When your relationship becomes painful

Often, when we have been struggling with relationship problems for some time, it can take it’s toll on the rest of our lives, dragging the life out of us.

Not too many of us have been shown how to have a really healthy and rewarding relationship. Mostly we are just doing the best we can, but are not really sure what else to do to improve things.

But it can be painful to feel you have lost that connection with the one you love most in the world. Sometimes, too, you can feel like you have also lost yourself in the relationship.

Then problems with communicating can exaggerate this, making  the negative override cycle very difficult to come out of.

Your relationship can often move through a series of Stages as it progresses. You can find out what stage your relationship is at

Our approach to Relationship Counselling in Melbourne

Our Hart Psychologists take pride  in taking a very positive approach to our relationship counselling.

It is important for us to really understand the problems and perspectives of each of you, and at the same time, we find that most couples are looking to find a positive action plan and way through their problems to make changes which have a positive impact and a real sense of hope for their relationship.

Listening and speaking your truth can be harder than you think.

For many people with problems, they  find that their ways of communicating with each other are what get in the way of a happy healthy relationship.

Creating really effective communication is  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 and get their message across, but their partner is not listening.

When this happens, most of us aren’t inclined to listen either, as you are not willing to be putting in effort when your partner isn’t, so this results in neither of you getting what you want and a lot of frustration all round.

So being shown 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.

Your relationship can show you insights about yourself too.

If you have been in a number of relationships and have found yourself repeating over and over the same kind of experiences, which almost always happens, we can help you discover the patterns that you might be unconsciously creating, so you can change these and move into more rewarding relationships in the future.
