Living your best life possible with the situation you've been given
“Being a survivor doesn't mean being strong - it's telling people when you need a meal or a ride, company, whatever. It's paying attention to heart wisdom, feelings, not living a role, but having a unique, authentic life, having something to contribute, finding time to love and laugh. All these things are qualities of survivors. “ Bernie Siegel
Receiving a cancer diagnosis changes everything. How we let that diagnosis impact us, is our choice.
Life in the modern world can be hectic and fast, we can sometimes feel that we have no time to stop and think for ourselves, or to reconsider where our lives are going. Too often I hear people saying they were just swept in a direction without being able to take the time to think about it.
A cancer diagnosis forces us to stop. To reassess, to re evaluate what is really important in our lives.
Finding peace, a safe place to do this is paramount when everything around of you feels out of control.
My cancer care programme can help you regain control of your thoughts and emotions whilst giving you a safe space to express how you truly feel, and make the decisions that are right for you.
I use a combination of techniques and offer 10 years of experience of working in cancer care. Facilitating support groups, one to one counselling, hypnotherapy and coaching - alongside the NHS in a hospital setting and also privately working with clients who chose a complimentary way to work with their illness.
Working together we can find a way to help you have acceptance and over come the shock of a diagnosis, whilst looking at how you can live your best life possible with cancer and your chosen treatment plan.
A diagnosis can make you feel that you have no future, and a rush of emotions can overtake you. You may feel trapped by your illness, scared of the unknown and the uncertainty that has been given to you. You may experience guilt, regrets of things you didn't say or do sooner , fear of pain, fear of death and your head may be full of circling thoughts.
It can be hard to find the zest and passion for the life you so want to live. Its important to allow yourself to see the future you can have. To make rewarding plans, and set short and longterm goals. Learn to manage your energy levels and prioritise the things that are important to you. Together we can start your survivors journey, and find a new sense of peace and acceptance where-ever that may lead.
