Coming to terms with a genetic predisposition to cancer in the family can leave a person with many questions. What does this mean for me? What does this mean for my child? Will my family be affected?
Is Ireland geared up to cater for the current and future demand in this area?
Is the Profession recognised in Ireland???
Do we provide training in Ireland???
Are counsellors registered in Ireland???
