a range of online and tangible products.. We value the role of relationships in our well-being and happiness and offer tailored solutions for couples including luxury retreats and affordable online relationship courses through Stirling Relationships. 

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."

We believe that all of our values are equally important and help us to maintain our high standards of practice, as well as ensuring we all get to enjoy being a part of Stirling.
