How to build resilience after cancer

Watch Nevo Burrell, Image Consultant and stylist, as she discusses different approaches to building resilience.

Resilience is an individual’s ability to maintain or restore relatively stable psychological and physical functioning when confronted with stressful life events and adversities.

Cancer and its after affects are associated with substantial distress that can cause long-lasting negative psychological outcomes. Learning how to build resilience can help reduce the risk of serious mental distress and help you to build a positive life after your own cancer experience.

Why is resilience important?

  • It helps us develop tools to protect us when we have over whelming experiences

  • It helps us to maintain balance in our lives during difficult or stressful periods

  • It can also protect us from the development of some mental health difficulties and issues

In this video Nevo discusses -

  • What is resilience

  • How do we build resilience

  • Your self care plan

A combination of factors contribute to building resilience. The good news is that resilience is something that you can develop over time. We hope that the prompts provided in the video by Nevo will help you understand what you could incorporate into your own self care plan, or what you might already be doing, to build resilience.


Nevo works with cancer thrivers to help them cope with the effects of diagnosis, treatment and post-cancer through style. Encouraging healing, resilience and regaining confidence. Find out more about Nevo Burrell and the services she offers.
