Being diagnosed with cancer can have a huge impact on the patient and his/her family. We have full- and part-time counsellors/social workers to support you and your family during this challenging time. We believe that your psychological and emotional disposition will be a determining factor during the treatment period. Therefore the latest techniques and methods are used to kick start the immune system.
Consultations and group sessions are free of charge. Consultations are by appointment only. To attend a group, please book with the counsellor (contacts can be found below).
