Help for Affairs and Infidelity: Intensives for Couples in Crisis
Affairs are common, and in my personal experience and my professional career, I've regularly encountered the crisis of infidelity in countless marriages. This expertise has led me to offer intensive, focused coaching and consulting for couples dealing with the crisis of an affair in their marriage.
There are countless couples who have come to me from Old Saybrook and across the shoreline. I've had outreach from spouses and individuals on the West Coast and up and down the East Coast.
These couples and individuals want to know they're not alone. They want to know what to do next. They are distressed, desperate, isolated, scared, uncertain, and worst of all, ashamed.
It must be only my marriage, they think. It must be only me.
As a consultant helping people navigate the fall-out from affairs, let me be clear:
You are not alone.
It is not only you.
Affairs happen to good people. Affairs happen by good people. Affairs happen in good-enough marriages.
There is so much taboo in discussing infidelity and affairs in a marriage. We live in a culture that uses blame and anger in response to finding out about someone being unfaithful. And yes, those are normal human responses. But there is so much more to it than that. The couples and people struggling with an affair know that they need more than blame and anger. They need understanding, compassion, support. They need non-judgment. They need options. They need to know what to do next. They need to know there is life beyond the pain and chaos, and that the life beyond it can be better.
I'm thrilled to be focusing on my role as a consultant and coach for affairs. Healing and recovery is as unique as the people involved. Intensive, individualized, and knowledgeable sessions allow the parties involved to clear the confusion and begin to move forward.
If you or someone you know is struggling with an affair; whether they are a couple, the affair partner, the spouse having an affair, or the spouse of someone having an affair, they are not alone. Affair consulting can help answer the confusing and overwhelming questions. Visit www.theaffairconsultant.com for more information on virtual and in-person coaching for affair recovery.
