Bouncing Back After Cancer

Course Description:

This unique course is for women who, like me, have come through a cancer journey.

Even for those of us who have been lucky enough to have had an early stage diagnosis it will still have been a challenging stressful time. It’s very apt that a cancer experience is referred to as ‘an emotional rollercoaster’ because that’s exactly what it is.

Among the physical turmoil we may experience from surgery and treatment there can also be a loss of our self confidence with ongoing feelings of anxiety and worry.

The thing about our feelings is that we simply cannot ‘UNFEEL’ them no more than we can unsee something.

Unresolved emotional upset, specifically when it’s out of our control, can impact our quality of life and both our mental and physical health, but there’s much we can learn to become more aware and to manage it positively.

In my personal experience I found it difficult to just move on. I could not just bounce back into my life after my cancer as if nothing had happened. I Could not go back and was not  quite sure how to go forward. .I am very lucky and I was (and still am) so grateful to have the chance of a healthy happy life ahead. However as a therapist with a special interest in healing,  I am acutely aware of the importance of supporting women to live a life we love after cancer.

This is not a course about cancer. This is for us women who want to move on with our best foot forward into a happy peaceful life. It’s about reconciliation, empowerment, inspiration, fulfillment, purpose and how to find it.

This course is all about you – after cancer ❤️
