What others are saying
Up until now we have muddled our way through counseling
Thanks so much Suzie. We have found your couples course we have reviewed so far to be VERY helpful and a "breath of fresh air" for both of us as we continue to try and figure out the best way to work through this. Up until now we have muddled our way through counseling, books, etc. and just have not seemed to be able to find a comprehensive approach that has helped make much of a difference for us so far. Finally, we have a sense of hope and direction. Thank you!
I’ve just read moving on from an emotional affair.
Oh my God, I am crying tears of joy right now. I've just read your article on moving on from an emotional affair. I feel that was written just for me. I cannot even believe it. I feel like a person who thought they had a fatal illness only to find out they had a cold. I have been in an emotional affair with a man I met traveling on business. He lives with his wife in another country. I cannot let him go. I refused to let it go further than a kiss and a hug goodbye physically... but I cannot get this man out of my mind. I actually had the thought that it was like a drug addict seeking help and just being told that he is an idiot for using drugs. I could not believe when you compared it to an addiction! Thank you so so so so much for writing that. I am ready to let go of this. You are like that wise teacher... Telling me I am selfish and immoral would not be helpful. For the first time in ages, I feel hope. I had gotten very low. At one point I was...
Your advice has really helped me break free of my emotional affair
Hi Suzie, Just wanted to say thank you to you. I have been looking for advice of this kind for some months now. Your advice has really helped me break free of my emotional affair. For the first time in months, I feel better and happy and the fog has lifted, and I feel able to do what I secretly knew I had to do but just couldn't bring myself to break away for my thoughts and feelings. I realize now what a fantasy world I was living in and look forward to moving on. Thanks again.
I promise you that if you talk to Suzie just once, you will have a different opinion about your wife and yourself and your life!
For all of the men out there who have stumbled across these words because you are thinking of having an affair or are in one now, this isn’t just by chance. You are here because you are supposed to be. If you love your wife and yourself and your family like I do, stop and think about what is real in your life and what you really want. It may be that you don’t know right now and that is okay, but I promise you that if you talk to Suzie just once, you will have a different opinion about your wife and yourself and your life! There is a world of things that make us think we have to be like or act like someone or something else but if you are ever going to be a man of independence and know your place in your world, educate yourself and find yourself. You will find honesty and forgiveness in yourself, your wife and even others. The truth is hard but when you live transparently, you are truly a free soul and the best friend and husband. The day my wife learned the truth about my affair was the best...
Don’t think our relationship has ever been this good
I can’t believe it’s been one year since the “trauma” (not sure what to even call it). I had been uneasy and anxious (for reasons not well understood by me) for the D-Day. But when Aug 26th came, I had forgotten it was the 26th until I saw the calendar and then I recalled all of the emotions and the events and feelings of that day one year ago. I immediately decided to have it be a celebration inside of me and nothing else — I celebrated the witch being gone from the office and gone from our lives. I also celebrate Kevin and our drastically improved relationship. We are learning to more closely listen to the other person, to partner, to have more fun, to be more open and talk about our feelings, be more understanding and loving. We are learning the importance of making the other person feel loved and special and how important it is to show daily affection and admiration and appreciation for the other. I am SOO SOO SOO thankful for Brad initially scheduling us and for Suzie’s help — truly what we needed and we are so grateful to have Suzie as a valuable...
Thanks to Suzie and her unique strategies for surviving infidelity
Hi Suzie & Brad, Yesterday, I also bought the programs Forgiving Infidelity and Releasing Pain and Repairing Trust and Inspiring Honesty in Your Marriage. Thanks to Suzie and her unique strategies for surviving infidelity, my husband and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The road we both want to take is clear now - we love each other and are both willing to improve our marriage as well as to grow individually. My husband took the responsibility for his mistakes and is willing to correct them, and I do believe that we will make it. Thank you from the heart for your wonderful site and pages and pages of support - there are no words to describe how invaluable all this has been for both of us.
I was very skeptical in the beginning
I cannot BEGIN to tell you what a help Suzie's home study sessions have been. I was very skeptical in the beginning and a little put off by the price, but ultimately, it was worth every penny. THANK YOU!
