The Cancer Survivor's Companion is the first book in the UK to really look in depth at cancer survivorship and its emotional fallout. Coping with life after cancer can be tough. The idea that the end of successful treatment brings relief, peace and celebration just isn't true for countless survivors.
Dr Frances Goodhart and Lucy Atkins help you to deal with the emotional impact of cancer, whether it's days, months or years since your treatment ended. The Cancer Survivor's Companion is packed with simple ways to tackle worry and anxiety, depression and low mood, anger, self-esteem and body image, relationships and sex, fatigue, sleep and relaxation. If you are a cancer survivor, this book is your companion. It is also invaluable if you are supporting a loved one, friend or colleague after cancer.
