Cancer has usually touched one of us at some point in our lives, whether you have been diagnosed or whether you have a family member or friend that has been diagnosed with cancer. A cancer diagnosis can be a painful, difficult experience mixed with shock, grief and fear.
Not only do you have to deal with the diagnosis but the illness can bring a list of exhausting treatments as well as concerns for what the future might bring.
Anxiety, stress and anger are just some of the emotions that you might experience with the idea of living with a threatening illness. You may feel that you don’t want to burden your family and/or friends with your problems and fears and therefore may feel isolated.
If you are a loved one of someone who has been diagnosed then it can feel hard being strong for the person and you might feel fearful of the impact of the diagnosis.
How can I help
Kruti St Helen cannot cure the illness but can help you accept your diagnosis and can help you to gain a better coping strategy in managing your feelings towards cancer. By having someone to talk to in a safe, confidential place, it can support you, your family and your friends during this difficult time.
I offer a free 30 minute, no obligation session where you can come and meet me, ask me questions or use it as a short counselling session to get a feel for what to commit to. This session will give you the opportunity to discover if you feel comfortable working with me and are able to build a therapeutic relationship with me which is important for counselling to take place. If after the 30 minutes, you are happy and would like to continue the counselling sessions, I will book you in for an assessment session where we will set out a therapeutic contract.
