Appearance is a powerful means of non-verbal communication.

“An individual’s self concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behaviour; the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change, the choice of friends, mates and careers. It is no exaggeration to say that a strong, positive self image is the best possible preparation for success in life”. Dr. Joyce Brothers

55% of the way we judge a person is by their outward apearance and clothing, 38% by how they present themselves - body language, eye contact, confidence - and only 7% by what they say! Most people haven't got time to think about what their outward appearance communicates to others. They have their style and stick to it. The older they get the more out of touch they seem. Yet inside, most feel no different from the day they left school. Changing Gear Image Consultants can put you back in touch.

You will also be able to benefit personally, and in a quality way, from Tessa's 30 years of expertise in the fashion world. If you are needing specific help, re personal looks or wardrobe problems it can be directly managed, no generalisations here, also, if you're a person 'of a certain age' and needing a confidence boost, Tessa really understands having been there herself!
