As part of the fight to limit the spread of COVID-19 the new social distancing rules mean that millions of people are now working from home and have very little social contact. Such a significant change in daily routines may increase feelings of social isolation and loneliness.
Loneliness is an emotional response to perceived isolation, typically occuring when a persons needs for meaningful social contact are not met. It is often associated with an unwanted lack of connection and intimacy with others. Most people experience loneliness at some points in their lives, but if left unresolved it can have a negative impact on your mental and physical health.
Therapy can help you to understanding the cause of your loneliness and help you to find ways ways of reversing the negative feelings and to explore ways to help you feel connected.
