Welcome back to the Potential Psychology Podcast.
My guest today once specialised in psycho-oncology, the human side of cancer. In 2010 at the age of 37 she received the terrifying news that she had not one but two primary breast cancers. This became a frightening opportunity to practice what she preaches. The practitioner became the patient.
In this episode we talk about:
Her book (it made me cry - and laugh!)
Death anxiety and survivor guilt
What she has learnt about living with a cancer diagnosis as a psychologist, a survivor, a partner, a daughter, a granddaughter, a sibling and a friend
How to reframe even life's toughest moments and thrive through cancer
Jodie's tips for supporting someone through cancer
Rarely have I met someone so positive, so resilient and so open as Jodie. This is a wonderful conversation and an opportunity for us all to learn about an experience that touches so many. Join me to hear Jodie’s story.
