Counselling provides the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings, to identify worries and concerns, to create self-awareness and develop coping mechanisms to help bring about change.

Counselling is available to adults, young people and children aged 5 plus during any stage of the cancer journey - from diagnosis and treatment right through to recovery or bereavement. We also offer counselling toanyone who is undergoing genetic cancer testing.

Counselling can also use additional techniques during sessions if suitable and in agreement with you. These include:

Sand Play

Through the creation of a three dimensional picture in sand, a client works to gain greater insight into what is going on for them in relationship to self and others, to understand their behaviours and relationship dynamics, to identify where change would be beneficial and to explore how such change may be brought about.

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

These techniques use the stimulation of acupressure points to address negative emotions, physical pain, repetitive thoughts etc.

Creative Interventions

These include art/painting, music, poetry, letter writing and memory boxes.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Can be effective in dealing with phobias, depression, replacing negative behaviours and habits with positive ones helping you to cope better.

Time Line Therapy (TLT)

Works to release the effects of past negative experiences such as anger, depression, sadness, anxiety and chronic fear allowing a client to gain emotional control over their life and work towards attainable goals.
