My 15 year old son's father died quiet suddenly 6 months ago. He had a very complicated relationship with his father. Could do with help and advice.

he really needs to continue this further, to get the help he needs to get out all what he feels, or what about hypnotherapy? it can get out how he feels and stuff without him properly going through it in person, the hynotherapists can get deep into him them and help. He sounds like he doesnt want to bring up the memories, and has alot of anger to his father, and also anger that hes now died, he needs to address this. I hope he can

He has had about  10 appts with a physchologist which did help him alot. He now won't go, as his father was an aggressive alcholic memoreies which my son has forgotten about has reservesed and he really isn't coping with them.

Has your son been to Bereavement counselling? I have been through this with my son - although my son is 6 but they helped him in a different way through play with other kids in the same situation of loosing people close to them. The counselling helps immensely, it really does, it gets out anger and all sorts of feelings that u darent wanted to cross, or even felt before. I can imagine your son to be closed off with you at the age of 15 about how hes really feeling towards his dad, and i really recommend he goes through bereavement counselling, he needs to talk etc to get it out about how hes feeling. I really hope this helps in some way
