Welcome to Stirling Relationships

At Stirling Relationships we are committed to providing a range of evidence-based solutions to empower you to make the changes you need to live your best lives. Ranging from luxury couples retreats through to accessible online relationship courses we have you covered.

After providing couples therapy for several years, we realised that traditional couples therapy wasn't the answer for every relationship. Some couples benefit from a more intensive model, where they can escape day-to-day distractions and access one-on-one support from a dedicated couples therapist. Whilst other couples are seeking out opportunities to learn skills and strategies to enhance their relationship, but don't require the intensive support of a couples therapist. They want flexible, affordable options that support them to take action immediately. 

Stirling Relationships offers a range of relationship solutions for couples, providing information and resources in a range of formats that meet the varied needs of individual couples. From the bite size chunks of information in our cards, to tangible activities in our date boxes, through to the in depth explanations in our online programs there is a solution that works for every couple. 






Luxury Couples Retreats

Couples retreats offer an opportunity to escape from day to day distractions, to rejuvenate, inspire transformation and give your relationship the attention it deserves. Your dedicated couples therapist will spend three days working intensively with you to make meaningful change in your relationship. Couples retreats are tailored to each individual couples needs and may include a range of activities designed to enhance the connection in your relationship.
