We provide professional, modern and caring services to individuals and couples who are looking to improve their sexual well-being.

Welcome to Peninsula


Face-to-face in Mornington and Online

We help with sexual concerns using research-based, empathy-driven approaches. 


Sexual anxiety, erectile/arousal difficulties, pain during sex (dyspareunia, vulvodynia & vaginismus), orgasm/pleasure difficulties, changes in sexuality before and after giving birth, we help with a wide range of sexual health issues. 




Whether on your own or together with your sexual partner, we guide you to a more fulfilling, intimate relationship. We help individuals and couples understand and explore their own sexuality and navigate differences in desire and sexual preferences.


Sexuality and Intimacy

Surprisingly - or not, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions around sex. We can provide up-to-date, scientific, research-based information about sex, sexual health, gender, STIs and how to talk about all of these topics.




Sadly, sex is not always an enjoyable experience. We provide victims of sexual trauma with caring, gentle, empathetic and clinically proven trauma therapy. You are not alone and we can help.


Sexual Trauma Support

We understand that not everyone is comfortable with their sex assigned at birth or fits into the heterosexual world. We provide specialized LGBTIQA+ counselling support and help you explore your gender journey in a safe space.
