Help with Recovering from an Affair – Infidelity Therapists in St. Petersburg
It’s been revealed in studies that somewhere between 10 and 20 percent of men and women in relationships—married or otherwise—will be unfaithful to their partner at least once, sometime during the course of that relationship. Counseling for adultery has become something that many people have come to rely upon in order to save their families and their marriages from splitting up.
Root Causes of Unfaithfulness in a Relationship
When couples are going through counseling for infidelity, one of the main themes of that counseling is to determine why one partner was unfaithful to the other. There is not usually one single cause, but more often a combination of the following:
- Sexual fantasy
- Feeling neglected.
The above factors are a breeding ground for the feelings and temptations that may lead one or both partners in a relationship to commit adultery with somebody else. Once adultery has been committed the effects can be catastrophic on both the person committing adultery, the betrayed partner, families and friends, and of course the person with whom the betrayer committed adultery with. Plus their families, friends and so on. The all-round effects include:
- Feelings of worthlessness
- Breakups of homes and families.
Counseling for infidelity can help to negotiate each of the above consequences in a sensitive, thoughtful way in order to try to steer a course for a couple to try to get through their pain and come out through the other side.
Infidelity is something that affects and hurts more than most ever realize until after they’ve been touched by it. Professional help in getting through it together is strongly recommended.
