Community Support

Counselling

The following sections describe the type of help that may benefit cancer patients as well as survivors, including counselling and support groups. It also contains a list of available support groups and cancer related non-governmental organisations in Malaysia.
Counselling means talking to a trained person and exploring problems or issues in a safe and supportive environment. It is very similar to psychotherapy. Whether you choose to see a counsellor or a psychotherapist, it is very important to choose a person you feel comfortable with. It is also helpful to have a little knowledge about the different types of counselling and psychotherapy. There are many different therapies and they generally fall into three areas. These are
  • Behavioural therapies, which focus on thoughts and behaviours
  • Psychoanalytical and psychodynamic therapies, which focus on unconscious relationship patterns that evolved from childhood
  • Humanistic therapies, which focus on looking at the here and now
There are many times in our lives when we all really feel we need someone to listen to us. This is basically what counselling is – someone to listen to you. Being heard properly can be really important if you have cancer. You may find it difficult to deal with your diagnosis. And you may be feeling a bit lost amongst all the treatments and hospital appointments.
 
Most people feel very shocked when they are told they have cancer. It can turn your life upside down. Things you can normally cope with, such as going to work, shopping, looking after children and socialising, may become more difficult. Things in your life may feel as though they have less meaning for you. Your intimate relationships might change because of changes in how you look and the way you feel about yourself. The stress you’re under may mean that you can’t show the love and attention you want to your partner or children.
 
You may want to carry on with life as normal, but feel frustrated that you can’t. Many people with cancer have confusing and upsetting feelings, such as anger and sadness. And some people feel that they are not in control of their lives.
 
It is common to worry that your cancer could come back again after your treatment has finished. Or you may be afraid you are going to die. All of these feelings are very real and frightening. There’s only so much your mind can process at one time, so these feelings can become overwhelming.
 
But bottling feelings up can become very draining and make living your life very difficult. Counselling gives you an opportunity to explore your feelings and express them in a safe place. A counsellor can help you to find a way to make things less difficult to deal with.
If you’re a relative of someone with cancer, you may feel that you need some time to think about yourself and how you can cope. You are bound to have feelings of your own which you don’t want to burden your sick loved one with. Being able to express your feelings may help you to support your relative more effectively.


Choosing your type of counselling
The type of counselling you choose will depend on:
  • What you feel most comfortable with
  • How serious the issues are that you want to discuss
  • How long you have been having the problems
  • The type of issues you have, such as general worries about not coping, relationship problems, phobias
The important thing to remember is to tell your counsellor if you feel uncomfortable. For example, if they ask you questions that you don’t want to answer.
 
If you don’t feel that you’re getting on very well with your counsellor, you can always try someone else. Personality clashes do happen. So don’t feel bad. It doesn’t mean that counselling won’t help you or that the counsellor is bad at their job. A good counsellor will understand that you may find it more helpful to see someone else.
One to one supportive counselling means that you can talk about your problems and worries in privacy, knowing that what you say is confidential. You talk to a counsellor who is trained to listen and help you explore your thoughts and feelings. You may have practical issues and want some help to sort them out. The counsellor may not use a particular method here. They won't tell you what to do but they will listen to you carefully and help you find the best solutions for you. For counselling to work well it is important that you have a trusting and safe relationship with your counsellor. 
You may hear the terms cognitive therapy or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Cognitive describes the mental process that people use to remember, reason, understand, problem solve, and judge things. Behaviour describes your actions or reactions to something. CBT aims to help you change how you respond to situations or emotions.
 
This type of therapy helps you to understand how your thought patterns may be making you feel depressed or scared. This therapy also teaches you how to calm your body and mind. This helps you to control your feelings more, think more clearly, and generally feel better about things.
 
CBT is often used to help people overcome
  • Difficulty in keeping emotions such as anger, sadness, fear and guilt under control
  • Feeling very stressed
  • Addictions
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks and phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia and other sleep problems
  • Low self esteem
There is also group counselling, sometimes called group therapy. This means joining in a group where everyone discusses their problems together. Usually, everyone in the group is facing similar problems, but not always. The counsellor will facilitate the group and encourage people to express their feelings within it. Some people find it very helpful to learn that they are not alone with their worries. But this method doesn’t suit everyone, especially if you have some very personal and painful issues you want to discuss.
Because cancer often affects the whole family, it can sometimes help if you all see a counsellor together. Family members may be too scared to express to you how they really feel about your illness. You may not feel well enough or have the time to sit and talk honestly with your partner and children. Talking to children about cancer can be very difficult and upsetting. Having the support of a family counsellor may help make these things easier.
 
