At Mediclinic City Hospital’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre, we understand that cancer not only affects the body but also the mind and spirit. Our supportive care services include psychological counselling, pain management, and nutrition counselling. We also offer survivorship support to help our patients as they move forward in their journey.

A clinical psychologist for cancer treatment is a specialised professional who provides support and therapy to cancer patients and their families. The psychologist assists the patient in coping with the emotional and psychological effects of the disease, such as anxiety, depression, and grief.

They also work to improve the patient's quality of life during treatment and help them adjust to changes in their physical conditions, including pain management and life adjustments post-treatment. The psychologist may also help the patient make important decisions related to their care, such as treatment options and end-of-life planning.

A clinical psychologist for cancer treatment uses a wide variety of therapy techniques to help cancer patients, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (ENDR), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and group therapy. In addition to individual therapy, the psychologist often works with the patient's medical team to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses both physical and emotional needs.

Overall, a clinical psychologist for cancer treatment is an essential member of the medical team, working to ensure that patients receive holistic care and support during their cancer journey.
