Signs That Your Spouse May be Cheating

  • unexplained charges on credit cards

In affair recovery, we follow a process that we know works for our clients. First, we meet both members of the couple to learn the story of the relationship. We talk about the challenges in the relationship and possible goals for counseling. Next, we meet with each member individually. Our counselors do this to learn about your family history. Additionally, we get to know your relationship history. And, we look at some of the struggles you are experiencing in the relationship. Within that discussion, we want to learn things. Like, what was missing in the primary relationship that brought you to the affair partner? Did you try and meet those needs within the relationship? What were the hindrances to meeting those needs?
The couple will also take an online assessment. This shows both the strengths and the struggles that the couple faces. Afterward we begin to talk about the story of the affair. A requirement of affair recovery is that the partner who is having the affair is no longer seeing the affair partner. If that relationship is still ongoing, it can be hard to work through. Then, there is a “third” person in the room that hinders therapeutic treatment.

Our Goals for Counseling for Affair Recovery

There are a few different goals in affair recovery. Some of the goals include discernment or making a decision on whether or not to continue the relationship. We also look at the relationship to see if there are unmet needs that are going unaddressed. Then, we will discuss healthy ways to meet these needs. Ultimately, we work on rebuilding trust through accountability, repentance or a changing of ways. And, forgiveness and looking at ways in which you and your partner can reconnect.
