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.

Ever wonder why men disappear? Whether it’s after a few texts or phone calls, or even a few weeks of dating, when men disappear, it sucks. Try this.
