People with Cancer & Supporters

The diagnosis of cancer is a shocking event in anyone's life, and treatment itself can be intensive and challenging, and very draining of the body's already depleted reserves.

The Bristol Approach recognises that orthodox treatment alone may not be enough, and provides a unique combination of physical, emotional and spiritual support.

Developed by doctors, nurses, therapists and people with cancer, the Approach uses a range of complementary therapies and self-help techniques to help people to change the way they live with cancer, and to deal with the specific problems and challenges a cancer diagnosis brings.

These therapies include:

  • Nutritional Therapy
  • Vitamins and Minerals
  • Relaxation, Meditation & Visualisation
  • Counselling
  • Spiritual Healing
  • Massage & Shiatsu
  • Creative Therapies

    On 2 or 5 day residential courses people with cancer and their supporters can learn to use the above therapies and self-help techniques.

    To discuss which course is best going to suit you, please contact our national telephone helpline on 0845 123 23 10, ring our bookings department on 0117 980 9502 or email us.

    "I was cared for from the moment I arrived till the moment I left - I was taught ways of helping myself by people who understood what I was going through. At the end of the Bristol Approach course I felt more confident about moving forward in my life. It made me realise that I didn't have to be a victim to cancer"
