A cancer diagnosis can be very upsetting, not only for cancer patients  themselves, but also for their families.  A decision to go for counselling can be somewhat daunting. GCS offers guidance, encouragement
and support to cancer patients and their families, with over 25 years of community  cancer care and support.

Can we help you – please get in touch?

Why go?

Counselling can give you a safe place, where you can explore and express your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with professional support and without judgement. Counselling may help you see things differently and enable you to find a way through a difficult patch. All our registered Counsellors are fully and professionally trained. All counselling is given on a totally confidential basis.

Why talk to a Counsellor?

Counselling can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. It can actually be easier to talk to someone you do not know because:

→ They are not involved in your life
→ They can see your life objectively
→ They will let you talk about anything
→ They will let you talk about anything
