The kick-start session is designed to get you acquainted with working with a professional organiser (me!) while getting stuck in. It’s a hands-on session where we’ll be working side by side on one of your “problem” areas.
Pick an area (your wardrobe, desk, or fridge) and we’ll tackle it with a combination of decluttering, organising, and putting systems in place that you’ve never thought of.
By the end of this session we’ll either have transformed the space entirely or put the structure in place for you to be confidently in control.
We’ll also discuss your next move and ideas for change. After the session, I’ll start having an idea of how you operate in your space and what we can do to transform your space and streamline the way you live.
Before we meet
We start with a 20-minute phone discussion. It’s essential that we are both comfortable with each other before the process begins. And as I know that a lot of people are not familiar with Professional Organisers, this also gives you the chance to ask any questions that are on your mind.
Once we’ve had our call, we’ll set up a time for me to come to your home for the kick-start session. You don’t need to do any work prior to this session. As a matter of fact, it’s important that you leave your space the way it currently is so that I see the way you deal with it on a daily basis.
During our 3-hour session
We’ll go through your challenges, vision for your home and establish your goals for you to work on in and outside of our time working together.
Then we’ll do a tour of your space (you can show me only what you’re comfortable with) and we’ll get to work on one of your problem areas – a wardrobe, desk or fridge is a good place to start.
Alternatively, you may want to pick up my brain to get some ideas on how to declutter and organise your home on your own, or planning your move, and get the motivation to start your organising journey.
After the session
Things will “come up” during our session. Maybe you’ll feel emotional or resistant to let go of some of your possessions. Maybe you’ll feel completely rejuvenated and excited for the next step. Maybe you’ll procrastinate going further. Whatever you feel is completely normal and part of the process.
I am here to help you through it so you can stay accountable and make the lifestyle shift you want to make. I will be by your side until you reach your goals. After our session, I will send you an action plan and share relevant tools where needed.
Nathalie helped de-clutter several areas which were really getting me down: my walk-in wardrobe was overflowing, the under-stairs storage crammed and inaccessible, the home office desk covered in paper, not to mention the kids’ toys ever expanding and out of control.
I found Nathalie’s approach very refreshing – constructive and not judgemental. We cleared an enormous quantity of unused stuff and I’m now the proud owner of a well-organised tidy house for the first time. It’s a great feeling!
