Helping people to come to terms with the loss of a loved one, this is talking therapy where the bereaved party and possibly their family talk to a counsellor.

This is a popular therapy helping people to maintain their day to day lives when a loved one has passed.

Counselling can take place in the home of the bereaved person, doctors surgery, clinic or a special centre for counselling.

It is usually recommended you see a qualified councillor so minimum age would be approximately 18, however there are networks for children counselling children who have lost a loved one. No upper age limit.

You will need a kind, caring, understanding and compassionate manor, some counsellors offer their services as they have suffered bereavement themselves. There are formal qualifications available.

It is very sad when we loose a loved one weather that be a partner/spouse, parent, child, grandparent, friend, family pet, sometimes it is just to hard to maintain a reasonable way of life or accept what has happened, talking to a trained councillors or person who has suffered loss themselves can be of great benefit. There are many organisations around offering counselling and some from volunteer councillors who have been trained to help this is a very rewarding interest.

If you decide to take up a position as a councillor you will need one 100% dedication and be absolutely sure this is for you, the person you are counselling has already lost someone, they don't need a councillor to walk away from them half way through a course.

The potential is to help put peoples lives back on track and that is very rewarding. There is the potential to train as a professional counsellor and work in this field.

Costs can start from nothing but some of your spare time, though if you want to become a trained professional and not just a volunteer, check out the local colleges and universities for courses in counselling and up to date prices.
