EMOTIONAL

• Shock or denial • Sadness/grief - for deaths and losses experienced - which leads to sudden crying which takes you or others by surprise • Anger or irritability - at what has happened, at whoever has caused it or allowed it to happen - at the injustice and senselessness of it all - at the shame and indignities - at the lack of proper understanding by others, and of their inefficiencies • Feeling of hopelessness • Depression • Fear and anxiety - of breaking down or losing control - of similar event happening again - of being left alone - of sudden noise • Avoidance - of thoughts, feelings, or conversations associated with the crisis - of activities, places, or people that arouse recollections of the crisis • Shame - for having been exposed as helpless and emotionally dependent - for not having done as one would have wished • Mood changes • Numbness - everything seems unreal, like a dream and that the event has not really happened • Guilt - for surviving, for being alive, for still having material things - for things not said or done • Disappointment - for all the plans that are now spoilt • Intrusive memories - of the crisis which are repeated, intrusive and distressing

 

Remember, you are not alone.


DO
• Recognise and accept your feelings as normal responses to extreme circumstances. • Reach out and make contact with others. • Express your emotions - talk with friends and loved ones or keep a diary to help in the process. • Allow yourself to mourn. You have the right to grieve this loss. Remember, crying can give relief. • Express your emotions appropriately. • Keep life as normal as possible after the acute grief - get back to your daily routine • Get extra rest and set aside time to relax. • Breathe slowly, deeply, and well. Relaxation begins with slow, deep breathing from your diaphragm. • Eat regular balanced meals even if you don’t feel hungry. • Get active. Exercise or participate in some regular physical activity. • Be more careful around the home and on the road. • Allow children to share in your grief. • Let children talk about their emotions and express themselves through games and drawings.

DON'T
• Bottle up your feelings. • Avoid talking about what has happened or what you are going through. • Make major decisions or changes in your life. • Depend on alcohol or drugs. • Expect the memories to go away – they may stay with you for a long time to come. • Forget that children experience similar feelings.

DEALING WITH INFIDELITY THE RIGHT WAY
Not all infidelities or affairs will end a relationship

In fact most couples who have been affected by infidelity continue to reclaim their affection and commitment to each other after being in therapy with us. They rebuilt their trust, worked on forgiveness, renewed their committment, and developed greater appreciation for each other. We have counselled over 450 couples who struggled with infidelity and true to clinical research, most one-time or first-time infidelity affected couples do have a very good chance of putting their relationship back together with professional help. Therefore, do not throw your relationship away so quickly.  

Give us a call at 6733 2893.



SEX ADDICTION IS NOT ABOUT SEX, ITS ABOUT ADDICTION

Sex addiction comes in all shapes and forms. What it does to an individual is more crucial than what it is. Its effects can be slow and profound. You live with unresolved shame and endless guilt. You live a double life. It is a soul-killing disease. It eats away your soul. It will strip you of your dignity and self-confidence till you STOP. We have worked with hundreds of individuals who eventually regain their life, dignity and relationships. Therefore, it can be done but you cannot do it alone.

Talk to us, this is your first step to recovery. For more information, please see Introduction to Addiction Treatment. You can contact us to schedule a completely confidential assessment.
