Secondary Cancer Support - MBSR Programme


Are you living with a secondary / metastatic cancer diagnosis?

Cork ARC offer a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programme for those living with secondary cancer or with a long-term illness related to cancer or its treatment. 

Our MBSR programme will provide the skills to participants to use their own resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness.

Our facilitator Deborah O'Neill Fearon has adapted the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction or MBSR programme to help support those dealing with treatment, fatigue and pain. It is a group programme and offers our visitors a chance to learn a range of mindfulness practices that can be used in daily life to reduce stress and enhance wellbeing. 

Since 1979, a growing consensus has emerged among health care providers that mindfulness is a powerful, effective method for reducing physical and psychological suffering while building our capacity for greater health, balance, ease, and peace of mind. 

In addition to this programme, we facilitate an ongoing monthly MBSR group re-meet, where we offer a space for past programme attendees to continue to utilise mindfulness practices and to reconnect with our service at Cork ARC. 

If you would like to find out more about this programme, please contact us by dropping into any of our centres or by phoning 021 4276688.
