About Cotswold Trichology
Trichologist Sally-Ann Tarver MIT.FTTS –
Education and Professional Bodies
I qualified as a Trichologist in 1997 following three years study with The Institute of Trichologists in London. Following this I sought a suitable premises to open a Trichology clinic in Evesham, Worcestershire – my hometown and have been there since.
I became a full member of the Institute of Trichologists (MIT) in 2001 following three years in full time practice. The letters MIT denotes one who is experienced and has been mentored for some years by a senior Trichologist. I was very fortunate to have had some outstandingly knowledgable mentors.
In 2000 I was awarded a Licentiateship of the Trichological Society (LTTS) and became a member of the Governing Council some years later. In 2008 I was elected President and very proudly served 2008-2010. Later in 2014 I was consequently awarded a Fellowship (FTTS) for outstanding services to the Society.
How I Became Interested in Trichology
My interest inTrichology began after I was involved in a road traffic collision in 1991. The accident trauma resulted in acute hair loss (acute Telogen Effluvium) but also an interest in Trichology. I realised there were many people suffering from hair loss but at that timer no qualified Trichologist within five counties. I believe my personal hair loss experience allows me greater empathy for patients on a personal level.
Trichology on Harley Street
For two years I practiced in the world renowned Harley Street, London as well as my main Evesham clinic. This was an enjoyable and eye opening experience. However, I found due to a lack of treatment facilities, I was unable to offer the same level of service as at the Evesham Trichology Practice.
When people visit Harley Street to consult a Trichologist or any other practitioner, they do so in expectation of the best. I actually felt like I was ‘making do’ rather than ‘being the best’. As a result I stopped offering Harley St appointments. My primary focus above all is to offer good service and facilities to my patients rather than a glossy address on a business card.
I have worked with numerous brands on projects. Some of this work includes product design, education, marketing and distribution for brands such as Dyson, Mira, Forever Living Products, Johnson & Johnson, Regaine and of course Theradome.
I am happy to share my knowledge with Journalists for media articles. consequently I give interviews about hair loss and scalp problems on a weekly basis. I have been invited to appear on TV twice (This Morning & The Vanessa Show) and regularly speak on local BBC Radio stations

About Cotswold Trichology – The Clinic
Situated close to the River Avon in Evesham it is purpose designed and elegantly decorated. I do not offer appointments in any other location. The clinic is busy and consequently I have no need to travel.
The main consulting room, reception, treatment and wig fitting room are on the ground floor and have wheelchair (and pushchair access) throughout however with the exception of the cloakroom facilities. On the first floor, a further consulting room used by visiting experts and additionally our new Scalp Micropigmentation treatment room.
There is parking close by, free of charge along Waterside and further pay and display car parks within a few minutes walk. Please don’t chance parking on the double yellow lines on Port Street because you won’t be missed by our lovely traffic wardens!
Children and babies can be brought to the clinic if necessary. Because we are parents ourselves we understand how hard it can be to make appointments. As parents we have also learned the ability to block out noise from children and continue having a conversation! For very young ones, please bring snacks and toys to entertain. For older children, Wi-Fi codes can be provided for phones and tablets.
