Game of Thrones Finale Therapy Is Now A Thing

Some of us need a little more than time to digest the series finale.

That’s a wrap, folks! Game of Thrones, the 10 year HBO series juggernaut, has finally come to an end. Some were satisfied with the ending. Others, like myself? Not so much. For better or for worse, I find that the more time passes, the more sense I can make of what transpired in the final season and the more at peace I become. It’s certainly an odd feeling knowing that we’ve reached the final final credits for the show, but I have my own way of coping with it all and I’m sure others do as well. However, time and self analysis aren’t enough for all of us out there.

Fear not, dear fans! If those of you out there simply can’t bear the thought of parting from the series, there’s therapy for that. Not step by step life hack therapy, but actual therapy from actual people near you. Bark.com has professional therapists that will help fans “digest their feelings and interpretation of the show, which could range from anger and confusion to sadness and grief,” according to their service description.

Lynette, a counselor from Bark.com, explains in a statement that it’s actually quite common for people to become attached to television shows and movies:

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.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) approach her dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal.

Now, here’s where things get interesting. Fans can book 30 to 60 minute sessions ranging from about $25 to $50. You can choose a face-to-face session, a group session, or even an online session. Additionally, counselors can focus on isolated topics you wish to discuss such as specific character arcs, the showrunners’ questionable writing choices, or just blatant depression.

If any of you truly feel like you’re trudging though life right now due to post Game of Thrones depression, there is honestly no shame in seeking professional help. This is something that was a part of our lives for 10 years and will continue to be special to many of us, including myself, long after the series finale. We all cope in different ways with loss. If this form of coping interests any of you, that link is right here. We’ll get through this tough time one way or another. Stay strong fellow fans!
