Counselling is a major complementary health care service in cancer support.

The counsellor will assist the client in dealing with issues and emotions felt on the cancer journey.

Sessions are strictly confidential between the counsellor and the client.

All counsellors practicing at Cancer Care Centre are fully qualified and registered with either the Counsellors’ Association of South Australia (CASA) or Australian Counselling Association (ACA).

Under CASA & ACA guidelines, counsellors receive regular supervision from a qualified, registered supervisor.

Counselling can be undertaken by a single person, a couple or family group.

Contact the staff on (08) 8272 2411 for more information. As a member your first counselling session is free.

The Cancer Care Centre provides high quality complementary support for cancer sufferers, their carers and family groups.

Meet Our Counsellors

Ms Dagmar Zobel

Dagmar is a qualified Counsellor, Educator, Reiki Master and Meditation Teacher. She is working in private practice and volunteers 1 day for the Cancer Care Centre as a Counsellor.

She believes strongly in the healing powers of the body/mind connection and is passionate about supporting people on their journey. Her parents both died of cancer and didn’t have the opportunity to reach out to a centre.

The Cancer Care Centre is a place where people can get information, support and compassion. Most importantly it is run by people who care for people.

 

Ms Natalie Williams

Natalie has worked as a counselor for 20 years, including 12 years as a volunteer with the Cancer Care Centre. As a counselor she sees the value of providing a haven where people can talk about challenges and struggles they face with cancer, and its effect on their lives. That is why she likes to call the Cancer Care Centre a second home, a place of support and care which welcomes partners, friends and family members.

She recognizes that during life there are challenges that bring sad and stressful moments but also opportunities for closeness and connection.  Natalie’s aim is to provide support to help people cope with the stresses and offer help with the healing process.

 

I have been finding my counselling sessions over the past year to be extremely helpful. It has allowed me to gradually gain awareness of my very troubled and hurting child between ages 6-12 years. I have been counselled on how to use meditation to support my child self and have felt the benefits of this. I have felt love and forgiveness. I know there is more to heal and I will be continuing working with Dagmar. I have also recommended her to others. I am very grateful to the Centre for helping this to be possible. I don’t think I would have sought out a counsellor independently.
