Loneliness and leukaemia, what can help me?

Feelings of loneliness and isolation are not uncommon following your leukaemia diagnosis. We're hosting our webinar to look at ways to help manage these emotions. Hopefully, the webinar will equip you with some effective coping methods.

15 December 2022

We may feel lonely even when we are surrounded by people; being alone does not always lead to loneliness. Some of us may be alone, some of us may live with family or friends, but, regardless of our living circumstances, we are all at risk of loneliness. Come along to our webinar where we will speak to Counsellor Anne Crook and look at ways to combat feelings of isolation and loneliness.

We will be joined by:

  • Anne Crook, Counsellor / Psychotherapist, Psycho-oncology The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

Webinar details

When: Thursday 15th December, 3:30pm
Where: Online via Zoom and Facebook Live
Who: Leukaemia Care and Counsellor / Psychotherapist, Anne Crook
Registration fee: Free
