Penny Brohn UK
At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine. We see each person as a unique individual with their own set of hopes and needs - a whole person made up of mind, body, spirit and emotions.
We are the only charity in the UK to take an integrated whole person approach to cancer support using evidence-based therapies that work alongside standard medical treatment to achieve the best health and well being.
Our Bristol Whole Life Approach shows that there is more to health than simply what is going on in our bodies and that to be resilient and to function as well as we can, we need to pay attention to our mental, emotional and spiritual health as well as our physical health.
Exploring areas like diet, exercise, emotions, relationships and managing stress, our free courses, one-to-one therapies, and group sessions, help people to make small but sustainable changes whilst nurturing themselves at the deepest level.
We help people to manage the impact of cancer through:
Residential cancer retreats and day courses at our National Centre near Bristol
One-to-one complementary therapies and counselling services
Non residential living well services delivered in partnership across the UK
Well being services in partnership with GenesisCare where we are embedded in clinical centres as an integrated part of the treatment pathway.
This support includes:
Information, advice and practical support with healthy eating and physical activity
Self-help techniques including meditation, relaxation and imagery
Body related therapies such as massage, acupuncture and reflexology
Emotional support through counselling and group work
Creative therapies such as music and art therapy
We also work with those supporting someone with cancer and help them to build their own personal resources
