“I work with patients and their families to support them to manage the impact that a cancer diagnosis, and treatment, can have on their lives.  I take a collaborative and whole person approach to my work with clients, taking into account all the different aspects that may be contributing to a person’s situation. Sessions are judgement free and confidential so that you can feel safe to explore your concerns.”
