What is an Emotional Affair?

emotional affair therapy

Hypnosis is an effective modality to changing your thinking and automated actions about emotional affairs. Meridian Peak Hypnosis works with clients worldwide.

An emotional affair is sometimes referred to as an “affair of the heart” which can emerge from a friendship and progress toward personal intimacy but often does not progress into a sexual relationship.

Emotional affairs often becomes so engaging and consuming for someone that they spend more energy and attention in the relationship that they allow their primary relationship to become secondary.

While an emotional affair is defined as not physical, sharing so much information can make a relationship much more familiar and make passing barriers toward sexual relationships much quicker and easier.

Signs You’re Having an Emotional Affair

Frequent contact when you are not together. You frequently communicate with this person and at questionable hours. You devote a lot of time texting, emailing or calling this person.
You discuss very personal topics, such as the problems in your current relationship. You share all or most of your problems and concerns with this person. As you do this, you also grow more discontent with your spouse.
This person takes over your thoughts.  You think about him or her constantly. This person is on your mind when you wake up in the morning, when you go to sleep at night, and a lot of time in between.
You spend a lot of time together. You find excuses or create reasons to spend time with him or her.
He or she becomes the first person you want to call with any “news.” You have some exciting news to share or you have had a bad day and this is the person whom you call. You may not be sharing much at all with your spouse anymore.
You believe this person really “gets” you. You start to feel like he or she really understands you, even better than your spouse.
You start to lie or keep secrets. This usually entails lying by omission. If you purposely do not tell your spouse about your talks, meetings, lunches, texts and phone calls this is an emotional affair. Are you deleting messages from your phone or do you deny the communication you have with him/her when asked? If you are hiding things or lying when you know deep down that the behavior is not okay. Would you be mortified if your spouse heard a taped conversation between you two?
You frequently compare your spouse to him or her. You may get angry with your spouse for not doing things like the other person does. You start to idealize this person while your partner begins to look worse in your eyes. You may find yourself being more critical of your spouse. This is sure to create a good guy/bad guy dynamic between these two people.
Your spouse gets less of you while your special person gets more. Whether it is less communication, affection, your thoughts, or your innermost world, your time and focus are taken from your partner and transferred to this other person.

Emotional Affairs and the Power of Hypnosis to Change Automated Responses and Reactions

Once you’ve decided its time to end an emotional affair, hypnosis is a powerful tool to change automated responses, actions and reactions. Automated responses, actions and reactions are all stored in the subconscious mind which is the part of the mind that traditional counseling and will power simply cannot access. By using this powerful part of your mind to replace what no longer serves you, actions and reactions begin to change.

Hypnosis is proven more effective than traditional counseling

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
