Oncology Coaching


Oncology Coaching:
Integrative Approaches for coaching those affected by cancer – patients, families, support persons, and professionals

Course Description

Explore innovative approaches to oncology coaching from a holistic, integral perspective that is drawn from our collective interest and experience in the oncology field.  We will focus on mental tools in the diagnostic process, mythical tools for progressing through the cancer experience, intuitive tools for dealing with dietary issues, archaic tools of mindfulness and compassion to incorporate the spiritual aspects, and an overall integral approach for supporting clients and caregivers.

We will explore each phase of a cancer journey (diagnosis, treatment, post-treatment) and link major tools to use for each structure of consciousness. There will be opportunity for practicing selected tools and coaching approaches, and discussion–with goal of assisting the coach to deal with her/his own feelings and experience of this disease, in order to be present and at ease adapting to the needs of each client.
