Other Services

Our counselling service is a vital resource for people coping with the emotional impact of a life threatening condition. However, we recognise that some of the people in need of support might benefit from a different approach. With this in mind, we've been working with specialist practitioners to develop new services, including our mindfulness and nature connection therapy courses.

WHY Cancer Charity


A monthly therapeutic gardening group for bereaved adults

Monthly on Tuesdays from 25th January 2022

We Hear You and the Walled Garden in Mells are collaborating to offer a monthly year-long group for people who have lost a loved one to cancer or other life threatening conditions. Meeting in this beautiful outdoor setting provides opportunities for the group to connect through mindful gardening activities and reflection. Participants can explore the seasonality of the natural environment and nature’s cycles of death and renewal in a supportive and inclusive environment. Please contact us to book a place for WHYgrow.

You are welcome to join the group at any point in the year.

WHY Cancer Charity


WHYwalkandtalk is an opportunity to access one-to-one counselling with a member of our specialist team, while walking (or sitting) in a beautiful natural setting. We hope this new service will enable more people to access our support, in a way that suits them. Call us on 01373 455255 or email for more information.

WHY Cancer Charity

The Coffee Connection

WHY launched a new drop-in support group for anyone affected or bereaved by cancer or a life-limiting illness in December 2019, in partnership with Dorothy House Hospice Care. The group currently runs online on Mondays from 10am to 10.45, although we hope to return to a face-to-face group soon.

There are always representatives of Dorothy House and WHY at the group for those who would like to ask about additional support available. No booking required, just email us for the link to join..
