Love your Look, Love your Life!

It’s time you made the changes you know you deserve

Are You Frustrated?


Are you standing at the edge of an abyss peering into the darkness below thinking “Here comes yet another LIFE CHANGING EVENT ready to make me jump!”? You’ve already been through so many; graduation, university, starting a career, marriage, children, friend’s divorces, your divorce, career changes….OMG, the list goes on and on. Everything used to fit and looked good on you! Was it because you were 18? Things just aren’t the same. How can they be? No matter what stage you’ve been at in life, there’s always been one constant. The thought, the knowing that, “If I look good, I feel better, stronger, more confident and ready to take on the world!” Remember that “I am Woman, Hear me Roar!” feeling? (Thanks Helen Reddy!)

The Question Now Is…

How do you get back to that place in your life when you felt so great?

Where to turn? How about our good friend Google! When you type in “Self Improvement” the list is endless.

Next step?

Diet? Nope, you sure don’t want to go on another calorie counting extravaganza only to gain it all back because you’re craving a much-deserved piece of dark chocolate with a glass of red wine.

Gym? Well maybe, but since you are working full time, you really don’t have the time.

Yoga? Sounds nice but will you really get there at 6:00 am.

Counselling? You want your clothes to fit, you aren’t nuts!

Hypnosis? Let’s not be ridiculous!

Hmmmm. How about Image Consulting? But what is it?

Image Consulting is a professional field where clients hire an expert to evaluate, improve, enhance, update, or upgrade their appearance to ensure that their Image will achieve their personal, social, and/or professional roles and goals. In other words, help with what they want to accomplish in life.

Image Consulting helps clients create a positive impression through the perceptions they create using the elements of Image—clothing, grooming, body language, and etiquette. It will empower clients to reflect or project the confidence and competence that comes from an authentic, appropriate, and attractive appearance for any personal, social, or professional situation.

Image Consulting will help you get out of a rut, gain more confidence, and garner more respect. It will be much easier to get a date, a job, a promotion, or simply get out and get involved in your life! When you look better, you feel better, act better, and then others react better to you. Life gets better. The world becomes a better place—it works!

Why Barbara?

Barbara Christie, Owner Operator of b-true Image Consulting, has had a lifelong interest in fashion, design, theatre and interior decorating. After raising two children and having had several different, successful careers, she wanted to do something to satisfy both her artistic bent and her desire to help others. After speaking with a good friend, Barbara enrolled in the Image Consulting Certification Program at Langara College.

This opened the door into a whole new world for her; she was so excited! Barbara loved the colors, the fashion, styling and helping people. This led to the birth of b-true Image Consulting, first in Vancouver B.C. and now on Vancouver Island. Her philosophy is “Love your Look, Love your Life”. While some people may say that beauty comes from the inside, confidence and feeling great comes from the outside. First impressions are formed within the first two to seven seconds and may never change. This is where style, color and image play a huge role. While fashion and style have been a big part of her life for decades, Barbara has been helping men and women discover their inner selves through color, fashion and style since 2013 and would love to help you! Call to connect with Barbara now – and start living a life you love!
