A great number of patients experience different feelings after cancer treatment, such as worrying about the cancer coming back, feeling lonely, angry, and afraid of changes that have taken place. These feelings are normal. There are community counselling services available to patients across the region. The list below is for your information. We do not endorse any outside services, but try to include a variety of support services.
