Why Bali Stirling Couples Retreats?

After 2 years of COVID every relationship deserves a Bali retreat! Sun filled days, lazing by the pool side, walks along the beach, delicious food, cliff side restaurants - isn't that what we all need right now.  Your Bali Couples Counselling Retreat provides an opportunity to escape day-to-day stressors and really prioritise your well-being, by giving your relationship the nourishment and undivided attention it deserves.

Your Certified Gottman Couples Therapist, Dr Katie Stirling will work with you to:

  • Identify and shift patterns of interaction in your relationship.
  • Develop a greater understanding of each other’s needs and desires.
  • Better understand how you and your partner respond to conflict and learn strategies to de-escalate communication.
  • Learn strategies to manage stressors and ensure your relationship remains a priority moving forward.
  • Explore previous unresolved conflicts, using frameworks that you can implement at home.
  • Improve intimacy and enhance connection in your relationship.
  • Strengthen the foundation of your relationship, future proofing your relationship for potential challenges.

How are Couples Counselling Retreats Structured?

Our Bali Couples Retreats are facilitated by Certified Gottman Couples Therapist, Board Registered Clinical Psychologist and the Founder of Stirling Psychology, Dr. Katie Stirling. During your 3 day Bali retreat Katie works exclusively with you using an intensive couples therapy format sometimes referred to as Marathon Therapy. 


Prior to your Bali couples retreat you will complete a range of questionnaires designed to develop a complete understanding of you as individuals and your relationship.

This includes: 

  • A written questionnaire focussed on you as an individual and your perspective in the relationship.
  • A written questionnaire about your relationship strengths, history, and patterns of communication and connection.
  • Gottman Connect Questionnaire which uses a range of psychometric assessments to evaluate a range of areas. 

Treatment Planning

Prior to your Bali couples counselling retreat, your Certified Gottman Couples Therapist Dr Katie Stirling dedicates time to review your completed information and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. 

The information provided in your assessment offers an opportunity for Katie to develop a thorough understanding of you as individuals and your individual perspectives. As well as a complete understanding of your relationship and your patterns of interaction.

Based on this thorough understanding, Katie will develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific relationship goals and needs. 

Bali Couples Retreat

Your Bali couples retreat begins with a welcome session where Katie will present an overview of her understanding of the strengths of your relationship and the areas you will work on strengthening over the course of your Bali couples retreat. Katie will present a framework for your relationship retreat and together you will ensure this meets your relationship goals and needs.

Over the 3 days you will complete a further 7 couples counselling sessions. 

Your Bali couples retreat will end by reflecting on what you've learnt and an outline of tools and strategies for maintaining these changes as you return to every day life.
