This is confidential, professional, cancer-related telephonic counselling to cancer patients, caregivers and their families and parents or guardians of children living with cancer. Counselling is available in seven languages (English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu,siSwati, Sesotho and Setswana) and is free of charge.

One of our clients had this to say about his counselling experience:

“It was extremely helpful and I would have not been able to process my grief without it. I found my counsellor to be a very focused listener, engaging with subtlety and an open mind that I have rarely experienced. Very competent in understanding my case and allowing me to feel free to share my story and feel understood on my path. Kindness and compassion, but also guidance and straightforwardness that brought to my sessions a balance that created a space of trust where I could speak openly without ever feeling any judgment and always feeling supported! It was for me a deeply healing process and experience.”

We hope to help many more people in need into the future. Won’t you help support this valuable service by making an online donation here. Your support will ensure that our counsellors continue to receive in-service training to make them even more competent, and that we can continue to offer this service free of charge.
