Why did I specialize in Affair Recovery?
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, Doctorate in Business Administration.
What was clear from all this education, and being to be completely objective in the workplace, 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 treated. How could it! There had to be a better way, and as an entrepreneur and business women, I would find a systemic 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 share with 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.
And it is much “cheaper” than a divorce or a divorce lawyer.
I want to help save your family.
