We are Sydney’s leading couples counselling specialists

Helping you when your relationship is in crisis is our speciality.

For most of us, this current period we are going through is the most challenging time of our lives. We live with daily uncertainty about our health and our economic situation and none of us really knows how long it will go on for. As well as trying to adjust to managing children permanently at home, we are attempting to adapt to working from home as well; and have precious little of the fun activities that used to boost our spirits. So many of us are stressed, anxious, depressed and finding it hard to cope, and are reaching out for alcohol or other unhealthy coping strategies more and more.

All of this can culminate in pressure on us and our relationships, and as pressure builds, it can be difficult not to take it out on those around us.

If you are finding you are starting to get into arguments, or conversely feeling resentful but avoiding talking about things, please be proactive and reach out for help before it gets worse.

We understand how disruptive and emotionally difficult this time is for you both. Helping you understand, resolve and move forward is where our professional expertise lies. Because Couples counselling is a very specialised field, our group of psychologists, counsellors and sex therapists are specifically trained in the latest world-class relationship methodologies.

We’re proud that our specialisation allows our Hart therapists to be able to help couples in crisis quickly get to the core of their issues and begin the healing process.

Unfortunately, relationships don’t come with a guidebook or a road map to make our journey easier. None of us step into a relationship with all the tools we need for success. We simply hit the ground running, and despite our good intentions and optimism, for most of us our relationship ends up being far more difficult to navigate than we’d expected. But that doesn’t mean something is wrong; it simply means that there is much more to a relationship than we know about.

Building and maintaining a healthy and long-lasting relationship is one of life’s great challenges, and everybody could use a little help now and then to make sure they have all the tools and skills they need to create a loving and resilient partnership.

Whether there’s been a critical incident in your relationship, or your discontent has grown over time, we can help.

A difficult relationship can quickly erode your performance in every area of your life and even jeopardize your health if you don’t take decisive action to fix the issues and problems as they come up. That’s where our Sydney psychologists come in.

We’ve spent the past 20+ years helping over 18,000 couples rediscover their happiness together after having lost their way, through effective relationship counselling.

Our relationship therapists know how to get to the very root of a relationship problem and will carefully guide you and your partner through the particular issues that are causing you trouble, to restore balance and harmony to your relationship once more.

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.

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.

Because many of us are Registered Psychologists, you may be able to access Private Health Insurance 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.

Our unique approach to couples counselling

It takes courage and self awareness to seek professional help when your relationship is in crisis. When our clients come to us, it’s because they’re going through a very difficult time in their lives.

Love is the essential ingredient in any relationship, but most of us soon discover that love alone is not enough. There are times when love needs some high-level assistance and someone to point the way, and to explain why you are driving each other crazy, and what you can do about it.

Here at the Hart Centre in Sydney, we take a very positive approach to relationship counselling. From your very first session, we will take the time to get to the very root of the issues that are affecting your relationship, and fully understand your individual perspectives.

THE MOST COMMON RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS

 

DOES IT FEEL LIKE YOUR PARTNER DOESN’T LISTEN?

Effective communication is equal parts talking and listening. The talking part of the equation seems to come naturally to most of us, but effective listening is usually a bit more of a challenge. The trouble is that if you feel like your partner doesn’t listen to you, you’re less inclined to put in the effort required to listen to them in return. What follows is a vicious cycle of arguments that never seem to go anywhere because neither party is actually listening to the other, and the relationship suffers as a result.

Effective listening is a crucial part of any successful relationship. Without it, you’ll never be able to truly connect with each other and resolve issues amicably. One of the first things we teach our clients is how to effectively communicate with each other. We can show you how to escape the trap of “not-listening” that leads to so many unresolved conflicts.

 

IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP SUFFERING FROM NEGLECT?

In today’s fast paced world, life has become increasingly hectic and chaotic. Between looking after the kids, performing at work, supporting family members and running the household, modern couples in Sydney are under a tremendous amount of pressure. So it’s understandable that in the face of all these competing priorities, your intimate relationship with your partner can become an afterthought if you’re not careful. The fact is that relationships are like living things, and require care and attention in order to thrive.

If you feel as though your relationship has fallen off your priority list and is suffering as a result, we can help you breathe new life into it and reignite the spark of intimacy that was once so strong. Help for relationship counselling Sydney and marriage counselling Sydney.

THE DISASTROUS EFFECT OF UNRESOLVED CONFLICTS

There’s no such thing as a “perfect couple”. No matter how well suited two people are, there are always going to be some conflicts and differences of opinion that cause friction in the relationship. This is completely normal and unavoidable. The key is to know how to quickly and effectively resolve conflicts as they come up, rather than letting the issues fester over months and years, which can have serious consequences in the long run.

Failing to address and resolve conflicts in the present generally leads to unspoken feelings of resentment on one or both sides of the relationship. This feeling of quiet resentment often leads people to feel that they no longer love their partners. It is therefore crucial that you develop the necessary skills to resolve conflicts in a timely fashion if you want your relationship to remain healthy and fulfilling. Couples therapy Sydney.

 

HOW TO COPE WITH INFIDELITY

When it comes to intimate relationships, few things are more painful and devastating than infidelity. It destroys the sense of trust and mutual respect that holds the relationship together.

If you’re currently dealing with such an issue in your own relationship, our therapists can help you work through all the intense emotions you’re feeling and guide you through the process of healing and restoring your relationship to a state that’s potentially even stronger than before.
