I have a long term vision for the intersection between cancer and mental health. This is an intersection that is far from as easy to navigate or as supportive as it can be. After my family’s self lived experience of cancer, I have an acute awareness of the emotional isolation a cancer journey can bring. I also know the benefits of counselling and therapy for emotional wellbeing and quality of life.
“Support and be an advocate for a cancer care model that includes emotional wellbeing as an integral part of the care plan.
A cancer care model where everyone – patients, caregivers, and family – have quality options for emotional support clearly available and known to them.”
Starting counselling can be difficult. Sharing thoughts and emotions can make you feel vulnerable. We explore your experiences at a pace that is comfortable to you.
Using this holistic approach of mind, brain and body, we “teach” the brain to react differently. This can significantly strengthen your sense of self and open you up to feeling increasingly at peace with yourself and with life.
