Groups At The Fountain Centre

 

 

 

Carers Group (ONLINE)

This group meets on the last Wednesday of every month 5-6.30pm.  It is run by Jackie, who is a professional coach.  The aim is to support carers and give them a safe, non-judgemental, and confidential space to share their concerns and challenges around caring for someone with cancer.

EFT Group (ONLINE)

EFT is a very easy to learn tool for helping with stress, anxiety, worries and even physical symptoms like pain or side effects of anti-cancer treatment.

Benefits for cancer patients may include:

 

  •   Alleviating anxiety, anger, grief, fear, and hopelessness
  •   Coming to terms with the shock and trauma of the diagnosis
  •   Coping with the emotional and physical side effects of treatments (e.g., menopausal symptoms, sleep problems, pain)
  •   Learning to accept inevitable changes in your body, job, or relationships.
  •   Moving on after diagnosis or after treatment
