In this episode…

Have you ever been in a sticky situation and felt unable to reach out to a friend or family member for advice? What if that sticky situation was an affair—do you know how you would work it out? Do you have anyone you’d feel safe enough to call?

More often than not, the answer is no. The stigma surrounding infidelity is pervasive, but what people who are going through this situation need most is a safe space to work through their feelings. This is Dr. Marie Murphy's approach: providing a shame-free, blame-free atmosphere for people to process what they really want without the judgment and anxiety that usually accompanies affairs.

In this first episode of Your Secret is Safe With Me, Relationship Coach Dr. Marie Murphy sits down with John Corcoran, Co-Founder of Rise25, to talk about her approach to coaching clients that are having affairs. Together, they’ll chat about Dr. Murphy's core beliefs as a professional (and a human), the stigma surrounding infidelity, and what Dr. Marie Murphy does when asked if she condones cheating. Stay tuned!
