About Us

The Cancer Counselling Trust is the only national charity with the remit to provide free specialist counselling for those affected by cancer and their family and friends.

Formed in 1999, the charity has grown organically from a small base, attaining a reputation for excellence.

Our counsellors are all fully qualified and have worked in the field of cancer for decades and are specialists in their work. This specialism allows clients to feel understood and supported not only in what they’re going through but in understanding stages of diagnosis, different types of treatment and the impact varying types of cancer can have.


All Cancer Counselling Trust psychotherapists and counsellors have had specialist training and are experienced in working with people affected by cancer. We are able to see individuals and couples.

The therapists and counsellors are registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) or the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and subscribe to the BACP Code of Ethics and Standards. All contact with The Cancer Counselling Trust is held in strictest confidence.
