Cancer can be an overwhelming diagnosis, but you don’t have to go it alone. A cancer coach can help you to deal with challenges more effectively, reduce stress, and provide focus, so that you can experience an enhanced quality of life again. Life coaching can provide you with additional support and the tools you need to help you maintain control of your life throughout diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
Many cancer patients and survivors experience:
- Fears about the future
- Fluctuating energy levels
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Challenges relating to everyday life
- Self-image issues
- Struggles with interpersonal relationships
- Difficulty defining the new normal
A cancer diagnosis can affect family members as well as the patient. Caring for someone who is ill, taking on additional responsibilities, and worrying about the future can be tiring. If you have a loved one with cancer, life coaching can help you feel better prepared to manage daily demands and to control your response to stressors.
Cancer coaching can support you to identify what is working in your life and what isn’t. The coaching process can help you to create your own personal strategies to thrive throughout your journey.
Life coaching can assist you with identifying and managing your stress triggers, and strengthening your mindfulness, gratitude and self-care practices.
