Has an affair impacted your life and your relationships?

Container Affairs
  • Are you suspecting your partner is having an affair or
  • Have you been devastated from discovering that an affair has already taken place?
  • Are you in the midst of the infidelity or struggling in the tattered ruins of the aftershock?
  • Or are you the one who has been cheating on your partner and confused about what to do, what to think and how to fix things?

Regardless of whether you are the the one who has had the affair, or discovered that your partner is having an affair, you are living in crisis. Your world has been turned upside down.

You’re in a state of shock where even the simplest tasks seem hard to perform. Day to day the best you can do is just try and keep one foot in front of the other, to carry on in a zombie-like state.

The awareness of an affair will be causing feelings of desolation, isolation, insurmountable hurt and deep betrayal. These feelings can have long lasting effects of many months or years and for many, the deep sense of loss never completely heals.

You will be re-living the events as thoughts keep repeating around and around in your head. You keep questioning how this happened, why your partner could do this or why you did this to your and why you didn’t notice what was happening.

If left alone, the repeating thoughts won’t simply disappear. Even if you think that you have resolved the hurt, your sub-conscience will still be trying to find answers to why this happened.

External professional support will be able to help you move through the trauma and resolve the pain.

Helping you to either heal your current relationship or move forward into your next relationship without the chances of self-sabotaging it.
