A study by the Co-op and the British Red Cross found that over 9 million adults in the UK feel lonely often or always. And in a survey by Action for Children 43% of 17 – 25 year olds that used their service said they had experienced feelings of loneliness. Less than half of these individuals said they felt loved.
In this podcast, UKCP psychotherapist Fe Robinson speaks to Sarah Niblock, the CEO of the UKCP, to understand why we can feel lonely despite being in a relationship.
