Our psychologists have created a series of videos that provide information about coping with cancer. With so many people impacted by the COVID lockdown we are making these available online.

Each topic covers a common challenge faced by people with cancer or by their supporters. The videos are recordings of webinars that were delivered live and are around one hour long.

Need to talk to someone?

If you need help or advice our team of psychologists, counsellors and nurses are available. If you are in lockdown you can call us 0800 226 237. Remote counselling sessions are available. Get in touch.
