Dealing with cancer and recovery is often a long process of getting used to stress. Talking about your experiences and expressing your emotions is a healthy way to take care of yourself during treatment. In order to cope better in this difficult period, it is good to know what may favor and what may hinder the adaptation process.
Psychological therapy in oncology can be helpful when:
- the stress associated with disease diagnosis and treatment disrupts daily activities,
- when a sick person has problems with sleep,
- when strong negative emotions persist despite the end of treatment,
- when thoughts of resignation dominate.
The aim of therapeutic interactions is to improve the patient’s quality of life as an aid in activating various types of support resources. Various forms of therapy are used: psychoeducation, relaxation, elements of the Simonton method, supportive, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Who can benefit from the help of a psycho-oncologist?
Each patient of our Center, during diagnosis, treatment or after completion of therapy, may seek psycho-oncological help without referral. This also applies to patients’ families.
