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.
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.
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.
