What is a Personal Image?

The way we present ourselves, look, sound and act speaks volumes about who we are and how much we respect ourselves. Within just 30 seconds of meeting someone, we believe we know their level of competence, background and likeability within about 80 percent of accuracy. Your personal image creates a lasting impression even before you start speaking. It can take just ten seconds to ruin your image and ten years to rebuild it. Whether we like it or not, we all have a personal image, so it makes sense to take control and ensure it works for you to give you the best possible advantage in your life and relationships.

Why should I book a session with an Yvonne Gray Personal Image Designer?

There are countless ways to send the wrong messages or to mask your true values which can cause others to dismiss our doubt your abilities. However, many of these messages are unspoken and it requires the focus and skills of a trained professional to identify visual and hidden signals you are transmitting, and guide you in how to improve them. Maybe you don’t have the time to shop well or are overwhelmed by the multitude of colours, clothing styles and make-up products available. Perhaps you need to look more authoritative, creative or approachable, or an important event is coming up and you want to look and sound as professional as you feel.  The Yvonne Gray Studio specialises in Personal Image Design - methods of presenting yourself with in a similar way to that of a product, except in this case that product is YOU!


Are there sessions for Men as well as Women?

Men are just as likely to benefit from sessions as women. Often more, since so little advice of this kind is available. 





      Where do Sessions take place and what do I bring?


Sessions are typically held at your home, place of work or any venue of your choice.  If we need to hire conference rooms, charges for such are at cost.


You may wish to bring along a list of objectives or selection of pictures and cuttings that typify the look or qualities you'd like to project.  Also, one or two garments or outfits you feel especially good in and (ladies), your make-up bag.  Style sheets, Colour decks and Work books are all provided as applicable.

 I would like to book a Session / Workshop for my daughter. Is there any recommended minimum age?

 The sooner a young lady adopts skills that will last a lifetime - the better!  Personal colouring settles down at around 12 years of age, when girls are more likely to take on board and apply any professional recommendations.

I would like to purchase a gift voucher.  How long are they valid for?

Vouchers are valid for 6 months from date of purchase.

How do I arrange an appointment?

Please call or email us to advise your requirement or book a consultation.
