Welcome to a Safe Space to connect, share and be empowered.
Here at Samspaces, with the help of an incredible network of professionals, from therapists, courses, trainers and experts, we offer lots of different options to tap into as and when you need them; to be that big cosy blanket on the cold days and the thin light sheet on the warmer ones!
I have collaborated with the fantastic Hanging By A Fred to offer a unique and beautiful Samspace Bracelet. Made of disused climbing rope, they are strong and hard-wearing, mirroring the strength and courage of the person wearing it. The many threads wrapped around this rope represent those of healing, recovery and resilience, hope and bravery. The special charms are a reminder that we are truly amazing, and if we believe in ourselves we will always succeed. We are never alone and are always being looked after.
They have been produced to raise the profile of After Cancer Awareness, as well as representing the unique patient-to-patient solidarity within our communities.
Freddie Matthews started designing jewellery and pieces for the home made from climbing rope after losing her father to cancer. She is a truly inspirational lady whose experience of supporting someone through cancer is phenomenal.
The bracelets cost £19.99 including post and packaging, with 10% going to the charity Climbers Against Cancer.

Safe Space gatherings are held monthly for around two hours (or so!). Everyone is welcome to come and have fun, share experiences or just sit and listen. It is usually in the Farnham area, just outside Guildford, but we are hoping to start in Godalming or Cranleigh soon too.
You don’t even have to talk about the big C, we are sometimes too distracted to even think about that! We usually do a different activity each month, be it a walk, painting pottery, a talk or a taster session for a wellbeing course or therapy.
There are usually six to seven people each time; some come regularly, others as and when they are able. There is no pressure. The beauty of this group is that everyone knows it is here and can come along when they need to.
Your first session is free and the cost thereafter is £5 per session, per person, to cover refreshments.

Space to Talk
If you would rather start with a more personal type of support, I am available for one-to-one chats either on phone, Skype or in person. You can simply talk your heart out, or if you need more pro-active support, a more personalised recovery programme just for you, we can discuss feel-good options designed to put yourself first and regain confidence, while putting you in touch with highly recommended professionals who have experience with post-cancer patients.
