How do you get counselling?

I’m not even sure it will help, coming on here helps a lot but sometimes I think talking in person would help too. I do have friends and family but I don’t want to bring them down, I just can’t stop crying. Every time I start talking I start crying and I just can’t bear this pain. I live near Coventry does anyone know of anything available in the vicinity I do drive so it doesn’t have to be on my doorstep.

Hello @Juniper19,

I’ve had a look for you and here are some options you might want to explore.

It sounds like you’d like to talk face-to-face, but if you were interested in video counselling, Sue Ryder offer free online bereavement counselling, which is held via video chat.

I hope that these links are helpful and you can get the support that you need.

Take good care,

My GP told me to contact Cruse. However Macmillan cancer bereavement councillor called me and i have a face to face session tomorrow . Its nearly 10 weeks since i lost my husband of 50 years to cancer. I really dont want to be here. Life is too hard. It’s only my dog that keeps me going.

I know the feeling - the not wanting to be here, my husband of 40 years died very suddenly with a heart attack - it’s my children and Mum that keep me going xx
