About your friendly local organisation and efficiency expert

I wasn't always tidy... my parents will testify to that fact! While I always loved the feeling of coming home to a neat and tidy bedroom (even early on the "aaahhh effect" had a hold of me!), I never made an effort to stay on top of the debris of a busy teenage life. The pile up was constant and inevitable - work clothes, sports uniforms, school bags, homework, and so on. Looking back I don't know how I achieved anything with all that stuff stifling me. (Actually I do know - thanks Mum!)

Fast forward to a very busy corporate role and I realised I found solace in organisation, both at work and at home. As I became familiar with systems-based approaches in my professional life, I realised that similar methodology could be applied at home with the same result - a structured and systematic approach means recurring tasks are completed with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, leaving more time and energy for the things that matter most in life. 

I truly believe structure, order and routine can pave the way to a more creative and fulfilling existence for almost everyone. I would love to share my knowledge with you, and help set you on a path to a more organised life.


What is “holistic organisation”?

I believe there is an organisational sweet spot that exists when a business or household is both clutter-free and systems-lead. In that sweet spot, it becomes easier to maintain order and keep things running ship shape. You might think that systems and processes stifle creativity and happiness, but in fact they can free up time and energy.

Holistic organisation means looking at the whole picture - shining a light on all of the puzzle pieces that could contribute to pile up. This might include clutter, people, a lack of systems, and so on. Decluttering is always the starting point and for a lot of people, that makes a huge difference and is enough. For others, digging a little deeper can yield huge leaps in efficiency.

Every case is different so if you'd like to know more, please email me. I would love to call you and discuss how I might be able to help you.

The aaahhh effect is that feeling you get when you walk into a freshly tidied space. You take a deep breath of satisfaction at the sense of space and calm - aaahhh.
