Cancer Coaching Q & A


What is cancer coaching?

Cancer coaching is an additional service you may benefit from when you participate in the medical membership program at Alpha Health & Wellness, DPC. Cancer coaching is a structured program that gives you the tools you need to better manage side effects, offers clarity on current research and your treatment options, and provides education and guidance to help you manage the anxiety and depression you may experience from your diagnosis.

What can I expect from cancer coaching?

You deserve to feel empowered and equipped during your fight against cancer. Cancer coaching provides you with the tools and support you need to take back control of your life. The cancer coach will help the client in every detail of their journey through cancer diagnosis, treatment and remission. For cancer survivors the focus is on prevention, decreasing risk and recovering from side effects of treatment and self-care modalities to help the client stay in remission and live a full life. Integrative cancer coaches focus on the mind, body, and spirit. Your coach is with you for the long haul and offers programs that last for three, six, nine or more months, depending on your need.

What types of cancer coaching packages are offered?

With cancer coaching, you have different programs to choose from depending on your need. Some of the programs include:

Cancer 101 coaching package

The Cancer 101 coaching package is designed to help you understand your diagnosis and treatment options immediately following your diagnosis. Being told you have cancer can stir up an array of emotions that may make it hard for you to fully comprehend all of your treatment options, as well as the types of decisions you need to make.

Your cancer coach understands exactly how you feel and provides the guidance and support you need to make decisions with clarity. Your coach also provides you with the tools and techniques to help you manage side effects, including pain, naturally.

Cancer treatment coaching package

If you’re currently in treatment and you desperately need answers and support, then the cancer treatment coaching package may be for you. With this package, your coach reviews your oncologist’s treatment plan with you and answers all of your questions regarding treatment. Your cancer coach also provides support after treatment, including a detoxification program and nutrition therapy to help in the recovery process.

Survivorship coaching package

The survivorship coaching package helps you navigate life after remission. Your coach provides you with guidance and tools to help you reclaim your health and your life, and provides you with the additional support most cancer survivors need after treatment.

Cancer is a scary diagnosis, but you don’t have to do it alone. Cancer coaching provides you with the support and tools you need to help you maintain control of your life through diagnosis, treatment, and remission.
