The world of the internet has unleashed an epidemic of cheating culture on us. Snapchat, private messages, Tinder and other apps are reeking havoc in our relationships.
When you find out or suspect you have been betrayed by the one you love, it can throw you into a tailspin and have a significant impact on every area of your life.
When the very person that is supposed to be closest to us and entrusted with the role of loving, protecting and caring for us has been unfaithful, our entire world feels like it’s caving in. The resulting damage is a form of trauma that brings intrusive thoughts, invasive memories, guilt, shame, anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth issues and a host of other complex problems. The pain is very real.
I am a trained APSATS (Association of Partners of Sexual Addiction Trauma Specialists) and offer a sensitive approach to whatever you are facing at this time. We will work together to make sense of your current reality. I can help you develop boundaries that are necessary for you to feel safe again. I will walk you through the next steps you need to take. There is a path to healing and an order to the process that you need to walk through. You are not alone in this struggle.
Traumatic events like this change everything in our world. Often we no longer are able to recognize the person we used to be. We struggle to make sense of how to live the life we now face day to day.
You deserve one on one care to work through these issues. Before your marriage or relationship can be healed you need to recover from this trauma. Or, before you move on to another relationship, you need to work through how this has affected you or you will continue to experience trauma triggers into the future, sabotaging any further relationships.
I hold group support and learning sessions weekly in Saskatoon that I facilitate with a maximum of 12 people. The opportunity to join the established group comes every 2 months. If there is enough interest between these bi-monthly openings, I will create a new group. Let me know if you are interested.
I believe group work is so important for a variety of reasons. In group, you get a chance to meet others who have experienced similar difficulties that you have. These negative events in our lives tend to isolate and alienate us as we struggle to make sense of what our lives look like now. In group, you get to hear how women have re-found themselves after discovery or disclosure.
It’s hard to put into words the multitude of benefits you can get from a good group, but my best stab at it is: You get to sit in the presence of women who have hauled around this heavy baggage and grown strong enough to not only rise above these challenges but extend a hand back to help others work through their pain. We come together as the wounded and as the healers. The power in that is profound.
If you are wondering how a group might be beneficial to you, here is a podcast that discusses the pros and cons of group work: https://www.betrayedaddictedexpert.com/podcast/episode/263b4db1/can-group-therapyaccountability-help
