Counselling Services & Group Therapy Workshops

It is normal to feel overwhelmed, and anxious after a diagnosis of cancer. Between 35-45% of all cancer patients will experience significant anxiety or depression at some point along their cancer journey.

Studies have found that family members and loved ones of prostate cancer patients may also experience significant distress as a result of diagnosis.

Having practical and emotional support during and after diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer is important. Counselling may support those, who otherwise suffer in silence.

If you feel overwhelmed by your or your partner’s prostate cancer diagnosis or treatment, the PCSC Program has a professional counselling service. We offer complimentary private, confidential clinic appointments for prostate cancer patients and their spouses/partners, either separately or together, with our clinical counsellor.

If you would like to book a clinical appointment please contact the program coordinator.

 

As a module of the Prostate Cancer Supportive Care (PCSC) Program, we offer one-on-one clinical appointments with our registered clinical counsellor for patients (pre- or post-treatment) and/or their partners with psychological issues related to their or their partner’s prostate cancer experience.
