Decluttering and home organising services – hands on help OR declutter lesson/coaching.
I can help declutter and organise any area or aspect of your home to YOUR specification.
Below are just some of the professional organiser and decluttering tasks that I can assist with, click on each title for more information:
Toys, books and plastic toys coming out of the walls? Clothes everywhere and not a pair of socks matching? It’s a common scene in almost all family homes.
A good declutter and efficient storage all areas is the answer to keeping your home organised and tidy ongoing. Sometimes just a couple of sessions may be enough to get you moving in the right direction. I can also set some achievable ‘homework’ tasks in between sessions if you’d like. If budget is very limited a declutter lesson/coaching session might be the best investment. See next section. Just drop me a line with your wish list and priorities and an idea of your realistic budget and we can work out the best starting point for your declutter journey.
Are you struggling to make progress? You are not alone, many people go round in circles with their decluttering attempts.
The key to success is breaking the tasks down into manageable parts…AND efficient method. Declutter coaching offers cost effective step by step PERSONALISED help with this.
HOW DO SESSIONS WORK?
I have worked with many clients over the years and recognise that each person and situation is different.
In our initial session, in a visit to your home (please don’t worry, I will take you as I find you of course) we’ll assess the overall goal you want to reach and talk about your home/work situation, time and energy available etc. You are likely to feel a bit apprehensive about the visit but you will also hopefully find yourself at ease with me and more than likely relieved to be asking for guidance. No judgement, just solutions.
We’ll discuss an efficient method of working and I will set you some personalised realistically achievable tasks to get you started. If you’d like any subsequent sessions we will continue to guide you on suitable tasks – a step by step tailored approach. You are free to engage with just an initial session to get you started, or to continue with periodic sessions to keep the task moving/keep you on track. Subsequent sessions may be in person or by phone, by agreement.
Are you wearing less than half of the clothes you own? SO many of us have a mountain of clothes that are inaccessible to us, either because they are no longer useful, or stored randomly.
I love to help with this money saving task. Buy less, wear more!
We will talk about seasons, colour, sizing etc. then work together to categorise items so that you can SEE what you have. I can take any unwanted items to charity then we work together on organised and efficient storage. I can provide space saving hangers to streamline the process if you’d like. THE RESULT: a beautifully organised wardrobe system that can be maintained easily in the long term.
Change and transitions in life are inevitable for us all. Divorce, relationship break ups, bereavement, new baby/a growing family, downsizing, moving house, ill health and incapacity – the list is endless. The circle of life can certainly bring some challenging transitions which, more often than not bring major reorganisation with regards your living arrangements. Whatever your situation I can help ease the process. A word on some specific scenarios:
New baby/a growing family/elderly parent moving into your family home.
Is your home already bursting at the seams with people and stuff? For many people it seems like a bigger house is the only option but there may be another way. Perhaps it’s possible to rearrange use of rooms/space to create an additional nursery or bedroom. Call on me for a one to one advice session and we can see what’s possible.
Home organising after bereavement.
An already deeply upsetting time also brings the need to organise – both paperwork for probate and the home generally. I have helped many clients in this situation and would be happy to offer some practical support with getting the administrative part in order and to help ease the burden of going through other items when you feel ready. I totally understand that emotions may be to the forefront of these sessions and you are assured of empathy and compassion in help with this daunting task.
It is a fact that busy professionals often don’t have the time or energy to keep on top of organisation in the home. No need to feel guilty about it; just give me a call for a quick chat about your goals and delegate the task of getting things back on track to me.
Administration, household bills & utilities and paperwork generally – this can be a major headache for a lot of people and I can help. Is your mail and paperwork mounting up and you don’t know how to take control of it? Is your home office just not working for you?
With several years of corporate Office Management experience, I can assist with working through the backlog and devise a new system to match your needs and logic – you will feel the stress disappear knowing that you have a system in place to keep the admin in check ongoing.
Moving house can be an exhausting and hugely stressful time. It is a well acknowledged fact that a clutter free home with defined zones will sell faster and for more money and without a doubt any money spent on the task will easily be recouped in the increased sale price. Selling house services come in three stages: Declutter. Home staging. Unpack & create systems in new home. You can engage with any or all services as you prefer.

If the assistance you need is not on the list please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see if I can help.
You may of course have questions. Some of them may be answered in ‘frequently asked questions’ FAQ page. Otherwise please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to answer them.
