What clients say about Heather:
For us too, Heather worked a miracle. Heather is understanding, tactful, and extremely efficient without ever being bossy or intrusive – a real pleasure to work with.
“For us too, Heather worked a miracle. Our flat was already full to overflowing when we had urgently to find room for 22 boxes of books, china and other belongings, plus a piano, that we moved to Edinburgh from Spain when we gave up our second home there. I was nearly in despair, not knowing where to begin. Heather worked out a flexible plan, breaking the project down into a manageable sequence. Each session brought a new phase of visible progress. Heather magicked away our discards at the end of each session (amazing how much can be fitted into a tiny Skoda), with all that could be salvaged going to a charity shop or recycling centre. Step by step our spaces and documents were re-organised and our professional and domestic lives brought back under control. Heather is understanding, tactful, and extremely efficient without ever being bossy or intrusive – a real pleasure to work with. We will certainly ask for her help again whenever we are in need of a good sorting!”

I’d thoroughly recommend Heather to anyone wanting to prepare their house for sale.

She took every potential problem away… has broad shoulders and a can do attitude
“Thanks so much to Heather for receiving deliveries to my flat in Edinburgh and supervising a furniture removal from it while I was on holiday in Thailand (relaxing and sipping on an ice cold beer). She took every potential problem away, managed suppliers, co-ordinated the workers and just made what could have been a stressful day into a totally relaxed one. She has broad shoulders and a can do attitude that gave me complete confidence that everything would be done without hassle to me. Great service. Have already booked her to organise some other household matters and trade quotations prior to my return saving me valuable time during my short UK visits.”

No challenge seemed too big or too small and we always managed to get more done in the time than I expected.
“No challenge seemed too big or too small and we always managed to get more done in the time than I expected. My whole house is now one organised working machine (except for the occupants!) and the added bonus was we had a laugh doing it. I’m almost sorry we have finished and would recommend Heather to anyone who asked!”

In my eighties now….. I feel in safe hands with Heather and am so glad to have found her …I’d truly be lost without her help.
“In my eighties now I find it difficult to keep up with things – all the household administration and running about that needs to be done. I feel in safe hands with Heather and am so glad to have found her. She visits once a week and helps with whatever I need – errands, sorting mail and making sure things happen that need to. I’d truly be lost without her help.”

I really appreciated your experience…… A fantastic job!
“I have never been the most organised of people. However, until I met Heather I didn’t realise what I was missing! Heather takes de-cluttering to a whole new level…..I am extremely grateful and so pleased that the huge, seemingly insurmountable, stress of unpacking, sorting through and placing has been lifted. I really appreciated your experience in questioning and understanding the different issues with ‘work from home’ and ‘general house utility’ administration. The sessions were great fun too. Thank you for powering through and leaving the house organised with on-going process in place for smooth running. Thank you very, very, much Heather….A fantastic job !”

Without exaggeration Heather saved my sanity!
“Having moved in and then renovated our house whilst heavily pregnant, the arrival of baby number two left no time to restore order to our home, or indeed even unpack all the boxes. Our home office and the nursery were particular problem areas. Heather came in and systematically went through putting the foundations in place to ensure a smooth running, organised home. Without exaggeration Heather saved my sanity!”

Heather acts professionally, is firm but fair with workmen and shows flexibility on availability. Her communication skills are excellent……she is one hundred percent reliable.
“Finding Heather was a miracle: From managing the logistics of furniture deliveries through to project managing larger jobs, Heather acts professionally, is firm but fair with tradesmen and shows flexibility on availability. Her communication skills are excellent. She is one hundred percent reliable. Aside from actually getting the jobs done, the ownership Heather takes completely takes away the stress of remote property ownership. I only wish I could transport her to London to manage my life down here as well as she does my Scottish one!”

The systems she put in place are still working months later and have made a huge difference to our tidiness and our stress levels.
“Heather did a tremendous job streamlining a busy house with 3 kids and 2 working parents. The systems she put in place are still working months later and have made a huge difference to our tidiness and our stress levels.”

I have a great sense of relief and achievement having sorted through a horrible backlog of ‘stuff’.
“…….we worked together to decide what papers were significant and what could be discarded or shredded… I now have active, reference and archive files that make sense. I have a great sense of relief and achievement having sorted through a horrible backlog of ‘stuff’.”

A great resource and money well spent when life gets hectic.
“Over the last year I have employed Heather at The Help Edinburgh to assist with a wide variety of tasks in my busy life. She has decluttered areas of my home, assisted with my e bay business, with catering at my B & B, with tenant changeovers at my short term property let, and with dog walking. I have found Heather to be 100% reliable and extremely versatile and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company – a great resource and money well spent when life gets hectic.”

Thank you so much, Heather, for everything. It was a pleasure working with you.
“Heather just got down to the job – showed us how to organise things – organised tradesmen – and then found a place for everything. The flat is now a beautiful welcoming home, drawers and cupboards labelled so that carers can find and keep things in their right place. Thank you so much, Heather, for everything. It was a pleasure working with you.”

I would recommend Heather if you want to get your life sorted
“I engaged the services of Heather to organise my flat when I was on crutches after an accident….I am dyspraxic and therefore find personal organisation very difficult, so Heather gave me valuable training in this area… It has made a whole raft of tasks easier, from packing to go on holiday, to finding important pieces of paperwork. I would recommend Heather if you want to get your life sorted”
