Online support groups

We are now taking bookings for online support groups starting  in September – you may not have considered an online support groups before – or even thought it was possible.. it may sound strange but you very soon feel at ease with the other people in the “room” and  that you are with them even though you cant see each other...

One member recently described an online support group as “like having friends  going through the same as me in my kitchen with me – but I didn’t need to worry what I looked like or how messy the house was”  

All our online support groups  are facilitated by  a cancer specialist nurse like myself or a psychologist.   You can find out more about the online support groups we run and how they work  on our groups page.   You will also find information on how to sign up for each group and then Sue or I will contact you to let you know the date of the next available session.

We are also booking for individual nutrition  sessions with caroline our nutritional therapist. theses sessions run on Wednesday mornings  again you need to sign up in advance  More about these sessions is also available on the groups page under booked nutrition sessions

If you are already a member of  any of the  online support groups please can you let me know if you are unable to rejoin a group in September  or attend a  booked session so we are able to offer the place to another member

 Many thanks

Robyn
