Rowan Self Help

Overview

Everybody faces many difficulties in life, and at Rowan we aim to help you live better. Sometimes all that requires is a bit of understanding and support, whether through reading online, or talking to friends and family.

At other times though, you need somebody independent and non-baissed who has been trained to put you first and to support you, to come to terms with events in your life or decisions you want to make. That's where our counsellors and coaches come in.

Ultimately though only you can decide what is best for you, and whilst we are happy to help you make that decision, this section is dedicated to providing you with information and suggestions for coping in the meantime.

Bereavement

The loss of someone we love is likely to be one of the most painful experiences we will ever have to face. Losing someone important to us, we can be overwhelmed by our pain and distress and worry that those feelings will never pass. With careful handling, personal insight and the understanding a support of others, even the most depressive of feelings will pass.