Children may be keeping a lot of their feelings to themselves for fear of upsetting you. They’re likely to be trying to deal with your illness as well as keeping up with schoolwork, looking after younger siblings and wanting to feel supported and accepted by friends.
 
How a child deals with a parent being ill will depend very much on their age. Very young children may not be emotionally developed enough to express their real feelings in words. They often express their feelings through play or their mood rather than in words, and they are often spontaneous in the way they do this. They may not be able to tap into how they are feeling on a specific occasion. A family counsellor may be able to help you recognise what your child is actually feeling. And suggest the best ways to support them.
 
Children aged between 8 and 12 have some understanding about a serious illness and how it will affect them. You have to be sensitive but straightforward. If you’re too subtle, they will lose the point. It may help to understand that children of this age may feel guilty when a parent is seriously ill. As if it’s somehow their fault. Or they might feel angry with a parent for not being there. Having said that, children can often react in a positive way too, reacting in a more mature way than you thought they could.
 
Being a teenager can be a time of emotional ups and downs. Teenagers often feel confused and unsure about themselves anyway. This can make the way they deal with a parent’s illness very different to that of a younger child. And their reactions are likely to be more intense than an adult's. It’s very important that they have the time to grieve about the illness and be included in what’s happening. They may become anxious, angry, moody, depressed or pretend that they’re coping very well when actually inside they’re feeling very scared and lonely. Equally, many teenagers behave in a mature and supportive way, and remain or become very close to their parents.
 
Seeing a counsellor together allows you all a set time to listen to each other’s worries. It can really help give everyone in the family a better understanding of what is happening. It can also bring you much closer together and encourage you to give each other more support.


How counselling can help
 
Counselling can help you sort out many different types of problems that you may face when you have cancer. For example, it can help with
  • Coping with your reactions to cancer
  • Family and relationship issues
  • Exploring personal issues
  • Dealing with practical issues
People have many reactions to cancer. You may feel fear, have strong reactions to changes to your body, or be anxious about treatment. Some people feel very angry, or find it difficult to cope with a feeling of loss of control. You may feel very stressed about having to cope with side effects of treatment, such as fatigue, pain or sickness.
 
Cancer can also affect your family relationships. It may affect how to talk to your children or your intimacy with your partner. It may also lead to role changes within the family, if you are no longer able to fulfil the role you used to, even temporarily.
 
Cancer can stir up many deeply personal issues such as consideration of your spirituality, sexuality and relationships. It may also affect your usual work and pleasure activities or your goals and ambitions.
 
Cancer may also cause financial strain. You may need to have difficult conversations about financial support, mortgages and pensions or making a will. All these can cause family tensions or extra stress for you. There may be practical problems such as transport problems or difficulty talking to your doctors. You may want to deal with things in ways that your friends or family don't agree with.
 
It can help to talk through any of these issues and feelings with someone outside your friends and family. It helps to talk to someone outside your daily life because your friends and family may be too close to the issues to see them clearly and objectively. A counsellor may help you to find different ways of coping that hadn't occurred to you before. And because counselling is confidential, you can be honest about what is bothering you.
There is no evidence to suggest that having counselling will help treat or cure your cancer. Nor is there any convincing evidence that it will help prolong your life. But there is a lot of evidence that counselling can help you to cope better with the many difficulties you face, during and after your cancer diagnosis and treatment. It can help reduce the stress you face and improve your quality of life.


How do I know if I need counselling?
 
Generally counselling will work better if you seek it out yourself. You may not get the best out of it if you don’t really want to be there. At the end of the day it is up to you whether or not you have counselling.
 
