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 Westminster, CO 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 Westminster, CO typically includes multiple sessions spanning from several weeks to several months, with the exact number of sessions decided in consultation with the therapist, considering the progress made during therapy and the therapeutic goals.

Need more help deciding?

Infidelity is a phenomenon recognized across the globe. It occurs in almost all cultures and at surprisingly consistent rates. In the US, any given relationship has about a 25 percent chance of infidelity occurring at some point over the lifetime of the relationship. Almost as universal as the prevalence of infidelity is the condemnation of it. It is very rare for a culture or society to regard infidelity as something acceptable.

If you are the partner who has stepped outside the relationship, one of the most difficult things to get over can be your own guilt. Even if your partner can forgive you, the societal judgment toward infidelity that may be ingrained on your psyche can make it difficult to forgive yourself.

Considering the serious consequences of adultery for a relationship, some may find it hard to understand why this phenomenon is so prevalent. Here are some of the more common reasons behind infidelity:

  • Emotional dissatisfaction in a relationship
  • Feeling of powerlessness
  • A wish to end the relationship
  • Marital conflicts over matters unrelated to betrayal, major life developments, depression of one spouse
  • Low self-esteem, sex or romance addiction, a desire to boost one’s ego and social recognition, a drive to experience pleasure and excitement

Infidelity and the Impact on a Relationship

The impact of infidelity on a relationship is hard to understand. Primarily, feelings of grief will often overwhelm the victim. But once the grief has cleared, feelings such as intense distrust, a sense of instability, damage to the victim’s self-esteem, and a shift in one’s entire perspective on life can develop. The act of infidelity doesn’t just affect the betrayed spouse; it may have a ripple effect through the entire family structure. It can often lead to divorce, which obviously influences the children within a relationship. It can, for example, affect the way that children think about their parents or lead them to develop feelings similar to the victim. If a couple stays together but doesn’t work through the issues surrounding the affair, living in an unhappy household can lead to depression for the children or the parents.

You deserve to have the most fulfilling relationship possible. If you or your partner has stepped outside your relationship, contact Thriveworks Westminster counseling. Our experienced counselors can work with you to heal the pain of infidelity and address the issues that caused it in the first place.

How Can Counseling Help?

Counseling for infidelity is not a quick-fix method that will magically resolve the situation. It takes effort and a willingness to eventually forgive. Forgiveness and rebuilding trust will be tough, but a good counselor will help both spouses find a way toward a solution to the problem. He or she will work with the clients to equip them with the tools and mechanisms that should allow them to communicate constructively with one another.

Counseling for infidelity won’t simply focus on healing the aftermath of an affair. While counseling for infidelity will begin with telling the counselor the basic details of your extramarital affair, the counseling sessions are focused on rehabilitating your marriage, not rehashing the affair. Your counselor will work with you to determine what caused the partner to step outside the relationship in the first place. It’s likely there are some unaddressed issues within the relationship—lack of communication being key in many situations. Or, one partner may feel they have no agency in the relationship, and so he or she stepped out in order to find that sense of equanimity with a partner.

Whatever the cause of the infidelity, there’s no denying how painful it is to work through. In fact, without professional help, it can feel almost impossible. With each partner absorbed in their own feelings about the situation, it can feel difficult to step outside their own feelings to acknowledge their partner’s, let alone develop a plan to reestablish trust and intimacy in a healthy way. A counselor can help. Counseling can also help you develop techniques and communication skills to strengthen your relationship and help you get through any future difficulties.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
