Welcome to the Hart Centre….

You’ve come to the right place if you value your relationship, (along with being true to yourself) and would like help with how to repair the inevitable difficulties that come up in most relationships, and build a stronger more authentic connection.

None of us, when we fall in love, imagine how difficult our relationship is going to be at times. We always hope for the best, then do our best, and still we can find that we can get stranded in problems that we don’t really understand. We can unwittingly get into distressing lose-lose negative cycles, and not know how to get out of them.

This is perfectly understandable because most of us haven’t been taught how to have a great relationship. We’re just doing the best we know how.

There is a very complex blend of science and art in creating great relationships, and this is both our passion and specialty.

We’re a group of nearly 100 psychologists, counsellors and sex therapists Australia wide who are passionate about relationships; understanding what makes them tick, how to best overcome difficulties, how to communicate effectively, how to get your relationship back on track, and even build new depths of compassion, understanding and honesty.

We can give you the insight into the patterns you may inadvertently find yourself in that have caused hurt and confusion for you, and help you discover what’s stopping you from having the relationship you’d love, so you can start taking steps towards the relationship that you want, creating an emotional safe haven for each other and a more authentic intimacy.

I welcome you to begin your journey back to a finding the full relationship potential of you as a couple.

“At the end of our life what matters most is how well we loved”

About The Hart Centre

Our vision is to be the most highly regarded and comprehensive marriage counselling, relationship counselling and sex therapy service in Australia, at reasonable and affordable rates.

We hand choose our team of Registered Psychologists, Counsellors and Sex Therapists considering their knowledge, compassion, and unbiased approach to marriage counselling and sexual therapy and their experience in the relationship field.

We also provide our team with In-house, relationship training and conferences with world renowned international guest speakers as we have a strong commitment to continually keeping up to date and improving our methods.

Because many of us are Registered Psychologists, you may be able to access Private Health Insurance and Medicare Rebates for your sessions.

We are also trained in and integrate sexual counselling into our relationship counselling, as we find these areas are often closely linked.

Our other areas of specialization are Anger Management, and helping you manage Narcissistic tendencies in either yourself or your partner.

If you’re looking for information on Relationships please search our Relationship Information Search bar, or perhaps try out our Quizzes.

You can find our Psychologists near you, by going to our Psychologist finder, and selecting your city or postcode. Each psychologist has a profile with their photo and a description of their backgrounds and specialties, so you can feel comfortable about whoever you chose to help you.

We also offer SKYPE sessions to anywhere in Australia or around the world.

We are positive about relationships, but we are also realistic, and know from experience that not every relationship can be saved, particularly if one of you really doesn’t want it.

But we can help you find out what the true potential of your relationship is, which can give you real peace of mind, and for most couples, we can help you rebuild a loving happy relationship, which is often better than you have ever had before.

Our Marriage Counselling Approach

It is very important to us that we take a very positive approach to relationship counselling. From your very first session, we will take the time to fully understand each of your individual perspectives, without bias, and get to the very root of the issues that are affecting your relationship.

Once we have a clear understanding of what’s been going on, we will compassionately guide you and your partner beyond the dynamics that have been causing you problems.

We will work with you and your partner to create a positive action plan, one that will help you make real progress towards rediscovering your happiness together.

Although couples therapy is the quickest and most effective way to re-establish harmony in a relationship, it’s important to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. The process can be challenging and will generally require more than one or two sessions to achieve lasting results, but be rest assured that you will be making progress with each session and be starting to feel better.

Communication is a vital skill but not often taught to us

Many people find that their ways of communicating with each other hamper them from having a happy healthy relationship.

Effective Interpersonal Communication skills are not something that most people are taught.  But almost every couple having difficulties in their relationship, feels that when they do try to communicate their thoughts and feelings, their partner is not listening. Marriage counselling therapists.
