Information & Support
The North Tipperary Hospice Movement are here to help in whatever way possible in your experience of cancer, whether you are a cancer patient, a partner, relative or friend of someone with cancer.
Our services include emotional support, practical information, professional counselling, complementary therapies in a safe, confidential & welcoming environment. Between our three centres, we are open five days a week so you can drop in without appointment or call us to find out more about our services & activities.
Through our many services, one-to-one therapies, counselling, support nurse, exercise classes, support groups and workshops we aim to give the best information and emotional and practical support that will help make a difference to you and your family at this time. We hope you will find the same warm welcome when you visit us.
Coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis can be very difficult. Sometimes we need to stay strong for others & suppress the many thoughts running through our minds. During this difficult time, we are here to help you. When you talk to a professional counsellor about what is going on in your life, they will help you manage the many different worries & concerns more effectively. Over time this will help the client gain the inner strength necessary to deal with the fear & equip them with the hope & confidence to deal with their situation.
