Coping with Bereavement

We all cope with bereavement in different ways and there is no set pattern to our grief. At Jonathan Alcock and Sons Ltd, we understand that visiting a bereavement counsellor may be the way forward for you and we are very proud to announce that we are partners with SAIF Care. SAIF Care is a confidential service that we are able to offer as we are members of The National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).

SAIF Care provides a range of services to bereaved people over the age of 18, including:

  • A freephone telephone helpline 0800 917 7224 available Monday – Friday between 9am and 9pm.
  • Email support and information
  • Up to six free sessions of supportive counselling by telephone, skype or face to face in your local area

The counsellors are friendly highly skilled and qualified who will help you to be able to understand your experience of grief, develop self- care, coping strategies and support you to deal with the challenges you may still be facing.
