The Hart approach to couples counselling
At the Hart Centre we pride ourselves in taking a very positive approach to our relationship counselling.

Then we will help you understand with compassion, the dynamics that are at play that underly your problems. Then, together, we create a positive action plan, so that you can feel real hope that progress is possible.

How do I choose the best psychologist to help us?
Choosing the right couples psychologist is an important decision for you. It can help to keep in mind that relationship counselling is a very specialised field of psychology. Help for Relationship counselling Sydney.
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 your counselling, 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 means in essence 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 will be seeing, before booking an appointment. Our receptionists can also help you decide the best fit for you if you would prefer.
Your partner not listening to you?
Have you ever noticed that when it feels like your partner isn't listening to you, you're not very inclined to listen to him or her either. And that will usually leave you both in a lose-lose situation of neither listening, and therefore neither of you will be getting what you want from your relationship.
Being able to speak and have your partner listen and respond empathically is fundamental to a healthy relationship. We can show you how to overcome this "not-listening" pattern that can undermine all your communication with each other.
Have you been neglecting your relationship?
"Super busy-ness" is the norm for many people who have kids, work, family and a home to look after. In amongst all these considerations, its so easy to take for granted your relationship. But your relationship is a living thing that needs ongoing care, in the way of time and energy in being together and fully engaging and having fun with each other.
If your relationship has ended up on the bottom of the pile of priorities, we can help you put some life, intimacy and spark back into it.
A loss of love in a relationship can be caused by unresolved conflict
There's no couple who doesn't have some differences and conflict, because we are not clones of each other, despite how similar we might be. But it is vitally important that you know how to resolve conflict when it comes up in a reasonable time, and not let it grow over time, or even simmer away for years.
Having it simmering under the surface results in hidden resentments, which is the primary cause of the feeling of not loving your partner any more. This is crucial to prevent or to fix, if you discover this is what is happening in your relationship, if you want a lasting happy relationship.
What to do if one of you has an affair
If one of you has chosen for any reason to develop another relationship with someone outside your relationship, it can be a devastating betrayal of trust.
It is an extremely difficult time, but with the help of a skilled psychologist, you can work through the issues involved and gradually, over time, grow into a better relationship than you had before. Relationship counselling Sydney psychologists.
