We provide a range of support options for your patients, to help them manage the physical and emotional impacts of cancer. Everything we do is evidence based and draws on the latest thinking on cancer survivorship and self-care activation.

We also offer specific support for people going through chemotherapy and radiotherapy through our Treatment Support Clinic in association with the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre.

We receive NHS funding for patients referred through Bristol Wellbeing Therapies on 0117 982 3209 or South Gloucestershire Talking Therapies on 0117 378 4270. This applies for Counselling and Applied Relaxation sessions at our National Centre. For patients living in other areas, we are able to offer up to 12 sessions, either face-to-face or on the phone.

Your patients can also self-refer by calling 0303 3000 118 and speaking to a member of our Helpline. If you would like information leaflets for your practice, surgery or waiting room, you can find them online here or call 01275 370 122 to request printed copies.

We work in partnership with a range of voluntary sector and healthcare providers to deliver our Living Well services nationwide.

To find out more, call Marian Naidoo, Services Director on 01275 370 164.

We offer training in the Bristol Whole Life Approach to healthcare professionals and complementary therapists who are interested in a whole person approach to healthcare through the Penny Brohn Academy.

The training offers the opportunity to learn more about the different aspects of the Bristol Whole Life Approach. We support professionals working with people with cancer to understand how to help people to manage their illness. This includes the social, psychological and spiritual aspects, the symptoms and side-effects of treatment, and how people with cancer benefit from increased wellbeing in the presence of illness.
