COUNSELLING services will now be provided by telephone. We are currently contacting all individuals who were engaged in counselling to offer this service by phone. Please telephone us if you need counselling support at any time and we can arrange this for you.
WELFARE BENEFITS ADVICE will be provided by telephone support from Advice Space (previously C.A.B) . Contact us with your query and we will forward your details to Anne Marie who will contact you by phone. Please make sure you are able to fill out your forms if applicable when she phones or arrange to have someone present to complete them for you.
BACH FLOWER REMEDIES Dr Bach’s original flower remedies are a system of 38 flower remedies that can affect our emotions positively. They are totally safe for everyone and could help with anxiety and strain on our emotions during this difficult time. Many of you are already benefiting from this service and we want to try our best to ensure you can still get access to them. Please contact us by telephone and we can arrange for Mary Connolly to contact you by phone for a consultation to make you up a blend or to review your blend and issue you with a new one. We will post or deliver your blend to your door; we will confirm this at the time of your consultation.
POSITIVE WELLBEING VIDEOS We are currently putting some short wellbeing videos on our website www.cancerlifeline.info these will cover a range of topics such as good nutrition and building your immune system with Jane McClenaghan. Mary Connolly will also be presenting topics on Coping with Stress and Anxiety and ideas for Gentle Movement and Stretching. You can click on and watch these when it suits you best, helping you to keep well. (We appreciate not everyone will have access to the internet but we know some of you will, so enjoy and watch as many times as you like.)
