Have you betrayed your wife or significant other?
If so, this group will help! In my work, I see that often, and it is not always done on purpose, but either way the damage can be crucial. When we hurt someone, we may quickly say we are sorry and hope that our significant other can forgive us. Unfortunately that does not always occur, especially if we betray our significant other. When partner’s are betrayed, they often share that the actual betrayal action(s) are definitely painful, but the lying and keeping this a secret can be even worse. Often a lot of repair will have to be done to rebuild trust. Are you in this situation? There is hope! You don’t have to do this alone. Read on about how we can work alongside you to rebuild trust.
Screening is required before attending this group: Please complete the screening form or call Heather at 980-224-3233 or add your contact information and submit below.

How Empathy is a very crucial way to help her heal
One way to help our partner heal, besides working on what hurt our partner in the first place, is empathy. Empathy is not sympathy. Sympathy is saying I am sorry but not always joining your loved one in their pain and emotion. Dictionary.com defines sympathy as “feelings of pity and sorrow for someone else’s misfortune.” This may not always work and can often backfire. I find that many of my clients have to learn what empathy really is and how to best use it. Many of us where not taught this, so it is completely normal to feel some guilt about not knowing how to best validate your significant other and help them. You don’t have to re-invent the wheel, join this group today in order to learn these crucial skills. It can save your relationship!
Empathy can be hard at times, especially during the pain that results from hurting and betraying someone you love. If you are in a crisis after betraying or hurting someone you love (due to lying, having an affair, or being involved in an addictive behavior or substance) empathy is part of the antidote to healing if your partner is open to healing with you.
What is Empathy?
Empathy is defined as “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” This can be hard at times when you are feeling:
- Resentment and more
The Challenge with empathy, especially if you have not been taught this
Many times you may not know how to be empathetic after significantly hurting someone, even if you learned empathy growing up. That is okay. I have found many men to be in the same boat. You don’t have to do this alone. I can help you learn and apply the skills of empathy in a safe, interactive and small therapeutic group. You will learn the concept of empathy and will have chances to practice it in this group which I believe will really be a big part of healing your relationship. These skills can also be used with your children, friends, and extended family.
