Counselling

At CCiS we know that the psychological effects of a cancer diagnosis are difficult and complicated. People react differently to treatment both physically and emotionally, but our fully trained Cancer Specialist Counsellors are here to listen. A session will help you unload the burden you may feel in a safe space and allow for greater clarity making it easier to come to terms with what is happening and how you can manage your future.

Complementary Therapy

Take time for yourself and indulge in one of the free complementary therapies we provide for cancer patients through our John Le Vay Cancer Information Centre at Ipswich Hospital and at the Woodbridge Complementary Health Centre, Sandy Lane, Woodbridge. Complementary Therapy has been proven to reduce fear and anxiety, whilst raising self esteem, allowing for the self management of a cancer diagnosis.


It’s been such a help to get me both physically and mentally through this difficult time. It is only with this help that I am finally able to move on.

Beauty Workshops

It's All About You.

Our It’s All About You Beauty Workshops take place over a day set in peaceful surroundings in both Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds for the ultimate girls experience. Happening in a non-clinical environment the workshop is delivered in a relaxed, interactive format, where you'll be given plenty of advice and tips whether you've never worn make up before or are a seasoned pro. With the help of  the CCiS team and students from West Suffolk college you'll learn about the changes that may occur during treatment, how to look after your skin using organic skincare products from Balm Balm and key makeup techniques including matching foundations and drawing eyebrows, with free eyebrow stencils to take away.

All of our luxury products have been specially selected as petrochemical, paraben and talc free resulting in the best possible products for you.

I felt special. You reminded me of just who I was. When I got home I looked in the mirror and said yes, I am still here even with this horrible disease.

Human Hair Wigs

Launched in 2018, we now have our very own Wig Room at CCiS HQ in central Ipswich. Here you can book in for a consultation and try our full range of beautiful human hair wigs in private and intimate surroundings.

I feel as if I have been given an amazing gift. My Mum feels “herself” again and I cannot put into words how happy I feel to see her smile again. The time and thoughtfulness Karen showed us has given us memories to treasure.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Educational Workshops

Don't ignore the signs.

Half of all people will receive a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lifetime. It's a scary statistic, but it's a reality that we need to be prepared for. Our Educational Workshops will do just that. The first of their kind in the UK, we have successfully provided them to over 26,000 people across Suffolk. The interactive workshops give greater awareness surrounding cancer, including lifestyle, diet, early signs and symptoms. As they're tailored to each audience's specific requirements they're perfect for schools, businesses and community groups. They can cover specific topics such as teaching children about sun safety or teaching the local football club about testicular health, or they can be more general, depending on your need.

An early diagnosis leads to more successful and less invasive treatment, meaning what is learnt at one of our workshops really can save lives.

Your educator was brilliant, very friendly and incredibly professional. The feedback was brilliant and we wouldn’t hesitate to have more cancer awareness sessions. We shall invite you back again!

Sun awareness workshops

Our sun awareness workshops focus on giving young students information about the necessity to protect themselves whilst outside, we get the message across in an interactive and fun way, using music art, props and PowerPoint. 

By planting the seeds if sun safety, not just at home, but in the classroom, we can begin to evoke a much needed culture change and shift in attitudes towards sun safety. This will significantly reduce the soaring rates of skin cancer cases and deaths in the UK for our future generations.  

Several students emailed me to voice their appreciation of the whole experience. They particularly valued the adult feel to the day as well as the actual content provided.
