Comprehensive Cancer Center Freiburg - CCCF

Psychological Counselling

in Oncology

The diagnosis of cancer not only affects the body of a person, it often affects the entire life situation of several people. It can be particularly stressful for those affected, partners, children, relatives and friends in various ways. Feelings of insecurity and fear can arise.
We help you to deal with the individual challenges of your tumour disease.

What do we do?

We provide counselling for patients with a cancer diagnosis or their relatives in all phases of cancer.

We offer individual or couples counselling.

Counselling topics can include

  •     Acute crises and overload
  •     Coming to terms with illness
  •     Organising everyday life
  •     Dealing with relatives or the person with the illness
  •     Information about other services
  •     Physical impairments, side effects of therapy
  •     Grief, loss, saying goodbye
  •     Organising outpatient support services such as psychotherapy or self-help groups

Specific issues and problem areas that our clients often mention are:

  •     Dealing with the changes caused by the illness, such as altered body or self-image, helplessness, reduced ability to perform
  •     Dealing with difficult feelings such as loss of control, fears of death/ dying, feelings of guilt, helplessness
  •     Illness-related problems in relationships, family and work
  •     Dealing with physical symptoms, for example exhaustion or pain
  •     Questions about meaningfulness, coming to terms with spirituality
  •    Need for support in bereavement situations
Our general conditions

Psychological counselling focuses on the cancer and its effects.
Contact us to arrange individual counselling appointments. You do not need a referral; counselling is free of charge and subject to confidentiality.

This counselling is a low-threshold service offered by psychologists or psychotherapists trained in psycho-oncology. We can offer you prompt counselling appointments within 14 days. Our counselling service is distinct from psychotherapy. In many cases, however, psychological counselling is sufficient to provide you with professional support for your current needs and goals. If necessary, we can work with you to assess whether psychotherapeutic treatment is necessary and refer you to a psychotherapist in private practice.

We are here for you!
