Loneliness is a mental state that is destructive, a stressful experience, painful and unpleasant. Loneliness happens when someone doesn't feel the intimate relationship both quantitatively as well as qualitatively. Loneliness is divided into two, emotional loneliness and social loneliness. In General, changes in physical, psychological and cognitive in teenagers sparked various circumstances that contribute to loneliness. Studies have shown the negative effects of loneliness such as physical health problems, lack of psychological well-being, social problems and even trigger teenagers to commit suicide. The school counsellor should be alert to the symptoms of loneliness at school. In accordance with its functions, school counsellor has a strategic position to detect up to cope with the case of the lonely. The qualitative descriptive study was designed to describe the counsellor's perspective on issues of loneliness at school. This research used questionnaires that contained open-ended questions with answer forms exploratory. The respondent was the school counsellor in secondary school who come from 12 regencies and cities of five provinces in Indonesia. Result: most of the school counsellor have not paid special attention to recognizing lonely students, not knowing their symptoms and effects, and have not learned yet how to cope. This is indicated by the limited response given by the counsellor.  There was no specific program to overcome loneliness in their schools. This study provides direction to those field practitioners, academics, and policymakers to take steps aimed at increasing the knowledge and skills of school counsellors in dealing with cases of loneliness. Advanced research on various topics needed to enrich the study of loneliness in Indonesia.
