Virtual Support for Healing After an Affair
Betrayal trauma and how to heal after cheating needs a professional who has not just dabbed in a few cases, but lives and breathes the nuances and fragility that defines recovery from infidelity and/or sexual addiction. Often times, counselors refer to those of us who specialize, and other times a client leaves feeling worse because an ill-equipped helper accidentally made the situation worse, instead of referring out.
What to Expect in Your In-Person Session
Video sessions offer coaching and support that address dealing with infidelity and the steps that need to be taken to heal after an affair. If sexual addiction (compulsive sexual behavior) is also present, treatment plans are identified. The differences between video coaching sessions and psychotherapy is what can and cannot be addressed remote versus face-to-face.
Healing from betrayal trauma, or any other forms of trauma, often require the use of trauma therapy such as EMDR, ETT (emotional transformation therapy), psychodrama and/or group counseling.
Teams often are created so that video coaching partners with a local therapist specialized in trauma and some sort of group therapy can be locally arranged as well. Whether all infidelity recovery support is local or it’s a combination of remote and face to face, a team approach is not uncommon.
Coping and overcoming infidelity takes a multi-scope approach, especially in situations where chronic cheating and sexual addiction have been present over time. The specialized affair recovery counseling helps to vet the local support to make sure the affair healing process remains safe and maintains continuity.
