As Renie is a survivor of serious illness herself, as such, she is well aware of the issues you and your family face, and can show you various techniques that can help with many issues that may arise, from diagnosis through your treatment and beyond.
Our Work With Cancer Support

Cancer & Serious Illness Support
As everyone has different issues during this time, Renie will tailor the therapy specifically to your needs.
I use various techniques, combining psychotherapy with visual imagery, hypnotherapy, BWRT, NLP, TFT, and counselling therapies. I offer therapy designed specifically for each individual, giving them the strength and courage to best confront their condition and to complement the excellent care given by the medical profession.
The fact is that medical treatment for cancer is extremely well catered for. However, the psychological effects of a cancer diagnosis and subsequent mental trauma aren’t. This is an area that’s really never been embraced by modern medicine. I am here to offer cancer patients a professional and caring service that psychologically supports them through every stage of their illness. The approach that I employ is designed to fully complement established medical treatments. IT IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE THERAPY. A 3-pronged approach is utilised as part of the journey through cancer:
- medical intervention
- a positive mind set
- a healthy lifestyle
I aim to help cancer patients appreciate that they can actively participate in their treatment and wellbeing, going forward with the recommended medical procedures with confidence, knowing that it is for their benefit.

I wanted to write and thank you, for changing my life. I don’t think you will ever completely understand what you have done for me. I have suffered from a needle phobia all my life and simple blood test would reduce me to panic and tears. I came to see Renie and she talked me through the technique, but I wasn’t convinced that one session would be so life changing. After one session, I went …
As a doctor, I felt sceptical, even suspicious about the use of complimentary therapies. Unless there was a tablet I could throw at the situation, I wasn’t interested. I started seeing Renie at my local cancer support centre upon the suggestion of a Macmillan nurse. I was highly anxious and felt very bleak at the time. I started hypnotherapy with Renie and the effect was dramatic and immediate. The experience was positive and calming. I …
I came to see Renie at possibly one of the hardest times of my life. I had a lot of fear and stress over a recent diagnosis. Renie’s approach was both down to earth and practical. It helped me put everything into perspective and in turn made it all manageable. It felt like a weight had been lifted off me. So much so that some of my physical symptoms abated a little also. With a …
Absolutely brilliant! Renie made me feel so at ease from the very first session, listened, understood me and we agreed the next steps together. The therapy has been so helpful to me, it was made clear to me that I had to invest in my journey, which I did, but Renie was supportive every step of the way. The therapy has made a real difference to my every day life. Can’t speak highly enough of …
