How Can We Help You?

It has become apparent to me that what any of us need in life is basically shelter, a safe environment, clean clothes, food and water. Belongings are important and can ring joy but an excess of them can cause stress and overwhelm. When I realised I enjoyed helping people get their houses in order, it felt like I had found my calling.

Making A Difference

To date I have worked with hundreds of different clients who have found themselves overwhelmed and in need of assistance to declutter and organise.  Many perceive their situations badly and may fear a negative reaction. I give support sensitively and without judgement.

Every job no matter how great or small is do-able. I am conscientiously eco-friendly, being aware of human behaviour and the impact of waste on the planet and its future. I always seek to recycle / re-use (donate / sell) to reduce landfill.

I have seen how decluttering and organising has made all the difference for clients; their homes are tidier, they feel lighter and less stressed, they are happier and they can enjoy life. At the end of the day I enjoy my work and to see people change for the better makes the work all the more rewarding. If you need help with your belongings at home, do get in touch. We can have a friendly chat about whether it’s the right service for you – you won’t regret it.

How can we help you with Decluttering Services & Home Organising?

House Organiser Services

Declutter Your Home

Whether you need help to declutter your house or a specific space, such as your office or wardrobe, I will sensitively work with you to declutter your personal space and offer decluttering tips to maintain things.

Organise Your Home

Simple habits and routines are at the heart of what I teach. Many people resolve to ‘be more organised’ but that goal is too big on its own. By breaking down actions into small, achievable ‘micro habits’, it’s possible to learn to be organised even if it doesn’t come naturally to you.

Productivity Coaching/Time Management Coaching/ADHD Coaching

I have experience in helping people deal with mental clutter and emotional blocks. I also have experience and have completed specific training for professional organising working with ADHD clients. I will work with you on your mindset whilst supporting you emotionally. I can also deliver productivity sessions in person – read more about productivity coaching.

Help Moving House

Moving house is an opportunity for a fresh start. You may need to declutter before or during the moving process or would like tips on organising your new home to make it work for you and your new space.

I can work with you during the entire moving house project, from packing to unpacking and organisation.

I have specific training and years of experience working with those with hoarding issues. I approach every project with empathy and understanding.

The Team


Rachel A Tidy Mind

Rachel Cordingley – Owner of A Tidy Mind West & North Yorkshire

About Rachel

I’m a born and bred Yorkshire girl, but have also lived in Birmingham, London, Salamanca and Barcelona in Spain and Funchal in Madeira and speak Spanish.

Officially, I have been a professional organiser since 2016. In reality, I have been doing it all my life. As a child in the nursery I divided up the room with my skipping rope so that my side could remain tidy and organised, whilst my younger sister’s contained her mess! That said, in my role as an organiser, I put what works for me to one side and focus on what will work for you. Everyone’s definition of clutter is different so by careful listening and using empathy and creativity, we create a vision, then implement a a state of tidiness you can maintain.

I’m enthusiastic about what I do and love nothing more than to tidy and organise any area of a home. It’s just as important to help you adopt new habits and routines so you feel empowered to run your home or workspace smoothly.

Before I started doing this professionally, I gained a lot of insight into decluttering homes due assisting elderly relations when they downsized. They moved from a large family home into a small ground floor flat for reasons of deteriorating health. Given their ages and being war babies, many things had been saved as “it might come in useful” or “to mend and make do”, so the house clearing and move was no small task.

I regularly invest in training and professional development and am a verified member of APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers)Rachel Cordingley APDO

Helen – Professional Organiser – A Tidy Mind West & North Yorkshire

About Helen

Helen’s eclectic twenty years of work since graduating can be attributed to the Quaker way of living: attend to what love requires of you. She has been drawn to work which is useful, supportive and kind and empowers people. This has included sociological research and writing on social exclusion, voluntary befriending, advocacy, social prescribing and finally professional decluttering and organising. All of her work has involved supporting people who are struggling / overwhelmed in one way or another. Studies in the areas of counselling, Transactional Analysis and advocacy have enhanced her aptitude for active, non-judgemental listening and empathy.

Helen loves decluttering, organising, filing, creating order and writing lists; and with her passion for interior design she loves creating aesthetically pleasing and practically useful spaces for people for whom these things do not come easily. When not in work mode, Helen is raising two children and enjoys baking, reading, knitting and crochet.
