Look Good Feel Better



Look Good Feel Better  

The Look Good Feel Better programme aims to provide positive and practical support women to help them cope with the side effects of cancer treatment.LGFB 6 Nov 17 DMH

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be devastating and the added stress of changes in physical appearance as a result of treatment can be demoralising and difficult to cope with, for example hair loss caused by some chemotherapy drugs.

Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing of women undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer.

The Look Good Feel Better Workshops together small groups of women in a relaxed and uplifting environment.  The two hour classes are free of charge and are led by volunteer beauty professionals who teach vital skincare and make up techniques to help improve confidence and appearance.  The groups are very informative but most of all, they are fun, interactive and supportive.


Our Look Good Feel Better Workshops will be held once a month at Bishop Auckland HospitalLook Good Feel Better Helen and Tina. All of the sessions will take place from 11am - 1pm, unless otherwise stated.

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'
