What is a "professional organizer"?

A professional organizer works with clients providing expert organizational help in a non-judgemental, confidential and ethical manner, which allows you to get yourself organized in a way that is maintainable in the long-term.


Do professional organizers take any training?

Yes they do. I am a Chronic Disorganization Specialist and the training I have taken allows me to better serve my clients with enhanced knowledge and a greater range of experience of different client situations, strategies and solutions. Trained professional organizers will be happy to explain what professional development they have completed and how it will make a positive difference to your experience as a client. Although anyone can call themselves a professional organizer it is important to check out their credentials, training and professional memberships. See Home Organizing or Business Organizing for more information.

Why are your organizing sessions recommended to be only 3 - 5 hours long?

Organizing effectively can be surprisingly tiring! Most people have the energy for approx. 3-5 hours in one day.


How do I pay for organizing services?

Payment for organizing services is due at the end of each session by cash or cheque, unless your business requires invoicing. Receipts provided on request.


Do you charge for travel time?

There is no travel charge for travel to and from free assessments. Travel time is charged for journeys to and from organizing sessions at a rate of $40 per hour.


What if I need to cancel a session?

Of course I understand that life gets busy and plans change. Please just call with as much notice as you can so that we can reschedule. Repeated cancellations at short notice may result in a charge (full details in client agreement).


Do I need to buy any storage products in advance?

I would recommend waiting, as most people have more storage containers than they realise and it is better to invest in storage solutions after you have de-cluttered and re-organized. It is a good idea to have some garbage bags and/or cardboard boxes handy to hold unwanted items.


Do you provide cleaning services?

No, I am not a cleaner. I do light cleaning (such as wiping down surfaces, vacuuming, sweeping) when appropriate during the organizing process, but if you require more thorough cleaning services I would suggest hiring a cleaner after getting de-cluttered and re-organized.


Do you take away items I no longer want?

For liability reasons this is not a service I provide, but depending on your needs I can provide you with further information on the best way to recycle or dispose of your unwanted items.
