I offer premium, bespoke decluttering and personal organising services for people in north London who are unsure how to declutter. My background as an interior designer, along with training in psychotherapy, means I have a unique combination of skills and experience. I work as a personal declutter coach, dealing with each person’s mindset and individual situation, not just their clutter.
‘Helen has a rare gift for embracing the practical and mundane with skilful insight, which sheds light into the places where it matters most. By addressing the long-term, intractable niggles that have been sapping precious life force over a long period of time, this work helps to liberate people so energy is available once again.’
Having seen the positive and transformative effects that decluttering has had on my clients’ lives, I understand that decluttering not only meets a person’s need for physical organisation, but also for emotional and spiritual order. Using great empathy and understanding I support people all over north London to restore their inner calm by showing them how to declutter and create wellbeing, peace and order in their home.
In 2005 I set up Quiet Room Designs (now Ministry of Calm) and have worked with the NHS, Marie Curie Cancer Care, The Ministry of Justice and Guardian News and Media. In my work on quiet rooms, I recognise the value of providing a special place to retreat to that facilitates the journey into stillness, mindfulness or meditation.
I began my career as a painter and fine artist, through this developing my interest in creating calming and inspiring spaces. Some of my paintings feature on the BBC arts website.
