Mindfulness for Cancer 

Mindfulness in later life
Nightingale Cancer Support Centre

Being diagnosed with cancer can be incredibly traumatic. It not only affects the cancer sufferer but also their family and friends.  We have been running Mindfulness courses for people living with Cancer for several years and proud of the amazing feedback we have received. Knowing that we are helping those in real need makes our job worthwhile. 

Our Clients

We are fully trained to deliver the only  UK Mindfulness course specifically designed for people living with Cancer. The Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Cancer (MBCT-CA) course was designed by Trish Bartley at the University of Bangor and has been successfully applied in the Cancer field for many years.

It is a highly respected program that takes the Cancer patient through their journey, helping them come to terms with their diagnosis and gives them tools to live better with Cancer.

There are now an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK, rising to 4 million by 2030 - MacMillan Cancer Support
The course has made me more accepting of what has happened to me and how cancer has changed my life. I am much more positive about life now
— Course Participant

This course is best suited  to Cancer patients because it deals directly with the experience, we use specific tools that can be applied by anyone living with Cancer, regardless of physical health. And the course is always delivered by an experienced Mindfulness for Cancer teacher. 

 Through the course we look at how to cope with the emotions, the feelings of vulnerability and the fear of recurrence. 

Cost Effective courses

As most of our clients are not for profit organisations, our prices are kept low to make the courses accessible. Our overall mission is to be there for those that need us, therefore we charge by the hour, for a one off workshop or for the course in its entirety.  Typically an 8 week course will cost the organisation around £480 for our services. Usually we host the course as the organisations premises cutting down on costs.
