Cancer counselling services

If you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with cancer you may find it helpful to talk with a professional counsellor.

Counselling can help you explore how to cope with emotions such as fear, anxiety and grief; and challenges such as communication issues, isolation and adjusting to changes in family dynamics.
