Cancer can potentially be a life limiting disease. It is common and understandable for people diagnosed with cancer to feel anxious about the possibility of the cancer coming back. In this session we will look at:

  • factors which can heighten this fear
  • strategies to lessen it so it does not become overwhelming
  • where you can find support to better manage it.

Ella completed her Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Melbourne, receiving the Dean’s Award and Elgin Prize for achievement in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences.
