Cheating in a relationship
Infidelity in a relationship is one of the most common reason for Relationship problems, Therapy can help you deal with the different emotions you are experiencing and facing with the Betrayal. There is so many emotions you could be experiencing during this trying and emotional time. Loss of Trust is one.
In loss of trust, you simply cannot trust your partner and constantly wonder what he or she is up to. You fear what is going to happen next and where your partner is. These thoughts have tremendous negative impact on your day to day activities. Your productivity suffers and your mind is just not on the important aspects in your life, as you struggle to grapple and come to terms with the uncertainty the whole situation has brought into your life.
"you simply cannot trust your partner and constantly wonder what he or she is up to."
You may further experience lack of forgiveness and find yourself unable or unwilling to forgive your partner for what they have done to you. Forgiveness is an interesting, yet complicated aspect to deal with in a relationship where cheating or betrayal has occurred. Forgiveness has its time and place in the grieving and healing cycle. There is however other important things that have to be addressed first before you deal with this important phase. You may experience anger as a result of the infidelity and have a hard time dealing with your partner without becoming really angry and upset. This is very normal in this process, and I will help you cope with the anger by giving you tools on how to deal with it.
Therapy also helps you break the cycle of toxic and unhealthy relationships, which keeps you trapped and disconnected from your partner and always in conflict. Through Therapy you will also learn new ways to communicate with your partner, communication is a very important aspect of your relationship it is the way in which you connect.
Therapy is not only for when your Relationship is in crisis, it is important to work on our relationships and keep it alive and exciting, every couple experiences good times and bad times, it is about how we react and deal with things during these times. And also how we can improve on ourselves which in turn will have an impact on our relationships…We need to be happy within ourselves first before we can add happiness to one another….
How does Therapy work
The fact that you have come to this website is a good thing. You have decided to seek help. If you have made this decision after speaking with your partner and the decision was jointly made, it was because you both decided to stay together.
In doing so as a couple you are taking the opportunity to experience healing and make positive change. You have realized that making an investment in your relationship now will help you to restore things now so that you can have a long-term benefit and have a happy and fulfilled relationship for many years to come.
Therapy helps you to see that what you are going through Is actually very common and every couple experience things that they need to work on or improve on together.
How we conduct the therapy is a flexible process. In general if a couple comes to see me then In the first session, I will see you and your partner together so that we can establish what we need to focus and work on together. The second session you and your partner will see me individually so that we can discuss individually any concerns or personal things from the past that you would like to concentrate on. Thereafter we will continue our sessions together and discuss the way forward.
