Coping with cancer can be difficult. People living with cancer may experience anxiety, fear, anger, sadness and depression. These feelings can occur at any time during their cancer journey – even months or years later.
It can be very useful to speak to someone who is not personally involved; you can tell them things that you may otherwise wish to keep private. A counsellor will be able to provide emotional support by allowing you express your feelings and fears. He or she won’t tell you what to do, but will help you see things differently and find your way through a difficult time.
Talking to someone confidentially to discuss a difficulty in your life can be a real help as you go through your cancer journey. The counselling service is available for all people who have a cancer diagnosis, their family members and significant others (a partner or friend).
