Individual Mentoring / Business Style Coaching Services
Each week Caitlin is contacted by individuals seeking to gain information and insight into working in the Personal Styling profession. They may have completed a Personal Styling course or undertaken an online course of a similar nature, however are still stuck when it comes to executing all they have learned and putting their career plan into action.
These enquires prompted Caitlin to offer individual mentoring and business coaching as part of her service offering.
Caitlin is a certified workplace trainer with 10 years experience both lecturing and working closely alongside students and possesses a wealth of experience in both the Fashion and Image Consulting industries. She has worked as a Personal Stylist and Image Consultant for nearly 15 years and holds an impressive database of regular clients who keep her in business. Caitlin attributes effective networking and strong relationships to her success.
So how is this different to all the Personal Styling courses out there?
There are loads of Personal Styling courses out there. Caitlin does not run a course nor offer an accreditation. She works ‘one on one’ with individuals on developing the skills and knowledge required to run their own consultancy as a Stylist or Image Consultant.
Sessions can be taken hourly or packed over a 3 month period which offers follow up questions and continual support. Topics do not follow a generic module rather they are tailored to the individuals specific needs and level of advancement so you are not locked in and have the option to decide how much time you need. Quite often it might just be a 2 hour brainstorming session that does the job. Sessions can be completed out in the field, in your home or an office environment or even a beachside café.

In all the internship's and mentors I've had, Caitlin was the only one who really took the time and effort to guide me through the industry and finding my place in it.
Her extensive knowledge and experience really helped me get to where I am today. A lot of people tend to take advantage of the fact that they have someone interning for them without pay, but not Caitlin. Caitlin always made sure everything I was doing had a purpose in what I needed to make it into the industry and always had my best interest at heart. I currently work as a Stylist at Network Nine and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her extensive support and guidance as my mentor.
I know I can still call her if I am ever stuck or need advice for anything to do with the industry or my job, I couldn’t recommend her highly enough as a mentor for anyone lucky enough to have her.
