Dear d,
I understand your feelings, but only a shrink could genuinely help you. Anyone who claims to be an "Inner Healer" is a total quack, with no proper training in the necessary science and other established knowledge. and no proper proof that the methods they use are either safe or effective. No such qualification or method is recognized by any organization worth paying attention to. I wouldnt allow any "Inner Healer" to even try to treat the noisy dog next door, and I'm not at all fond of that dog !
And one of the necessary ingredients in the situation you describe, is Time. Though it is painful to work through the complex feelings after one has felt betrayed and cheated on, there is no shortcut ; but working with someone with actual proper qualifications and methods, rather than someone who made it up all on their own, and essentially gave themselves a bogus qualification, is the onl way to be likely to make useful progress.
