Hazard says Mourinho allows him to play to his strengths.
"It's true we do have a special relationship," he told the Independent. "What is good about him as a coach is that he lets us play. He lets me play.
"He is not always on at me and I really appreciate that. If it isn't good he says so, if it is good he says so. He is always direct."
Hazard added: "I don't think I have changed my mentality. You can't change that. I am who I am. He has always taught me to get the best out of myself."
