Your children deserve Two Parents… Try not divorce because of the affair

Let me introduce myself. I’m Savannah Ellis. I was born and raised in Sydney Australia, and was a child from a family torn apart by my Fathers affair. It breaks my heart to talk about this with you right now, even though my fathers affair happened when I was 16 years old. I loved my Father dearly.

To cut along story short, the affair devastated my family. I went into survival mode, and “just got on with life.” My Mother has never recovered from the betrayal, and has not been able to move on, even 26 years later.

My father, married the “Other Women” and she was the most evil person you could ever imagine. The stress she brought to my fathers life, killed him. My Father died at the age of 56 years old. The extended network of family and friends were shocked. They could never imagine my father being anything other than a “family man.” At his funeral, the church was so full of people who had come to pay their respect, that they stood around the side walls of the church, and out the church doors, continuing down the church stairs.

Stress killed him. The guilt of what he had done to his life and the family. A true tragedy.

I started studying Psychology at Monash University a few years prior. Originally, I  wanted to work with Schizophrenic patients. My brother, had been diagnosed with Schizophrenia a few years after the destruction of the family. Schizophrenia can be brought on in several ways, and a traumatic life event is one of these ways. However, I quickly learned that a life time of working with Schizophrenics may just send me to the crazy farm too!

I was also preoccupied with having my own family. I was married young. On reflection, this is another fallout of the affair, my loss of my fathers guidance, day to day in my life at an age where I could easily make poor decisions. My husband and I had 3 wonderful children: Sara, Jacob, and Hannah.

I continued my post education while raising my young family, with degrees including: Masters in Clinical Psychology, Masters In Business Administration, and a Doctorate in Business Administration. I worked for large corporations, before starting a variety of businesses from Medical Clinics to Day Spas, and a medium sized Business Coaching & Accounting Firm.

In my clinic, what was clear from all this education, and practical application of theory, was that typical therapy does not help couples over come their relationship challenges. The training I had received could not help the couples I was treating.  There had to be a better way, and as an entrepreneur and business women, I was determined to find a systematic way to solve this problem.

By this time, I had moved to the USA. I started my first Infidelity Recovery Clinic in Las Vegas in 2011, and my second in Santa Monica in 2012. At the same time, I began teach my method to other coaches, therapists, and psychologists, through my newly founded company, The Infidelity Recovery Institute. Our motto at the Infidelity Recovery Institute is:

Saving the Fabric of Society, One Relationship at a Time

What I am about to teach you, is the system I set up to help couples overcome the exact problem you are facing right now.

It works.

It has been tested.IRI ICON LOGO

And it is much “cheaper” than a divorce or a divorce lawyer.

But more seriously, I want to help save your family.

You don’t have to have the same unnecessary ending.

Where to Start?

Each Step of the program needs to be completed. It is a tough program. Initially it is tough on the infidel, however as we move along, you will discover that both people will need re-education and training for their own self-improvement.

This program does work best when you have the support and encouragement from a Certified Infidelity Recovery Specialist. However, for reasons you feel comfortable with, you have chosen to take this course online. This is why your first Step is Commitment.

I will be guiding you through the program, every step of the way, with videos, audio recordings from clinical sessions with clients, JUST LIKE YOU (all couples have consented to the recordings, just so long as you never find out who they are), and exercises and activities that MUST be completed.

Beyond Divorce Provides Holistic Support and Direction for Those Embarking on New Lives after a Relationship Ends

Details Emotional Fallout and Offers Coping Exercises to Navigate Divorce and Move On

Boulder, CO – February 19, 2014 – Traumatic. Painful. Disruptive. Divorce can trigger all of those feelings and more. But divorce can also be a stepping stone to a positive transformation, as demonstrated in the new book, Beyond Divorce: Stop the Pain, Rekindle Your Happiness, and Put Purpose Back in Your Life. Written by Jeannine Lee, ACC, CPCC, GRC, a certified life, relationship, and grief recovery coach; and creator of the 10-week Beyond Divorce Recovery and Empowerment Program, Beyond Divorce objectively analyzes the stages of divorce and offers tools and exercises to get through the emotional upheaval.

“After going through my own divorce, I realized this experience is far more than a tragedy in one’s life,” says Ms. Lee. “There is another—powerful—component that is often missed. Divorce is transformational. It breaks open the protective layers we’ve developed around our heart and soul allowing us access to the courageous, creative, beautiful parts of ourselves—parts which are often unfamiliar.  I wrote this book and developed the companion 10-week recovery program as an aid to facilitating this transformation for those who are lost in the chaos and see no good in it.” 

Ms. Lee’s book takes the reader chapter by chapter from the chaotic ‘Living in the In-Between’ stage of transition, through ‘Resolving the Emotions,’ ‘Managing Your Thoughts,’ ‘Learning What Went Wrong’ and ‘Reclaiming Your Power.’  She covers these and other topics in significant detail and offers exercises and self-analysis tools, including several tips for releasing resistance to help those who need it the ability to move on.

Ms. Lee works with singles and couples in all stages of relationship re-design including conscious divorce, effective reconciliations, successful singleness, conscious dating, and purposeful partnerships. Her many years in the divorce field contribute to her successful results when working with couples who want to avoid divorce, or who desire to explore reconciling after divorce. Her successful coaching style is recognized and recommended by numerous professionals who work regularly in the divorce field. 

Attorney Sara L. Keane Ross of the Ross Law Firm, LLC in Boulder says, “Beyond Divorce offers those experiencing a breakup both a harbor in the storm and a light at the end of the tunnel. I recommend Beyond Divorce to my divorce clients as I believe all going through this painful time can benefit from Jeannine’s well-informed and heartfelt advice. There is life ‘Beyond Divorce’ and it’s critical that folks wading through the darkness learn how to build a new life for themselves.”
