Please listen here to me being interviewed by my psychologist colleague, Dr Frances Goodhart, about why I wrote my book on cancer’s long term effects.
So many of us have them and increasing numbers, but there is still a lot of resistance to recognising this.

“I have just completed listening to the podcast - it was great on all levels - how do you manage to be so fluent with such difficult and searching questions? I think that what is so effective about both your book and this is how your complete honesty and integrity is so obvious that the truth of what you say cannot be avoided or argued away. So well done and also thankyou for being so ready to show vulnerability in a way to inform all those with ears to hear.” - Teresa Taylor, retired counsellor

Just published - article on my partner, Alzheimer’s and me. This article first appeared in the April 2023 issue of Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal, published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. https://www.bacp.co.uk/bacp-journals/healthcare-counselling-and-psychotherapy-journal/  ©BACP 2023.’

'Dr Galgut's short book is an excellent and thoughtful way into this complex area for patients and indeed all health professionals dealing with cancer.’
Professor Karol Sikora, Consultant Oncologist
