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 Newport News, VA 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.

Affairs, Adultery, and Cheating—Therapy for Infidelity in Newport News, VA

Go online or reach out to us at (757) 418-8127 to get started.

Variations of Infidelity

Infidelity might seem like an uncomplicated concept: someone in a devoted relationship breaks the rules of that relationship. That’s why people call infidelity cheating. The rules may be formalized in wedding vows and a marriage. They may be agreed-upon expectations of a long-term relationship.

But reality is almost always more complex than the concept. Adultery can be an emotional affair. It can be a sexual addiction. It can be a long-term, committed relationship. Infidelity can assume an infinite number of forms, but there are a few constants. Adultery always…

  1. involves secrets and/or lies.
  2. breaches trust.
  3. causes relational harm.

Because the secrets and lies occur in the context where truth and safety are expected, they often hurt all the more. Victims of adultery often report being traumatized and experiencing post traumatic stress symptoms. Adultery can turn people’s world upside down, and many people need help navigating the chaos that adultery brings.

What’s the Purpose of Infidelity Therapy?

At Thriveworks Newport News the purpose of our services is to help couples learn the skills they will need to heal their wounds and rebuild a healthy relationship, even if they choose to separate.

Some of the ways counseling may benefit couples who are experiencing infidelity include:

Increasing Helpful Communication
After a partner or spouse has committed adultery, communication usually completely breaks down. Couples may bounce between intentionally avoiding one another and channeling all their anger at one another. While understandable responses, neither cold silence nor hot fury are helpful to either person or the relationship.

Setting New Expectations and Goals
After discovery or disclosure of infidelity, life goals may only involve surviving. The trauma can be overwhelming. With a professional’s guidance, couples do not have to stay in survival mode.

Fostering Trust
Infidelity breaks trust. Learning to trust again can feel impossible, especially for the uninvolved spouse. However, rebuilding trust may be an important step toward healing, even if it means not trusting the spouse who cheated but learning to trust other people.

If a couple pursues divorce, a counselor may help them build enough trust to separate amicably and maintain a parenting partnership if children are involved.

Scheduling an Appointment for Therapy

Thriveworks Newport News counselors are available to help. Infidelity is chaotic, but scheduling an appointment for infidelity therapy should not be.

Our counselors offer weekend and evening appointments, and often work with many insurance carriers and insurance types.

I decided to seek counseling for the first time 3 months ago and I’m glad I did! It’s been a huge blessing for me, and my counselor James Martin is so wonderful! I look forward to our sessions and find myself feeling so good after them. Coming to counseling gives me an opportunity to talk about everything that has happened in the last two weeks and really process it. James has taught me a very important lesson of learning to accept things that happen in life & I’m really happy with Thriveworks. I tell people about you guys all the time!
