Who We Are

Healing and Cancer is a registered charity lead by an Oncologist and a Psychotherapist/Teacher. We empower people affected by cancer with a practical and integrated healing approach which combines the best care from the medical system with scientific and wisdom-based healing techniques.

Through self-compassion and our freely offered body-mind-spirit training you can help yourself heal and transform the diagnosis of cancer into a journey toward wholeness.
