You may not understand the prognosis 

You maybe newly diagnosed with cancer or coming through treatment or about to re-start your life after discharged from treatment. 

You maybe worried about how to "let go" of your cancer diagnosis or how to cope with the changes that being a patient is bringing to you and your family.

Or you maybe a partner of someone who has just been diagnosed and want some coaching support, so that you can offer your partner the support and understanding they need.

As a fully qualified cancer nurse and coach, I believe I can give you that extra bit of support and advice when you need it.
