Anxiety/Depression In Context Of Cancer

(Pre, During And Post Chemotherapy)

Following a patient being diagnosed with cancer, the mind takes over and emotions can be overwhelming. Such feeling can trigger anxiety and/depression. This may be at diagnosis, or during or after treatment. This is normal and for most people these feelings of sadness go away. Such overwhelming feeling may be related to the cancer, or it may happen for other reasons.

For some people, a low mood may continue or get worse. This may mean they have depression and need help or treatment to be able to cope. Depression is common and can be caused by different things.

It is important to remember that anxiety and/ depression are common and that the Therapist is here to offer therapeutic help.
