Counselling for Affairs Glasgow
At Neil Ward Counselling, we understand the devastating impact an affair can have.
When a loved one has an affair or commits an act of infidelity, the pain can be hard cope with. You might experience a wide range of confusing emotions such as shock, isolation, anxiety, betrayal, anger, jealousy, disappointment, and heartbreak (among many others). It can be an extremely challenging time for all involved, including both the family and extended family.
You probably feel like your world has been turned upside down.
According to the UK’s largest recent survey* into infidelity, affairs are on the rise in Britain. Apart from anything else, with the continued growth and sophistication of the internet, there is far greater temptation and ease for people to connect and meet up with strangers and old flames alike, causing major upset within existing couple relationships. The survey found:
- most affairs begin in the workplace – 4 in 10 women and nearly 1 in 3 men have an affair with a work colleague
- 1 in 5 married women and 1 in 4 married men have cheated on their current partners at least once
- 1 in 5 women and 1 in 3 men would cheat if they knew they wouldn’t get caught
- 1 in 3 people would consider cheating in revenge if they discovered a partner was unfaithful
With such startling statistics, “it’ll never happen to me” just doesn’t apply anymore. We all like to think it will never be our problem, but, if the worst happens, counselling can help you pick up the pieces.
Neil Ward Counselling can support you and your partner through a wide range of affairs and infidelity issues:
- dealing with workplace affairs
- finding workable solutions to internet/technology affairs
- coping with infidelity involving friends/old flames
- managing the shock of discovery
- addressing the impact of infidelity
- affair recovery support
- healing emotional wounds
- understanding and explaining why affairs happen
- dealing with the emotional fallout (children, family members, etc)
Neil Ward Counselling is more than a listening ear. We’re here to help you achieve a practical, workable solution to heal from the pain of an affair or infidelity and allow all parties to move forward with dignity and respect in their future lives. You can come as a couple or on your own.
Here’s what one couple, who came for counselling in the aftermath of an affair, had to say:
“As a couple having marriage difficulties we were in need of help. Although we were apprehensive about couples counselling we decided to contact Neil. We found him to be warm, friendly, professional and easy to talk to.
From our first meeting onwards, Neil set us both at ease and helped us learn to communicate with each other again whilst also providing empathy, encouragement and humour where it was needed.
We managed to solve our issues but we intend to have a marriage MOT with Neil every so often. We thank Neil very much for the help he provided.”
As a rough guide, counselling for affairs is a three stage process involving:
- restoring your equilibrium so that you can function
- looking at the contributory factors that made the relationship vulnerable
- issues of forgiveness, barriers to moving forward, and how to move on
