Starting Loneliness counseling

What is loneliness counseling?

Loneliness counseling is a specialized form of therapy focused on helping individuals navigate the emotional challenges and isolation associated with persistent loneliness. Counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Columbia, MD create a supportive and understanding environment where clients can delve into the root causes of their loneliness and develop strategies to establish meaningful social connections.

How does loneliness counseling work?

Loneliness counseling employs a multifaceted approach, utilizing Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to reframe your negative thought patterns, enhance communication, and improve social skills. It also incorporates interpersonal therapy to address relationship patterns, and mindfulness practices to manage feelings of loneliness and self-criticism. Goal-setting is also encouraged to help you actively pursue social connections and community engagement. Through these techniques, loneliness therapy empowers individuals to overcome isolation, develop meaningful relationships, and enhance their overall emotional well-being.

Is loneliness counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks loneliness counseling in Columbia, MD is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does loneliness counseling last?

Loneliness counseling can take different amounts of time. It depends on how lonely a person is and how they’re doing in counseling. Normally, it involves many sessions that last from a few weeks to a few months. The exact number of sessions and how long it takes are determined with the loneliness counselor’s input.

I have been in and out of therapy (with/without meds) for over 30 years. It really made me happy, something I haven't been in a while, to find people who actually listen and ask questions about your past, present, and how you're feeling. I would highly recommend Thriveworks!!
