Coaching for Partners of Sex Addicts
One-on-one Skype coaching sessions for partners of sex addicts with Diane Strickland are now available through the Sisterhood Of Support.
If you are a partner of someone who is engaging in secret or blatant sexual activities with people other than you, you are likely overwhelmed with hurt and shock. Diane is now offering coaching for Partners of Sex Addicts.
Dealing with this trauma includes:
- a steep and painful learning curve
- a bundle of debilitating trauma symptoms
- a sense of isolation
- a lack of credible research data on this topic
- a doubtful treatment protocol
- lots of expensive “solutions” advertised with no reliable outcomes
- trying to avoid treatment-induced partner trauma
- getting up every day to go to work, care for children and others, etc.
Having the opportunity to talk one-on-one with someone who understands this landscape of trauma and treatment confusion may help you to get your feet under you and begin to find your way forward. But who would you be talking with?
Diane Strickland has been in your shoes. She gets it. She understands what is at stake for you. She knows you have to find your way through this with compassion, fidelity to your core values, and the courage to grow.
On the Married to a Sex Addict website and on the Sisterhood of Support website Diane has been coming alongside women like you for over four years. You’ve probably read her posts and know her a little already. She, too, has benefited from the support of other women and is a testament to the power of that support to move us forward. Diane also authored the ebook “Spirituality for Partners of Sex Addicts: Resources and Roadblocks for Recovery” in JoAnn’s Russell’s “Married to a Sex Addict Survival Series”.
Now, The Sisterhood is honored to have Diane provide confidential one-on-one coaching/counseling Skype sessions to the Sisters.
It’s been a long journey, but this next step also reflects the coming together of Diane’s vocation and ongoing training in the caring professions. The Reverend Diane Strickland has been an ordained minister for 25 years in mainline denominational ministry. Her faith draws her closer to people, instead of creating barriers. She currently has a private counseling and coaching practice in Calgary, Alberta, and has been doing post-flood disaster trauma recovery work in High River, Alberta for the last year. Diane holds three degrees, including two Masters degrees, and also has three Certifications, including one in Fierce Conversations, and one as a Compassion Fatigue Specialist. In her field, she has compiled a strong publications list.
In her own words:
I believe in the women I meet. I believe in them even when they don’t believe in themselves. I know hope resides within them, and is loved into being with courage and self-compassion. What would that mean in your life, right now, facing what you are facing? Let’s find out.
In following a commitment that “partners are the priority”, The Sisterhood Of Support has created another safe place to talk, one-on-one, with Diane.
From B.L.Until I found Diane Strickland on the Sisterhood of Support website, I had all but given up trying to find a counselor who understood the devastating trauma I was experiencing as a partner of a sex addict. Diane gave me REAL and PRACTICAL advice so I could find my way out of a very dark and frightening place.
From L.A.When I discovered my husband of a year was addicted to porn, NSA sex, Massage Parlors, Escorts, Prostitutes and Hookup sites, my world was absolutely shattered. My first psychotherapist told me I was a co-addict, and needed to attend 12 step meetings for the rest of my life. The second one told me I was codependent and would likely end up in another abusive marriage. I had about given up when I came to Diane. Her compassionate yet no nonsense approach to my situation lit my path from sadness and hopelessness to joy and peace. Diane’s experience, humor and her complete presence in every session helped me overcome the trauma and was pivotal in getting me get back to me.
