Hello! I'm Kate
I'm based in Ilkley but am happy to travel throughout Yorkshire to work with you. I'm the founder of A Tidy Mind with many years experience and I specialise in working with those with anxiety or depression, families, those with hoarding issues and people who are generally overwhelmed.
North & West Yorkshire Decluttering Service
How Can I Help You?
I will work with you in a completely empathetic and supportive way. I show the utmost respect for your home & your possessions & I listen to exactly what you want so we can achieve it together. If you’re feeling very overwhelmed, then look no further because I have years worth of experience working with people like you. I help with all aspects of decluttering & organising, from paperwork, to wardrobes, kitchens, lofts, garages & of course the decluttering of bad habits & toxic thoughts. I love being part of your ‘fresh start’ – so many people go on this journey when they’re ready for a new beginning. I also have extensive experience in preparing you for a house move, staging the property, packing & unpacking – moving home does NOT have to be stressful. I’m also a qualified Life Coach so mentoring & teaching new habits are also important aspects of my service. I can help you with choosing the right storage for your home and have additional training in home staging and styling. Supporting charities is extremely important to me so I go out of my way to donate to a wide variety of local & national projects
I’m an understanding and supportive person, having had more than 10 years experience in the mental health sector prior to 2014. I like to treat all clients as individuals and with respect so I count listening as one of my top strengths. I’m also extremely hard working as well as being passionate about the donation/reuse/recycle side of my job. Last but not least, I have a good sense of humour – at least I hope you’ll think so!
Services I Offer
Whether you need help to declutter your house or a specific space, such as your office or wardrobe, I will sympathetically work with you to declutter your personal space and offer decluttering tips.
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. My 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.
I qualified as a coach in 2003 so have many years experience in helping people deal with mental clutter and emotional blocks. I will work with you on your mindset whilst supporting you emotionally.
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 how to organise 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.
Help With Hoarding
I have specific training and years of experience working with those with hoarding issues. I approach every project with empathy and understanding. Whether you have a diagnosed hoarding disorder and need to reclaim some space or simply would like help to let go of items that no longer bring you joy, I can help.
