What Is Style Coaching?

The idea for the revolutionary holistic approach, which would ultimately be branded Style Coaching™ originated in 2004. There were many image consultants, many personal stylists, Life Coaches, NLP Practitioners etc. But no-one was focusing on the mind/body connection and this is the essence of Style Coaching™ Tracey Redmond, an accomplished Professional Stylist and NLP Practitioner, in conjunction with Gary Redmond an Accredited Life Coach, Co-Founded The Style Coaching Institute® in 2005. The Institute now operates in 75 countries and is training Style Coaches™ worldwide.

We believe; ‘What you see in the mirror, is only half the picture’.

A qualified Style Coach™ has all the technical knowledge of an image consultant, colour consultant and personal shopper, but we are also skilled in Life Coaching and NLP (neuro linguistic programming).

We start by working on your external image; colours, body shape analysis. We can then de-clutter your wardrobe (and your life…) so the only clothes you have in your wardrobe are the ones which fit and flatter you. We can go Personal Shopping and fill any obvious gaps you have in your wardrobe. Wouldn’t it be great to know you have an outfit for every occasion? But we will also talk about how confident you are in certain areas of your life and if you would like to make any changes or improvements. We’ll work together and my role is to help you achieve your innermost desires and to coach you in ways you can continue to follow for the rest of your life. The number of sessions we have will be entirely dependent upon what you want to achieve from the Style Coaching™process – that decision is yours.

I want to help you ‘be the best you can be every day’ and I want it to be fun – for both of us!

Gayle – Following our Wardrobe De-clutter session, you will be pleased to know I had a car boot sale with all the things we threw out and raised £240.00 – so I am a happy girl.  Everything in my wardrobe is now hanging in categories, T-shirts, jumpers, trousers, evening wear etc, so I feel much better and can actually find things to wear.  I have also started wearing more colours, mainly purples, but I am getting there.  You will be happy to know I bought and wore a bright red wrap-over dress to my friend’s daughter’s christening a few weeks ago and had lots of compliments – I am just amazed to have had the confidence to make such a statement.

 

I have really enjoyed the sessions we had and it has certainly made things much clearer. I now have an ‘eye’ for styles and colours I never really had before and I feel much more confident in what I wear and how I look.  I love my hair now (I am still growing it but experimenting with colours, which is fun) and I’m quite happy with how I am and look.  I am still at Weight Watchers, it is slow but steady, so all in all things are good.

 

I’m sure I will be back in contact next year for a Personal Shopping session, but in the meantime, let me have some brochures and I will put your name out there.

Christmas 2008 I was asked, “Mum, what do you want for Christmas?”  What do you buy the Girl who has everything?  I don’t have everything of course, but understand; I am difficult to buy for and have very high, exacting standards.  “I don’t want you to be offended Mum, but I thought you may like some time with a Style Coach for your Christmas present”.  What me?  The one who always gets it right, who knows what she likes and goes for it…..what could someone possibly teach me?  And – can you teach an old dog new tricks?

Then I stopped and thought about it.  Was I in a rut?  Did I assume that as I had clothed myself for the last xx number of years, I was being kind to myself?   Did I wear the right colours?  Were they the best colours for my skin tone, my hair colour etc?  So I said “Why not”.  Bring it on.  And bring it on they did.  Gayle arrived one Saturday afternoon and we sat in the kitchen over a cup of tea and she started to work her magic.

Was I making the most of myself?  Did I accessorise my clothes?  Was I wearing the right shape, the right colour?  Slowly over our sessions I came to realise improvements could be made.  The colours – I am not a beige person, never have been and never will be – but I wore beige, which made me beige.  Gayle and I worked out and then talked about the right colours for me.  Blacks, greys, fuchsia pink, reds – all good and no beige…..

I was apprehensive at our first meeting, not knowing what to expect.  I was slightly defensive too, because although I wanted to embrace the experience, I was still concerned she was there to criticise me.   This she certainly did not.  Gayle was great.  She put me at my ease, opened my eyes to things I hadn’t seen.  I am far more aware about what suits me and what doesn’t.  What colours flatter and what don’t.  It’s a confidence thing, and if someone asks you, what do you get the Girl who has everything, or even some things – a session with Gayle is a must.

It was about a month after my final session when a close friend of mine asked me for Gayle’s details.  The reason – she thought she had done a wonderful job with me and wanted to recommend her to another friend.  Then I definitely knew it had been worthwhile!

