Losing my dad

I lost my beautiful dad just over 5 years ago. I witnessed him being revived by paramedics, something which I can’t get rid of in my mind. I call out to him in my sleep, and can relive every minute of the day that he died, I’ve being diagnosed with ptsd and had many counselling sessions but I just can’t get back to how I was, I suffered a breakdown at work just under a year ago which has led me to counselling which helps in the there and now but once I stop speaking to them I’m a hot mess

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.
