Up until now, there no one has been specialising in a holistic approach to hair loss. Esteem Consultancy is here to fill that gap and provide hair loss management, support and advice for all aspects of the condition. Audrey Ball, Founder of Esteem


Step 2 - Impact & Symptoms

The impact of hair loss is often underestimated. Whether your condition is temporary or permanent, caused by cancer treatment or as a result of a disease like alopecia, hair loss is a life-changing experience.

There is a lot to deal with, particularly if you are coping with another, perhaps very serious illness of which hair loss is just a symptom, or if you have a hair loss condition with no prospect of recovery.

Finding the right support and professional help in these circumstances can be challenging. Your GP and consultants will guide you medically. Specific charities and self-help groups can offer additonal guidance, while a host of private companies sell wigs and other hair replacement solutions or treatments.

The fact is that there are many options, some of which are costly or unrewarding, or can help only a small number of users. 

Working your way through all this can be a minefield. I have spent years finding the right hair system, learning about how best to overcome skin and cosmetic challenges, while just keeping myself together day to day. Up until now, there hasn’t been anyone specialising in a holistic approach to hair loss. But Esteem Consultancy is here to fill that gap and provide hair loss management, support and advice for all aspects of the condition.

Causes of Hair Loss: alopecia, chemotherapy hair loss, radiotherapy hair loss, Lupus, telogen effluvium, female pattern hair loss, trichotillomania, frontal fibrosing alopecia, hair loss post pregnancy, nutritional conditions, thyroid disease.
