David Garside, Senior Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner for RDaSH said: “We were delighted to welcome Changing Faces to the Talking Shop.

“They provided excellent advice and training for us when we set up our psychological therapy service in Doncaster for people affected by disfigurement.

“This event gave them an opportunity to showcase the full range of practical advice, emotional support and social skills training and techniques they offer people of all ages to improve their self- esteem and confidence, which make everyday situations like staring, questions and comments easier to handle.”

Anyone who has a visible difference or supports someone who has a visible difference – including families, friends or health and social care professionals –  can find out more about the support available locally, by visiting the Talking Shop at 63 Hall Gate in Doncaster’s town centre, or ringing (01302) 565650.
