Let me introduce myself!
My name is Catherine Jackson. I’m a mum of 2 and I live in County Down, Northern Ireland. At the beginning of the pandemic, I took the plunge and trained as a Personal Stylist and a Colour Consultant. I love clothes and style and feel passionate about colour and how this can impact not only appearance but also emotional wellbeing. But the ability to empower women, boost confidence and alleviate the stress of dressing everyday is primarily why I trained as a Stylist.
‘Image and style is an important element of self-care’
I have worked in the NHS for the last 13 years and before that I was a teacher. Helping, guiding and supporting others gives me the greatest joy and satisfaction. I recognise that in a world where there is war, poverty and an alarmingly high rate of poor mental health, that style and clothes can seem in some way indulgent and frivolous. But to me, image and style is an important element of self-care. It’s often the first thing to deteriorate when someone feels stressed, anxious or over-whelmed. And without doubt, this decline often leads to feelings of low self-esteem and frustration.
I remember how ‘lost’ I felt after having my first child. I didn’t know how to dress for this new life and I didn’t know how to create a look that was stylish but practical too!
Which is why I see my role as a Stylist and Colour Consultant as so important. With empathy and a non judgemental approach I can empower you with the skills to dress confidently. Whether you are a stay-at-home-mum, a business leader, recently retired or feeling stuck in a rut, I can give you the knowledge and know-how to dress your shape and discover your signature style. It’s normal for this to change throughout the course of our lives. Illness, weight change, becoming a mum/carer, change in role and profession can often lead to confusion about how to dress and what to wear. I’ve been there myself. I remember how ‘lost’ I felt after having my first child. I didn’t know how to dress for this new life and I didn’t know how to create a look that was stylish but practical too! Change can be difficult, but moving forward, updating your look and investing in yourself will ensure that you don’t get ‘stuck’ in that style rut!
