I'm thrive on helping women to feel confident through enhancing the way they look, which can be through significant change or subtle refinement.

What I do As an Image Consultant, I am a strategic stylist who has studied the science of styling and creating outfits to enhance an individual's appearance. I take into account individual characteristics, such as style personality, body shape and proportions. I apply colour theory to our assessment processes to determine what colours suit clients the best, based on their complexion, eyes and hair. I use specifically designed tools and strategies to ensure that colour assessments are accurate and that a colour palette reflects not only the individual's physical characteristics, but also their personality, so human and colour psychology is central to what I do. Uniquely, I have trained in coaching and education, which further enhances my services.

Being an independent consultant provides me with the freedom to be more creative and less prescriptive in my consultations, so no two sessions are the same - and they shouldn't be. Each client presents their own set of individual characteristics, e.g. people learn and behave in different ways, and therefore respond to advice and guidance in a variety of ways too, so a 'one size fits all' approach just doesn't work. I take time to really ensure that you grasp information and how it can be used to enhance your look, Also, as an independent consultant you can rest assured that the information I offer is impartial and therefore non-bias towards any particular brand or product.
The misconception of having to be rich to see a personal stylist couldn't be further from the truth. It's now very affordable and convenient. You can access my face-to-face services delivered via my studio in Newbury, or my new online services in the security and comfort of your home. In exceptional cases, when mobility and access is difficult, I offer a mobile service too.
From the moment a client engages with me, whether for colour analysis or personal styling, collectively we begin to create their very own image portfolio. By the time a client has engaged in my full services (this is optional and can be done over a period of time), they will have in place their personal image portfolio, which they can use for the rest of their life to self manage their look
If you're looking at this page, it's highly likely you are looking for change. This will be one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. It will change the way people view you but most of all, it will change the way you view yourself. It's the perfect way to feel happy and boost your confidence.
