Counselling for Cancer Patients and Loved Ones


While professional counselling can be beneficial to any person’s overall well-being, it can be especially useful when dealing with cancer. Strengthening your ability to handle stressful situations can make all the difference, and allow you to experience a higher quality of life during the process.

If you’ve received a cancer diagnosis and are experiencing any of the symptoms described here, seeking counselling can help. Likewise, family and friends of cancer patients might also be struggling to cope. And the sooner you’re proactive about getting support, the sooner you can reap the benefits. Learning a few key tools for healthy coping strategies can make difficult times more manageable, as well as strengthen your relationships with loved ones.

The multitude of new challenges that cancer patients and their families face can throw even the healthiest among us for quite a loop. Seeking emotional support as soon as possible will help give you the necessary tools for navigating this experience both in the short and long term. In addition to free resources online and in-person support groups, connecting with a professional counsellor on a one-to-one basis is often the fastest way to developing the skills you need.
