about

A cancer diagnosis has more than physical effects; it can cause a torrent of unexpected, unfamiliar emotions felt by both the patient and those who care for them. The Cancer Companion is a compassionate, down-to-earth guide for those navigating these difficult and complex emotions. It takes psychological interventions shown to be appropriate and helpful in the management of cancer-related distress and provides an effective framework for patients and their loved ones to be able to apply these interventions in their own lives.

The book is written in short, concise chapters, organised in four sections:

  • diagnosis and treatment
  • ending treatment
  • managing advanced disease
  • strategies to manage the specific psychological components which may occur (including anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and management of relationships).

With over a decade of experience working with cancer patients and their families, author Toni Lindsay understands that accessible, constructive emotional guidance is vital. This simple structure, combined with the book’s comprehensive approach, aims to help people find a companionate commentary on their situation, and to engage with the outlined strategies. The Cancer Companion is a comforting, constructive, and jargon-free guide which will have a lasting and meaningful impact on the mental wellbeing of anyone whose life has been affected by cancer.
