Sue Young Cancer Support aims to support anyone affected by cancer. It’s not only physical symptoms that affect patients but also emotional turmoil and anxiety over practical issues that can arise following a cancer diagnosis. Counselling is one of the services that may benefit not only you but your family and carer(s) once the cancer diagnosis has been made.
We have an “open door” policy, in order to make access to our services as trouble free as possible. Many different people come to us for counselling and we try to cater for as many people as possible, with focus on equality and diversity in all cases. We are constantly striving to recruit new volunteer who would be able to assist with service users with differing needs and languages.
Counselling is about enabling people to explore and express their feelings and issues currently affecting them and takes place on a 1:1 basis with a trained counsellor, as it is sometimes difficult to talk to family and friends. Our counsellors offer a confidential, non-judgemental service, so you can talk openly and freely.
Sometimes counselling focusses on immediate concerns and issues or it may feature other matters that your present circumstances invoke. Sessions are flexible and tailored to your needs.
