Louise's link with alopecia:
Louise has had alopecia for over three years and currently has alopecia areata.From Louise:
"I'm a busy working mum who is married with 3 beautiful children. I love
being outdoors and taking my Labrador for long country walks to unwind.
I was diagnosed with Alopecia back in 2013 and after a bumpy start am
embracing the challenges it brings.
I'm hoping our group will offer those in need a much needed supportive
ear and for those more comfortable with their Alopecia a chance to meet
up with people for a good chat over a decent brew."Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
main role of support group leads is to facilitate, and answer questions
about, the group meetings. Some may offer additional support and you
can see what is on offer from Louise below:
- Louise has her
telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a listening ear via
telephone call if someone phones (evenings between 6pm and 9pm).
- Louise is happy to receive support questions from those in her local area and
will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and
experiences. Please be aware that any questions Louise is unable to
answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
note that all of our support group leads are volunteers and do this in
their spare time. As such please allow up to a week for replies to
emails. The majority of group leads are not trained health
professionals and will be helping from the standpoint of being someone
who is affected by alopecia themselves and wanting to reach out and help
