Counselling

DCF will also work in partnership with other specialist agencies in offering 1 to 1 sessions for individuals who feel they will benefit more from smaller group sessions. Possible outcomes could include:

  • More hopeful about the future
  • Reduced depression
  • Reduced anxiety
  • More positive mental well-being

Creative Workshops

DCF team will run creative workshops including Art and Creative Writing offering young people an opportunity for self-expression and a setting in which to talk and bond with other young people affected by Cancer who share similar experiences.

You don’t need to be able to draw or write, a creative workshop is a form of emotional support that can be helpful to young people who are struggling with difficult and challenging situations.
