Shine exists exclusively to support adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s who have experienced a cancer diagnosis. Please click the link above to see the events they have available.
In 2018 they started running group and individual sessions as part of the Help Harry Help Others Charity Support, on stress release, relaxation, better sleep, weight release, healthy living and pain release. More recently they have combined these into a single group session each month to cover Stress Release, Sleep and Weight Management. Pain Release sessions are available by request.
The feedback has been most positive and the current dates and times for the 2020 sessions click the link above;
