The best you can do is to allow him to vent his steam and talk about his feelings till this storm passes. So, she lied --- bu she IS his Ex, so he can be comforted that he is well rid of her. Why on earth was he discussing something so intimate with her for, at all ? Or did she throw this tidbit at him in order to upset him ?
Remind him that either she is in his past, and good riddance, or if she is still so relevant to him, maybe he's not properly committed to you ? So, she was a nasty, lying and manipulative woman, he can pray to thank his God that he is free from her.
Your counsellor is right. Give him time to get over this --- he is the one who needs to do the necessary work, not you. And maybe you can gently remind him that while you can fully understand how angry he may feel at having wasted so much time and pain feeling guilty about her because of her manipulations, he mustnt allow her to manipulate him now yet again, by making him waste een more time being angry about it.
