We all deserve to feel good no matter how young or old we are, how tall, small, broad or thin we are, what we do for a living, how much money we do or don’t have, or what makes us get up and go! We’re all very different, thankfully, but I really believe that everyone has the right to feel good.
Looking good, and having the confidence that comes with knowing that you look your best, plays a major part in helping you achieve this. That’s what I took away from an image consultation I enjoyed some 20+ years ago now. At the time, I was pursuing a career in Marketing and spent most of my time ‘suited and booted’ in an office. I received so many compliments on the way I looked after my consultation, and a huge boost to my self confidence, that I literally enthused non-stop to my family and friends thereafter!
When I had the opportunity to change career paths after having my two children, I had no hesitation as to what I wanted to do. I wanted to help people to get that same confident feeling and to take Marketing to a more personal level, helping people to market their unique ‘personal brand’. I completed extensive training with Europe’s leading image consultancy, (in colour analysis, personal styling, make-up, men’s image, and corporate image services), and I haven’t looked back since. That was over thirteen years ago.
I now spend my days helping other people develop a positive and confident image that’s really ‘them’. I’m a multiple award-winning consultant and member of the Federation of Image Professionals, but collecting accolades is not why I do what I do. It’s seeing the difference that it makes to people that gives me the greatest satisfaction. So whether I’m delivering Personal Branding training courses in organisations or seeing clients on a one-to-one basis at their homes or in my studio, I just love to help people express what’s on the inside on the outside.
I also enjoy giving back, so regularly volunteer for the fabulous Look Good, Feel Better charity offering confidence-boosting make-up workshops for those going through cancer treatments. I also volunteer at Esteem Ahead, part of The Lighthouse charity, running women’s image workshops to boost confidence and self esteem and help them back into the world of work.
I’m a really friendly, warm person and enjoy creating a fun and informal atmosphere in my studio where you will feel completely relaxed. (If you’re anything like me, it’s not often that you get a bit of ‘me time’, after all!). I’ve helped thousands of people from all walks of life to look good and feel good and project a confident, credible personal image, so why not see what a difference it can make to you too … you deserve it!
I’m based in Farnham, on the Surrey Hampshire border and help clients based locally in Farnham, Fleet, Guildford, Haselmere, Camberley, Alton etc, as well as in locations across the UK. I see clients either in my Studio, in their home or in their places of work.
