The Stages of Affair Recovery

Recovering from an affair is a process that has many stages. Understanding these stages can help you navigate your journey to healing better. Our affair recovery counselling will walk you through each of these stages with care and expertise.

Discovery and Initial Shock

The first stage is the discovery of the affair which usually brings shock, anger, and betrayal. During this stage, it’s important to create a safe space for both partners to express themselves. Our therapists will support and guide you through this intense emotional process.

Rebuild or Separate

After the initial shock, couples need to decide whether they want to rebuild or separate. This can be tough but our therapists will help you explore your options and make the best decision for your future.

Rebuild Trust and Communication

If both partners decide to rebuild the relationship, the next stage is to rebuild trust and communication. Our affair recovery sessions will teach you effective communication techniques and trust building exercises to reconnect with your partner.

Forgiveness and Healing

Forgiveness is a part of the recovery process. Our therapists will guide you through the process of forgiving your partner and healing from the pain of the affair. This stage is about letting go of resentment and focusing on the good in your relationship.


The final stage is to move forward and create a new stronger relationship. Our affair recovery counselling will provide ongoing support to help you maintain the changes you’ve made and prevent future issues. We will give you strategies for continued growth and resilience in your relationship.
