How to Overcome Cheating and Betrayal

 

Teri-Lynn Wilkins, is a relationship coach who worked hard to overcome cheating and betrayal in her own life. Now she helps others. Here’s why.

 

My radio guest, Teri-Lynn Wilkins, is a life and relationship coach who worked hard to overcome cheating and betrayal. She was married for 18 years with two children, a good career, and abundant wealth. To the outside world, it looked perfect, but Teri-Lynn wasn’t happy.

She had an affair, got divorced, and  began eight years of crucifixion as the ‘other woman’, and then rejection as the one cheated on. She faced the demons of family patterns, childhood wounds, and finally arrived at her own resurrection. 

Teri-Lynn has been in practice for 15 years, having been featured on HGTV and national publications. She is shedding light on the often taboo topic of infidelity, bringing lasting healing to both sides. Check out highlights below for episode #248: Overcoming Infidelity, Cheating, and Betrayal.

These four ladies empathize with women at any stage of love, because they have been there and have literally written two books about it!

Jade, the youngest, found her Prince Charming after many years of dating, and she’s been married for four years. Dr. Argent has two doctorates and has dated around the world. She runs many businesses and is also an author. Renee had two divorces and now owns her own cleaning service with an awesome name, Divine Destiny.
