Support

How can we help?

We aim to give one to one support; we will listen and direct you to the most appropriate source of information to answer your questions.

We appreciate that not all the worries or confusion can be helped by clinicians. Often things like work, family or the ability to pay the mortgage are uppermost in our minds when we are given bad news. It can help to talk to someone in confidence, who has experienced melanoma first hand. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.

Telephone: 07738231260 (Available 8am-11pm, outwith these times please leave a message or email to the address below and we will return your call/email as soon as possible)

At MASScot, we have been offering hypnotherapy and other therapies as a complementary service since 2009.
There is a lot of misinformation surrounding hypnotherapy in the media, in regards to what it involves. It is not as scary or intimidating as one may think and is based in relaxation and helpful suggestions provided by the hypnotherapist.
We spoke to Amanda, in order to answer some frequently asked questions surrounding hypnotherapy, who it’s suitable for and what it can help with.

(We will refer those who require hypnotherapy to a qualified and insured therapist close to their location in order to receive the help they need, however we also have a therapy room within our office in Firhill if that is more suitable)

Our members have discovered that these therapies assist in relaxation and improve sleep, especially when worrying about diagnosis. Importantly, it greatly assists coping whilst awaiting results or investigations.


Our support and assistance is aimed at ensuring that patients are well prepared for their clinic visits as it is important to make the most of the time with the clinician. Having the confidence to ask questions and obtain answers they understand is important; we recommend bringing a list of prepared questions and attending appointments with a trusted family member.


To help us continue supporting those suffering with skin cancer, we would be grateful for any donations.
