The choice of relationship psychologist you make is important. It can help to keep in mind that relationship, marriage and couples counselling is a very specialised field of psychology.
At The Hart Centre, we ensure that all of our specialist relationship psychologists take part in both our Initial training as well as our annual In-House conferences, where we bring in relationship and marriage experts to speak, from around the world.
For you to get the best results from counselling as possible, there needs to be a combination of two elements. Firstly, the psychologist needs to be experienced and knowledgeable in the field of relationships; and secondly, a good ‘therapeutic relationship’ should be developed. This simply means that you and your partner feel supported and understood by the psychologist, and that you trust them.
To help you make this decision, on each of our psychologists’ profiles we include in-depth overviews of experience and qualifications, so you can feel comfortable with the psychologist you would be seeing, before booking an appointment.
