About me - The Wardrobe Provocateur

In my 20’s I discovered my love of fashion and clothing,  helping to style my family and friends with outfits, make-up and hair. I was often found browsing the fashion magazines or watching Trinny & Susannah, who were my styling heroes at the time, I have since acquired many more style heroes.

After spending time working in my family’s business,where I acquired my business acumen, I then ventured into the retail fashion world working up & down the country, expanding my experience, retail and management skills along the way.

However, in the throws of enjoying a hugely successful career, I was about to face my very own major personal challenge, an accident that left me having to learn how to walk again. I didn't know it at the time but this was going to be a catalyst in setting up my own styling coaching consultancy™.

During my rehabilitation, which was a very long process, I set about adding to my portfolio of experience and knowledge by becoming a qualified Life Coach. I had experienced life coaching first hand and just loved the concept. I made the decision that’s what I wanted to do; help others to become who they wanted to be through the same process. However, I still wanted to incorporate my love of fashion and style, so I trained with the top International Style Coaching Institute™, where I was awarded Honours and success award, I also trained in holistic therapies. What drew me to Style Coaching™ was that it wasn’t just about the clothing you wear, it was about your self-journey.That appealed to me. 

I made a commitment to share this knowledge by setting up my own style coaching™ business, which was to become The Wardrobe Provocateur and became an accredited member of the International Style Coaching Federation™. During my studies it was often remarked upon that I had a natural talent and eye for style and fashion, which I share with all my clients to this day. 

What makes me the happiest is working with real everyday women and men who desire change in their lives, appearance, negative self- image and beliefs, from busy mums stuck in a style rut, trying to juggle kids and life, to small business professionals who want to improve their personal brand by increasing their impact and visibility. I love it all and I'm lucky enough to be able to follow my passion every single day.
