How we can help you

ACTivate Your Life - Affected By Cancer

AYL Page Photo

Living well, with and beyond cancer.

We all have emotional issues. But dealing with everyday life when you've been affected by cancer can be even more difficult. We know that a cancer diagnosis not only affects someone physically, but emotionally too. 

You may find yourself struggling to cope which can cause unwelcome emotional issues such as:

  • worry
  • anger
  • stress
  • low-self confidence
  • panic
  • anxiety
  • depression


Regrets, fears, and sadness can overwhelm us and can take over our thoughts and feelings, causing us to stop living in the present and instead focusing on what is going on around us that we cannot change.

But you can take control

Our four-week ACTivate Your Life - Affected by Cancer course will take you through the steps to take control of your mind. The course, designed by Professor Neil Frude, will take you through the steps on how to control your mind by understanding mindfulness and unlocking your core values to allow you to live well with and beyond cancer.

The course is free and is designed for anyone affected by cancer so bring a friend or family member for support; they might learn something too! Come along, listen and learn skills to help you understand how to respond to negative thoughts and feelings, how to practice mindfulness and how to take more power over you actions.
