Feel free to talk to us

We are all affected by dying, death and bereavement, but it can be a very lonely experience. It may be thoughts of our own dying that affect us, or the death of a loved one, friend, colleague or neighbour. We may want to talk, and ask questions about death and dying, or we might just want someone to listen to us. Very often we are unable to find the opportunity or the people to provide that support.

During this Covid-19 crisis, informed, helpful and caring Soul Midwives and End of Life Doulas are on hand to provide opportunities to discuss death, dying and bereavement through a variety of remote settings. Offering the chance to have conversations that may go some way towards helping you cope with the loneliness and isolation you may be feeling when faced with end of life matters.

Soul Midwives and End of Life Doulas are non-medical, non-denominational, holistic and spiritual companions, supporting anyone facing the end of life, and their families and friends.

We are calm and caring, are skilled at deep listening, and have the time, knowledge and experience to engage with anyone who wants to find out about the dying process, and how best to support someone facing their end of life.
Our work usually takes us into hospices, hospitals, care homes and the local community, working with individuals and families who are facing death and bereavement.

During the current Covid-19 crisis, we are supporting our communities remotely – befriending by phone, supporting those who are caring for dying loved ones at home, offering Death Cafés and Zoom conversations.
