I feel privileged to work alongside people helping them to create more of what they want for themselves and seeing wonderful spaces emerge before our eyes. I am always delighted to hear from clients about how the experience was for them. Here are some recent testimonials.
I’ve always gathered a lot of stuff around me- I have a lot of interests and things fascinate me. I was feeling overwhelmed by my stuff and easily felt a sense of shame about it.
Claire brought with her a delightful lightness and energy and was entirely non-judgemental. The crux of her thought was Does it work for you? Do you love it? Is it useful? Does it serve a purpose? We went through my house room by room. In this gentle manner I was able to part with a lot of redundant stuff and organise what was left in an effective way. I was amazed by the clearing we did... everything sorted with thoroughness and enjoyment.
A space becomes a delight to be enjoyed rather than burdened and muddled with ‘things’. As much as I let go of things- I came to really value and appreciate my belongings, noticing their intrinsic use and beauty more.
It’s a real transformation not only in my home but in myself.
It is extraordinary but somehow things resonate. Everything connects with past friends, events and happenings in your life, and for that reason, throwing out stuff feels like throwing away your life.
You need expert help, you really do, and it would be hard to find someone with more tact, expertise and understanding than Claire.
Thanks to her, I no longer feel burdened by too much stuff. I feel emotionally and psychologically lighter and, I can even find things!

After 26 years we decided to downsize our home. Claire was calm, kind and quietly tenacious, posing skillful and pertinent questions. We greatly appreciated her management of being employed by a couple who did not always agree! Her clarity, overview and wisdom was a gift.

I enlisted the help of Claire when the thought of de-cluttering my overstuffed wardrobe started to overwhelm me. Her people skills and her organizational talents together with her calm, patient and non-judgmental nature transformed what began as a daunting prospect into a positive, fun, and uplifting experience. The wardrobe was lighter, I felt lighter as a result and I was inspired to continue the theme of shedding.

Claire helped me declutter my studio. I was anxious about the whole process because I am a textile designer/maker and I DON'T LIKE THROWING THINGS AWAY! I can justify keeping ANYTHING, believe me!
She held my hand, she formulated a plan with me, she encouraged me to take breaks and to walk away when it became too much. She also helped me to sort everything into piles, make lists and decisions. She let me cry, listened to me rant, and guided me through what was at times a painful process.
I cannot recommend her work highly enough. The experience was not just about decluttering. Claire actually made me feel much happier about not only letting go of things I didn't need, but also about hanging onto the things I felt still had a purpose and organising them so that I could find them easily.
At no time did she make me feel guilty about who I am or bully me into getting rid of stuff! She provided a gentle, clear, healthy path through my process of letting go (and hanging on!).
