As a CISS member you are entitled to personal support, getting help with identifying issues that might have contributed to you getting cancer. For this step we have experienced staff available.
If you live in the Sydney area you can visit our Centre at St Leonards during the following business hours:
If you live outside Sydney you can phone us during office hours and, if necessary arrange a convenient time to call us for a free introductory personal support session.
In this first session, a staff member will find out the sort of things you might be interested in, to start your self-help healing program, including options. Further sessions are available.
CISS provides regular Support Groups (including online) for members. These groups are facilitated by experienced psychologists and/or counselors registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, or its equivalent. Each session is conducted over a two-hour period in a safe and confidential environment.
