Holistic Training

The Academy of Professional Image  Difference

The Academy of Professional Image’s training programs are  developed with the whole client in mind.

  • We do not measure or weigh clients, but teach you how to analyse body shapes with your eyes and other simple, non-invasive techniques. Because you learn to use your eyes, you’re able to be mobile, don’t need a computer and therefore don’t need the added cost of a studio.
  • We believe that understanding the clients goals, needs and preferred outcomes is imperative and take a holistic approach, the client’s image is an expression of who they are on the inside, not just which hemlines or necklines work best for them.
  • We teach you how to teach your client how to break the rules.
  • We show you how to understand the client’s personality and how that must be expressed through the styles of clothes they choose.
  • We take a very ‘hands on’ approach during the training, it’s not just book learning but practical exercises and experiences to ensure you feel confident to work with clients immediately. We provide you with a range of tools to use with your clients, but don’t lock you into expensive ongoing fees or service agreements, you only pay for what you use.
  • Your brand—your image tools with your business image, your logo, your slogan and details, not ours.
  • This course has been certified internationally by the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) for CEUs.
