Counselling & Complementary Therapy

The Wessex Cancer Trust knows that talking helps. Cancer is one of the hardest fights that a person will ever face but you don’t have to go through it alone.

It is not uncommon to find it hard to talk to ones family about cancer, or to talk about it at all. But a chat with a professional could help you find a way to express yourself. Sometimes, talking to someone outside your family and group of friends can really help.

We provides free and confidential counselling and complementary therapies for cancer patients and their families. Talking helps – it really does, so please give us a call, or drop in to see us if you need any help or advice. We are here to help you.
