​​​About Psychology at Princess Margaret

Psychologists are experts in assessing, diagnosing and treating mental health conditions. At Princess Margaret our psychologists specialize in helping you and your family cope with the physical, emotional and behavioural challenges of a cancer diagnosis. Our services are available to you throughout your cancer experience.

We can help you:

  • Cope with your diagnosis
  • Engage in healthy lifestyle behaviour-change as you prepare for treatment
  • Adjust to the short-term and long-term side-effects of treatment
  • Adapt to cancer-related fear, anxiety and sadness
  • Tolerate uncertainty and feel more in control and less overwhelmed

A sub-specialty within our clinical psychology team is clinical neuropsychology. Our neuropsychologists assess the impact of cancer and its treatment on cognitive function (the ability to think) and provide instruction on the development of new skills to deal with the losses in cognitive function.
