Partners of Sex Addicts

Partners of sex addicts need an advocate to call upon.  Feelings of fear, hurt, anger, betrayal, and grief require a compassionate  effective response.  We provide that expert guidance and direction   We have helped many partners heal through sessions that get them answers to their many questions including: “How can I trust him again?”  An appointment today can begin you personal journey toward healing.

Partners or wives living with a sex addicts typically report common feelings, such as aloneness, the sense that the partner can’t open up and tell you about his “real” self. Confusion comes as a result of doing certain behaviors that are still not enough and hopelessness that there isn’t enough. Anger from many unmet needs, as a person and as a woman, are often common. Many of these issues are addressed in the following books and DVDs.

Even if the addict stays in denial of their addiction, the partner can receive help and support for herself. The feelings of anger, loss, loneliness and many other feelings encountered over the years of living with this addiction will affect a person. These feelings need to be dealt with therapeutically whether they stay married to the addict or not. If you would like a more information on a counseling appointment, call (719) 278-3708. As a partner or wife, the addiction is in no way your doing; the addiction started many years before you even met your addict. This addiction would have grown and damaged anyone they would have related to, in any relationship. You can subscribe to our Partners Newsletter by visiting our Newsletter Page.
