About Us

GriefChat® - Transforming Access to Bereavement Care

GriefChat was founded in 2017 in response to the long waiting times experienced by many bereaved people who are trying to find support for themselves or for their bereaved family members or friends.

We believe that it is not acceptable to have to wait for weeks or months to talk to a bereavement counsellor, so using the latest technology, GriefChat instantly connects grieving people to professional bereavement counsellors. GriefChat is part of Professional Help Limited, which was founded in 2012 and provides professional counselling, training and consultancy services across the UK.

We fund our chat service through our partnerships with organisations who want to support bereaved people better.

For more information about the GriefChat story, please see our blog post here.
