Professional Organiser London & decluttering service

How Can We Help You?

*COVID-19 update* We adhere to government guidelines to work with you safely in your home. Click here to read the list of precautions we take.

We also offer virtual organising & decluttering


We believe that your physical space can affect your mental space. If your home is cluttered or disorganised, then your mind will be too. A disorganised home/office can lead to reduced productivity, procrastination, stress and overwhelm. We help get things in order, so you can live a more calm and stress free life.

We can help you even if you don’t have a lot of clutter. Perhaps  you just need help to set up better organisational systems, optimising your space, or you just want a reset, in which case we can help with home styling too.

This may be the first time you’ve considered using a professional organiser & decluttering service but if you’re in or near London & feel overwhelmed in your home, look no further! With our guidance and expertise, you will achieve a calmer home & head & anything you do let go of will be passed on to a worthy cause.

Services We Offer

Face to Face Services

Organising, Decluttering & Simplifying

When clients get in touch with us about a decluttering or organising project,  it’s usually because they don’t know where or how to start. Whether you need help to sort out your whole house or a specific space, such as your home office or wardrobe, we will empathetically work with you to achieve your goal, offering expert tips along the way. We find & implement the best systems that work for you. Hiring a professional organiser can be an excellent investment into your home & yourself. Anyone can be taught to be more organised with the right tools and systems in place.

Some of the areas we can help with:

> Whole house

> Wardrobes & Cupboards

> Kitchen/Utility Rooms

> Garage/Loft

> Paperwork

> Children’s toys

> Creating a home office

> Re-organising furniture to optimise your space

> Digital Organising


Home Styling & Home Staging

One of our specialities is styling a space during the organising & decluttering process, however, we also offer this as a separate service too. If you would like to style your home or stage it for a sale, we can help. We try our best to use what you already own to keep costs down and avoid purchasing unnecessary items. We may Re-position furniture to optimise your space and suggest new colours for walls or built in storage.

How it works: We start with an in-home assessment. The assessment and research of products will be charged at a set fee of £100. The project fee will be based on one of our packages or charged on an hourly basis. All of this will be discussed in advance.


Help moving house

Moving  home can be daunting but it doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s a wonderful opportunity to start with a clean slate. You might need to declutter during the moving process, downsize or need help packing, unpacking or organising your new home. We can help unpack your new home in a practical way, creating systems along the way to ensure your move is as smooth as possible.

If you’re moving within or out of London, we can work with you during (or at any stage of) the moving process.


Help with hoarding

We have had specific training (through Hoarding Disorders UK) to work with people with hoarding issues. Compulsive collecting & hoarding must be treated with patience, creativity, empathy & understanding. We can help whether or not you have a diagnosed hoarding disorder.


Working with pets

Craig founded an animal charity in the Seychelles when he was younger & has a lot of experience with pets. If you have pets, you can rest assured that they are loved & we will know how to engage with them. Perhaps you need help to organise pet things? Or learn habits to keep things tidy with pets around?

About Me

CRAIG – Owner, Professional Organiser & Coach

I’m Craig, I’m the owner of A Tidy Mind London & love helping people transform their homes.

I have a calm & supportive approach to working with clients and allow you to deal with the mental clutter too while we sort through the physical ones. Organising is a true passion of mine & after first establishing your needs, I will look at your home with fresh eyes to come up with the right storage, routines and habits that suit your space. I speak 3 languages fluently (English, French & Creole) & conversational Spanish. So please get in touch for a free chat to see how I can help you.

I am a proud, verified member of APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers)Craig Horaeau APDO

Background

I grew up in the Republic of Seychelles. I was never given an abundance of toys or devices as a child. I played outside (on the beach) & had very little material possessions. My mother raised me with the idea that possessions were not the source of happiness & that I should treasure & be grateful for what I had. At the time, I wasn’t happy as I wanted what my friends had! But reflecting back now, I am so pleased that I did not get what I wanted because it was not what I needed. As an adult, I would trade a new gadget for a beach holiday any day!

Being tidy & organised comes naturally to me, mostly due to my upbringing but also because I was surrounded by many different cultures & types of households, as the Seychelles is a very multi-cultural country.

Being a natural declutterer & house organiser helped me tremendously to become self-aware, relaxed & content in my life.  That’s not to say I am perfect, I have had many rough patches – but I’ve always managed to find my focus & lift myself up again. When I did reach those points, I would do a massive clear-out to cope with the stress which did help greatly. It is amazing how the things we acquire can take up so much of your emotional space. I use simplicity, order & focus to help me through any difficult period.

Before stepping into Professional Organising full time, I worked in E-commerce & Customer Service as a Manager & before that Executive Assistant & Office Manager roles. I have worked in Media, Fashion, Pet Travel & Tourism. All these experiences required me to be super organised & meticulous.

I adore animals & care for their welfare. I am the co-founder of a non-profit organisation for Animal Welfare & Animal Shelter in Seychelles called the Seychelles Pet Haven Society.

I have been highly trained and continue to develop my skills on the A Tidy Mind programme & have a qualification in life coaching to support the practical side of my work.

I love nothing more than supporting & empowering my clients to find calm through tidying. I enjoy writing about organising too!

The Team


Jayne Qureshi A Tidy Mind London

JAYNE: Professional Organiser – A Tidy Mind London

Jayne has a background in nursing & has worked for most of her career on a children’s liver transplant ward. She eventually stopped as her family grew in order to focus on them.

She has been a magistrate for the last 11 years, in the adult & youth criminal courts. In both of these roles she needed an organised, structured & focused mind. Jayne is a brilliant professional organiser with a confident & thoughtful approach to organising.

Jayne says:

”I have always enjoyed the buzz & reward of bringing order out of chaos. I realised that I had an ability to organise when I had two children under three & could transform their tiny playroom from a junkyard into a toyshop in a short time. I developed the skills necessary to help people declutter when I prepared my mother to move from a 4 bedroom detached house in which she had lived for 30 years, into a tiny one bedroom retirement flat. She was reluctant to part with anything.

I firmly believe that living in an organised, clutter free space makes the mind calmer & with systems in place to keep things organised, life is easier. I get great satisfaction from seeing the delight & relief on clients’ faces when they see their homes transformed.”

Netta says:
”I have always been passionate about interiors & have worked in this field for many years. If my home is cluttered & disorganised, so is my mind.

I have always loved helping people declutter, organise & style their homes. I love rolling my sleeves up & getting stuck in. I also love flowers & am a qualified faux flower expert.

Being of Italian descent, food is a big part of my upbringing & my kitchen is the heart of my home.  Starting my day with meditation helps clear my mind ready for the day ahead.”
