Carol Juergensen Sheets, widely known as Carol the Coach, is our fabulously audacious guest today.

She is a legend in the community of recovery from sex addiction and working with partners of sex addicts. She’s one of my personal sheroes and I’m honored and thrilled to have her on the Beauty After Betrayal Podcast.

Carol is a mental health therapist who has been treating individuals and couples for over 41 years. She is a certified sexual addictions counselor and a certified partners of sexual addiction trauma specialist.

She trains clinicians and coaches nationally and internationally and believes that her partner-sensitive treatment approach enhances treating sexual addiction and partner trauma in the relationship.

Her style assists couples in healing the shame and pain of sexual addiction and she uses post-traumatic growth to emphasize a client’s strengths.

Carol hosts podcasts and YouTube channels, and has just released her third book called Help. Them. Heal. Teaching You Both How to Heal Your Relationship After Sexual Betrayal.

Her latest book informs couples on the methodology behind ERCEM – Carol’s revolutionary Early Recovery Couples Empathy Model – to help the couple heal together.

Carol the Coach has decades of wisdom to share with us.

We discuss what led each of us to APSATS (The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists), which Carol is now both Treasurer of their board and Supervisor to clinicians and coaches. Carol joined APSATS after making a profound observation of her clients:

“… My sex addicts were getting better and my partners weren’t, and I just said, ‘you know what – we have got to change up this field and we’ve got to get them more resources’…

And what do you do when you want to change the world?
You change yourself.”

~ Carol the Coach

We talk about the different healing phases from partner betrayal, and how Carol works with couples to heal from sexual betrayal.

You won’t want to miss this fascinating conversation with one of the leaders in the betrayal trauma space.
