About Us

The Macmillan Wellbeing Centre

People who use the Centre tell us that when they, or someone close, receive a diagnosis of cancer, life limiting illness or other long term condition – things that had been certain in life (relationships, financial security, roles and aspirations) are thrown into serious doubt. We provide the psychological and emotional support that enables people to build resilience and resourcefulness so that, in time, they can put the pieces back together again and live as well as possible for as long as possible.

There are therapeutic groups to help people build confidence, manage fatigue, learn techniques to promote relaxation and practice gentle exercise and yoga. We offer complementary therapies, supportive counselling and bereavement counselling. Clients can also relieve their sense of isolation, express their emotions through art, or boost their mood through singing in our choir.

In recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of people who, following treatment for life limiting illnesses, are able to live active healthy lives for a number of years. The Centre provides an opportunity to build on their skills and resourcefulness and stay in good physical and emotional health into the future. By changing our name and logo we aim to reflect the very positive attitude we try to nurture in response to the challenges a life changing diagnosis brings to people.

For these reasons, the emphasis on ‘wellbeing’ is important to us. Although the name may have changed, the Centre retains the values and principles we have always had.
