Frequenty Asked Questions

Fitcy counsellors use multiple therapies for grief patients, but Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most effective. That helps the patient to be aware of their negative thought patterns. These thoughts can eventually affect the patient's behaviour, making it difficult to process the grief. The therapist will ask multiple questions about your feelings and emotions and help you come out of severe grief.

Grief counseling is a therapy that aims to help people deal with emotional, physical, social and spiritual loss. When a person loses something that they love, the death of their loved one will usually trigger a grief state in many people. Psychologists used CBT therapy to develop the awareness of negative thought patterns and stable the patient's behaviour to process the grief.

Grief Counsellor or therapist is an experienced healthcare professional who provides therapy sessions to patients who face serious personal loss or the death of their loved ones. Fitcy grief counsellors have extensive experience supporting their patients to cope with grief and resume normal life routines.

Consistent grief will trigger depression if it is not treated on time, and it's the hardest state of grief to deal with. Most of the time, the intensity of grief will be getting lower, but if it's steady and triggering the depression, getting a session from an expert grief counsellor will be the only way to resume life.

What is Grief?

Grief is a response to a loss of any kind. It may be the loss of a loved one, the loss of health after a poor diagnosis, the loss of job or the loss of a relationship. Leading to blues and sadness, grief is a challenging emotion to process.

What is the Process of Grieving?

Grieving is a very individualistic experience. It can lead to a range of emotions, including anger, denial, shame, guilt, sadness, and blues. There is a common misconception that there is a fixed way to grieve, often caused on account of cultural practices, but there is no set way of grieving in human psychology. Everyone processes their emotions in their way.

Furthermore, the duration of grief is also not set in stone. Some people might come to terms with the reality sooner, others might take more time. Similarly, even if you have processed your grief, it may hit you unexpectedly in the future.

What are the Symptoms of Grief?

Alongside sadness from the loss, grief can also cause:

What are the Different Types of Grief?

Anticipatory Grief

This type of grief accompanies an inevitable loss, for example, the death of a loved one with a terminal illness. Even though you are expecting the loss, it still shakes you up and causes immense grief and pain.

Complicated Grief

As the name also suggests, this type of grief takes a long time to resolve. It may even last for years at a time. Unresolved complicated grief can lead to isolation and loneliness as well.

Sudden Loss

In such cases, the loss is sudden, like an accident. In sudden loss, the feeling of grief is also generally accompanied by shock and confusion. Sudden loss can also lead to a lack of closure and denial.

What is Grief Counseling?

A grief counselor at Fitcy Health helps people cope with their loss and grief in a healthier fashion. They allow people to process their emotions, moderate their responses, and come to terms with the new reality.

How Long to Recover From Grief?

There is no fixed timeline for grief. Everyone comes to terms with their loss in their own time, and they should not be hurried along.

What Are The Five Stages of Grief?

While there is no fixed grief cycle, one theory presents five stages of grief, that are non-linear. These include:

Denial

Not being able to accept reality leads to denial and inability to process the information.

Anger

Once the loss is actualized comes anger, especially if the loss is sudden. It is also easier to be angry than to process grief.

Bargaining

In the bargaining stage of grief, people try to make a deal with fate or God, just to undo the loss.

Depression

Another stage of grief is depression, remarked by feeling blue, fatigue, dietary changes, sleep problems, and isolation.

Acceptance

The ultimate point is the acceptance of loss. It does not make the grief go away, but you stop fighting it.

How to Deal With The Grief of Losing a Pet?

At times, the loss of a pet is not considered worthy of grieving, which is a problematic concept. The death of a pet is still a big loss and grappling with it can be challenging. Simply getting a new pet is not the solution. Some helpful things to do include:

Why Does Grief Make You Angry?

Anger is one way people express their reluctance to accept the pain and the loss. It is also a stage of grief. Anger might also be rooted in the injustice of the loss.

What is The Difference Between Grief and Depression?

Grief and depression are sometimes used interchangeably, but the former is an emotion, and the latter is a serious disorder that effects around 4 to 5% of the UAE’s population.

While people tend to experience tears, sadness, loneliness, sleep and dietary changes, and lack of pleasure in both, the symptoms of grief tend to improve over time. However, depression does not improve without treatment.

How to Handle Grief Triggers?

Not knowing how to handle grief triggers can be a problem, as it can then cause one to become bereaved again. Not only is it emotionally taxing but it can also cause mood issues. Some ways to handle grief triggers are:

How Can You Help People Grieving?

If someone you know is mourning and grieving, you can help them by:

Offering Support

Be there for them through their vulnerable time. Offer them emotional support alongside helping them through practical matters.

Share Memories

Some people feel better talking about the good memories that they had. Asking them about the good can help in improving their mood.

Be Patient With Them

Grieving can be a long process, and you cannot hurry it along. So, be patient with them.

Validate Their Feelings

It is important that you validate their feelings, instead of asking them to move on. There is no right or wrong in emotions, they just are. So, let them express their emotions in any way they want, as long as they are not harming themselves or others.

Encourage Them to Get Help

Sometimes, time is not a good enough balm. Some people need help from experts to heal. So, do encourage them to get grief counseling at Fitcy Health. Since it is a remote setup, they can easily get help from the comfort of their home, so try to promote such positive ways of overcoming grief.
