Treatment and Therapy for Infidelity & Betrayal Trauma
Betrayal Trauma occurs when someone we are deeply attached to or depend on violates our trust in an intimate way. This can be in the form of infidelity, sexual abuse, sexual addiction or other behaviors. Victims of infidelity or sexual betrayal can experience a significant amount of loss. Not only can the violation of trust impact the way you feel about yourself, but it can also threaten your sense of sexuality and physical safety. In fact, many partners lose sight of reality and suddenly find it difficult to make sense of their life and their marriage.
The discovery of betrayal is a traumatic and painful event. Feelings can range from deep hurt and disappointment to anger, rage and defiance. While your partner has a responsibility to get help for his or her behaviors, you can also benefit from professional counseling to overcome the crisis of betrayal trauma. At Triune Therapy Group, we can help you navigate the feelings you are left with after betrayal trauma, helping you regain lost reality and restore a secure identity for yourself.
Healing from Sexual Betrayal
Learning that your trusted partner is a sex addict or was not faithful is a trauma that shouldn’t be dealt with alone. Our clinicians are highly trained to help you heal and regain a healthy sense of self. We can not only help validate your feelings and support you, but we can also guide you in important decisions such as determining what you share and whom you share it with, as this can be difficult to discern yet highly impactful for partners of sexual betrayal.
Choosing therapy after betrayal trauma is an investment in self-care that you need and deserve. Left untreated or unresolved, the trauma of sexual betrayal can lead to significant long-term challenges. The first stage of recovery from infidelity and betrayal trauma includes establishing emotional, physical and sexual safety. Our clinicians can counsel you on implementing boundaries and learning to trust again when the time is right.
