Sex and porn addiction is unfortunately, an exploding problem, yet it is so isolating for both the addict and their partners. For the partner, it's the discovery, followed by deep devastation, betrayal, fear, anger... you name it. If there's an emotion... partners are experiencing it on a visceral level. Laura has completed her training with APSATS, the Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists. Laura is a CPC-Canidate, Certified Partneres Coach - Candidate. During her candidancy, she will be in supervision with her cases, working closely with CCPC or CPC to ensure her coaching aligns with the Multi Dimensional Partner Trauma Model.
After the discovery...the world stops spinning, and yet at the same time, it's spinning at 100MPH. Everything you knew to be true has now been turned upside down and nothing feels safe, even your feelings may not feel safe. Working with someone who specializes in partners of sex addicts you can be sure you will be understood, heard and provided with a healing environment in which you are able to begin navigating the road a head.
Previous models held the parter as a 'co-addict' somehow holding culpability in the actions of the SA. Let me be clear, you didn't cause it. You can't control it... and you can't cure it. What you can do, right now, is to begin taking care of yourself, attending to your shattered heart. Taking steps to understand where you have been, where you are right now and where you might be going.
