We all need some emotional support at times, for example during the breakdown of a relationship or after the death of a loved one. However help is at hand and there are plenty of places to go to get advice, support and information.
At times you might feel angry, very negative, distressed, anxious, frustrated, lonely and even just numb.
If you or someone you know is struggling, it can help to talk things through with family or friends, or with someone trained in giving emotional support, such as a counsellor.
