In this episode, I sat down with Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, Garineh Serpekian and Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Life Coach, Adrienne Potter, and discussed how to support loved ones diagnosed with cancer. They shared tips on what to say and what not to say, conventional and alternative treatments, and how to seek support. The conversation was both vulnerable and informative and even included some humour. Check out the recommended books and websites mentioned during the live session.
