Everyone’s experience is unique.

Whether you have come to terms with your diagnosis quickly or you’re frustrated that life is not the same, it’s ok to feel way you do.

Our support team are all trained mental health first aiders. We’re here to listen, reassure and help you through the emotional toll that a cancer journey can have on your wellbeing. Some of us have roots in the NHS, some come from private medical providers. Collectively we understand how to make the healthcare system work in your best interest.

“Life is not always the same after cancer. While many of my clients expect things to go back to the way they were, some still feel unwell and struggle to resume their old routines. I work alongside my clients to help them and their families prepare for the next steps of their journey.”

“I wasn’t sure if I was going to phone Reframe. I thought it might be one more thing of many I had to do, but I’m so glad I did.”
