Changing Faces supports people who have any condition or injury that affects their appearance, anywhere in the UK

1-1 Sessions with a Wellbeing Practitioner

We offer confidential counselling support to adults, children, young people and families in the UK who have a condition, mark or scar that affects their appearance. We run a specific service for children in Yorkshire and the Humber – find out more about this service.

Your practitioner will talk with you about your appearance-related concerns and help you to deal with the issues and worries you have when coping with the impact of a visible difference. These conversations will happen via telephone or video call – whichever you feel most comfortable with. This may help you to:

  • cope with your feelings better, talk things through and explore options;
  • build your self-esteem, grow in confidence and feel more positive;
  • cope with other people’s reactions by discussing techniques to handle everyday situations like staring, questions and comments;
  • reach your aims in every day life, such as feeling comfortable socialising, going to work, attending school or developing relationships;
  • find out more about your condition and treatment options.

You might have one or two sessions or perhaps more, up to 12 sessions.  This will be discussed and agreed with your practitioner as you go along.  Available face-to-face in central London or Sheffield (children and parents from Yorkshire and the Humber), by telephone or via Skype
