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 Marietta, GA 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 Marietta, GA 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.

Hopelessness and Loneliness: They Go Hand in Hand – Therapists in Marietta, GA

It’s common for people who deal with chronic loneliness to feel hopeless. It often feels that there simply isn’t an answer to the problems of social isolation and being lonely. The truth is that a counselor can help in most cases. If you think you could benefit from professional help, reach out to Thriveworks in Marietta to schedule your first loneliness counseling session. We’re here to help.

Improving Loneliness: First Steps

The first step is for your counselor to assess you and your situation. Your loneliness and social isolation could be caused by an underlying medical condition or mental health issue. If that’s the case, then that medical condition or mental health issue will likely be dealt with first.

Finding the Right Interventions

There are a number of actions clients can take to put an end to their loneliness. We’ll provide you with comprehensive tips and suggestions based on your specific situation but some common options include:

  • Learning how to improve social skills. Oftentimes, loneliness is caused by the lack of interpersonal skills needed to create new relationships. Counselors can help clients be less socially awkward, teach them how to talk on the phone, and how to get comfortable with silence.
  • Improving social support. It’s common for people who are experiencing loneliness to be a victim of changing circumstances. For example, people dealing with a recent death, relocated older people, and the children of divorce.
  • Finding new options for social interaction. Counselors can help clients learn how to meet other people and provide support as they clients do so.
  • Changing the way you think. Research has shown that over time, people who have chronic loneliness may become overly sensitive to it and constantly view the actions of others as hostile or as though they’re being rejected. Counselors can help clients to stop automatically thinking the worst of people.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
