Yes, just click here to view my T&C’s (contract), which protects us both. We will both sign this prior to our first session together.

You may want regular decluttering  sessions (daily or weekly) so that you get completely organised. You may get back in touch with me in a month, or even a year. That way you stay on track- or you might want to deal with another area. You may want to work with me using Skype sessions. Whatever kind of help you need to get organised, I’m here for you.

How often? That really depends on you. If you have a number of rooms to declutter, you could book some more days to finish the job. Or you may find you feel energised by the session and have learned enough about the basic principles to continue by yourself. Either is fine!

That depends on you. If you would like to meet me first, and live close to SE14, I’m happy to do an initial hour assessment/consultation. You can either book a half day (3 hrs) or full day (6 hrs) session. A half day session is generally the minimum time needed to make good progress, but it depends on what needs doing and how much energy you have.

Yes. We usually start by decluttering, so that you know what needs storing. I can then help you source the best solution to suit your budget and style. I’ll give you lots of advice and ideas as we declutter, and if you need further help we can book another session.

Just because something has outstayed its welcome in your house, doesn’t mean it is no longer useful. Think about recycling clutter, by donating to charity shops/ Freecycle etc. (See the Useful Info page for more on how to deal with unwanted items.) I can also show you how to sell things on Ebay.

Yes- my job is to help you re-visit your relationship to your ‘stuff’ so you live in a less cluttered home. I can’t decide what you keep or what you declutter. Instead we’ll talk as we sort, so you can decide whether to keep items or let them go.

Firstly, you don’t need to tidy up or be embarrassed about the area to be decluttered- that’s why I’m coming! Strong bin liners and any boxes or storage you already have may be helpful. Please don’t buy special storage before the visit- it’s always best if we de-clutter before you spend money on storage.

No, there’s no need! I will have seen it all before and won’t judge you on whatever we find. I’m working with you to help you deal with any clutter, and I always respect your privacy and confidentiality. (Do let me know if there are particular areas you want us to avoid during a session).

No- I’m not naturally tidy and I live in a normal house with other family members, so it is rarely perfect. But it’s usually no more than an hour away from being tidy…

Of course I’m pretty organised, everything has a home, and we regularly declutter as necessary. There’s usually a bag on its way to charity!. We are always aiming for a simpler life- focussing more on living rather than owning loads of ‘stuff’.
