Many people come to therapy following an affair or infidelity and often request urgent counselling having just discovered an affair and desperately need help in coming to terms with it. Sometimes the person who suffered the deceit finds it difficult to move on; and many years down the line it still eats away at the relationship.
Relationship Counselling explores what had been going on between you in the time leading up to the affair. It is vital that you (both) understand the real reasons why it happened. This can be very painful, but helps you know what went wrong, so you can change things in the future.
Affairs, infidelity or cheating usually arise in a relationship that already has some underlying problems which have not been addressed. This can be hard to accept, especially for the person who may feel betrayed. Relationship Counselling can help the person who looked outside the relationship understand what they were seeking elsewhere.
An affair can also have destructive effects on your family, children and friends. Even so, an affair does not always mean the end of your relationship. With hard work, commitment and patience, it may be possible to come through this crisis and sometimes it can make a relationship stronger.
