Psychological Support for Cancer
We know that being diagnosed with cancer changes your life in many ways. The stress and anxiety that accompanies the diagnosis and treatment of cancer can be difficult to manage and many people find that they need different kinds of support to navigate the journey that they have found themselves on.
We are here to help you regardless of where you are in treatment. We assist individuals and families from diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond. While you may not be able to change your diagnosis, we can work with you to help you better understand and reduce the emotional impact of cancer. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will find new ways to help you achieve a greater sense of wellness as you find a "new normal". Our focus is on helping you improve and maintain the quality of your life.
