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 Greensboro, NC 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 Greensboro, NC 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.

Loneliness Counseling in Greensboro, NC—Lonely Feelings and Social Isolation

Do you believe that social isolation and loneliness are the same thing? If so, you’re not alone. Many people assume that they are the same thing when in fact they’re not. A person who’s experiencing social isolation is someone who’s physically separated from the people who matter in their life. They are not experiencing fulfilling relationships.

Compare that to loneliness, which is when people feel like they’re not a part of the world. They could have plenty of close relationships with people they love and still experience loneliness. No one is immune and it’s nothing to feel shameful about.

Lasting Effects of Loneliness and Social Isolation

It’s important not to take these issues lightly. Loneliness and social isolation have bigger consequences than just leaving a person feeling sad. They can actually lead to aches and pains, insomnia, too much sleeping, depression, changes in appetite, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts. It’s essential to get treatment to prevent or minimize these effects.

Is There Really a Solution?

Many people feel that there’s no solution to their loneliness or social isolation. They’ve tried to just create new relationships but they can’t. They’ve tried to just tell themselves they feel better and go out in the world but it hasn’t worked. The good news is that this doesn’t mean there is nothing that can help – we can.

Counselors can get down to the bottom of the core issues leading to the conditions. Perhaps it’s an issue where the client is literally separated from the people they care about based on their location. In other cases, they may be afraid of intimacy. Of course, medical conditions like depression can also be the culprit. Your counselor will help you get the answers you need.

No matter why you’re feeling the way you are, Thriveworks Counseling in Greensboro, NC is here to help. We provide customized assistance takes your past, present, and future into consideration. We’ll listen to you so we know exactly what your concerns are and where you want your path to take you—schedule online or call us to get started.
