HELP
Emergency and non-emergency

What I offer

I offer non-emergency help.  Unfortunately I am not able to offer help and support if you are in extreme distress.  Please see the details below for obtaining emergency help – but please do seek help.

Emergency help

If you need to speak to someone urgently, for example, because there is a risk of harm to yourself or to other people, please ring an agency, such as the Samaritans, or contact your GP urgently – do not suffer on your own – please get help – please see below:

Samaritans - urgent support

If you require urgent support, the Samaritans provides a 24 hour – day and night, every day of the year, telephone, email and face to face support service:

Your GP

For emergencies:

  • ring your GP practice and ask for an emergency appointment
  • ring the 111 to contact the NHS for medical advice or 999 if you need urgent medical attention

You may also find it helpful to visit your GP to see what help or advice they can offer. They may also have details of other local agencies that they can suggest you contact for support.  

SANE - out of hours support

If you require support, SANE provides an out of hours helpline, from 4.30pm to 10.30pm:

Non emergency help

If you have experienced the death (bereavement) of a loved one – whether a human or animal, you may find that you may be able to come to terms with the death, and may also be supported by family and friends.  On the other hand, you may feel the need for other means of support. 

There are many counsellors, and also many agencies offering bereavement support, as well support for other life issues.  The Samaritans maintains a comprehensive list of these agencies called ‘Other sources of help‘, which can be a useful starting point when in need of support.  I have listed the contact details for the Samaritans, as well as Cruse (support specifically for the bereavement of a human being), and Blue Cross (support specifically for the bereavement of an animal), below.

Agencies

There are many agencies who offer counselling support, for example:

For support with the death of a pet, the Blue Cross offers free telephone and email support.

For support with the death of a person, Cruse Bereavement Care offers free face to face support sessions.
