Our founder, Kate, set up the clinic to treat hair and scalp conditions with a medical, evidence-based approach that focuses on prioritising each individual's health and wellbeing.
Ysabelle Caitlin Holden (Kate for short!) is a member of the Institute of Trichologists. She has first-hand experience of hair loss, having managed Trichotillomania since she was a teenager. Kate is also a qualified hairdresser and is currently studying for an MSc in nutrition to give her patients a holistic approach to their hair and scalp conditions.
We know how hair loss and scalp conditions often really affect self-esteem and confidence. Many of our patients come to us to find their way forward, after years of frustration trying to seek treatment. We provide our patients warm and open environment that allows them space to feel heard and to understand their condition.
Our clinic offers diagnosis of hair and scalp conditions, therapeutic recommendations and treatments, and nutrition advice. When needed, we offer referrals to appropriate medical specialists, diagnostic testing, and support throughout further referrals and treatment.
