Hi, I'm Sue
As a working mum I’m used to juggling a hectic work schedule with family life. Our home is always busy, with teenagers, school bags and sports equipment being traipsed through the house daily.
I know how easy it is to accumulate a lot of “stuff” over the course of everyday life. I understand how stressful it is when things build up and you start to lose track of what you have and where things are - I’ve been there.
I'm passionate about helping people organise their homes, paperwork and time, simplifying everything so they can focus on the things that are most important to them.
I understand that making the decision to declutter your home and get organised can be a huge step for clients. You may feel overwhelmed and unsure where to begin but that’s why I’m here!
I’ll encourage you to think about how you’d like your home to look and feel and will work with you to achieve this using a practical, tried and tested process.
I’ll help you stay on track with the tidying, passing on declutter tips as we work through the clutter and emotions, making the process as smooth as possible.
I'll never ask you to discard something you don’t want to but I will keep asking you questions about your possessions so that you know that you will love, need or use everything you keep.
I aim to limit the amount of discarded items that end up in landfill sites. We'll look at options for repurposing storage, selling unwanted items, donating to charity and recycling.
As we work together I’ll teach you some organising tips and new habits to help you to keep your home organised.
My service is non judgemental, confidential, calm and practical.
I'm based in Winchester and work throughout Hampshire, Wiltshire, Surrey & London.

Why I work with Marie Kondos KonMari Method™
I came across the KonMari™ Method 3 years ago when I read Marie Kondo’s book “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying”. I loved the methods’ practical framework for decluttering and tidying homes, for the first time ever I had an “aha” moment as I realised why I’d previously found it difficult to declutter my bedroom or kitchen and keep on top of things.
I also love how Marie Kondos Method encourages people to look at their possessions in a new way by asking whether items Spark Joy - this positive approach really turned the decluttering process on it’s head for me as I'd previously looked for items to discard rather than deciding which things I wanted to keep. I even found myself applying the Spark Joy test to other areas of my life – I’m happier and healthier because of it.
I was so inspired by how I felt once I’d organised our home that I trained with Marie Kondo and her team to become a KonMari consultant in April 2018 and have been helping clients across the South of England ever since. It’s so rewarding to be able to combine my passion for organising with helping people to live in a simplified and uplifting way.
