Counselling for Loneliness

Human beings have an inborn need to feel connected to others. We all need to feel like we belong, that we matter and that we are special to someone. Being alone and feeling alone is basically a threatening state. We don’t do well on our own. We cannot fulfill all of our own needs because one of our needs is to feel this sense of connection.

Seeking out counselling for feelings of loneliness can be an important step. The first step is identifying and validating the state of feeling lonely and the impact it has on a person’s life. Through counselling, a person can understand the viscious cycle of loneliness and how to break this patter. At WayPoint, we are here to help.
