Fans of the mega hit ‘Game of Thrones’ are coping on Sunday night with the series finale. Or perhaps, some worry, not coping so well at all. And to help with that, there are counselors standing by.
That’s right, for those saying goodbye after eight seasons, countless character deaths, and a final season that has caused Twitter wars worthy of the show itself, the pain of letting go can become overwhelming, apparently.
And that’s why Bark.com has counselors standing by. They’ve launched “a specialised Game of Thrones counselling service” that will “help bereft fans seek support and get the help they need through this tough time.”
Here’s more on the service.
Fans can speak to qualified counsellors (who are familiar with the series) to discuss plot twists and storylines. The professionals will help them digest their feelings and interpretation of the show, which could range from anger and confusion to sadness and grief.
Bark is a UK based website, but offers services to anyone. It’s a web-based service provider matching service, connecting a potential customer to a potential expert, service, company or, yes, professional counseling.
Their Game of Thrones counsellors are available by Skype call for a per 30-minute session fee.
The show’s fans can book “as many sessions as they see fit” to work through the pain at the end of the run or disappointment with the finale itself. “Most importantly the counsellors will be on hand to guide fans on how to move on after almost a decade of fandom,” says Bark.