Some people prefer to talk things over with someone when they are first diagnosed with cancer. They need the support and time to sort out their feelings during their treatment. Other people will wait until their treatment is over and things have settled down a bit. Or it might not be until this stage that the full emotional impact of having cancer hits them. Some people may never feel the need to have counselling. As a general rule, if your cancer causes you any of these problems for any length of time, then counselling may help you to get back on track
  • Feeling very anxious, depressed, sad, tired or angry
  • Difficulties coping with everyday issues such as work or socialising
  • Problems with sleeping and concentrating
  • Relationship, sexual or financial problems
 
Remember though that many of these symptoms can be side effects from your cancer and its treatment. They are likely to go away once your treatment has finished, though it may take a while. It’s very important to let your doctor or nurse know about any symptoms that you have.
Many people are put off counselling because they feel it’s a sign of weakness, that they are going mad, or that they’ve failed to cope with things on their own. This is very far from the truth. Admitting to yourself that you need help is a strength, not a weakness. Not everyone who has cancer needs counselling. People handle stress in different ways. It all depends on the type of person you are, your genetic make up, how much support you have, and your life experiences.
 
So if you feel that counselling could help, don’t feel it’s a weakness to ask for it. In fact, it takes a lot of courage to seek help with a counsellor. It shows that you’re taking control of things. You recognise that at this point in your life, you need someone to talk to, to help sort out your thoughts and feelings. That is a very good thing. In the long run it may make you a much stronger person and help lessen the struggle you’re going through.
 
Having counselling is a really positive experience for many people. It can sound a bit daunting and it can be upsetting at times. But it can be of real benefit during or after your treatment to have an hour every week devoted just to you. You have some time to spend thinking about how you feel, what you want, and what’s happening in your life right now. More than that, your counsellor can concentrate on really taking in what you’re saying and what you’re going through. You can say whatever you like and it will stay between you and your counsellor.
 
The emotional pressures of a cancer diagnosis can be immense, both during treatment and afterwards. Talking to a counsellor gives you a chance to talk about what it really feels like, and to share and let go of some of your feelings.
 
The important things to remember about going to see a counsellor are that
  • It is not a sign of weakness
  • It doesn’t mean that you can't cope
  • It doesn't mean you are going mad
  • It can help you to cope and to feel better about things
Not everyone who has cancer needs to get professional counselling. Of course, many of us have people who regularly listen to our worries and problems. These people may be family members and friends, a religious adviser or a caring neighbour. And for many, these people will be all they want and need. But this isn’t always enough. Sometimes, it’s easier to talk to someone who doesn’t know you quite as well. There are several advantages of talking to a professional counsellor who is outside your immediate circle of family and friends. It can mean that
  • You don't have to worry about upsetting or worrying them
  • They will not judge you or what you have done
  • You may find it easier to sort out and talk about your deepest feelings
  • Everything you say will be confidential because your counsellor won't tell anyone else
  • They won’t say something just because it is what they think you want to hear


Support group
What is a cancer support group? 
Cancer support groups provide an opportunity for people affected by cancer to meet for discussions in an emotionally supportive environment. Groups may also choose to engage in fundraising, advocacy, practical support or social and educational activities, according to the wants and needs of members. 

Group members can discuss the impacts of diagnosis and treatment and access evidence-based information for themselves and for families and carers. 
Cancer support groups are often a place of social connections, where people can learn not only to live with cancer but also to enjoy life during and after their treatment. 

Support groups meet at locations and times that suit their particular members and offer activities determined by group members. Some groups have a specific-cancer focus (for example, a focus on breast or prostate cancer) while others are open to people affected by any type of cancer. Groups can also choose to focus on people sharing other characteristics, for example ethnicity or age group. 

Every group is different so people thinking of attending a group are advised to try a few to find one that is a good fit for their needs.

What makes a good leader? 
It’s important that cancer support group leaders are stable in their own health and emotionally ready to take on the challenges and responsibilities of leading a group. Cancer Council Victoria recommends that leaders are at least 18 months to 2 years post-diagnosis.
 
Training is an important part of developing a leader’s communication skills and empathic understanding. It’s also critical in strengthening a leader’s ability to deal with confronting situations such as grief, loss, anger and dominating group members. Research shows that trained leaders are better equipped to provide a safe and nurturing environment and experience less difficulty than leaders without training.

Support groups at NCSM
NCSM’s Resource and Wellness Centre (RWC) offers two cancer support groups to newly diagnosed patients as well as survivors. 
  • Prostate cancer patients and survivors meet up every third Thursday of the month from 1-3pm.
