Our Peer Mentor support is provided by trained volunteers who have personal experience of a cancer diagnosis.
The role of the mentor is to support the client with the issues they may experience with their cancer diagnosis, e.g. helping to reduce anxiety and isolation, helping increase self-esteem and developing coping strategies.
The service is flexible so as a client’s needs change, the mentoring role can change too.
I wholeheartedly believe that my mentor dramatically improved my experience of dealing with my diagnosis.
My mentor was warm and open and immediately made me feel that I had made the right decision to use the service.
I would recommend this service because the only person who really understands is someone who has been through the same experience.
