Infidelity, Cheating and Adultery Counselors in Raleigh, NC

Professional counseling for adultery or infidelity is a growing form of therapy as more and more couples attempt to save their marriages or relationships rather than let them be destroyed. Cheating and adultery has always happened, but it’s really now, in the 21st century, that we are more equipped to actually deal with the damage caused by this than at any previous time.

What is Adultery and Infidelity?

Both adultery and infidelity refer to the act of being unfaithful to one’s partner or spouse. Adultery is more in the confines of marriage—to commit adultery one must be married; while infidelity is broader and not confined within one’s wedding vows. Adultery also means actually engaging in sexual activity; while infidelity can be a mental or emotional state—imagining being with or fantasizing about someone who is not your husband or partner. Either way, both adultery and infidelity can spell doom for the strongest marriage or partnership and often counseling for adultery or infidelity can be a major help.

Both adultery and infidelity spring from a common major source—a general dissatisfaction with the way a partnership or marriage is going. In the run-up to committing adultery, a partner in a marriage might be feeling neglected, lonely, unsatisfied sexually, and emotionally apart from their spouse. Marriages need work and things can get out of hand quite quickly without due care.

Once a partner has been unfaithful and committed adultery, the effects can be alarming. It’s clear that often the unfaithful partner is in denial or has no idea of the extent of the damage that he/she has caused. This damage includes:

  • Breakdown of trust
  • Causing actual, physical PTSD-like symptoms in the betrayed person
  • Causing any children deep emotional damage
  • Depression
  • Guilt.

In order to get through a partner’s infidelity, professional counseling for adultery can help.

hat seemed more uncomfortable than I was after I shared. The next was an awesome therapist that passed away. Before he died he introduced our group to someone new. We were all very reluctant to have to share with someone new, after taking years to disclose out abuse to anyone. Kim is amazing. She allows us to share when we feel comfortable, and seems to know when to just listen and when a reply is needed. It’s very hard to share, to open up and expose ourselves to anyone. I trust and recommend Kim. When I have a rough day or a bad memory, I don’t have to hold on to it. I take it to my safe place, the room where a victim without a voice transforms into a person that matters. It is a safe place where I don’t have to take the burdens I walk in with back out with me.

hat you should just get over it, or if you talk to a counselor you are “crazy.” I have to say that I was definitely taught wrong. I have went through so much, from being in an extremely violent and controlling relationship, as well as other trauma& I am so glad I connected with Kim, and am finally able to heal. Kim is very supportive and nonjudgemental& I highly recommend her!!
