Love Your Home
I’m here to help you with your home
Free from judgement and full of creativity, I assist people to set up a new home, improve an existing home, prepare to relocate, or downsize for retirement.
Tell me what you need, go at your pace
You decide what you want to tackle and achieve, and which services and support you require to get your best outcome. Every person and household is different, and my help is tailored to meet your particular needs and budget. I do this with care and respect for your history, family situation, physical and/or mental health challenges and personal style.
Clutter & Disorganisation
I work with people across the full spectrum of organisational needs; from mild situational disorganisation and clutter such as paperwork, photos, clothing, toys or the garage; through to those with Chronic Disorganisation & Hoarding Disorder affecting their entire household. I’m not afraid to roll my sleeves up and get dirty and you can’t shock me. I’ll never tell you what you should or shouldn’t keep, but guide you to meet your goals free from bias.
I help you identify & develop your style, curate your furniture and decor, make the most of what you have and fill in the missing pieces to make it all click. It’s about creating the space you want, not a perfect room for the cover of a magazine.
Are you like the people I’ve already worked with?
They’re people who describe their clutter as making them feel suffocated, embarrassed, trapped, exhausted and anxious. But also that their stuff helps them feel safe, prepared, resourceful and ready to help others. Or sometimes they just don’t like what they have, and their house doesn’t feel like a true reflection of who they are.
They want to keep the positive feelings but recognise the quantity of their stuff plus the lack of organisation and storage means that they can’t actually find and use their things; and that life at home is more difficult that it needs to be. And they’re ready for their personality to shine through, but need help to create the ideas they’ve had in their head. The good news is, there is a way to strike a balance and create the space you’ve always wanted.
What will it take to change?
The truth is that if you don’t take action now then the issues will get worse, and it will become even more difficult to turn it all around. I know that it is hard, I know that it can be emotional, and I know that you’re brave by even looking into working with a Professional Organiser and Stylist. I also know that there is a valid and effective way to get from where you are and where you want to be, and I can get you there.
