Infidelity: Can Counseling Help?

iStock_000000948461SmallI get frequent calls from people wondering if I work with affairs. I do. Infidelity is a common presenting complaint for every couple therapist. Research suggests that 60 percent of men and 40 percent of women will have an extra marital affair. That’s a lot of affected marriages when you consider that it is not likely that all the men and women having affairs are married to each other.

The second question that follows quickly on the heels of the first is “Is it even possible to save our relationship?” It is.

    I cheated on my wife, and now she is cheating on me. I am completely lost without her and am unsure what to do. She says she is leaving me, and we have a 3 year old son that my wife has not at all mentioned in our conversations, so I am focusing on his care only now. I need help!

    • I hear your pain and so much more in your message. You sound like you’d like to try to save your relationship. That will be challenging given the incredible pain you have both given each other. But it is possible, if you are both willing to give it a try. It will be hard work.

      Do seek help. Most especially find a therapist who is very trained in working with couples.

      Best to you in this very hard time.
