Helping you achieve the relationship you desire.

Stirling Relationships is committed to providing a range of evidence-based solutions to empower you to implement the changes needed to have the relationship you desire. Ranging from luxury couples retreats through to accessible online relationship courses -delivered and curated by Clinical Psychologist and Certified Gottman Couples Therapist, Dr Katie Stirling.

After providing couples therapy for several years, Katie realised that traditional couples therapy wasn't the answer for every relationship. She found many couples were looking to reinvigorate their relationship, they wanted opportunities to connect, to bring back the joy, learn the skills taught in therapy room but they wanted an alternative to weekly couples therapy sessions. She understood some couples benefited from a more intensive model, where they could escape day-to-day distractions and access one-on-one support from a dedicated couples therapist at a luxurious couples retreat. Whilst other couples sought out opportunities to learn skills and strategies to enhance their relationship, but didn't require the intensive support of a couples therapist. They wanted flexible, affordable options that support them to take action immediately. 

Stirling Relationships offers a range of relationship solutions for every couple. We provide information and resources in formats that meet the varied needs of individual couples. From our luxury retreats through to our online programs there is a solution that works for every couple.

Katie established Stirling Relationships as she is passionate about connecting people with the knowledge, resources, and tools to create the relationship they desire. After working with hundreds of couples in her practice on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia.  Katie recognised that there were many couples wanting to improve communication and connection in their relationships but they had no idea where to start!

Katie wanted to offer couples a range of solutions that met their individual needs. She understood some couples wanted to be able to access practical relationship tips and strategies from the comfort of their own home, whereas others were looking for a more intensive approach to rapidly work through relationship blockages. Hence, Stirling Relationships was born. All of our products are designed to bring couples the knowledge to change the way they think, the resources to shift the way they feel and the skills and strategies to take action to create the relationships they desire.

Katie is a registered Clinical Psychologist, Board approved supervisor and Certified Gottman Couples Therapist. Working with couples requires specialist skills. Katie has completed substantial couples therapy training and travelled extensively to access the most up to date couples therapy training. She is also currently studying a Masters of Sexology. She adopts an evidence-based approach that is tailored to couple's individual needs. 

Katie is passionate about prevention and wants to help couples before they ever need to step inside the therapy room. She has spent the past few years developing a framework to future proof relationships and is excited to be launching her online relationship masterclasses.
