Grief Support

What is it?

The Raymee Grief Center provides free one-on-one consultations and support groups for individuals and families who are affected by grief. Run by therapists at The LightHouse, the center can help you to understand what to expect from grief, how grief can impact you, and how to heal you and your family.

Modelled on The Dougy Center – the National Center for Grieving Children and Families in the US, the center was founded to give everyone in the UAE the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment. Its treatment programme is based on the following:

Who needs it ?

Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to find the solutions to problems including:

  • Grief is a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one, for children as well as adults
  • Within each individual is the natural capacity to heal one’s self
  • The duration and intensity of grief are unique for each individual
  • Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process

Therapies

Raymee Grief Center runs a monthly programme of free grief support groups including:

  • General Adult Group for anyone aged 18 years and above
  • Motherless Daughter Group for women aged 18 years and above
  • Teen Group for teenagers
  • Middles Group for children aged six to 12 years
