CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Notice for all patients and visitors.
We are a clinician-led organisation where patient education and support services are initiated by the very people who treat breast cancer patients every day.
Your donation will help us enhance breast cancer treatment and care, and increase survival rates.
We began in 2009 with a vision to provide high quality care while conducting research that would deliver the most advanced treatments and save lives.
BCRC-WA conducts research into breast cancer treatment and care that underpins the treatment we provide to our patients.
PBCI will help us continue to reshape the future of breast cancer – offering world class treatment, care and support to patients and their families.
BCRC-WA provides a bulk-billed clinical psychology service to support people with breast cancer and their families. Our Clinical Psychologists collaborate with you and your Perth Breast Cancer Institute Specialists to assist you to manage the impact of breast cancer and other stressors.
How can a Psychologist help?
Most people come because they want to reduce upsetting feelings and improve their sense of well-being. This can happen through reflecting on your experience with a professional, through learning new skills and developing new perspectives.
Our Clinical Psychologists specialise in the impact of early and advanced breast cancer on all aspects of the person. They understand the range of concerns you may have including:
For those who have finished hospital-based treatment, we can help with issues including menopause symptoms, fear of cancer recurrence or spread, re-evaluation of priorities, adjusting to the “new normal,” and return to work or changing roles.
What to expect
In the first session, we will endeavour to get to know you and to understand your concerns. We will ask questions such as “how you have coped in the past with difficult things in your life” and/or “what would you like to get out of seeing a psychologist?”.
We work in collaboration with your PBCI Specialist and other members of the team, using an evidence-based approach to provide constructive and supportive strategies.
Members of your family are welcome to come with you, or they can see a psychologist separately.
