At Naked Recovery, we specialize in helping people recover and heal from all types of trauma, from marriage challenges, divorce, bereavement, career redundancy, business bankruptcy, birth trauma, sexual trauma, and more.

Our Naked Infidelity Recovery Program has been uniquely designed to deliver a structured and supported program to confront, work through, accept, and heal from the trauma experienced after infidelity.

Today, we’ll take a closer look at what infidelity trauma is, learn a bit more about the Naked Infidelity Program, and how it works.

What is infidelity trauma?

As humans, we are created to form attachments; we are made to be in partnerships of some form or the other. We form incredibly strong bonds, and when this attachment bond is broken in a marriage or relationship, primal panic sets in for the one that has been betrayed. The pain from infidelity can be so intense that it creates a deep traumatic wound that makes emotional regulation almost impossible.

It’s not uncommon for those impacted by infidelity to experience symptoms similar to PTSD, often called PISD (Post-Infidelity Stress Disorder). Like those suffering from PTSD, betrayed partners with infidelity PTSD can experience flashbacks, nightmares, uncontrollable reactions, insomnia, and dissociation. Triggers can make these people feel the same visceral pain they felt when discovering the betrayal.

Without understanding their wounds, betrayed partners can become paralyzed by pain and overwhelmed with emotion. These debilitating feelings often cause them to lash out, become suspicious, completely isolate themself, or all three.

Without professional help, the cycle of these symptoms continues, and it will impact any hope of healing the relationship after infidelity (if that’s the wish), having successful future relationships, and regaining self-confidence and self-worth.

How the Naked Infidelity Recovery Program works 

We have created a 4-month structured coaching program to support the healing and recovery from infidelity, whether that’s physical, emotional, or even financial infidelity.

A qualified trauma coach will teach you techniques to stabilize and deactivate the debilitating trauma response due to infidelity. The program will help you to identify your trauma response triggers and equip you with the tools to manage those responses so that they don’t impact your everyday life.

The program focuses on giving you the strategies and tools to move forward from infidelity; it’s a forward-focused approach that will help you to proactively manage triggers and reactions before they arrive. Unlike traditional therapy, we won’t keep reliving and unpacking the trauma but rather teach you to support yourself to manage the overwhelm mechanism when it’s triggered.

It’s educational, builds insight, and gives you various techniques to implement moving forward, leading to improved self-worth and self-confidence.

What does the program cover?

The Naked Infidelity Trauma Recovery Program has four distinct stages that we will take you through on our four-month journey:

  1. Stabilization:

The first thing that we have to do is create a stable environment. We will focus on restoring balance in your emotions. We won’t be doing any processing at this stage – rather, we will work on empowering you to become stable and grounded. You need to have a solid foundation and supportive environment in order to transform during the program.

We’ll set goals and missions so that we have a clear starting and ending point. We’ll look at implementing a plan to alleviate trauma symptoms, such as daily routines, sleep, habits, diets, etc.

The core element of this first part is ensuring that you are safe, empowered, and feel stabilized enough to continue with the work.

  1. Compassion coaching

Shame, guilt, despair, and self-loathing are all common feelings after discovering infidelity, and the second part of the course is here to help you practice self-compassion. Self-compassion is one of the most powerful tools for trauma recovery, and it will help you build strength and resilience and start improving your self-worth.

  1. Infidelity trauma recovery

Now that you are stabilized and have relearned renewed self-compassion, it’s time to tackle the trauma and start the healing process. In this part of the program, we’ll outline what you want your life to look like post-trauma and the best ways that we can get you there.

We’ll look closely at attachment theory and betrayal trauma; the victim vs. offender story, and how to get yourself out of the Drama Triangle. We’ll identify your day-to-day triggers and your avoidance strategies, as well as your trauma hot spots. You’ll then be taught how to self-regulate and self-soothe through a number of techniques like TRE, Somatic Trauma Processing, Hakomi breathwork,  Mindfulness, and more.

All of this work and more is done with one thing in mind: neutralizing your coping mechanisms that have created negative outcomes in the past. We want to equip you with positive mechanisms that you can use to create a positive recovery journey.

  1. Release

We will keep supporting you and equipping you with different trauma techniques until you feel like you can completely deactivate your negative trauma response. Once you’ve found the unique combination of techniques that work for you, it’s time to start looking to your future.

We’ll do in-depth work on designing the future that you dream of and equip you with the communication solutions that help you to say what you need to achieve the future that you want. You’ll learn forward-focused techniques that will give you the platform you need to realize the future that you’ve always imagined.
