We know you have found us in what must be a very stressful time for you. No-one looks for relationship and marriage counselling unless their relationship is in difficulty. We're truly sorry you have had to go through such pain.

Our primary relationship with our partner often forms the whole foundation of our life.

When things are going well, life can flow. But when it’s troubled, it can make everything else challenging too, often impacting our children, finances, home life, work, health and even sleeping at night. Psychologists for Relationship counselling Sydney.

We at the Hart Centre, have 18 years’ experience helping over 10,000 couples in crisis find their way back from a troubled relationship.

It is our passion to help identify what it causing your relationship difficulties and show you how to rebuild your relationship into a newly mature loving union again.

There are not many of us who have been shown how to have a great relationship. Mostly, we are doing the best we know how, without knowing what else to do, so it’s understandable that relationship and marriage problems can develop slowly over time, without us realizing it. Partnerships can turn stale, uninspiring, or worse, destructive.

7 signs your relationship is in trouble

  • 1. You are fighting over the same issues all the time, or having escalating fights
  • 2. You are not able to air your issues, talk about them and resolve them
  • 3. There are more and more silences between you
  • 4. You are spending less time together
  • 5. You are thinking about developing an interest with someone outside of your relationship
  • 6. You are focusing more time on the kids than each other
  • 7. You are having little or no sex

If you can identify some of these already in your relationship, it is wise to come and seek help so that your relationship doesn’t deteriorate further.

The Hart approach to couples counselling

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

In your first session we talk with each of you to fully understand your perspectives and where you are at.

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. We will need more than one or two sessions  if you have had difficulties for some time, but you should see progress each session.

We know that most couples want to find out what's happening in their relationship and be able to resolve it as quickly as possible so they can move onto bigger and better things, so that is our focus.

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.

Anxiety and Depression

Is Anxiety, Depression or Stress bothering you? We can help.

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.
