The Pink Place Services

Cancer support & services for women in & around North Hampshire

Wellbeing Sessions

The Pink Place welcomes our Guests (ladies with a cancer diagnosis) at any point from initial diagnosis to up to 3 years after the end of treatment. Our weekly sessions provide an opportunity to benefit from our Wellbeing Services which include Complementary Therapies, Hair and Pampering Services. You will meet others in a similar situation and receive support, counselling and information.

Guests arrive and enjoy refreshments and homemade cake in a relaxed environment and learn what therapies and services are available that day. Any chosen therapies will be tailored to your own medical and personal needs. The rest of the morning allows time to enjoy therapies, chat to others and discover our many resources. You may choose to be pampered, sit and listen or just look for advice – the choice is yours.

The first six wellbeing sessions are provided free of charge, though donations are always gratefully received as we rely on donations and fundraising events to fund all our services.
