Loneliness is something we all may experience at some point in our lives. For many, it’s a feeling that only lasts a moment, appearing in certain situations. If you’re feeling lonely, speaking to a therapist can help. It can help you feel connected with someone and supported. By talking to a professional, you can experience validation - it’s OK to feel this way, it’s not your fault and support is available.
Long-term loneliness can lead to a number of mental health problems - such as anxiety and depression - and increase the risk of developing certain health conditions.
Experiencing a mental health problem isn’t easy - and it’s even harder going through it alone. If you are lonely or feel like you have nobody to talk to, reach out to me.
