Strategy Beyond the Pretty
4-MONTH 1:1 CONSULTANCY + COACHING
Ready to transform your creative business and increase your confidence, joy AND profit
This is my intensive signature service for those really looking to go beyond the pretty and start scaling their business. Due to the high touch nature of this service I only on-board one new client each month so please do check for availability.
No more playing small, it’s your time to shine as a business. It’s time to see beyond the pretty, to live a life with freedom and abundance. Having ideas for creative projects and services is never an issue for you, but knowing which one to pursue is. You feel incredibly overwhelmed so either launch them all unsuccessfully OR none of them.
You’ve taken course after course, worked with business and mindset coaches, but still something is missing. Your creative mind was ignored amongst the cookie cutter approach being offered. You’ve had success in your business but have hit a creative block; you can’t seem to get past the stage you are at.
What if, the reason why you are struggling is that you don’t want a formula led approach? You don’t want to be the same as the rest? The whole reason for starting your business was to live a life filled with joy and laughter and right now that just isn’t happening.
Like a bird in a cage, you want your creativity to break free but feel trapped by the strategy needed to scale. You intuitively know you need help but you’ve been burnt in the past so feel hesitant about trusting someone again.
Imagine what it would feel like to have a business that brings you the creative freedom you always desired? To have the systems in place so you have more time to pursue artistic projects without being shackled to your desk. You didn’t launch your business to be working all the time, you want to go out and have fun, to leave your mark through your talent.
The truth is, creativity will only get you so far when you have big dreamy goals to reach. You have to know how to run a sustainable and profitable business. How do you do this? By working with someone who will teach you the tools needed to scale AND provide shortcuts to do exactly this.
So are you ready to gain unshakeable confidence, reach your big goals and find the strategies that work for your creative business? If so I would like to tell you more about my 4 month 1:1 consultancy blending together strategy with mindset work. Designed especially for soul led creatives just like you.
I understand wedding businesses and their need for beautiful aesthetics, I also understand creatives and their passion for creating something magical. I respect, admire and love the talent that is surrounding me.
I want you to embrace your creativity, I want to hear all the ideas you have but then I’ll help you focus. I’ll guide you in ways to knuckle down to business so it brings you the joy, freedom and profit you desire.
I have an intuitive ability to zone in on what negative beliefs are holding you back, and since certifying as an energy healer I am now in a position to help you with your subconscious mind alongside the strategy. Yes I know the word strategy makes you shudder but I will provide you with tools to make it fun, I promise!
What makes me different from the hundreds of coaches and consultants is that I’m not trying to get you to use one size fits all method. I truly get to know you as a person so the methodology we use suits your style. We all do business differently and creative businesses are a unique blend, the cookie cutter approach just isn’t going to bring that magic ingredient you need.
I want you working in your zone of genius so you can grow and scale in your own unique, soulful way. When you work with me you not only get my strategic toolkit of delights, you have access to my energy healing as well. I’m very hands on so expect my eyes on every aspect of your business. Oh and I’ll be your biggest cheerleader 😉
How can I help you?
When I work with clients I use my Beyond the Pretty framework to provide the structure.
After our on boarding call I will suggest the key areas that need some love and attention during our time together.
Some of the areas we *might be working on include:
I believe a business has to light up your soul, it needs to bring you joy. So this is where we start. Using a combination of energy clearing, visualisation exercises and vision planning we will create the structure for your creative business.
MINDSET + CONFIDENCE
I will dig deep to discover what negative beliefs are holding you back right now and work with you to bring forth your confidence. This can be especially helpful for my introvert clients who perhaps shy away from “showing up”, as an introvert I can relate and will share what has helped me over the years.
I will use a mixture of energy clearing and specific empowerment tasks to calm and challenge you. I will never force you to do something that is not aligned to your personality, albeit at times I will challenge you.
Next up is getting down to the nitty gritty. I get you find this side of business tedious but it doesn’t have to be. We will review your business foundations and strengthen ready for you to scale to new exciting heights. There are a number of areas we will work on during our time together; these will have been highlighted in your business review.
- IDEAL CLIENT PSYCHOLOGY
Who are your targeting and what is the current customer journey like from start to finish? Is this client the right client for your growth and financial freedom? From research tasks you will come away knowing exactly who to target and more importantly what their pain points are
- SERVICE / PRODUCTS
What services are you currently offering and what is the price point? What new exciting ideas do you have? What marketing plan is most suited to this new service or product?
What figure would bring forth the profit and freedom you want? We will analyse your offerings and discuss the profit margins for each one. You may also share a figure you want to bring into the business so we will explore ways for this to happen.
- FREEDOM OF TIME
Are there aspects of your business that could be automated? Ways to streamline? Or perhaps its time to ditch / delegate? By going through your zone of genius we can analyse your time and ensure you have more time doing what you love and spend less time on the tasks you don’t.
* each client is different so your roadmap will be reflective of the help that you need
This is a very hands-on experience with ongoing 1:1 support from me, so if you’re ready to up-level your business and invest in some serious time and hard work, this is the perfect service for you.
Who do I work with?
I work with a range of businesses but primarily in the wedding and creative industries.
A typical client is…
- Incredibly talented at what they do. But they struggle with choosing which idea to promote, they LOVE what they do and ADORE their clients. Sometimes to the detriment of their bottom line
- An entrepreneur that has already reached a certain level of success but is ready to up-level, they just need guidance along the way
- Soul led, introvert businesswoman who sometimes lacks the confidence needed to scale and grow
- A creative soul who has perhaps lost their way, imposter syndrome has stepped in their path BUT they are ready to work through any fears
- Passionate, tenacious AND trustworthy
If this sounds like you and you would love support in your business then book a call below to discover more.

