Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you work?

I offer friendly, totally non-judgemental and highly effective colour, style and image consultancy services in Eastbourne and throughout East Sussex.  However, If you live further afield, that’s no problem but I may have to charge you for travel time.  The best thing is to contact me to find out more.

Please tell me that you’re not going to tell me what to wear (like that BBC programme)?

No, not at all, I promise. That’s just not my style of working. I’ll suggest that you try something different or new, but I’m not in the least bit prescriptive.

My job is to encourage you to give yourself permission to move away from colours or styles that may not be doing you justice. In fact, it’s all about adding to what you already have, to build and enhance your look.

I can never find anything to suit me. How can I know that you can?

I trained with a great company called Colourflair, and I’m a fully accredited personal image consultant. Also, my in-depth training with Arbonne helps me to know and understand how best to make a woman look and feel fantastic from the inside out.

But it’s more than that: Most importantly, I feel that I’ve helped dozens of women of all ages and sizes to gain new freedom and confidence in their style choices. I’m experienced enough to understand almost instinctively what will suit your particular personality, lifestyle and body issues. I can’t do your accounts, or fix your car but I can make you look great.

I’d like to have a wardrobe detox but I’m embarrassed to show you what I have

Don’t be. Really, don’t be. There’s nothing I’ve not seen and believe me, I too have experienced the nothing-to-wear over stuffed wardrobe syndrome. And yes, I have also made mistakes. Expensive ones, actually.

Actually, I have no doubt that many items on your wardrobe are just right for you. I’ll just help you to sort and edit to make every single thing your go-to piece.

Why is this a good idea? Surely clothes and make-up are trivial?

In the nicest way, I strongly disagree. There is nothing shallow or irrelevant about looking good, if it makes you feel good.  First and foremost, my services enable and empower my clients to embrace a new lifestyle or a change in circumstances with total confidence.

I’m heavier than I’d like to be. Should I wait until I’ve lost weight and contact you then?

Nooooo. Now is the time to get in touch.

Colour, style and image consultancy is about helping you to make the most of your figure now, not least with affordable pieces that will make you look great as you drop the pounds (if that’s what you want to do). We’ll find some killer accessories to rock your look and maybe even look at a few new make-up products for you.

What are the benefits of colour, style and image consultancy services?

Regrettably, many women simply don’t feel at their best on a daily basis. Coupled with busy home commitments, picking out an outfit for work every day isn’t always easy.  My services can help you to increase your confidence and quite honestly, start to feel good: about your figure, your style, the colours and fabrics you are wearing.  You deserve the best.

Additionally, you are going to save money.  Without a doubt, spending money on clothes you rarely wear is not good for your soul – or your bank balance.  That perfect top, in a colour and style that looks fantastic on you will take the “cost per wear” calculations down to mere pennies!
