Background Shape

A counsellor is an impartial professional who will listen to you non-judgementally and is able to work with your emotions whilst not getting emotional themselves.


The therapist helps you develop greater understanding of yourself and others, helps you gain a clearer focus on your problems and find solutions.

How will it help?

When facing a diagnosis of cancer or another life changing illness, you may find that you struggle to cope. You may feel overwhelmed by concerns about the diagnosis or treatment and by worries about the future.

These sessions can help you explore these concerns and find new ways of coping and making desired changes. Therapy can be effective in many different ways but can generally be helpful in dealing with:

  • Coping with the stress of treatment and disruption to normal life
  • Managing anxiety and depression
  • Issues of loss connected with health and/or physical changes
  • Coping with unexpected changes that arise as a result of illness and treatment, such as early menopause or loss of fertility
  • Interruptions to or loss of career
  • Loss of self confidence
  • Fears about the future
  • Relationship problems caused by the strain of prolonged illness and treatment
  • Adjustment to living with cancer or other life-limiting illnessgrief.png
