Many of us already own great pieces, but feel like we’re not sure how to best style them and make the most out of what we have.

3. What can I expect?
For each client the experience is completely different, depending on your needs and where you need support. What I can promise you is that I will listen to you, take the time to understand you as a person and what it is you want to achieve, and create an experience that has been specifically designed for you. I don’t take a one size fits all approach. Instead I learn about you as an individual and work with you to create the support that you need to take your confidence in your style to the next level.

I offer half and full day bookings for all of my services. My fees start at £250 per hour, and I take payment in advance to secure your booking.
5. What information/input do you require from me?
When you book your appointment please include your full contact details, including your name, address, phone number and email address. I will also send you a client questionnaire to complete in advance of your appointment, so that I can fully understand your needs and what you want to achieve, to ensure you make the most out of the time that we spend together. If you’re not too sure on how to answer the questions, or what it is that you want to achieve, not to worry. I’ll help you work it out, and am good at picking up signals and interpreting conversation to gain a full understanding of where you’re at and where you want to be.
6. Who do you work with/who is your typical client?
There’s no ‘typical’ client for me. I work with men and women of all ages, at different points in their lives, with different expectations and ambitions. I also work with people of all different sizes, with different budgets, so don’t worry about how much you have to spend, or where you like to shop. It’s my job to create a service that works for you as an individual, and it’s always my aim to help you as much as I possibly can.
7. Why should I hire a personal shopping stylist?
There are loads of reasons why now might be the right time for you to hire a personal shopping stylist. It might be a case of wanting to change your career, or perhaps you’ve had a recent lifestyle change, such as becoming a parent, starting a new job, or just entering a new phase of your life. You may have lost or gained weight, or perhaps you’re struggling to work out how to dress for your age group, or for a new job. It might be that you never really felt confident about your style choices, or maybe feel like you never found your own ‘style’ at all. Whatever the reason, I can make dressing for success simple. It’s my job to help you reconnect with yourself, and find your very best style, for your lifestyle, ambitions and yourself as an individual.
