Have you finished cancer treatment? Are you struggling to adapt to your new normal? Do you feel unsupported when tackling the emotional challenges of post-treatment life? Our Cancer Coach programme can help. The course takes participants through a series of weekly facilitated peer group sessions, run for a six-week period over the telephone or online video. The sessions provide strategies, techniques and exercises that aim to help participants on their recovery journey.

If your child begins to feel overwhelmed or panicked, use this grounding technique to help them slow down their breathing. They can do this by spreading their fingers, and taking slow deep breaths in and deep breathes out as they trace the outline of their hand with their pointer finger. They should repeat this until they have traced all their fingers.
