It would seem a truism that in life it never rains, it pours.
But we have all had years in our lives where work, health, relationships and circumstance just seem to conspire against us.
The result is clutter and disorganisation that makes what should be your refuge (whether your entire home or just your bedroom) part of the problem. Add to the mix anxiety or depression and the overwhelm sets in.
So, while seeking help from someone who can provide decluttering and home organising services can seem to add to the sense of failure, it is actually a gesture of self-love and self-respect.
You push back and reclaim ownership, so that in a short space of time you acquire a sense of achievement and peace of mind as you take back control of your life and your clutter.
As a Professional Organiser, it is so satisfying to work alongside people in this situation. Supporting, guiding and sometimes coaching them. Watch as the sadness and slouch become a smile and a bounce in their step. Slowly stepping back as they reacquire confidence and motivation: taking back their personal space as just one step in dealing with their “annus horribilis”.
It might seem counterintuitive, but the biggest sign of success for a Professional Organiser is when you, the client, says “I don’t need your help anymore”.
