Building Resilience Programme for People with Cancer

In March 2017 we will be running a 4-week course: Building Resilience Programme for People with Cancer facilitaed by Josephine O'Gorman at Paul’s Cancer Support Centre.  This will integrate a range of effective approaches including the Somatic Experiencing® method, providing participants with resources to build their resilience, well-being and confidence to cope with their stress, challenges and fears. 

Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a pioneering body-mind method developed by Dr Peter Levine for resolving trauma symptoms and increasing resilience. It provides a new way in understanding the nervous system. It recognises that the effects of trauma are primarily experienced in our nervous systems (how we react) and how any unresolved trauma can create dysregulation within the nervous system. 

Book by phoning the Support Team on 020 7924 3924, Monday to Friday between 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm. There will be an opportunity to discuss the course with Josephine via telephone to ensure that the course meets your needs. Click here for more details.

Life coaching

Life coaching gives you an opportunity to seek help with any area of your life where you are feeling stuck or uncertain and wish to move on. It helps you move on from where you are to where you want to be through clearing obstacles and outdated beliefs, and encouraging action.

Common issues worked on include achievement of a specific goal, improving relationships, dealing with life changes, health and fitness and overcoming stress and phobias.

This is a 6 week series of weekly hour-long sessions.
