Counselling & Wellbeing

 

Brain cancer is a journey that no one should face alone. We are dedicated to making sure that that doesn’t happen.

We understand that upon diagnosis there are many unknowns and uncertainties. Living with uncertainty can trigger feelings of helplessness, anxiety and depression. By providing access to funded counselling and face to face support groups we can help build a strong community to prevent patients and families feeling isolated and dis-empowered.
