Professional Organiser London & decluttering service

How Can We Help You?


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 before the move, downsize or need help packing, unpacking or organising your new home.

What the house moving service involves:

– Declutter before a house move so you only take what you want/need and not paying to move clutter

– Help to pack or project manage the packing day with a moving company

– Unpacking and organising your new home

– Decide on the best position for furniture and styling the home

For the house move service we typically work in teams of 2-4 people in 8 hour sessions. We will create a bespoke estimate of time and cost based on the size of the home, what you want to include and amount of things to organise.

If you’re moving within or out of London, we can work with you during (or at any stage of) the moving process to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible.



Life Admin

Do you have a lot of personal tasks that seem to be pushed down the priority list because work takes over? Although there should be a balance between the two, when you have been postponing things for so long, it gets to a point that it becomes overwhelming. We can help with getting things done by not just going through physical items but also life admin tasks that are causing you stress.

Here are some of the areas where we can help:

– Tackling Overdue bills & tasks

– Registering and research

– Paperwork filing

– Booking Personal appointments

– Help setting system to maintain in future

– Help researching

– Problem solving

– Be your Accountability partner to ensure these things get done when they need to be

This service can take place in person (3 hrs minimum) or virtually (1 hour minimum). Anything that needs to be done outside of the session will be charged at the hourly rate



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?

Craig’s 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!
