The Cancer Wellbeing Centre (CWC) provides you and your loved ones with warm and expert psychological care to help you cope with the challenges of cancer and create a balanced life. Our expert cancer psychologists are specially trained in delivering psychological interventions to people affected by cancer – including family and loved ones. We provide psychology in Brisbane's western suburbs via our Indooroopilly clinic, and can also provide mobile and outreach services throughout South-East Queensland.
A diagnosis of cancer can come as a real shock — and in the midst of adjusting to this news you are often faced with having to make difficult treatment and lifestyle decisions. Treatment effects can pose additional life challenges, impacting your work, relationships and family life. After finalising medical treatment you may find yourself feeling isolated, just as you are trying to work out how to move forward with your life. Our team of expert cancer psychologists will work with you to provide respect, support and compassionate care when you need it most.
Feelings of trauma, lingering distress, depression and anxiety can persist throughout a person's cancer journey and beyond. Family and loved ones can also feel emotional effects that impact their quality of life. Psychological interventions have been shown to help people feel less distressed and experience greater emotional wellbeing. We offer a range of evidence-based and individually tailored services.
