Counselling for Loneliness in Greater Vancouver, Lower Mainland, Greater Victoria and Vancouver Island
Seeking out counselling for loneliness is an important strategy to help you feel more connected with your world. We all 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 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 cycle of loneliness and how to break this patter. At Waypoint Counselling and Referral Centre, we are here to help.
All of our counsellors offer sessions by phone or online with a secure video link.
We have counsellors located in Greater Vancouver, Lower Mainland, Greater Victoria, Western Communities and Vancouver Island. We also offer e-counselling by phone, text or secure video so we can support you wherever you are.
We can help you find the most appropriate counsellor for you through our matching and referral process. Simply contact us and ask to speak with George Bielay, the Clinical Director. He can help determine the best counselling “fit” for your needs and personal style. The right “fit” is one of the most important predictor of counselling success. Or, you can select your own counsellor by reviewing the biographies of our team members. You can book a complimentary session to find out if the counsellor is the right one for you.
