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.

Infidelity Counseling in Newton, MA—Counselors and Therapists at Thriveworks

It’s no secret that relationships are hard, as we all have unique needs, quirks, flaws, and demands when it comes to romance. But sometimes our relationships are invaded by a particularly devastating challenge: infidelity. When an individual cheats on their significant other, it can have damaging effects on all parties involved: the cheater, the victim, and others who are close to the couple. Often, it constitutes a need for professional help or infidelity counseling.

If your relationship has been tainted by infidelity and you want to work through it, an infidelity counselor at Thriveworks in Newton, MA can help. Similarly, if your partner cheated on you and you’ve ended the relationship, but you’re still reeling from the effects, one of our professionals can help. In any which case, a counselor can assist you in working through your feelings related to the infidelity, determining a course of action for moving forward, and ultimately healing from the betrayal.

What Constitutes Infidelity? What Are the Effects?

Infidelity is often considered the ultimate form of betrayal, as it is the act of being unfaithful to a significant other. This is devastating in and of itself, but falling victim to infidelity can lead to other challenges as well. These individuals may suffer from…

  • Depression or anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Uncontrollable anger

Additionally, those who suffer from this kind of betrayal are at a heightened risk of engaging in self-harm and developing unhealthy behaviors that lead to substance abuse or addiction. These individuals might also decide to make extreme changes, such as going on a drastic diet or working out in excess, in an effort to improve their self-esteem after being subjected to infidelity.

How Can Infidelity Counseling Help?

Infidelity counseling is designed to help individuals manage and adjust to life after this betrayal. It often involves discussing difficult emotions, such as sadness, anger, and confusion, as well as figuring out what’s next. Sometimes, couples are unsure of what to do or where to turn after their relationship has been turned on its head by infidelity. A counselor can help them decide the best course of action for moving forward, whether that’s together or separately.

Additionally, infidelity counselors can help their clients find themselves again. Often, these individuals need some guidance, in terms of who they have become and who they want to be. A professional can help them to feel comfortable and confident in who they are again.

My husband and I worked with Emily for a few months and her guidance had really made a difference in our marriage. In fact, my husband was skeptical about couples counseling initially, but really came to value it after a few sessions; the only reason we stopped was because our insurance changed. Both of us found Emily to be a compassionate and fair listener who recommended concrete tools and practices for us that turned out to be quite helpful.
