At certain times in our lives, we may feel like we are stuck. We struggle with maintaining our relationships at home or work, have difficulty meeting deadlines, or are unable to deal with the emotions of what is happening in the world. Counselling is a way to work through these issues. Here are a few other reasons why individuals and couples may seek counselling: reduced emotional and physical connection due to strained communication and increased conflict, infidelity, workplace conflict/bullying, recent separation or divorce, and an inability to find a suitable partner. These situations can cause immense pain.

The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. People seek couples therapy to address various relationship issues. They may want to deepen or rekindle a connection, address intimacy concerns, define healthy boundaries, break old maladaptive relationship patterns, improve two-way communication, minimize fighting, or heal from emotional or physical betrayal. Couples tend to become disconnected when they feel misunderstood, lack vulnerability, show contempt, fight, feel confused, or be overly critical. Any of these feelings can pull couples apart and couples therapy can help.

We're men who work with men to help deal with things like anger, infidelity, relationship issues and any other issues that men deal with.
Most of us men have been taught that we have to manage things by ourselves. To hide our feelings. Or we don't have feelings. Guess what that leads to? Anger, irritability, relationship issues, work problems, and trouble connecting with our kids, friends, and partners. Maybe drinking too much and checking out, too. Or cheating on our partner, because it's easier than trying to figure out what's going on at home. Maybe you don't even realize how bad things have gotten until your partner tells you that you "can't communicate", you're messing up, and now you have no idea what to do and you're defensive and confused.

If you are searching for a respectful and non-judgmental couples therapist, chances are you've been struggling for a while, just hoping things will get better on their own. My work is focused on couples conflict, relational trauma, and sexuality concerns. Whether the problem is infidelity or another traumatic event, lack of interest in sex, drifting apart in your relationship, or constant bickering and rehashing old arguments, the problems facing you as a couple can be overwhelming. It's natural to feel vulnerable and at the same time yearn for a safe place to talk it out with someone who can help.

I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, specializing in trauma resolution and renegotiation for those experiencing PTSD, C-PTSD, shock trauma, religious and betrayal trauma and other mental health conditions.
Perhaps, a sudden event has happened in your life, leaving you feeling disoriented and confused. Your usual ways of coping are no longer working. You know things in your mind, but your body is reacting differently. By working with the nervous system, you will learn how to emotionally regulate and integrate past experiences so that they no longer control your life. You may be someone who 'feels off,' yet can't identify what it is. You know that you have gone through things in your life but think, "others have had it much worse." However, you are finally at a place where you want to feel better and sort out what that 'thing' is.

Infidelity Counsellors

How does therapy for infidelity work?

A skilled infidelity therapist will provide a safe space for clients to communicate their feelings and concerns. The goal is to be completely honest about what led to the cheating and how it has affected the entire family to prevent it from recurring in the future. The therapist will help the clients work on rebuilding mutual trust and respect and developing better communication and conflict-resolution skills. If the goal is to remain a couple, clients will learn the “danger signs” for their specific relationship, and they will make a renewed commitment to be faithful.

How long does therapy for infidelity take?

Recovery from infidelity can take time, and it can vary from person to person. Generally, a therapist will want to see the clients at least once a week for around six months. Then the sessions can be arranged as needed, depending on the clients’ individual needs. While therapy may end or shift to an as-needed basis, it can take up to two years or more for some clients to fully recover from infidelity.

How does therapy help the partner who was cheated on?

When a client discovers their partner’s infidelity, their trust in the relationship and in the life they had together may be shattered. They often experience mental health symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They don’t always want to stay in the relationship; they may feel ambivalent or may even want to leave. Therapy gives these clients a safe and healthy way to communicate all of their complicated emotions and concerns.

How does therapy help the partner who committed infidelity?

Infidelity often occurs when one or both partners’ emotional needs are not being met in the relationship. Therapy can help this client understand why they cheated and figure out how to address those unmet needs without resorting to infidelity in the future. This can lessen (but not entirely eliminate) the risk of repeated infidelity. Clients who cheat may also feel intense guilt about deceiving their partners, a sentiment that they can work through in therapy.
