The England player is now expected to focus on resolving the couple's marital problems.
He has been allowed to miss Chelsea's FA Cup match against Cardiff this Saturday to take some time off after lurid headlines relating to his private life were splashed across the papers.
Ray Wilkins, the Chelsea assistant manager, said Terry discussed taking a break from club duties with manager Carlo Ancelotti.

''They just had a little chat, John and Carlo, and decided that would be the best for all concerned.''
