We offer

  • brief and confidential advice and information
  • information about Changing Faces and the services we offer
  • the opportunity to have sessions with a Changing Faces Practitioner
  • information about other organisations.

Changing Faces Practitioners provide confidential emotional support, advice and information.  They can help you

  • find out more about your condition and treatments
  • develop a more positive attitude
  • cope with your feelings better, by giving you time to talk things through and supporting you to grow in confidence
  • learn about others’ experiences and exchange information, thoughts and ideas
  • manage other people’s reactions by discussing techniques to handle everyday situations like staring, questions and comments.

Your contact with a Changing Faces Practitioner might be a one-off session, or may be more ongoing (two to six sessions, perhaps more) – it depends on what you want and what you need.

Sessions can be held

  • face-to-face at one of our centres, based in London or Sheffield (covering Yorkshire and The Humber)
  • over the phone or via Skype
  • by email

If you are under 18 years old, we may need to get in touch with your parents / carers first before receiving our support or skin camouflage services, but we would discuss this with you first.
