Counselling Services

I am passionate about supporting cancer survivors and their families throughout the challenges of their cancer journey - whether it be dealing with the shock of diagnosis, coping with the side-effects of treatment, adjusting to the new version of their life beyond active treatment, or in some cases coming to terms with a diagnosis of advanced cancer with all that this entails.

The links below describe some of the more common struggles experienced and the ways counselling might help.

...Everyone copes in different ways as our primitive “flight or fight” response kicks into gear. Some may feel overwhelmed while others...

Many people are surprised to find that once they have completed their active treatment life doesn’t always return to the way it was before their diagnosis.

When a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, partners and other family members often suffer as much or even greater distress than the person with the cancer...

Your diagnosis is often followed by a whirlwind of appointments, information overload, decisions to be made, surgery...

When you are first told you have advanced cancer... it is likely that you will experience a range of emotions including: shock, fear, anger... ...you do not have to go through it alone.
