Most smaller projects like a wardrobe, pantry or laundry organisation can be finished in a 4-hour session. Decluttering and organising an entire house may take several organisers a few weeks to finish.
I find that six hours is the maximum time anyone can declutter at a time, particularly if there is some decision making involved.
.Well.. where do I start ;) . First of all, congratulations on trying, while decluttering and organising may sound like simple tasks, they are not easy to complete. It takes a lot of determination, patience and physical and mental strength to not only declutter but also maintain some state of order. While it may be second nature for some people, staying organised can be a real challenge for others, especially if life surprises you with unexpected events, an injury or mental health diagnosis. Which is where I come to the rescue. I will not declutter for your, I declutter with you.
The idea is to teach the client how to maintain the newly established order. So I work with you and we declutter, purge, sort, build flatpacks and organise together.
That way you do not only have an organised and functional space at the end of the session, but you have learned some essential tools to maintain that space, be it decision making, focusing on one task at a time, letting go, categorising, zoning or folding your washing.

Please contact me to discuss. My experience is that most hands-on projects take a minimum of four hours.
Please contact me to discuss. If you are not in a covid-related lockdown and within a reasonable travel distance, travel charges may apply. Or you may want to consider a virtual organising session - distance does not matter there, as long as you have a mobile phone or laptop!
In virtual organising sessions, we use technology to connect. All you need is a mobile phone with camera, tablet or laptop. I will invite you to an online Zoom video conference, where you can use your camera to show me the areas that need to be organised, and I will make suggestions and work out a plan together with you.
The short answer is NO. No, you cannot book on their behalf. I am saying this to protect your relationship. While it may seem obvious for you that the other person needs help, it may not be so clear for them and they may find it rather inconsiderate or even rude for you to even suggest that they may have too much stuff. And even if they agree, they may not be ready to start their journey to become uncluttered. Please contact me if you think you know someone how needs help and we can discuss the best way forward,
I do. However, my experience is that the recipients do not necessarily appreciate your well-meant gesture, so I do not recommend going down that path unless you have a very clear indication from the future recipient that they would love a professional organiser to come in and help them. Please contact me if you think you know someone how needs help and we can discuss the best way forward,
Octarine is the eighth colour of the rainbow, the colour of magic.
"It was alive and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination, because wherever it appeared it was a sign that mere matter was a servant of the powers of the magical mind. It was enchantment itself. But Rincewind always thought it looked a sort of greenish-purple.”
― Terry Pratchett, The Color of Magic
