Fearful at 4

My normally confident and sociable 4 year old has suddenly become quite fearful, specifically about being alone. He will not use the bathroom alone, does not want to sleep alone, and doesn't want to be in any room of the house alone--even if he can see a family member in a nearby room.
It's not something I can reason with him about.
Any suggestions for ways I can help him get over his sudden fears?
