Thanks to funding secured from the National Lottery Community Fund, we have launched our Living with Uncertainty programme group sessions.
The aim of this patient programme is to assist people living with cancer to develop skills to live a full and meaningful life alongside their condition using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
This programme is for those experiencing a level of distress in relation to the uncertainty associated with their cancer diagnosis that impacts their ability to live life in a way that is meaningful and satisfying to them. An example of uncertainty caused by cancer diagnosis may include (but not limited to);
The Living with Uncertainty group programme consists of 6 group sessions split across 6 consecutive weeks. Groups are delivered by a psychologist and a facilitator. Each session lasts for 2 hours and consist of a maximum of 10 participants. During these sessions, participants learn skills to manage fear and anxiety so that they can get back to living the life that they want for themselves. Due to current pandemic restrictions, these groups are offered virtually via Zoom currently and have also been offered face to face prior to this.
An Acceptance Commitment Therapy approach is used to help participants live alongside difficult thoughts and feelings associated with their cancer diagnosis and the uncertainty this has caused for them. The 6-week programme explores participant values and goals while engaging with a range of techniques to help move forward in a way that makes life meaningful for each individual.
