Relaxation & Mindfulness

Finding out that you or a loved one has a cancer diagnosis can be a distressing experience, often accompanied by a range of different emotions and responses. Relaxation, anxiety management and mindfulness techniques can help you in dealing with the situation. 

The therapy of relaxation seeks to promote peace and balance. Relaxation techniques taught by our experienced therapists include relaxing groups of muscles, breathing exercises and the imagining of relaxing scenes. These methods help ease stress and tension throughout the body and can also help sleep patterns.

Almost everyone can use relaxation techniques, and our counsellors will help teach and provide you with the tools to explore which relaxation techniques work best for you- allowing you to achieve a more at ease state of mind and reduced anxiety.