Helped me to achieve a state of mind that I couldn’t believe possible
Greetings from the UK, Suzie. I am extremely impressed with your courses so far. They have helped me to achieve a state of mind that I couldn't believe possible for me — in only a few days ago. I'm now upgrading to the complete collection as I think these will really help us both and our relationship to no end! Thank you.
We look forward to completing the all the healing and forgiving sessions
The most effective information I’ve read or listened to – really well done
Another day of lifesaving wisdom from Suzie Johnson Phew!!! The insights contained in Wayward Rehab is the best, smartest, most effective information I've read or listened to - really well done. Thank you so much!! So grateful to have found this resource.
Today, my heart is full of forgiveness.
Suzie, This experience has been life-altering. You have given me a new perspective and have framed this even in a way that I was unable to do on my own. I woke again at 4:00 am (but) the first words that came to mind were... "Today, my heart is full of forgiveness." I love that man so much and I know that he is worth fighting for. Thank you for your wisdom, talent, charm, empathy & humor.
REAL Love DOES win
I am so grateful for this website!!! I just went through an emotional affair that caused me a lot of heartache, tears, and guilt. When I was finally ready to come out of denial, this site helped me so much! My therapist was not even close in helping as much as this site. I was finally "willing" to let go and that was my light bulb moment. I know I have strong will power and within a day I feel like a new person. Free from all of the angst and anxiety I felt while going through the affair. Realizing that my 16 year marriage is real love, even if it's not as exciting and "fun" (or so I thought, it really was not that fun going thru this!), we have a strong commitment, history, support, children, and longevity that far surpasses anything the affair could offer. I would encourage anyone going through an emotional affair to pore over Suzi's articles and face the reality of the situation. I had to read them several times to make it sink in. I had convinced myself that this was a "real" relationship and if we could just be together my life would...
I went through the whole program again yesterday and today (again!)
I just wanted to thank you again for your quick response with helping me find my password to access my home-study programs. Your website and coaching tools are extremely helpful in my life. I went through the whole program again yesterday and today (again!) and I wanted to let you and Suzie know that they were such a great help. Words can't even describe how thankful I am for having found Suzie's website when I did. Thank you Again!!!!
The program is AMAZING
Thank you so much! The program is AMAZING. I have literally been nodding through the entire thing because I can't believe how accurately it describes me! I can't wait to get some of the other programs she has coming out. Can you let me know when Passionate Monogamy is ready? Thanks again!
I love your site and have found it to be very positive and comforting
I was wondering when the online 30-day courses would be available. Also, when the road to reconciliation was going to come out. I love your site and have found it to be very positive and comforting during this difficult time of my life. Thanks!
I feel much better
Suzie was absolutely wonderful. She made me realize things about myself that I hadn't noticed. I really feel much better! 🙂
Nothing has been as helpful as Suzie’s sessions
We want to share our story and let people know that Suzie's coaching and courses have been very very helpful to both of us. Twenty-three years of marriage to an exec who had a 3 1/2 year affair with a much younger woman at work. He wanted out after 2 years but thought I'd leave him if I found out so she manipulated him by saying she'd tell me and our children. She said she'd leave him alone if he'd give her a child, which he did (sounds ridiculous when spoken aloud). She told me in December via a text which she denied and then proceeded to tell our children two weeks later. My daughter had an amazing relationship with her father and she now can barely speak to him she's so angry. I am trying to get her to listen too but so far she is unwilling. I agreed to stay with my husband and I was stuck in a roller coaster of pain. He has done everything right since the minute I found out and I knew if I could let go of the pain we would have a very happy future, easier said than done. After listening...
The sessions helped tremendously to better manage the negative thoughts
Good Morning, Thank you so much for this, I can't remember the last time someone did something as nice as this for me. I'm so lost, with the aftermath of this. I wish I had someone without judgment to talk to. I don't have any friends I feel comfortable enough to talk with about what happened... only family, and they are biased to my situation and frankly tired of hearing about it. They either want me to move on or forgive! That simple. I needed help in forgiving and moving forward to save my relationship. I was completely upside down on my way of thinking. Suzie's sessions on forgiveness and healing have helped tremendously - to better manage the negative thoughts that run through my head. Warmest Regards! "Change your thoughts and you change your world. " ~Norman Vincent Peale
Thank you for helping me make sense of this chaos
Suzie, I honestly don't know what I would have done if I didn't find your site on the internet this past Spring. (slight variation: "You find what you need to know when you need to know it!") Thank you for helping me make sense of this chaos and paste my shattered self back together! Wishing you the Best - Always!
