Help and Advice Print E-mail

One of the most important things you can do to help yourself with losing someone is to talk. Your family and close friends will cope with their grief in their own, personal way and may not fully understand how you are feeling, and sometimes it's easier to talk to a complete stranger.

There are counsellors who specialise in helping people when someone has died. A counsellor is not a doctor or psychiatrist. They will not analyse you and it is perfectly OK to say that you need to see one. Counsellors are people who are trained to listen and they will help you to find your own way to deal with your feelings.

If you are under 16 you should talk to your parents if you want to see a counsellor. Try at school, visit your GP or contact the organisations listed below to find a counsellor. Your counsellor should, ideally, be trained specifically to help people when someone has died.
