Cancer Counseling

Providing counseling support for cancer patients is very important. In addition to support, there is a massive amount of scientific research that has shown that psychosocial factors contribute to the development of cancer, the treatment of cancer, and the resolution of cancer. Unfortunately, most physicians do not tell their patients about this research. There is a unique psychological profile of most cancer patients that requires a specific counseling focus. This can be done in conjunction with the medical treatment of your choice. Cancer counseling specialists can facilitate the following:

* Relief of the stress of cancer diagnosis

* Facilitate disclosure of buried related stress

* Assist in resolving fears of death and loss of those who might be left behind

* Neutralize some of the emotional and physical side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation

* Increase awareness and improvement of mind-body relationships
