Starting Infidelity counseling

What is Infidelity counseling?

Infidelity counseling is a specialized therapeutic approach designed for couples grappling with the aftermath of one or more partner’s infidelity. It offers a nurturing and non-judgmental environment where both individuals can delve into the underlying reasons behind the breach of trust, openly express their feelings, and collaboratively strive to mend their relationship.The overarching objective of infidelity counseling is to either facilitate a path to reconciliation, should both partners desire it, or guide them through the process of separation or divorce with clarity and empathy.

How does Infidelity counseling work?

Infidelity counseling combines various therapeutic techniques, such as individual and couples therapy, cognitive-behavioral approaches for changing destructive thought patterns, communication skills training for conflict resolution, Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) to rebuild trust, narrative therapy to reframe relationship narratives, and mindfulness practices for managing intense emotions. These methods work together to foster self-awareness, emotional healing, and the reconstruction of trust, leading to a healthier, more resilient relationship.

Is Infidelity counseling conducted in person or online?

Infidelity counseling at Thriveworks Columbia, SC is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Infidelity counseling last?

The number of sessions needed for infidelity counseling can greatly vary based on the specific needs of the individuals or couples involved and the complexity of the issues being addressed. Thriveworks infidelity counseling in Columbia, SC typically includes multiple sessions spanning from several weeks to several months, with the exact number of sessions decided in consultation with the therapist, considering the progress made during therapy and the therapeutic goals.

Need more help deciding?

When you have been betrayed by your spouse or partner, your whole life seems to go into upheaval. The world seems to stop spinning. Everything you thought you knew or trusted is questioned. Being cheated on is one of the deepest betrayals a person can experience in life. It hurts to the core because you trusted the most intimate parts of your soul to this person. In the aftermath of infidelity, couples counseling may be an excellent option. Alternatively, if going to counseling as a couple is too painful or not possible at the time, seeking counseling for yourself as an individual can also have great benefits.

A marriage or relationship that is recovering from infidelity is very fragile. You may have been a person that always insisted that you would not stand for cheating in a relationship. You may have thought that you would never give a cheater a second chance. But once you find yourself in that position, your whole paradigm can change. Are you now wondering if you would be willing to give your spouse a second chance? Do you feel guilty for even considering going back to this person? There is no right or wrong answer in the aftermath of infidelity. Every couple has a unique experience and perspective. When you partner with a Thriveworks Columbia SC counselor, you are taking the first step in recovering from infidelity. You may not know how you want to proceed, but spending time with a trained and experienced counselor is the first step in understanding your feelings and options.

Couples face many challenges in the course of their relationship. Perhaps the infidelity in your relationship has come after years of fighting, slammed doors, trust issues, and nights spent apart. The cheating may be just one symptom of a larger problem. Marriage and relationships can have extreme highs and lows. Your relationship may or may not be salvageable after infidelity. You may want to explore the other issues that you are facing as a couple. Thriveworks Columbia SC can partner with you to make this happen. You do not have to face this challenge alone.

If you have children with the person that cheated on you, the situation is even more complicated. You want to make decisions with their best interest in mind. If you have older children, you may not be able to completely shield them from the crisis in your marriage. At Thriveworks Columbia SC, we can help every member of the family deal with the infidelity in the marriage. Each person will have their own unique response to the situation, and should be able to express their feelings in a safe, healthy environment.

When you are dealing with cheating in your relationship, you are in a time of crisis. When you pick up the phone for help, the last thing you want to hear is that the first available appointment is in a few weeks. In the immediate time after infidelity, you need help now. At Thriveworks Columbia SC, we understand that. We have appointments available for new clients within 24 hours. We respect your time and emotional state. We are ready to help you make this journey of recovery, exploration, and healing. Your life is not over. We are ready to help you pick up the pieces. Call us today.

From the moment I first walked through the doors, I have been treated with respect, and care. I feel so at ease with all the people I have met there. I cannot recommend this team of mental health care providers enough!

I was having a hard time with my partner and was ready to give up, but we took a chance after some research and found the help we really needed. Sometime you need someone to sit, listen, and guide you. Thank You!

It was difficult asking for help, but the staff and therapist ensured that I was comfortable and made it the best decision. I plan to continue going again.
