We are currently looking for volunteer massage therapists and reflexologists to work with clients in our Centre (based near Clapham Junction) and for our Home Visiting Service which supports clients in their own homes in southeast / southwest and central London. If you are interested in volunteering in the Centre, we ask that you give one morning or afternoon a week to see 3 clients. If you are interested in our Home Visiting Service you will need to do our training course which takes place over 9 sessions from early October. We ask that you see one client at a time in a location convenient to where you live or work.
About Paul's Cancer Support Centre: helping anyone who has been affected by cancer
We recognise that every person has different needs and reactions to life threatening illness. Treatment is tailored to the needs of each individual. After an initial assessment, each client is able to choose a course of one-to-one therapies including counselling, healing, massage, reflexology, relaxation with meditation and hypnotherapy. In addition, we run group activities including yoga, creative therapy, centred in the present, self-discovery and group relaxation. All these therapies may be safely used alongside medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy and can be very effective at lessening side effects and improving the quality of life of people receiving these treatments.
Our Home Visiting Service visits about 85 homes a year, providing counselling, massage, reflexology and befriending to people housebound through cancer and to their carers.
