Affairs at Christmas

December 4, 2017 11:01 am

Having an affair isn’t seasonal but there is something about this time of year that throws them into the spotlight. Perhaps it’s the stereotype of a stolen kiss at the office party, the media images of happy families or just the general feeling of indulgence. Whatever it is, relationships, good and bad, can take centre stage in December. Many of our clients who are having affairs fear this time of year. The change of routine can make it more difficult...

“The Strictly Curse”. Are we all just as likely to be victims of the workplace affair?

October 31, 2017 12:37 pm

Autumn is here. Darker nights, a nip in the air and of course, Strictly Come Dancing. There may be a change at the top but the winning formula of sequins, spray tans and “joke act” are reassuringly present and correct. Of course, we can’t help but be a little bit curious about the “Strictly Curse” and where it may land this year. Some are only watching for the frisson and trying to beat the tabloids to their headlines. There’s no... View Article

Regrets. I’ve had a few.

October 2, 2017 11:46 am

Many of our clients come to us not just with past regrets but wondering if they will come to regret their current actions. Often they are looking for a crystal ball to see what happens next.

This is not just about those having affairs.... View Article

The Fall

September 8, 2017 10:45 am

September. If you’re American you’re entering “The Fall”. Perhaps even more of a time for new beginnings than January. Let’s face it January may have the year change but what else? September sees our kids start a whole new chapter in new schools or school years. The weather instantly tells us to dust off our jackets. We ditch the late summer nights drinking rose and begin to think of red wine by the fire. We welcome back our old friend... View Article

It can be the biggest cliche of them all, older boss meets younger secretary and one thing leads to another. But can the age gap affair work out long term? When a very large proportion of affairs with people of similar ages don’t work out it follows that throwing an age gap into the mix drastically reduces the odds of a happy ever after. But we know probably all know relationships that do make it work. Harrison Ford and Calista... View Article

How many chances?

June 5, 2017 12:44 pm

Anthea Turner was all over the media a couple of weeks ago saying she could forgive once but not twice. Jennifer Garner did not give Ben Affleck that second chance but Elin Nordgren stuck with Tiger Woods through numerous affairs before finally calling it a day on their marriage. We don’t know what was going on behind the closed doors, but we do all act very differently faced with infidelity. So how did you or would you react? We asked... View Article

Behind closed doors

“No survey about relationships or sex is ever accurate” The Affair Clinic, May 2017. What is normal? Ok, so this is a sweeping generalisation that completely discredits hundreds of thousands of articles that have ever been written, but between us we’ve met many hundreds of couples who, as a result of said articles, fear their relationship or sex life is not “normal”. But what is normal? Before we settle into a relationship, “normal” is the relationships we saw as we... View Article
