My close friend at university tragically lost her childhood best friend during the summer vacation and is having trouble coming to terms with it. I''m trying to be supportive and helpful to her but I worry that she needs more than a listening ear, hugs and tea. She''s reluctant to go to a counselor as she feels her problem isn''t big enough. While I can understand her pain to some extent I''ve never suffered a sudden bereavement. Could anyone give me advice as to useful ways of coping with bereavement which I could suggest to her? All suggestions welcome. Thanks
