the value of insight

When you get clear about why your clutter is holding you back, you can finally let it go and create the home you love.

There is a lot more to clutter and the home than the merely practical. The secret to creating a calm and nurturing home is to uncover the psychological reasons that lie beneath your clutter, and to understand that what is blocking you in your home and your life is often the key to moving forwards. Unlocking some of the meaning your possessions may hold can free you to say goodbye to what you no longer need, while keeping your precious memories intact.

Our homes have stories to tell. Like our dreams, the spaces we inhabit and the objects within them reflect many aspects of our lives and our inner selves. As you become more able to really see your home and your possessions, and to listen to what they are telling you, you will gain some profound insights.

This quest for insight and meaning is at the core of my decluttering services.
