Whatever kind of cancer, and whatever stage you’re at – we're here for you.

All our cancer support specialists have expert knowledge about cancer and treatment, and many are NHS-trained.

Maggie's Cardiff

Position:

Clinical Psychologist

I have worked on the psychological impact of physical illness my whole career.

At , I am able to give visitors time to emotionally process what is happening, a safe space where you can express how you feel and explore ways of working with that. I love helping individuals, relatives and groups to apply what we know about how our minds work and building psychological resilience to the challenges of cancer and treatment.

Cancer Support Specialist

After qualifying in 2019 as a Therapeutic Radiographer, I worked in Aberdeen for 3 years before coming to Cardiff in 2022. 

I am here to support you through the emotional, social and practical impacts of cancer. You don't need to book to come and see us - just come in.

Position:

Cancer Support Specialist

I am a therapy radiographer, having worked in the Radiotherapy & Oncology clinical setting since 2010 before joining Maggie’s in 2019 as a Cancer Support Specialist. It is a privilege to have been here from the beginning of Maggie’s Cardiff and work in such a warm and supportive environment.

My role is to support anyone affected by cancer, whether you are the patient or a loved one of the person diagnosed. I can provide one-to-one emotional and psychological support, give advice about treatment options and side effect management. If you need support with anything related to your cancer, I am here to help you and listen. All of this is done in a warm, relaxing and supportive environment and always with a cuppa!

I also run some of our support groups, workshops and courses here in the centre. We have a fantastic programme of support for you and your family to access, so just come in and have a chat with us, anytime you need.
