Adultery and Infidelity Counseling – Therapists in Knoxville

In America, an estimated 25% of all married individuals will commit an act of infidelity during their married life. Infidelity occurs in essentially all cultures that have been studied, spanning all social classes and as a phenomenon has a long and pervasive history. However, despite its high incidence, infidelity is condemned by 90% of all married individuals in America.

The paradox of infidelity being widely practiced and widely condemned is undoubtedly noteworthy. There are many different factors that contribute to a person’s decision to cheat – the reasons are personal and differ from one couple to the next. There is no exhaustive list of factors that can cause unfaithfulness in a relationship, although some common triggers may include emotional or sexual dissatisfaction, low self-esteem or preexisting conflicts over matters unrelated to betrayal. The individuality of circumstances which lead to infidelity creates a situation in which professional help in the form of counseling for infidelity can be of great advantage to a relationship.

The Challenges Of Infidelity

The consequences of an act of infidelity can be truly devastating for the victim. Relationships are built upon mutual trust and when this bond is broken by the one you love there is a cascade of intensely emotional responses that develop. Some of the strongest emotions that will be experienced include grief and anger; distrust almost always ensues and is one of the most destructive elements for a relationship during this turbulent period. Distrust causes the victim to obsess about the act of infidelity, making the individual focus his or her energy on rehashing the events, facts, as well as actions that caused the act of disloyalty – the victim will feel the need to control exactly what the perpetrator is doing, who they are with or where they are at all times.

Counseling For Infidelity – Can It Help?

The act of infidelity can cause the victim to experience an emotional rollercoaster that will be hard to manage – an environment that provides a forum to air your emotions and thoughts with a neutral guide can be liberating for the grieving partner. A professional counselor for infidelity will do just that – he or she will act as an impartial judge, guiding the communication and discussion towards an amicable solution for both parties. Regardless of the outcome, a good counselor will strive to facilitate the best possible resolution for the affected couple.

Cannot Recommend Enough

Going to Thriveworks for the past year and a half has been the most rewarding counseling experience I’ve had...Read more

. Seeing Lindsey has had the single biggest impact on my emotional and mental health, especially in healing from past childhood abuse and trauma, and ongoing PTSD. Out of multiple counselors in two states, Lindsey Chandler is by far the one with whom I’ve felt the most accepted, supported, and encouraged by. I am grateful for the Thriveworks space, as it is not at all clinical nor intimidating, but entirely warn and welcoming. It is nearly a scent-free environment, which is vital for the comfort of any highly sensitive persons. I choose to drive an hour from home each visit specifically to stay loyal to a place where I finally feel safe and valued—where in the past commuting five minutes from home to work with a therapist felt like a chore and an ordeal—and I will continue to do so as I work further toward a healthier me.
