I started my journey in hairdressing, where very early on in my career I was fortunate enough to work alongside an extremely talented stylist who was also hugely knowledgeable when it came to hair and scalp health. It was then that my interest in Trichology was sparked. After many years of seeing people struggle with hair and scalp problems in my day- to- day work, I realised that there was nowhere for them to get help. I really wanted to help them get the answers, support and treatments they needed.
I set up the Katrina Horman Trichology Clinic in 2019 after graduating from the Institute of Trichologists with whom I am now an associate member. I continue to attend regular seminars and events to ensure I keep up to date with the very latest research developments and treatments.
To find out more about the Institute of Trichologists and view the code of ethics that all members are required to adhere to you can visit their website here.
I am married and blessed with two children, so life is pretty busy. When I’m not working in the clinic or running around after my family, I try to take some me time by going to the gym and walking. I love cooking, coffee and catching up with friends.
I really look forward to helping you.
The initial consultation is very thorough and usually takes between 1 – 1.5 hrs. I will take the time to really listen to your concerns, discuss your health, lifestyle, nutrition, family history and hair care regime. I will carry out a gentle but in-depth examination of your hair and scalp, including the use of a digital trichoscope to assist me in arriving at a differential diagnosis. A treatment plan is then discussed, along with any referral that maybe needed such as to your GP, or other professionals like dermatologists, nutritionist. Sometimes I require blood tests to assist with my diagnosis.
I will always explain everything to you clearly and answer any questions that you may have. I often provide you with information leaflets to take home. After the consultation I will write to you summarising all that we have discussed, including any recommended treatment plans. I am always happy to answer any questions that may arise following your initial consultation. Should you embark on a treatment plan I recommend having a follow up consultation 3 – 4 months after your initial consultation, to monitor treatment effectiveness.
When it comes to hair and scalp problems there is no “one fits all” solution. Any advice or treatment plan is tailored specifically to you as an individual. There is no hard selling, or miracle cures on offer, just ethical, honest, reliable advice that you can trust.
All consultations are carried out in a private, comfortable setting at the Katrina Horman Trichology Clinic in St Helier. The consultation room is on the 1st floor and currently there is no lift access. Should you require disabled access please contact me directly.
I started seeing Katrina in July 2020 to see if she could help with the severe damage that had been caused to my hair (or lack of hair) through cancer treatment. Katrina was so empathetic, professional and helpful she immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. She suggested I use an appropriate ointment twice daily along with treatments with her at her clinic. The improvement, so far, is amazing - I am absolutely over the moon. I wish I could fast forward another six months to see what my hair will look like then! I am so pleased to have found Katrina and have no hesitations in recommending Katrina to anyone who had problems with their hair.
Katrina is an excellent trichologist. She is warm, kind, approachable, knowledgeable, informative and generous with her time and an expertise. She has also chatted with my hairdresser to advise her reference my scalp treatments and condition, so that I get the best and healthiest outcomes in the treatments that my hairdresser offer. Katrina has always got the shampoos and conditioners I need in an efficient way, and that Katrina explains to me how they work verbally and also with a detailed written breakdown on the use of the treatments. She has also advised me on what to do when my child has a dry scalp and was very sweet and caring towards my child. Katrina has made a big difference to my scalp condition she has really helped me deal with it Physically and emotionally. I would recommend anyone to go to see Katrina for any scalp conditions.
“Katrina is a friendly yet professional face, who exudes knowledge and reassurance in abundance. She is very thorough and professional in everything she does, and she is always mindful and sensitive to what you might be feeling. She has helped me enormously and I would recommend her brilliant, discreet services to anybody. Her trichology knowledge is impressive and she is very reliable on the communication front. Thank you Katrina!”
