Bridge to Connection 

A Coaching Group for Couples Healing from Betrayal

Healing a relationship after betrayal can feel overwhelming.

It may be difficult to rebuild trust and restore emotional and/or physical intimacy.  

You may sometimes feel hopeless or lack the tools to heal your relationship, even if both of you desperately want it to work.  

Helping Couples Heal offers a transformative four-week group for couples in the early stages of healing from betrayal trauma to help create a foundation based on truth, education and relational skills necessary to rebuild trust and intimacy.  

 Our structured curriculum addresses trauma, safety, truth and reality.  Every group session also offers opportunities to give and receive feedback from a betrayal trauma expert as well as other recovering couples.

Do you relate?

  • We haven’t been intimate in a long time and physical intimacy feels impossible now.
  • When is it going to get better?
  • It feels like our whole world is now about betrayal trauma and recovery.
  • I keep hearing about disclosure in my support group and meetings.  I don’t understand how that will help.  In fact, I fear it will make things worse.
  • There are so many triggers it seems impossible to rebuild trust.
  • We have such different realities, it keeps us from connecting and it often feels like we are on opposing teams. 
  • We  both feel so much shame. 
  • It feels impossible to rebuild trust.
  • The triggers have not decreased in intensity or frequency even though we’ve been in recovery for a long time.
  • We can’t communicate in a way that makes us both feel safe.  
  • Anger, resentment, pain and defensiveness get in the way of us connecting and being vulnerable with each other.  
  • We don’t have the tools to communicate in a way that makes us feel safe.
