Here at the Style Coaching Institute® we don’t just care about the image you see reflected back when you look in the mirror. We care about how you picture and perceive yourself in your mind too.
We’re all familiar with the term “body image”, but what does it really mean?
Body image encompasses:
* Your beliefs about your appearance and how you look in the mirror (these beliefs are formed by your life experiences, memories, how you perceive images in the media, and how your mind generalises information as it comes into your awareness)
* How you feel about your physical body (aspects such as your height, body shape, weight, the colour of your skin, the size of breasts, the shape of your nose, etc.)
* Your awareness of how you control your body as you move, your posture, the way you sense your physical body, whether you feel strong and able-bodied (for example, how you feel ‘in’ your physical body, not just ‘about’ your body)
When you have a healthy and positive body image it means that, generally, you feel comfortable and happy in your your own skin.
Body image challenges can affect all of us, no matter our size, shape, weight, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or skin colour. Whether it is positive or negative, we all have a body image. We all have feelings about the way we look and how our appearance is perceived by others. It is normal to feel good about certain aspects of your appearance, and not quite as good about other aspects.
Whether they are consciously aware of it or not, a person’s body image affects every aspect of their life. It can sometimes be difficult to understand all of the feelings we have about our bodies and ourselves, but Style Coaching™ helps people to develop a healthier and more empowering body image. This has a knock-on positive impact on every aspect of people’s lives, affecting things like their relationships, their careers, their aspirations and their general life satisfaction.
If you believe in the positive power of appearance and the holistic impact it can have, then you are likely to enjoy learning more about Style Coaching™.
The Style Coaching Institute® was founded 11 years ago to revolutionise the world of image consultancy and personal styling. Through our career development courses, we have trained over 1200 people in 75 countries to become professional Style Coaches™ and have a career helping others to look and feel their best. We combine topics such as personal stylist training, colour analysis, fashion styling, personal shopping, and wardrobe styling, with self-development topics such as life coach training, positive body image coaching, self-image psychology and even personal branding. Our aim is to help people to discover how to use their appearance as a tool for feeling better about themselves, and then using their appearance as a non-verbal method of communication. Some of the questions we ask are, “Who am I? How do I want to feel? What do I want to express?” The answers are often life changing.
