Raleigh, NC Loneliness and Social Isolation Counseling – Lonely Depression Therapy

Why Are You Lonely? Get the Answers You Seek from Counseling

Many people who deal with loneliness simply assume that it’ll pass – and for some people it does. For others, working with a counselor is the easiest way to move past feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

When is it time to see a counselor?

There are two answers to this question, depending on what your unique situation is. First, if you’re someone who’s lost a loved one and you believe the loneliness is a result of that loss, then seeing a counselor right away is your best bet. While you may be able to move through your loss on your own, a counselor can help you get to the core of pain and heal much faster.

On the other hand, some people don’t have a specific reason for being lonely. Maybe they simply lost touch with friends or they may be happily married with children and still feel lonely – despite all the people around them. For these people, the answer is also pretty simple: If you’ve been feeling lonely long enough that you’re concerned about it, then it’s time to seek help.

How can counseling help?

There is no cookie cutter way for a counselor to help you. If there was a one-size-fits-all solution then you wouldn’t need a counselor, you could simply look up advice on the internet and follow it. You can find plenty of tips and some of them may work for you but they’re not personalized for you.

On the other hand, a counselor can help you find the right solutions for your unique situation. For some clients, the issues are close to the surface. For others, additional digging is required. Without the help of a professional, you could easily believe that one thing is the core issue when in fact the real core problem is something else entirely.

Can counseling cure you over night? It’s unlikely. But working with Thriveworks Raleigh, NC Counseling & Coaching can get you started on the path toward recovery. If you’re ready to say goodbye to your pain, to stop feeling so lonely and to quite being isolated then you’re ready to contact us.
