Loneliness

Regardless of the influx of electronic media, persistent loneliness continues to be a significant source of emotionally pain. It can be even more of a problem in regards to our physical and mental health. It is common for people experiencing persistent loneliness to also experience issues with sleep, severe anxiety and depression, reduced immune and cardiovascular functioning as well as show signs of early cognitive decline. Cognitive behavioral therapy takes into consideration specific client-factors but generally therapist and client collaborate on: increasing resiliency by strengthening one’s ability to stand strong in new relationships and situations, learning how to effectively decrease focus of potential danger and worry, learning to differentiate feeling and facts, and increasing social supports and creating balance.
