We know you have found us in what must be an incredibly difficult and emotional time. 

No-one looks for relationship and marriage counselling unless their relationship is in turmoil. We’re truly sorry you have had to experience such pain.

Our relationship with our partner often forms the foundation of our whole life. Relationship Counselling Central Coast.

We understand relationships difficulties can negatively affect the rest of your life , and are often painful and confusing.

At the Hart Centre, we have 18 years’ experience helping over 10,000 couples in crisis find their way back from relationship distress.

Our passion is to help identify the underlying causes of your relationship distress and help you rebuild your relationship into a new and mature loving bond again.

Unfortunately, very few of us have been taught how to have a good relationship. Most of us are doing the best we know how, but lack the knowledge on how to create a better relationship.

When you are suffering from Relationship difficulties, usually you feel you have lost that loving feeling and sense of connection with your partner.  Sometimes you may feel that you have lost yourself in your relationship.

As a result of these, communication problems further erode your sense of relationship happiness and contentment, making  the negative override cycle very difficult to escape from.

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 relationship counselling

It’s natural to be nervous before coming to see a psychologist for the first time.

We are committed to taking a very positive approach with our relationship counselling.

We make it a priority to really understand the problems and perspectives of each of you. We find that most couples are looking for a positive action plan to make their way through the problems to improve the quality and hope of their relationship long term.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you will need more than one or two sessions, but you should see progress each session.

Read more about our approach to counselling in our relationship counselling sessions.

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. Relationship Counselling Central Coast

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.
