Introduction to Colour Psychology course

Picture this, I'm at college, sitting at table one evening surrounded by piles of teal blue felt, luscious chocolate brown ribbons and feathers. I couldn't wait to dive in and make a fabulous hat following a millinery course I had taken. To get the creative juices flowing I started fiddling with the various materials and suddenly realised "gosh it's not making hat that's exciting me, it's all the colours!" It was an epiphany moment one that took my life in a totally new direction.

I wanted, no needed, to learn everything I could about colour and why even the exposure to the colours on my table sparked such a strong emotional reaction.

I'm sure you've experienced one of those…? So I went off to learn everything I could about colour.

But I quickly got frustrated because whilst I loved studying traditional colour theory, what was being taught only scratched the surface. I knew there was more to colour than just the colour wheel. I sought out teachers from around the world to further my colour knowledge in the specialist field of psychology.

I also studied interior design and child psychology because everything starts from the child that we carry throughout our lives which continue to be affected and influenced by colour. And through that I’ve developed and established myself as an international expert in applied colour psychology. There’s no one else doing quite what I do.

Whilst there are others that take a more spiritual, therapeutic approach to colour... what makes me unusual is... not only is the work I do very practical and grounded... it's backed by scientific theory and study. It also has a very definite structure that can make all the difference how you as a designer and business person can implement this in the real world. I have been proving this over and over again working internationally with clients such as Dulux, Dove, B&Q, BASF, Unilever and Farrow & Ball.
