In Christianity, witches have always have been on the fringe of society.
It’s the symbolism and mystery that places the witch in wild places throughout literature and folklore. “The witch” is an archetype, a projection of that which is untamed within ourselves and feared by civilized people..

So they can find the ghosts.

Because they don't, dummy. And since you asked twice, because they don't, dummy.
Witches live either with their parents, usually very religious parents. Or they live in condos with odd decor, lots of candles, no men, and a few too many cats.
I've never met a witch who wasn't a rebellious teenage girl or a 50-something single lady with lots of cats. Neither has anyone else.

It's not entirely privacy nor entirely discretion.
Witches are still people, and like normal people, seek likeness. When immigrants move to new countries they generally seek out communities with the same national background or same religion. A witch has trouble finding like minded individuals since their practice was deemed so heretical. A community may not be as socially accepting of the witch's life choices.
The practice of witchcraft, either light or dark, stems from the Wiccan belief, where nature is essentially their god. With this type of lifestyle comes a certain understanding of the visible and invisible forces guiding nature. So various roots and herbs are used in potions, medicine and spells, so living in the woods is potentially walking distance to the supermarket for them.
They have a more intimate connection with nature this way and won't be as likely to be hunted down.

🥴 The same reason why everyone else does.
Privacy and quiet.
My aunties and grandmamas lived out in the light, cupcake. 🤓 They were what you would call witch doctors.
