TYA Counselling Service

We're here for you

The TYA counselling service is here to help you and your family deal with the emotional side of your cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Counselling is available to all 16-24 year old's who have a cancer diagnosis, your partners, parents and siblings.

Teenage and Young Adult quite room

Talking to family and friends about your problems or feelings can be hard.

Sometimes it's easier to talk to a professional who can help you make sense of how you feel, and look at ways of coping. Sessions can be on a regular, or one off basis. Counselling is available during, and after treatment.

Non-urgent advice: What we offer

In person

We offer appointments in person, or if you are an inpatient at Addenbrooke's, we can visit you on the ward, or in clinic.


Some people may prefer talking on the phone or via video call if they are outside of the hospital.


We run support groups and events for particular groups, such as bereaved families.