Thank you so much for your amazing coaching session on Monday
Dear Suzie, Thank you so much for your amazing coaching session on Monday. I will yelp you and put a positive review on your website. You are one in a million. He is now moving back in, he told me he loved me (hadn't for months) and that everybody makes mistakes and that he will get over this. Oh thanks Suzie, you saved my marriage.
It’s the first time in a long time I feel secure with myself and our relationship
Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us. I really don’t know if we could have gotten through these tough times without you and your programs. Brooke has been loving and nice to me and there have been no awkward discussions about the past. We are communicating much better at work and at home. She deserves a lot of praise. I’ve tried to do so all week. I know there’s still work to do, but I’m ready for it. It’s the first time in a long time I feel secure with myself and our relationship and it really feels like I’m living more in the moment and not so much in the past or future. I can’t say thank you enough... coach. 🙂 As Brooke has said before, you truly are our angel. Have a great weekend!
So grateful you recommended the 90-minute session with Suzie
I'm so grateful you recommended the 90-minute session with Suzie. We actually ended up going a little overtime which I really really appreciated. I think I got a lot out of this session. Suzie is magic. Her Wayward Rehab course continues to be very helpful as well. Thank you!! There will be a lot of work and challenges coming up to me in the next months but I am ready to face them. Again I'm very glad I made the choice to consult with Suzie. Please let her know that I'm very grateful for her insight and advice. Hope you guys have a great weekend. (it's labour day weekend up here in Canada)
I looked at her and I said “I forgive you.”
Suzie, There is a small chart I copied into my journal off of your website at the beginning of this dark journey. It contains 3 stages. I can't tell you how many times I have looked at that chart asking myself when I would get to stage 3- Learning and Acceptance? It seemed like I would never truly get there. In an odd twist of fate, it was my trip to CA that gave me the final push. The first week, of my two-week trip proved to be unpleasant and challenging at best. I wrestled my ego what seemed like minute-by-minute. It was mentally exhausting. And it was inside of one of the most impulsive things I have ever done that I found peace. Faced with having lived in CA for 10 years and never taking the opportunity to go see the Golden Gate Bridge, I made the decision to go at 5:00 pm Saturday night. As I made it to my destination and I stood on a hilltop staring over the Bay area with the Golden Gate Bridge in my foresight (a life long dream of mine), I embraced that moment and felt so courageous for taking the opportunity...
Healing the Hurt has made a huge impact on my life
Dear Suzie, Thank you so much for all your hard work. I finally finished listening to all of Healing the Hurt last night. This has made a huge impact on my life. Especially the part on "Ego"... wow! Talk about looking in the mirror. Sometimes it's hard to see the real person you are. Positive changes are being made in my life. Again, thank you!
Our goal is to make this the
Suzie's Marriage Rehab home study program has been great. So many insights that we would have not thought of on our own. Thank you for having these out there to help us along this journey. Our goal is to make this the "best worst thing" that has ever happened to us and with the help of the program, I see no reason why it won't be. Thanks again.
The presentation is concise, methodical and structured
We have been able to access the Marriage Rehab programs. I am really, really impressed with her knowledge and how she presents her material. What I like about Suzie's courses is that the presentation is concise, methodical and structured. You don't have to go through 20 minutes of content just to get a 5 sentence sound bite. Each minute is easy to follow and meaty. Definitely "got the beef" in this! Very helpful. Tell Suzie thank you for making such an amazing resource. 🙂 Cheers!
I’ve read her articles countless times
Thank you so much! I've recovered tremendously since I first contacted you and it's been the hardest thing I've ever been through. I've read her articles countless times over the last 3 months and it has helped me so much. Thank you both. I also thank that God sent me to your website for help. Prior to Suzie, the only thing comforting me was prayer. Thank you for what you do.
