Counselling service

Counselling is a chance to share your thoughts and feelings with an experienced therapist who will listen without judgement, whether you’re the person with cancer or are supporting someone else through their experience.

Cancer brings a lot of change, certainly in the short term, and finding ways of coming to terms with this and the range of different feelings can be a challenge.  Counselling can bring new understanding to your situation and your relationships, and make things much more manageable.

If you live in Bristol or South Gloucestershire, the cost of your counselling will be met by the NHS. For us to receive funding, you’ll need to call Bristol Wellbeing Therapies on 0117 982 3209 or South Gloucestershire Talking Therapies on 0117 378 4270. Following a short assessment, you will then be referred to us. For those living in other areas, we are able to offer a maximum of 12 sessions per person, either face-to-face or over the phone.

Feeling anxious is a normal part of life that we all experience from time to time.  However, a cancer diagnosis can understandably increase your levels of anxiety resulting in unpleasant physical symptoms and worrying thoughts.

It may be difficult to completely avoid anxiety, but there are many ways to manage and reduce it.

We are running a 6-week course to help you discover a range of techniques and ideas to help you manage the impact of anxiety in your life, in a supportive and calming atmosphere.

It is a closed group (not drop in) and you must be able to attend the 1st session and at least 4/5 of the remaining sessions.

Each week we will explore a different aspect of coping with anxiety, from dealing with negative thoughts to learning how to relax the body in an interactive session. By the end of the course you will have a toolkit of ideas to help you control the impact anxiety has on your life.

This course is suitable for anyone who is recovering from or living with cancer and those supporting someone with cancer. If you are interested in finding out more, call our bookings team on 0303 3000 118.

Being close to someone who’s been diagnosed with cancer can have a major impact on your life as well as theirs. It can be just as hard for you as it is for the person with the diagnosis. That’s why we offer counselling and support to the loved-ones of those living with cancer because you are just as important.
