Cancer Information Support and Counselling Service
The Kent and Canterbury Hospital offers both counselling and complementary therapies to patients/carers currently or recently receiving cancer treatment and extends to support at the end of life for all disease groups. Referral to the team can be made by professionals involved in the patient's care. Talking to a trained counsellor who is not personally involved can give people the space needed to untangle thoughts, feelings and ideas, and patients can turn to them at any stage; after diagnosis, during treatment, or even after treatment has finished. The counselling service built on experience, understanding and trust, has for many people been an important first step in regaining control of their lives. Referral to the team can be made by professionals involved in the patient's care.
(As at 11/6/12 four free treatments are offered, although this is likely to change as funding may not be available). Contact: Elizabeth Taylor: 01227 864045, Mon, Tues and Thur, 9am-5pm There are social events and newsletters through the Cancer Care Club.
