Getting Help for Social Isolation and Loneliness – Counselors in Chesterfield

Social isolation, being physically separated from people you care about, can be a devastating experience. It can feel lead to aches and pains, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, changes in appetite, and can be caused by depression. Loneliness, feeling separate from the world, can happen to people that are isolated or people who have very close relationships. Many people experience both. Fortunately, there is something that can help: counseling.

Get to the bottom of your issues

Every client gets a personalized approach that allows their counselor to help them dig deep and find out what is causing their issues. In some cases, people feel socially isolated because they are – because they live far away from people or because they’re shy and afraid to reach out and make friends. In other cases, they are social isolated because they are unable to go out in the world and be among people.

Likewise, people can experience loneliness for a wide range of reasons. In some cases it’s caused by depression. In other cases it’s caused by a fear of intimacy. It might even be the result of a childhood trauma that the client believed they were over. It’s up to the counselor and their client to work together to find the answers.

The right way to handle these issues varies greatly

There are some instances where the answer is simply to convince a patient to get out of their comfort zone and meet new people. However, these cases are rarer than you may think. Most people dealing with these issues need help to get to the point where they can go out and be a part of the world. A counselor helps them find the tools they need to do so.

Work with an experienced counselor

The key to getting help is a personalized approach. There is no cookie cutter answer. There are no checklists you can simply go down, follow their instructions, and be cured of social isolation and loneliness. Instead, your counselor at Thriveworks Chesterfield Counseling & Coaching can help you find the right path for your specific situation.
