How Can I Help You With Decluttering Services?
Your home is an extension of you. You deserve to live in a space that you love.
If you’re in Cheshire, North Staffordshire or Wrexham and need supportive, positive and practical guidance on how to declutter and organise your home, I can help. You’ve heard the saying ‘tidy home, tidy mind’. Studies actually show that a clearer home equals a clearer mind. An organised home, which is free from clutter is proven to reduce stress, improve happiness and has a positive impact on eating and exercise habits. I love to organise a house, flat, offices, individual rooms, garages, sheds, greenhouses and even house boats!
Our homes are a mirror reflection of our internal state.
Homes feel best when they give us a sense of calm but are also functional. They need to ‘work’ and be the kind of environment in which we feel relaxed and be ourselves.
During 2020 and 2021, many people decided to use a decluttering and organising service for the first time. Having seen the benefits of an organised home on TV shows like ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’, ‘The Home Edit’ and ‘Sort Your Life Out’. Every month, more and more people are hiring professional organisers to change habits of a life time and declutter their home once and for all.
Homeowners and renters alike are realising the value of removing clutter so they can focus on what is really important in their lives.
It’s so easy to become disorganised and messy. I’ve been there myself. Over the years as a busy, working mum I realised the power of tidying my house and the impact it had on my well-being. That is what motivated me to start my decluttering and organising business, A Tidy Mind, in Cheshire, North Staffordshire and Wrexham, so I can help others find the magic in their homes too. A house declutter can mean you reconnect with what’s important to you and save time. An organised home – with systems, habits, routines, storage, labels etc – adds little moments of joy as well as makes life easier.
Although it’s not realistic for anyone to live in a ‘show home’, it’s more about feeling in control of your home. It sounds simple but it’s about making it so that all your belongings have a place. Being able to find your belongings when you need them is important so that you can the gain the most use and joy from them. A feeling of calm and order at home is one of those things you can’t put a price on.
Let’s get specific. As a house organiser, I can help you:
- declutter & simplify your home

Declutter Your Home
I am a professional declutterer and a verified member of APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers). Clutter is subjective so I can help you decide, what to keep and when it may be time to donate to someone who will use it. It’s your home and your belongings, so decisions will be yours, not mine. But I will guide you to sort your space properly. Some clients need a whole house declutter. For others, it’s about specific rooms or categories such as; wardrobe, paperwork, home office, kitchen, garage, loft, shed, greenhouse and everything in between. A decluttering service can be needed for a variety of reasons; for the busy family who are simply time-poor, those who feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start or where there has been a change in life circumstances such as a relationship breakdown, new relationship or health issues. The service is confidential and respectful. All decluttering work will be completed with the utmost respect for you and your belongings and at your pace. My approach is warm but practical and light hearted but empathetic.
Organise Your Home
Home organising can look different to different people. It might involve learning new habits and home organisation systems which will help you keep things tidy. Routines tend to work well universally so if you want a more organised house, they are key. But I don’t teach anything complex or time consuming so if you’ve labelled yourself ‘disorganised’, rest assured that you can find another way and you don’t have to spending hours every week constantly organising your home forever (who has the time!?). Professional organising is about saving time in the long term and making sure everything has a place. Sometimes it’s about making things more aesthetically pleasing and having fun with your home as well. An organised home can be a more joyful one for sure but it does not (I repeat, not!) have to be perfect.
Productivity & Time Management Coaching
If you’re always on the back foot and need new habits and systems to manage your time, let’s give things an overhaul. I can travel to your home or place of work to provide my productivity coaching service or it can be easily delivered virtually.
Please see more info in the virtual section above or the dedicated Productivity Coaching page.
Home staging & styling
Some clients need to declutter and organise specifically with a view to selling or renting their home. Prospective buyers often need a depersonalised look and feel and that makes your home sell more quickly. With a background as a professional photographer, I can advise you as to what works visually to market your property to its full potential. Finishing touches make all the difference too the the first impression. Let me help you to present your home at its best to aid an easier house or flat sale.
Are you moving house? Why pay to transport possessions you don’t want, need or love. I can help you declutter before, during and / or after your move. I can also help you unpack and organise your new home.

I have been trained to the gold standards and with the same value and ethics of all A Tidy Mind home organisers. I’m also a verified member of APDO, the UK’s membership association for decluttering and organising professionals. APDO sets standards, provides professional development and supports the growth of the industry. I am fully DBS checked too (certificate number: 001012725185).
I live in Cheshire, not far from the border of North Staffordshire and I’m happy to travel throughout these areas and parts of North Wales to serve my clients.
Why am I a professional organiser?
I became involved in the world of professional organising and decluttering because I believe in the link between a tidy home and greater emotional well-being. Organising is a skill I have used every day as a photographer and I genuinely enjoy working with and helping people. Having a tidy home doesn’t solve every problem. But I find living in an organised home feels calmer. That’s worth it’s weight in gold.
What’s my approach to decluttering & organising homes?
The most important need to know about me is that I won’t force any ideals onto you. Every client is different and therefore A Tidy Mind- Cheshire provides a ‘bespoke’ service based on the organising needs of you and your home. There isn’t a right or wrong way to declutter and organise your space, time, digital life etc. It’s what works for you, looks good and makes you happy. I am always realistic and try wherever possible to utilise existing storage. That said, if you want ‘rainbow bookshelves’ and fancy labels, I can do that too!
What did I do before professional organising?
I have been a photographer for over 27 years so I have an eye for detail, look objectively at things and put people at their ease. I know when to offer suggestions but also when to listen. I will see the beauty and potential in your home (even if you don’t). And I couldn’t be more excited to help you on this journey to being a more organised you. So what are you waiting for!?
