George's Articles


"Thank you for your kind and gentle touch in dealing with such delicate heart and soul matters." (Sonia, clients say

"George is very flexible and truly caring" (Tish, clients say)

"Here is what is hard for me to say without tears. Thank you for so changing my life. You manage to say things in a way that helps us to understand without feeling judged or condemned. You have given (my husband) a better understanding of who I am and permission to move his mother out of first place in his life."

"You have taught us the skills to effectively commuicate with each other and in doing so have brought us much closer together." (Peter and Kathy, clients say

"I have found George to be an extremely insightful counsellor." (S. D., clients say)

"George is a very trustworthy man and has many years of experience and wisdom in the area of counselling. It is with conviction that I recommend George as a highly skilled and trained counsellor." (Rev. Andy L., clients say)

 "What is important is that you did inner healing. In previous counseling they threw out a lot of stuff (deliverance) but there wasn't a lot of inner healing." (testimony from intensive therapeutic retreat)

"So the precision in dealing with what has to be dealt with is a nice part of this - Jesus leads just exactly to the spot that needs to be dealt with. It gets dealt with and then you are to the next spot."  (Rev. Paul White, feedback on an intensive therapeutic retreat)

 "I recommend George as a counsellor. He is a wise man with much experience." (Father Bill Comerford)

About my Marriage counselling / therapy

Christian Marriage counselling

Marital Therapy - focussed on bonding and the love connection. 

Christian marraige retreats

Marriage counseling Retreats - also focussed on  bonding and the love connection.

Christian premarital counselling

Pre-marital Counseling - package focussed on enhancing bonding, assessing the relationship and understanding personality differences.

I believe that marriages are worth saving if they are safe and life-giving; that individuals are worthy of love and respect and that therapy needs to provide a safe emotional place in the session and in the marriage for both partners.

Office Location: 1454 Dundas St. East, Suite 123, Mississauga (Toronto), Ontario, Canada. L4X 1L4

Office is on the second floor of a mall that is just East of Dixie and on the South side of Dundas.

Phone Counselling or Skype - georgehartwell: fee of $120 per 60 minute sessions pro-rated for longer sessions.

Retreats: When you may come to Toronto for a few days or a week and receive 6 hours of therapy per day it is considered an intensive therapeutic retreat.  It is more effective than weekly sessions for discovering key insights, understanding the interaction of personality with marriage and making significant changes. Nonrefundable deposit is required when booking a retreat.


Retreat Fees and Phone Counseling Fee: is $120 per hour. 

Couple Sessions: Couple therapy fee is $180 per 90 minute session.  I suggest the 90 minute office session to overcome the frustration many couples feel after a 50 minute session where issues may not be either fully aired or resolved.  One person can leave feeling misunderstood and a couple can feel there is not enough progress.

Payment:  Cash or check (on a Canadian bank), or money order in person.  Credit cards are processed in advance by PayPal. 

Discounts  negoiated for those in financial need..

Christian Marriage Retreats

My Christian marriage retreats are exclusively for one couple; involve only private therapy sessions not group work.

Marriage counseling at a marriage retreat often results in the marital bond, intimacy and passion restored at a depth not possible in a group setting.

Feedback from Marriage Retreats

Vern and Mary said: "The non-threatening environment enabled us to open our hearts and minds to see our situation in a more positive way. George's professionalism, and acute awareness of communication is positively unique."

Ed and May say: "We found our marriage retreat with George to be freeing. We are on a new path and direction with the tools that can heal us and change us."

Emile and Mark:  "After our sessions, we felt we had forgiveness, peace and a direction for the future."
"George brought us through our sharp pain and hurt, and took us to a place that allowed us to heal, to forgive each other and most importantly, to let Jesus Christ into the center of our marriage."
