One of the biggest blocks that people have in decluttering their homes is procrastination and not knowing where to start.
For these reasons, people continue to live in homes which they find stressful, cluttered and unmanageable, with specific aspects that they do not like. Having identified these, they feel a failure for not being able to resolve them. In addition, it is likely to be a person’s inability to make decisions about their possessions, combined with a lack of organisational skills which makes tackling the issue alone, incredibly difficult.
A Professional Organiser is someone who:
is a good listener and always respectful when working in a clients home;
A good professional organiser is also non-judgmental and compassionate. They must have excellent people skills to enable them to work effectively with each client, and devise the best way to work together.
A Professional Organiser’s own life-time of experiences, can help them be empathetic to the challenges many clients face:
For my part, having now lost both of my parents, I have personal experience of bereavment, which is quite a unique experience. This has really helped me when working with client’s who have experienced a recent loss & may be struggling as a result.
Having also had to help my father move after the death of my mother & his wife of 54 years, I fully understand the sensitivity that is required in such a situation.
Having brought up a family of three, I have direct experiences of the challenges placed on a family home at all stages of that journey.
All these experiences really help me in my work with a broad range of clients.
The specific role of a professional organiser
While the cartoon above makes a valid point that many people struggle to declutter themselves, there is much more to being a professional organiser than just opting for three bins marked “keep,” “trash,” and “donate.”
When working with clients I offer the following choices for the disposal of items:
In short, sometimes you need an objective, experienced opinion to help you move forward.
Professional organisers can offer that opinion, or help you discover options you wouldn’t have considered on your own.
