Free support for therapists supporting clients affected by cancer
This is our second networking online meeting, and all are welcome to join. Our topic will be the use of different therapy modalities when working with people affected by cancer.
What can we learn from each other?
Life-changing chronic illnesses and cancer are not niche but are increasingly mainstream. Even if you do not specialise in the field, your client can become ill, and that can change everything - including the support you offer.
Who am I?
I am Karin Sieger, an integrative psychotherapist based in Richmond, West London. I have been personally affected by cancer as a relative, friend, and patient. I specialise in supporting people affected by life-changing and life-shortening illness (especially cancer), transitions, grief, anxiety, loss of identity, and purpose. I host the podcast 'Cancer and You' and I am the cancer counsellor with LiveBetterWith.com.
Why free support for therapists?
Physical illnesses affect our mental health, and some like to argue vice-versa. I am passionate about the valuable contribution counselling and therapy can offer to people affected by physical illnesses. Sadly this topic does not seem to get much attention in training courses and depending on where you practice, resource shortages mean that adequate public funding is non-existent.
This is why I have decided to offer free support for therapists who work with clients affected by life-changing, chronic illnesses, cancer and such, or who want to work in this field. You are welcome to make a PayPal donation towards my time.
How does it work?
These are demand-based free video calls via Zoom, which I will schedule once I have received sufficient interest. If you are interested, then drop me a line (KarinSieger@KarinSieger.com) and I will keep you posted. If you have a Hotmail or Yahoo email address, then please also check your spam folder for correspondence.
Next free Zoom video call: Tuesday 17th February 2020, 3-4:30 pm, UK time.
Contact me if you are interested on KarinSieger@KarinSieger.com and I will email you the call link.
Please note: These free support calls are not an alternative to supervision.
