POCKETWATCH AND MONOCLE
I am a creative stylist and Style Coach™ and I help survivors of trauma up-level their confidence through personal style.
Clothing is my absolute passion and I find it easy to speak through my outfits.
It started with 8 year old me, giggling with my best friend whilst cutting holes in the crotches of our 90s flared denim jeans and turning them into bell sleeve crop tops..
Cutting the toes off long stripy socks to make rainbow fingerless gloves that stretch all the way up your arms.
Then moving onto ripping and distressing skinny jeans and refusing to wear them with anything but tutu skirts.
Neon coloured tights with spiderweb print matched with blue fairy wings and crazy coloured makeup..
Majorly baggy corduroy trousers as wide as an elephant and so tattered and ripped along the bottom that they had to be prised from my hands and thrown in the bin!
Always looking for something new, something more wacky and wild than the last....
If someone tells me that they don't like something ive picked up in a shop, it makes me want to buy it even more!
If something is 'old, quirky or too 1980s, then i'm there and i want it all. It's just me, being me!
And I encourage you to be brave...
I encourage you to be you...
Being yourself is the best thing you can ever be!
As a Style Coach™, I have been trained to advice people on how to enhance their unique figure so they can dress with confidence and style.
In addition to my personal styling skills, I have also received training in communication and rapport skills, body language and non-verbal communication as well as a vast range of life coaching and NLP skills.
I believe that there is a critical connection between how we present ourselves on the outside and how we feel about ourselves on the inside.
Anyone can have an external makeover, however, very often people revert back to their old ways, because nothing has changed on the inside. Their views on themselves have remained the same.
Style Coaching™ differs from 'Image Consultancy' in many ways, but one thing to understand about our coaching relationship is that I'm not here to lecture you about what you should do with your life, and I won't always have answers and solutions to your challenges. My role is to help you access your own inner wisdom because I believe that you alone are the expert on you!
I am passionate about clothing. I like to think outside the box, when it comes to styling and have a lot of fun with it. I am equally passionate about the impact fast fashion is having on our planet. Where ever possible, I like to include these ethics into my Style Coaching.
I have a good eye for all things quirky and different, including clashing prints, bold colours and monochrome.
