    A Short Relaxation

    A Short Relaxation

    A short 8-minute relaxation recording from psychotherapist and trainer Jo Ham, who has worked alongside and supported Sarcoma UK's staff for almost ten years. We join her on a walk with her dog through woods, encountering the sounds of animals and nature along the way, as Jo talks you through how to slow down, calm the mind and reset internally.

    Please enjoy and share but do not listen whilst driving or when operating machinery of any kind.

    A Moment of Peace and Calm from Sarcoma UK

    A Moment of Peace and Calm from Sarcoma UK

    Looking after your mental wellbeing is so important, especially at a time where the coronavirus pandemic is a major cause of worry and stress, regardless of whether you are a cancer patient or not.

    We reached out to therapist and counsellor Jo Ham, who has been working with Sarcoma UK for almost a decade, to record a very special mindfulness and relaxation podcast to help in these unsettling times. We join her as she walks through some woods on the edges of London, so keep an ear out for the birds, sounds of nature and the stream.

    Please stop, enjoy and share.

    Note: don't listen to this whilst driving or operating machinery.

    Emily's Story: The comeback kid

    Emily's Story: The comeback kid

    We’re joining Emily Travis for a day of chemotherapy for sarcoma cancer. This is Day 8 of her treatment cycle - supposedly the easy day as she puts it - but things are not off to a great start.

    Despite having been given a terminal diagnosis on multiple occasions, Emily Travis keeps going. She's in London to get pumped full of drugs to keep her cancer at bay and she shares the whole experience.

    Not easy listening by any means, but important listening as we hear in her own words how cancer came into her life and how she just kept going.
