Hi

This post is about becoming a pet bereavement counselor.

Full disclosure: I run such a course. But there are several others (of equal merit) that you can find on the net.

I'm writing this because the course emerged out of my grief at the passing of my last two animals, Cosmo and Aran.

And one way I found of channelling the grief, to which this forum bears witness, is to go and help others.

Sometimes good things can come from bad events; and if you can use your experience to counsel others, maybe it could ease their pain.

And helping someone else can be transformative. It can (in some cases) help you to focus outside yourself.

It won't suit everyone; and to be a counselor you have to put your own emotions away and concentrate on supporting the other person. That's hard at a time when you're in pain.

But maybe, at some point in the future, you might feel stronger, and you might give someone else the gift of empathetic listening.

I hope this post will help someone, somewhere to reduce the pain they feel.
