We are providing a group space for carers to meet up for a chat and have a little bit of 'me' time.

Caring for someone with cancer is a deeply felt experience, when both you and the person you care for adapt to unwanted and changing circumstances.

It can often be a very emotional time with periods of confusion, challenge, exhauststion and loneliness.

Mindfulness

Group session

Drop in

A cancer diagnosis gives rise to so many physical and emotional challenges which may continue well beyond treatment for the person experiencing cancer, and their family and friends. Mindfulness is an approach to meeting these challenges.

Mindfulness practise invites you to bring your attention to the present moment with an intention of acceptance, paying attention to thoughts and feelings without judging them, without believing there is a right or wrong way to think in any given moment.

These practises have the intention of teaching people practical skills that can be incorporated into daily life, and which can help manage physical and psychological health problems. With practise, these skills can allow us to navigate ongoing challenges in life with calmness, clarity, curiosity, compassion and resilience.

This session is for people with cancer and their family and friends and led by our Cancer Support Specialists and Psychologist.
