We speak to Karin about dealing with her recurrence and how she supports others with their mental health after a breast cancer diagnosis.

Struggling with cancer is normal 

On this episode, we are speaking with Karin Sieger: a psychotherapist, writer and podcast host based in London.

A lot of people with breast cancer do not realise how severely a diagnosis can affect their mental health. As someone who has had breast cancer twice, Karin more than understands the impact that breast cancer and its treatment can have on a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing.

Karin spoke to us about how she dealt with her diagnoses, treatment, and recovery, as well as how she uses her experience to help others going through breast cancer.

 

There are a lot of reasons to be anxious and to feel down. But we have to find a way of living with that and living our lives in a way that continues to make sense and be satisfying.

You can hear more from Karin on her website and podcast, 'Cancer and You'.

Everyone’s experience is unique to them. This podcast contains the personal story and experience of the speaker, rather than that of Breast Cancer Now.
