An affair can be devastating for a relationship. The injury to trust can feel like it will be impossible to repair. Once an affair has occurred it can lead to many common feelings that lead a couple to decide to go to counseling. Some common feelings and questions are:

  • Can this relationship be repaired?
  • Do I want this relationship to be repaired?
  • Self doubt
  • Depression
  • Regret
  • Guilt
  • Anxiety
  • Dealing with unwanted imagery
  • Nightmares
  • Needing excessive reassurance from your partner
  • Irrational thoughts or actions

There are too many feelings and questions commonly associated with an affair to list. Therapy for an affair can be very helpful in finding a path towards repairing a relationship. The affair recovery process includes rebuilding trust, learning communication skills, and healing. An affair is never good for a relationship, but it can be an opportunity to build a better relationship than you had before. Valor Counseling has experience in helping many couples achieve the relationship they want after an affair. To start your healing from an affair call (630) 410-1818 or contact us today.
