A diagnosis of cancer can be a devastating experience for both the person diagnosed and the people close to them.
Many people can get support by talking to close family or friends. However, it can sometimes help to talk to someone outside of that circle who has been trained to listen & help you explore your feelings.
Talking to a counselor or psychologist can ease the sense of isolation you may feel and help you find ways to face the challenges ahead...
