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 Nashville, TN is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

Adultery is a painful word. It summons up images of broken marriages and unhappy families and overall despair. When adultery and infidelity occur in a marriage or in a relationship, they occur always as part of an overall problem, often one that has been in the making for many years. It doesn’t just happen out of the blue for no reason whatsoever. Counseling for adultery can help couples find out exactly what went wrong in their relationships which ended up in one partner or the other being unfaithful. If you need counseling for infidelity, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Nashville, TN. We are here to help.

Getting to the Root Cause of the Issue

The root cause of unfaithfulness in a relationship is unhappiness stemming from neglect or a lack of understanding anymore between the spouses. The relationship has “gone stale,” sex is rare and/or uninspiring, and loneliness and despair are setting in within the boundaries of the relationship. This is a prime breeding ground for an affair.

What infidelity does, though, is brutal. Those seeking counseling for adultery say that the following are some of the prime effects of unfaithfulness:

  • Shattered trust
  • Depression
  • Lack of self-worth
  • Humiliation
  • Rage/anger.

All these feelings come from being betrayed and are very natural. However, they can be overwhelming and consuming without counseling for infidelity, which can put them into perspective.

Infidelity Counseling

For couples that have gone through adultery and want to stick together and work things out, counseling for infidelity is strongly recommended. It’s not easy and can be tough and painful, but being brutally honest about the relationship with an independent professional can really clear the air for the future. A good counselor will:

  • Determine the root causes of the infidelity, looking back at the relationship over the years
  • Work with both parties to reestablish trust and to teach forgiveness
  • Address all the pent-up issues between the spouses to clear the air.

There are many other ways that a counselor can help your marriage, especially if affected by adultery. But the most important thing is that YOU and your spouse need to want it to work as well. If you are living with infidelity at the moment but want your relationship to work, please think about counseling for infidelity and give us a call.
