You may be that person whose life has just been turned upside down with a fearful diagnosis, a multitude of tests, and the long stressful wait for results and/or the new routine of challenging treatments. Furthurmore, co-existing with anxiety and the fear of death often accompany a diagnosis. Yet, you may now have completed treatment and feel adrift with no map or compass to guide you beyond the hospital. All most of us want, is for life to get back to normal. Whatever that is.
I work primarily, but not exclusively, with people facing cancer, as well as caregivers – family and friends. I hope you will find resources here for navigating your non-medical needs while living with any illness, not only cancer. This practical, action-oriented and meaningful approach is based on Japanese Psychology and the work of Dr. Jinroh Itami known as Meaningful Life Therapy that consequently made a significant difference to me, during my cancer treatment, and to many others I have worked with.