Wedding Business Consultancy – VIP Day Testimonial
Expert guidance, some tough love and lots of support is exactly how I found working with Bernadette. Armed with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and direction and mostly clarity is how I left the days proceedings. It went so quickly and I must say although I started the day not knowing which way to turn. I know I definitely skipped out of the meeting with a renewed sense of direction and purpose and with a smile on my face - I was back in the driving seat!!!

Creative Business Consultancy Testimonial
When I received my report from Bernadette following our meeting, not only was it full of fabulous points and findings but also tools to enable me to put my steps into place. In a busy world, you need to avoid overwhelm and I felt Bernadette had thoroughly thought this through enabling you to confidently start to change you business in an order that would ensure nothing would be left out
I most definitely recommend Bernadette. She is sincere, kind, approachable, confident and extremely knowledgeable in her field. Everyone needs Bernadette in their life. I cannot thank her enough - in a time when I felt lost those few precious hours together not only change my business but found me again

This journey I’ve been on has been hard work, challenging at times, sometimes scary, but so rewarding and enjoyable - it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for my business.
Natalie Hewitt Weddings
I am feeling so motivated, more astute and focused on getting the balance right between work, family and relaxation.
As a result of working with Bernadette I have already made inroads into getting the new business idea off the ground. At a time that I was struggling financially as a single parent and not in a position where my income covered the outgoings, paying for coaching seemed a luxury I couldn’t justify, however I believe that it was actually a necessary investment, to enable me to get to the next stage and out for the financial situation I was in.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have a question you’d love to ask, but are perhaps too shy to do so? Then don’t worry I have collated a collection of questions I am often asked.
Have a different question? Please do just drop me a line on email@example.com
How does the Strategy Beyond the Pretty work?
This is for those clients really ready to up-level. It is intensive and I require commitment from you , I’ll be going all in and I expect clients to do the same. This is a very hands-on experience with ongoing 1:1 support from me, so if you’re ready to up-level your business and invest in some serious time and hard work, this is the perfect service for you. After our on-boarding call, I will closely analyse your business and produce a bespoke report, so that we are crystal clear on the areas that we need to work on together.
• 2 hour on boarding call to delve into your business
• 8 x 1 hour zoom calls (bi-weekly)
• Concise report detailing the areas I feel we should work on to bring the results you desire
• Free access to any products available
• 7 days a week Voxer support
How much access do I get from you?
Quite a lot. As well as our calls you have unlimited access to me on the voice note app voxer. This is perfect for instant answers to your questions. I am also around to review your goal setting, proof reading, giving advice. I get very involved with my clients. If however you wanted additional calls outside of the agreement this is an extra charge.
What if I want to carry on working with you?
This is not unusual. Many clients either book an intensive day with me once a year or go onto a maintenance package, which is monthly calls after our 4 months are up.
How much time do I need to commit?
If booking my 4 month service then I suggest between 2-3 hours per week for calls and doing the work in between the calls. We have 2 x 1 hour calls per month but of course there will be “homework” to do in between.
What if I need to move a session?
I completely understand what it is like to run a seasonal business. I know sometimes your well planned schedule goes a little wrong. So yes if you can’t make a session I am happy to move it. I just ask for as much notice as possible. If you are wanting to move every session we will have a talk about your commitment.
I’m a wedding planner, can you train me?
My consultancy service is more suited for planners who have been in business at least 3 years. Otherwise I may refer you to my other business the UKAWP for more formal training.
However if you have been in business for over 3 years I am able to include ad hoc wedding planner training within the consultancy for no additional charge. This is normally planners who did not train with me and who have gaps in their knowledge.
Can you provide a tailored service?
Absolutely , if you need support but feel the services I offer don’t quite match your needs then I can create a bespoke offering for you instead. Lets jump on a call to decide how best I can support you.
I don’t want people to know I’ve hired you
Our time together is kept confidential unless you give me express permission to announce you as a client, or when you provide me with a testimonial.
