This is part of the larger Online Affairs website which provides free articles for members of the public impacted by internet infidelity, as well as therapists working with those who have experienced, or are experiencing, online affairs.
Working in collaboration with The Open University, Tavistock Relationships presents a number of short articles on the subject of online affairs. Here we answer questions as to what consitutes an online affair and also suggest possible solutions to help if yourself in such a situation. It is broken down into the following questions:
There are differences between cheating online and technoference. How can we distinguish between the two?
Face-to-face affairs have a huge negative impact on a partner. It seems that online affairs are no different.
If millions of people get pleasure from viewing sexually explicit material, when does it become an addiction? There are some features of online behaviours which may indicate that it’s become addictive.
Our team of clinicians offer a range of affordable counselling and therapy services to support every individual, couple or parent facing relationship problems. Uniquely Tavistock Relationships is the only London based service that provides a payment sliding scale meaning that our services are accessible for all those who wish to use them.
We provide accredited professional trainings in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Psychosexual Therapy, from introductory courses to doctoral programmes.
We also offer a full programme of CPD courses and conferences which provide opportunities for professionals to further develop their expertise.
Furthermore, we work with local and national government, the health sector, education and other voluntary organisations who commission us to develop and deliver training as well as relationship support programmes.
