An integral part of a healthy relationship is a sense of equality and consideration and empathy for each other. In fact no relationship can feel rewarding and supportive if either partner is mostly self absorbed.
If you are in a relationship with a Narcissist, in his/her mind, you are an extension of him/her and he/she must always win, so his/her eruptions of temper and ego and devaluations and guilt are sharp and designed to cut you to the core, leaving you wounded.
So, in an overall sense, you will experience problems with his/her lack of honesty, humility and empathy for your feelings.
Also, he/she will have difficulties with intimacy with you. Honestly sharing your thoughts, feelings and desires with each other makes the Narcissist very scared and vulnerable, so he/she will avoid it.
We offer counselling for victims of narcissism, which includes all different relationship types. It can cover parents, siblings, children, friends and romantic partners.
The Hart Centre offers a counselling program for victims of narcissism to help them heal and feel more empowered within themselves to make healthy life changes.

- Discovering your genuine needs and wants as an individual and in a relationship.
- Be aware of your feelings and manage your emotional self on a daily basis.
