There Is Hope. You Can Recover From An Affair.

Why is it important for couples to recover from an affair?

The pain, heartbreak, and difficulty in rebuilding trust, respect and sexual connection might lead one to assume that it would be easier for the individuals involved to simply leave the relationship behind and embark on their own separate journeys.

However, affairs should NOT mean the end of a relationship. On the same token, it doesn’t mean that one can “get away with cheating” in their monogamous relationship.

How does the 7 Step Infidelity Recovery Program help with affair recovery?

The 7-Step Infidelity Recovery Program consists of critical steps that will help you heal and achieve long-term monogamy. The key is getting to a place where you can have effective communication in order to get to a deeper level of conversation. Deeper conversations build truth and honesty, which is paramount to recovering from an affair.

What does the 7 Step Infidelity Recovery Program involve?

The 7 Step Infidelity Recovery Program was developed by the Infidelity

Recovery Institute (IRC) and uses behaviour techniques and couples counselling to achieve healing, and educates couples on how to have a loving relationship.

Your Infidelity Recovery Specialist will guide you and your partner through the following 7 steps that are designed to change you relationship environment and communication. At the end of the 7 step program, you will be left with life and relationship tools in order to practically change your relationship.

The 7 steps are as follows:

1. Commitment

2. The Affair Story

3. Personal Healing

4. Sex & Intimacy

5. Emotional Needs

6. Forgiveness

7. Moving Forward

What types of outcomes will be achieved through this program?

Traditional therapy may miss the key elements required to heal a couple in crisis. Also, research shows that many couples in marriage counselling will not complete the end-to- end therapy that is required. By having a structured step-by- step “coaching” program, both the couple and the counsellor will know what is required to move forward – away from pain and towards HOPE.
