The Centre is open to clients 5 days a week, Monday to Friday ( 9.30 til 4.30pm) with a late night on Tuesday (until 7.45pm) purposely for those who remain at work.
We offer support to anyone affected by cancer. That could mean you have a diagnosis or you are supporting someone with a diagnosis.
We believe that the impact of cancer is not just physical, and that recovery is assisted by attending to the needs of the whole person, mind, body, spirit and emotions.
We provide this support in a variety of ways which will work alongside conventional medical intervention. Our aim is to provide you with techniques that help you to relax. The more we can help you relax, the more you are able to support yourself on the road towards recovery.
We offer support partly through use of complementary therapies and partly by teaching techniques which can help you to relax.
Accessing therapies, learning Self-Help techniques, taking part in Groups and Talks can all help lesson some of the distressing symptoms which may occur as possible side effects of surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Side effects such as fatigue, nausea, sleeplessness, anxiety or panic attacks.
