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 Waltham, MA 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. Thriveworks infidelity counseling in Waltham, MA typically includes multiple sessions spanning from several weeks to several months, with the exact number of sessions decided in consultation with the therapist while considering the progress made during therapy and the therapeutic goals.

Need more help deciding?

No relationship is perfect. In fact, most are far from perfect. However, sometimes an exceptionally destructive challenge threatens—and often succeeds—to end it all: infidelity. When someone cheats, everybody suffers from the consequences: the cheater, the victim of the betrayal, and others who are deeply involved in the relationship such as any kids. Each of these individuals struggle in some way, whether they’re grappling to understand why, deciding what to do next, or dealing with all of the pain that has been unleashed.

Has your relationship been turned upside down by infidelity? Are you at a loss for what to do now? Consider working with an infidelity counselor at Thriveworks Waltham. These professionals know just how to help you through this strenuous and confusing time. They will assess your current state, evaluate your needs, and create a treatment plan that will best help you heal. You might feel hurt, confused, or even hopeless right now, but know this: you can move forward and thrive after infidelity. And a counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Waltham can help you do so.

How Can Infidelity Change Me?

When someone commits infidelity, they’ve been unfaithful to their romantic partner. This form of betrayal is often devastating, and it can cause an individual to suffer tremendously. These victims often experience…

  • Heightened anxiety
  • Depressive thoughts/feelings
  • Diminished self-esteem
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep
  • Extreme anger

In addition, these individuals are more likely to engage in self-harm and go on to develop illnesses like addiction or substance abuse. They also commonly make drastic changes to make up for their loss and diminished self-esteem: for example, they might go on a crash diet or work out excessively.

Infidelity can wreak complete and utter havoc on an individual. It can turn your whole world upside down and cause you to question everything you know to be true, and in turn, suffer from the negative side effects listed above. The good news is that you can get help. A counselor at Thriveworks Waltham can help you to address all of the emotions this experience may provoke and determine your next steps. Ultimately, they will help you heal from this betrayal.

What Does Infidelity Counseling Look Like?

Infidelity counseling is an approach to therapy, specifically designed to help couples or individuals cope after infidelity. While each experience is tailored to the individual(s), this typically involves opening up about one’s feelings related to the betrayal, determining the best plan for moving forward (either together or separately), and beginning these next steps.

Furthermore, the counselor can help his or her clients feel comfortable and confident in who they are, again. As mentioned above, being betrayed in this way is often a blow to the self-esteem. A professional can help clients to find that self-love and acceptance again, without the crash dieting or extreme exercise regimens.
