Having cancer in your life can really mess things up. Canteen understands that cancer affects everything, from how you feel and think to your relationships and stuff like education, work and finances.
Cancer affects everyone differently, which is why we can work with you individually to identify your needs and goals and then make sure you get the support you need to deal with your cancer journey.
We can help you work out what type of support you’d like and need, then work with you to make it happen. If you’d like to speak to one of our staff (online or face-to-face), call us on 1800 835 932.
Canteen Counselling Services
Talking about everything you’re going through might seem hard, but it can make a huge difference. Canteen counsellors are specially trained to understand the challenges cancer brings and you can talk to them about thoughts or feelings that you might not want to tell other people in your life. They’ll also help you develop strategies to deal with the impact cancer is having on your life – and just listen.
Canteen Counselling Services are confidential and completely free.
