About Us

Hi, we are Isabel van der Ven and Dr. Jo Lee, the founders of LYLAC and both love the work we do.
We have very different backgrounds and have both experienced cancer and a gap in after-care.

Jo (right) works as a GP and Isabel (left) works as an Associate coach and trainer with Working With Cancer.
We’re both qualified Life Coaches and work together as Cancer Coaches for over 10 years now with our different skills and experiences.
We started meeting in 2008 with just an idea and a blank canvas. Since then we’ve been developing LYLAC which has grown over the years into what it is today

After the completion of treatment people often feel left alone to try to handle the effects of their illness.
We can help you in your recovery, both physically and emotionally; to support you in supporting yourself.

We strongly believe in the principle of “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.  We provide the necessary tools and skills so that cancer survivors are able to support themselves now and in the future.
