GriefChat counsellors are experienced in supporting bereaved people and will listen to your story, explore how your grief is affecting you and help you to find any additional support you might need. View the discussion thread. Everyone grieves in a way that is unique to them and their relationship with the person who has died.
Please use pop-up chat box below. GriefChat is a completely free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm or by out of these hours. We know that no-one can understand exactly what your loss feels like to you.
What takes many people by surprise is how strong the emotions can be, how they can change very quickly, and how long they last. Most people expect to be very upset or distressed when someone close to them has died.
GriefChat provides emotional support for bereaved people, access to trained bereavement counsellors and referral into other specialist bereavement services. GriefChat was created by bereavement experts and you can chat directly to a specially trained bereavement counsellor.
