Meet David, a counsellor at CancerCare Slynedales!

"I love working at CancerCare because it gives me the chance to support others who are going through a really difficult time. I struggled as a teenager and found that talking to others was such a release for me as I felt that someone understood and cared about what I was going through. I am proud of the fact that I can now offer that to others who are finding life difficult coping with a diagnosis, a bereavement or the illness of a friend or family member so that they too can feel understood and listened to.  CancerCare offers people a friendly face and a lifeline as soon as they walk through the door and I feel privileged to be part of the team."

David explains how counselling could help you following a diagnosis or bereavement

  • Counselling allows you to be yourself, your true self
  • Sessions give you space to breathe and to have a release
  • It allows you to know yourself better
  • And can give you a new perspective on life, it can help you see yourself and others in a new light
  • Talking therapy prepares you for future struggles
  • Counselling releases pressure you may feel
