The Hart approach to relationship counselling
Before coming to see a relationship psychologist for the first time, it’s natural to be nervous about what the psychologist might recommend. We pride ourselves in taking a very positive approach to our couples counselling.
Our aim is to really understand the problems and perspectives of each of you. We find that most couples are looking to find a positive action plan and way through their problems. We help you to make changes which have a positive impact and bring a real sense of hope for your relationship.

Some of our clinics also provide after hours and Saturday sessions for your convenience.
What is our counselling success rate?
While every couple’s situation is different, feedback we have received from our clients is 90 – 95% have positively reported that they found counselling with our psychologists beneficial to their relationship.
We know that most couples want to find out the cause of their particular relationship problem, resolve them quickly, and then move onto bigger and better things, and that is what we focus on.
Under our expert guidance, you will gain a deeper understanding of your unique relationship difficulties and are given options and actions to help you become “unstuck” and move toward your relationship potential.
How do I choose the best psychologist to help?
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.
Does it feel like your partner doesn’t listen to you?
Almost every couple who comes in to see us, feels that their partner doesn’t listen to them. And almost universally when you feel ignored, you usually don’t want to listen to your partner either, so the net effect is that neither person gets listened to, and both are frustrated.
So learning how to communicate your honest thoughts and feelings in a way that your partner does truly listen is a crucial skill for you to feel that you are in a fulfilling relationship. We can show you some simple but effective ways to do this with each other.
Perhaps you’ve been neglecting your relationship?
Its so easy to get busy with your life and all the other commitments you have and forget that your relationship is a living breathing thing that needs ongoing nurturing. If you have unwittingly allowed your relationship to go this way, we can help to get your relationship back on track.
We can also assist you if you want individual help and guidance on your relationship, so you can learn what the patterns in your relationships are showing you about yourself. relationship counselling Townsville
Unresolved conflict leads to a loss of love
Every couple has conflict because we are 2 different people, but it is important to be able to resolve the conflict that comes up in a reasonable time, and not let it go on, and simmer away for years.
Doing this leads to hidden resentments, which is the primary cause of a loss of love between you over time. Help for relationship counselling Townsville.
An affair or betrayal can be devastating
When one partner chooses to look outside their relationship and develop another connection with someone, this causes a huge amount of pain for the partner whose agreement of monogamy has been betrayed.
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.
