Children from the age 5+, affected by cancer can access our specially adapted counselling and complementary therapy services to help them deal with the impact of cancer. 

Counselling

  • How it works?

    Counselling provides a safe place for children to express their worries and fears and learn ways to cope with their emotions.

    For parents with a cancer diagnosis, we can help support you explain to your child what cancer is and provide an opportunity for them to talk about their feelings and how to cope with what is happening.

    For children/young people under the age of 16, written consent from a parent/legal guardian is necessary for counselling.
