WE LOVE RELATIONSHIPS.
That’s why we are the largest private group of Relationship Help Specialists in Australia today.
Our team of 72 PSYCHOLOGISTS at 80 locations Australia wide have a vision, and that is to provide the most highly regarded and comprehensive marriage counselling and relationship counselling, and sex therapy in Australia, at reasonable rates.
In Adelaide our Psychologists, Peter, Ros, Andrea and Rae have been specifically chosen because they care about you as clients; they have their own expertise in couples counselling, and they are passionate about the importance of relationships in our lives.
Couples counselling is a very specific type of counselling.
So, at the Hart Centre we make sure that our Psychologists are well trained, by taking part in both our Initial training and, in addition, we hold yearly In-House conferences specializing in couples Methodologies with overseas world class presenters.
We are all Psychologists, so you may be eligible for Medicare & Private Health Insurance Rebates.
While every couple’e situation is unique, our clients feedback is that 90 – 95 % of our couples report that they have found our counselling helpful.
Couples Counselling and Marriage counselling sessions are 50 mins
Cost: $160 ($175 for after hours sessions)

No-one enters a relationship planning on having problems. But over time, they can gradually develop, and create havoc in the rest of your life.
And this is because, largely, very few of us have been taught how to have a healthy and vibrant relationship. Also our expectations of a relationship has risen over the last 30 years as well.
Most of us are doing the best with what we know, and then researching on- line for further information, but when this doesn’t offer the help we need, are not sure what to do next.
It can be very painful to feel a loss of love, where once there was a mutual love and support even in difficult times.
Once there is a level of difficulty, then communication problems can make these worse, as either long silences or continued arguments can keep a negative override cycle going for a long time.
A Relationship usually evolves through a number of Stages as it progresses. If you would like to know what stage your relationship is at, you can go here.
As Psychologists with a specialty in relationships, we can help you with any of the following relationship difficulties:
- Controlling behaviour and attempts to be in control
- Emotional abuse
- Inequality in your relationship
- Diminished intimacy
- Poor methods of communicating
- Feeling of not being loved
- Neglecting each other
- Problems in your sex life
- Issues that have carried through from childhood
- Differences of opinion on how to parent your children
- Managing Step children
- Handling your anger
- Pornography overuse
- Pre-marriage sessions to help build a strong marriage
- Issues with a partner who is very self centred
If you have any specific relationship issues, please feel free to visit our Relationship and Sex Advice page or search on the top of each each page for your topic.
The quality of our service to you is very important to us, as we know how important your relationship is for you in your life.
We also take pride in our very positive approach to our couples counselling.
We take great care to really understand the problems and perspectives of each of you before giving you insight into what dynamics are at play in your relationship that you might not have realised were there.
Then we make sure that we provide you with a positive game plan for you to move forward towards, so that you can feel a real sense of hope for your relationship, and you are taking the steps needed toward this goal.

When you speak and don’t really feel heard by your partner
When your relationship is not travelling well, almost all couples feel that they cant communicate their feelings and be truly heard.
Even though you know that communication is important to have, it can be very difficult not to negatively bounce off each other when things are not happy between you.
And when you don’t feel heard, you usually don’t want to bother listening to your partner either. That then results in a lose-lose situation, with both of you feeling resentful.
So, it’s important to learn how to express yourself well, and also ensure that you each truly listen to each other.
In our feedback from many clients, they comment primarily that our counselling has helped them communicate far more effectively with each other, making their whole relationship seems easier, close and more loving.
