Infidelity and Adultery Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Charlotte

Marriage and monogamous relationships are an integral part of human nature and they exist in almost every culture on the planet. Infidelity is, surprisingly, just as ubiquitous as monogamous relationships, it occurs in the majority of societies and is universally condemned. This co-existence of monogamy and infidelity across different societies and cultures could lead one to believe that adultery is an intrinsic element of human nature.

Experts have estimated that between 20%-40% of American married men will have an extramarital relationship during their married life. For American women these figures are lower: 20%-25% of all married females are estimated to commit infidelity. The reasons behind an act of adultery are always particular to the individual and a variety of different factors influence one’s likelihood to cheat. The pervasive and seemingly normal occurrence of infidelity, combined with the complex reasons for one committing the act make dealing with the fallout particularly hard – counseling for infidelity can therefore be a particularly helpful part of this process.

Types Of Infidelity

Infidelity is not a simple phenomenon, experts recognize its 3 major forms – sexual infidelity, romantic infidelity and sexual and romantic infidelity combined. The type of infidelity a couple has been subjected to will undoubtedly determine the course that a relationship takes after disclosure. A simple act of sexual infidelity may be easier to reconcile, whereas when the unfaithful partner is involved in a romantic and sexual relation with a third person the couple is often more likely to part ways.

Counseling For Infidelity – Can It Help?

No matter what type of infidelity one has been affected by, the victim will experience a range of emotions as a result – grief, anger or distrust, for example. The ‘guilty’ partner will have a similar emotional experience, feelings such as remorse or extreme guilt are particularly common. This emotional intensity makes reconciliation or an amicable separation a hard to thing to achieve without the professional support. Counseling for infidelity can create an environment in which the communication necessary to achieve an amicable end to the relationship or to fully reconcile can be attained.

Her use of meditation techniques to get to the root of my emotions and habits have helped me understand so much about myself and why I operate the way I do. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone just starting out looking for a good counselor, or anyone looking for a friendly empathetic professional who listens well and draws from a wealth of information to provide really quality services.
