    Struggling to get back to ‘normal’ after treatment for breast cancer? Adapting to life after treatment can often be difficult and you might need some support in adjusting.

    Whether you are experiencing side effects of treatment, wondering how to adopt a healthier lifestyle or finding it hard to make sense of your breast cancer experience, our Moving Forward courses are here for you.

    Run in partnership with NHS hospitals, the course usually takes place over half a day for three or four weeks. Delivered by a range of expert speakers, it aims to provide information, support and professional guidance on how to cope with and adjust to life after breast cancer treatment. Topics covered may include: healthy eating, exercise, managing menopausal symptoms, lymphoedema, cancer fatigue, and intimacy and relationships.

    The course is open to people who have had a primary breast cancer diagnosis and have finished their hospital-based treatment. We ask that you are free to attend every week of the course.

    “I found the course very informative and reassuring. It helped to know how others deal with similar problems. Thank you to Breast Cancer Care and all the people who have helped us on the course.”

    The next Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Course for people with cancer is due to start on Monday April 23rd. It will last for 8 weeks and include a follow up session. The course is taught in Bangor by Trish Bartley and is free. MBCT for Cancer has been adapted from MBCT for Depression for people who have received treatment for cancer. There is a good evidence base for mindfulness and cancer which includes:

    • Reduced levels of anxiety and depression / depressive symptoms
    • Improved patterns of sleep
    • Improved well-being and emotion regulation

    All interested participants have a one to one meeting with Trish before the start of the course to ensure it is a good time for them to take the course. They are encouraged to consider attending after they have finished their major treatment. Less arduous treatment can be combined well with mindfulness.

    Email trish@trishbartley.co.uk or phone her (office hours) on 01758 721236

    With grateful thanks to the Alaw Endowment Fund who funded all these sessions
