Welcome to Cancer Counselling Professionals

Cancer Counselling Professionals is an association of Counsellors, Therapists, Psychologists and Social Workers who seek to ease the emotional burden that cancer brings to the patient, their families and carers.

About Us


A diagnosis of cancer is a devastating experience for most people. At times you may feel as if you are riding an emotional roller coaster. The best place to start is to seek support by talking to close family or friends. Sometimes talking of your distress to those close to you can be difficult and painful. It can help to talk to someone from outside of that circle who has been trained to listen and help you explore your feelings and assist you through your struggles.

At Cancer Counselling Professionals, we seek to assist you and those near you through providing access to resources and access to counsellors who understand cancer and the impact that has on the sufferer and those around them.



What we do



  • >  Provide access to accredited counsellors who have psycho-oncology training and experience.

  • >  Provide access to literature on cancer and its emotional implications for all those affected by it.

  • >  Provide links to other resources on the web including support groups.

  • >  A key purpose is also to help those with financial constraints to schemes that can assist access to our services.
