Cancer Care and Support, Employee Assistance

Cancer care and support is essential after receiving a diagnosis. Someone who has just received a devastating diagnosis is bound to experience strong emotions and they may or may not be open to talking to friends or family. This can affect interpersonal relationships, as everyone around might feel afraid, directionless, numb and shocked.  A person who has been diagnosed with cancer can find inner strength to face the road ahead by speaking to a counsellor who has experience with cancer.

People with cancer often try to be strong for their loved ones, despite the fear they themselves face. At the same time, relatives tend to be afraid of expressing their own thoughts and feelings. The load can be minimized for both the cancer patient and his or her family by speaking to a psychologist.

The general consensus is that a positive attitude is essential for fighting cancer, and while that is a great tool, it can do more harm than good. It implies that people who lose the battle against cancer were negative. Unfortunately, the positive attitude analogy leaves no room for exploring anxiety and fear, or the grief commonly associated with a diagnosis.

A psychologist or counsellor who is knowledgeable about cancer care and support is the partner of choice for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as for their friends and family. The therapist will help people to understand the impacts of a cancer diagnosis and the treatments. A psychologist will ensure that you have all the emotional tools required to handle the challenges on the road to recovery.

Let's face it, everyone goes through difficulties, experiences distress, and troubles. Crisis doesn't wait until we are ready to deal with it, but rather occur when we're least prepared. Challenges are an inevitable part of our everyday life. Just because your employees are smiling, doesn't mean that they don't experience these difficulties and worries.

It is in the best interest of the employer to provide employee assistance services to help them deal with whatever they are going through. Personal or professional issues can harm the best of workers, affecting their psyches and causing them a range of emotional and physical problems.
