Adultery Help, Infidelity Therapy – Counselors in Durham

Discovering that your partner or spouse has been “playing away” or cheating on you is one of the worst things that can happen to you. The feelings and emotions brought up from such a betrayal cannot be overstated. Unfortunately, infidelity and adultery are everyday issues that affect thousands of couples and families every day, and counseling for infidelity at Thriveworks Durham is now something that more and more people are seeking in their bids to get their lives back on track again.

Myriad Impacts of Adultery

It’s not just the action of adultery itself that hurts, it’s the feeling of betrayal from someone that you love and who (you thought) loves you back. It’s that sense of knowing that something is broken somewhere and may never be the same again. When adultery hits a couple or a family there is always an underlying reason for it beyond the actual act itself. These can be:

  • Lack of communication
  • Not being there for each other any more
  • Letting the relationship get boring and stale
  • Feelings of neglect on both sides
  • Outside pressures (stress, work) that one partner can’t share with the other.

Whatever the reasons are, it’s important to know that it’s these which need working on. Adultery is not the disease itself, rather a symptom of an underlying deeper issue within the dynamics of the couple. Getting some counseling for adultery will help to find out the root cause of the issue and seek to try to repair that.

Counseling for infidelity or adultery will also help to make you understand some of the feelings that you’re experiencing as either the faithful partner or the adulterer. These feelings can be any or all of the following:

  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Despair
  • Feelings of inadequacy/unattractiveness
  • Feelings of being totally lost and alone.

Time to Move Forward

These feelings are atypical of couples affected by infidelity and counseling will help to deal with them in a constructive way, as well as helping you to recognize the root causes of your issues and offering plans on how to forgive each other and move forward.

If you’re feeling lost and think that counseling for adultery might be something that could help you, please contact us by e-mail or phone and we’ll be happy to give you more information.