After the second time, I felt an honest calming feeling in my stomach
Recently, I came across the GoAskSuzie website and ordered the home-study course for betrayed partners. I listened to it twice in its entirety. After the second time, I felt an honest calming feeling in my stomach. I realized that it was not the affair itself that brought all this suffering to me but MY image that I attached to the event. For the first time in 3 months, I was able to get a good night's sleep and felt somewhat relaxed. Although my husband is still actively in the affair, I have been able to control the one thing that I could control, and that is my thoughts and forgiveness, which gets me through each day. I have learned to take it one day at a time. I do not have a doubt in my mind that with further coaching from Suzie, she will help both of us understand ourselves more, show us how to use the affair as a learning tool, keep our family together and rebuild our marriage and family for the better as God wants us to have. I have never heard of anyone who uses such inspirational, clear, truthful and meaningful words as well as Suzie Johnson....
We are still together, and madly in love once again!
Hi Suzie! You may not remember us, but we (Jack and Nora) were the cattle ranching couple from Colorado. We purchased your Marriage Rehab and did a session with you about a year ago. We are still together, and madly in love once again! If it is possible, we would love to briefly Skype with you sometime to say THANK YOU "in person" (but we don't want to take up any of your valuable time from other couples who need you). If not, we want to say you are incredible (!) and you helped us to get back in touch with our authentic selves so we could get our marriage back on track. Thank you, thank you, thank you. God bless!
Repairing Trust and Inspiring Honesty seems to be the missing brick
Thank you for the swift reply. The 4 sessions I have listened to so far are very helpful indeed. I have read other materials about marriage, but these sessions are by far the best: the advice given is specific, practical and the relief seems to be immediate (although not yet permanent). Sometimes it feels like Suzie is talking directly to me (us). I was just looking at Repairing Trust and Inspiring Honesty. It seems to be the missing brick we need right now to rebuild our relationship. Keep up the excellent work you do, you are truly life savers.
Thank you so much for having these resources available
Thank you so much for having these resources available. Words cannot express how much I thank you for sharing your knowledge. Your advice has helped me not only to walk away from my illicit relationship but also to understand the reasons and rationalizations that kept me there. Suzie's insights have also helped me to begin to work on my marriage and realize the answer to my problems cannot be found in another relationship. I don't know what you went through personally to create this amazing company, but you have been a blessing to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Talking with her made a big difference with me today
I just want to thank you for squeezing me in with Suzie today. She is amazing. She is a great listener, so down to earth, knowledgeable and I am looking forward to talking with her again. I have already learned a lot from her Wayward Rehab sessions. But talking with her made a big difference with me today.
We have been attending counseling for the last 4 weeks
I discovered my husband was having an affair about 8 weeks ago we are committed to making our marriage work. We have been attending counseling for the last 4 weeks but we are getting more out of Suzie's articles and her home study programs than we have been with the counseling. We really appreciate how much she puts into all of her work. Thank you. This has been a Godsend for us
Your advice and thoughtful direction has been invaluable
Dear Suzie, Thank you for the insightful Coaching sessions from March through today. Your advice and thoughtful direction has been invaluable. I look forward to checking in as future months pass by to relay positive progress and to receive your continued successful strategies.
It’s like I knew you!
Suzie, Thank you so much for your time and giving me the tools for my journey to neutral and internal peace. I'm so grateful for the universe for putting you in my path of healing. What amazed me the most was how quickly you not only understood me and my situation but how my mind was processing everything which then you were able to give me exactly what I needed. You were so easy to talk to as well. It's like I knew you! I went back to work after 5 weeks of being home and am not only putting the health issue behind me but also the situation that happened. It's like starting fresh with a new perspective on life. Please keep doing what you're doing, because you're absolutely amazing and are helping so many people like me who have no where else to go. I wish you and your family success, happiness and a lifetime of Love! With Deepest Gratitude
I had an emotional affair with another man
Suzie, This is the most helpful site I found, thank you sooooo much! I had an emotional affair with another man. I feel so alone in this problem because I have to find the way for forgiveness from my husband, and all the information you have is really helping me. God bless you!
