 Relationships can become difficult 

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

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.

Relationship problems usually evolve through a number of Stages as they progress. You can find out what stage your relationship is at

 The Hart method of Relationship Counselling

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.

communication canberra
Communication is essential in a happy relationship.

Most people find that their methods of communicating with each other are what get in the way of a happy healthy relationship. Effective Interpersonal Communication skills are not something that we are usually taught. But for almost everyone who is having difficulties in their relationship, they feel that they are trying to communicate their thoughts and feelings but that their partner is not listening.

Most people then find that they, themselves don’t want to listen when they experience their partner as not wanting to listen to them, so the net effect is that neither person gets listened to, and both are frustrated.

So learning how to communicate your honest thoughts and feelings in a way that your partner does truly listen is a crucial skill for you to feel that you are in a fulfilling relationship. We can show you some simple but effective principles on how to do this with each other.

Why do I always have the same kind of relationship problems?

If you find that your relationships continue to show the same negative patterns throughout your life, we can also assist you with individual help and guidance. We can help you discover the patterns that you might be unwittingly setting up, so you can change these and move into more rewarding relationships in the future.