In my younger years I was much slimmer and liked to stand out from the crowd and make a personal statement.  Having slowly put on weight, my wardrobe had become overloaded with black clothing – mostly because I thought it was ‘safe’ and ‘slimming’.  My low self esteem was excruciating at times, affecting my social life.  My Style Coaching sessions with Gayle included tips on how to dress for my shape, colour therapy, and how to make the best of what I had. We discussed grooming and make-up too, which was really good fun. This was followed by a wardrobe de-clutter and then personal shopping, during which we looked for specific items which would fill the gaps and were versatile enough to use in different combinations. Gayle helped me to focus on colour, something I hadn’t done for a very long time.

 

It was my workplace where the changes were most noticeable. I started to wear more colour and lovely accessories, which made all the difference. Lots of people started to comment on how good I was looking and the positive feedback was flattering and helped to boost my confidence.

 

It has now been over a year since my Style Coaching.  I have lost weight and I’m excited about shopping for clothes again. In fact clothes, shoes, handbags, make up and jewellery.  It feels good to have my confidence back and I am having the time of my life socially. I have worked very hard to get to this good place but it was Gayle’s advice and support that started me on my journey and I am very grateful for all her help.  I would not hesitate in recommending Gayle to anyone who needs help with styling, grooming and lifestyle changes – she is a lovely lady, very understanding and she knows her stuff!”

Dear Ladies! I have had my first shopping trip, with beautiful Gayle. We started from me having make-up done at one of the stands in Debenhams/Chelmsford. That was a great start! Afterwards we walked around Debenhams, picking and choosing what might look good. And guess what? She was amazing! I felt comfortable all the time, Gayle was like a best friend. I did notice other women looking with jealousy. G is a great Style Coach! Honest, but sensitive. I got home with bags of new clothes and a new attitude! Ladies! G-Style Coaching is the way to go!

Gayle gave a fantastic Style Coaching Party at my home on Friday evening! I invited a number of friends, asking them to bring a bottle, and stocked up on nibbles. Gayle arrived laden with gorgeous clothes, fabulous shoes, information and a well-planned itinerary. Gayle explained how style coaching is a holistic experience in that she will deal with mindset and emotional wellbeing before looking at how you look. We then learnt about colours and the difference wearing the right colours for you can make. Next came body shape, when Gayle explained the 5 main shapes and how to dress to flatter each one. It’s all about balancing! She demonstrated using several outfits and accessories displayed on her trusted mannequin, “Lydia”. Gayle gave an interesting, professional but fun presentation and the evening was a great success. Thank you Gayle! Xx

About Me

A love of fashion from a very early age, led me into a modelling career in my early twenties.  I attended a traditional Modelling Academy; we were taught the importance of posture (which included walking up and down stairs with books on our heads…) how to catwalk model, hair and make-up techniques and good grooming tips!  It was a lot of fun and I continued to model until my imminent baby daughter made her presence felt on my body -straight away in my pregnancy I lost my waistline!  I returned to modelling briefly when she was 6 months old, which later led me into Sales, Marketing and Business Development.  This became a very successful career for me for over 20 years. But something was missing from my life……  Then in 2007, I spotted an interesting advertisement in Psychologies Magazine – ‘Train to be a Style Coach™’. I loved their concept of working with people on their inner and outer images and the prospect of one-to-one working and being able to potentially make a difference to an individuals’ life, sounded so rewarding.

 

I qualified in 2008 and subsequently became an Accredited Member of the IASC (International Association of Style Coaches).  This allows me to stay up to date with new trends and the most effective ways of working.  It also makes me part of a worldwide forum group who are so incredibly supportive.

Much importance is placed upon work/life balance, but modern day pressures and stresses can make this hard to achieve. Well intentioned as we all are, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of saying yes to everything, juggling multiple roles and trying to have it all. Style Coaching ™ will provide an antidote. It forces you to stop, or at least pause and consider your life, both in terms of how you look and how you feel. What makes you happy, what doesn’t? You might love to make some changes or improvements, but where and how do you start? We are all creatures of habit and lifelong beliefs, but habits can be changed, as can beliefs. Start your new way of thinking, feeling and looking today…..

Ruffles are BIG - Literally

Ruffles are big – literally! But like any fashion trend, be careful what the style is doing to your body shape. Look at the direction of the ruffles; are they horizontal, or vertical? Which part of your body are they drawing attention to and is it a part of your body you want to highlight? Ruffles make a statement, so make sure they’re making the right statement for you. I’ve …
