Loneliness Support & Counselling
Most people will feel lonely at some time in their lives. It’s a deeply personal experience that, in most cases, will thankfully pass. But research evidence suggests for a growing number of people loneliness can have a significant impact on their wellbeing and have a negative impact on their mental health, increasing the risk for mental problem such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and increased isolation.

In this podcast we look at bringing the topic of loneliness into therapy. We talk about the effect of sharing and revealing issues and how secrets might hold a key to the experience of loneliness. We talk about the fear of something 'sinister' that might lurk in the background of ur loneliness and how having the conversation we believed we couldn't have releases this fear and maybe even allows something else to emerge.
We talk about the experience of grief and loss and the different kinds of loneliness these can create. We discuss the staying with the sensations of discomfort without negative judgment and allowing change to happen in a natural and personal way. We end by talking about connecting and re-connecting and the risks that are involved.
