Affairs can be one of the greatest challenges that a relationship faces. The pain and distress can be immense. However, the partnership can start to move forward when both partners decide that they want to take the necessary steps.
Often this starts with understanding that an affair is a symptom of the relationship, rather than the cause of the problem. The causes of infidelity vary and can be very complex, but can sometimes seem to come out of nowhere.
Telling the story and realising that each partner is often in a different place at the start of counselling is a key part of moving forward. It is not a quick process, however forgiveness and recovery are possible. With both partners willing to engage in counselling, there is a high likelihood of the relationship being repaired and moving on stronger than ever.
