The word cancer suggests an issue within the body and very physical symptoms. But chronic illness can have detrimental effects on our mental health and sometimes psychological stress can even encourage the development of cancer.

At Angeles Health we use a unique program called Functional Oncology that goes beyond the physical symptoms of cancer. Our system treats the patient, not just the disease, and we use a team of specialists to ensure the patient is assessed on a holistic basis and all areas of the body, mind and spirit are taken into account.

Psychology and spirituality form a viatl component of this process and we thus employ a dedicated spiritual psychologist to assess and counsel our patients to create the best possible outcome for them.

Spiritual Psychologist

The mind is often referred to as “the untouched organ”, and for many doctors it is not a part of the overall chronic illness in the case of cancer. Yet the mind filters everything we encounter, aided by our experiences, thoughts, beliefs and any fears. The Angeles Health functional approach to cancer treatment sees the mind as having a crucial role in cancer treatment. Our spiritual psychologists have trained in conventional therapy but also practise a wide variety of alternative interventions to heal the mind and the body. Some of these are: Focusing, Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology and Emotional Medicine. The mind and body are of equal importance at Angeles Health.
