Cancer coaching

What is cancer coaching?

The purpose of cancer coaching is to respond to your physical, informational, emotional and spiritual needs to help you and your family meet the challenges of cancer, reach your health and well-being goals, and improve your quality of life. Our cancer coaches are regulated health professionals. They work with you to target what is important to you, and together you develop a plan that is tailored to your needs, values and goals.

Cancer coaching can help you:

  • Develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to better understand your cancer;

  • Improve your general health and well-being;

  • Manage common side effects and reduce stress;

  • Get in touch with people who are going through similar things;

  • Address your needs as caregivers;

  • Feel more in control

How do I participate in cancer coaching?

If you have received a cancer diagnosis or if someone close to you has cancer, you can register for cancer coaching. It is offered without referral from a physician, and everyone is entitled to a maximum of five hours of cancer coaching free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners.
