Game of Thrones ending is likely to be one of the hardest moments in anyone’s life, whether it be the over pain of losing our heroes, saying goodbye or sheer disappointment from the shambles that has been season eight.
After almost a decade of the most exhilarating show on TV, Game of Thrones will forever be remembered by a rogue coffee cup and the unforgivably kind death of Cersei Lannister (played by Lean Headey).
But for anyone still emotionally attached to the remaining residents of Westeros, there will be help if you need it.
An online local services marketplace has launched a Game of Thrones counselling service ahead of the upcoming season finale, where fans left distraught by the end game can receive expert advice and counselling on Bark.com.
The service allows members of the public to connect with qualified counsellors, for either 30 minute or hour long sessions, which are expected to cost £20 and £40 respectively.
‘It’s not unusual for people to get attached to storylines and characters from TV programmes and films,’ explained Lynette, a counsellor for Bark.com.
‘We watch them to escape our daily lives and immerse ourselves into the “unknown”. This is the very reason why we sometimes become addicted to watching them, the stories they tell become part of our identity.
‘So when it is taken away, those who felt the ultimate escapism through it can feel lost.
‘However, you can learn to think differently about your relationship with the media you consume, so that it has a positive impact on your life regardless of whether it is still on air or not.’

Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark.com, added: ‘Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV programmes of our time, so I’m not surprised that people are devastated it’s going to end.
‘As ever, we want to provide services that are of value to customers, and I think there will be a fair amount of superfans out there who will need to chat with a professional when the show ends!’
If there are any fans left. Game of Thrones season eight episode five is officially the most slated instalment of all time and has subsequently sparked a campaign from angry fans demanding the entire cycle is rewritten. At the time of writing, the cause has racked up 300,000 signatures and counting.
Game of Thrones concludes tonight at 9pm on HBO and will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic in the UK. Seasons one to seven are available to stream on NOW TV.
