“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
– William Morris

Paul Barber - The Clutter Coach
‘The reason why clutter clearing is so effective is that while you are putting your external world in order there are corresponding changes going on internally. Everything around you, especially your home environment, mirrors your inner self. So by changing your home you are also changing the possibilities in your own life.’
‘Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui’.
Clutter takes many forms. It can include physical possessions, such as clothes, household items, books, papers, photos and magazines, but can also extend to mental, spiritual and emotional clutter.
Dealing with your physical clutter can be a key starting point for you to address other levels of non-physical clutter that are holding you back in life.
I will support you to change your relationship with your clutter and give you the confidence to solve the problem and move on in life.
I will provide you with the tools and skills to declutter and organise your home, and suggest new habits that will help you ensure the problem doesn’t return, but will never force you to dispose of anything against your wishes.
I have now made an important start to clearing my home which I had not been able to do on my own. Before meeting Paul, I found it an immensely impossible task to attempt, despite often being offered help by members of my family.
Firstly I had to be able to talk and say things that I had kept hidden from others for approx.13 yrs. His way to help enabled me to go forward. Paul also showed the importance of having achievable goals.
Paul was understanding when I became distressed when talking about certain issues. He initially gave me confidence in believing that together, we were going to achieve my goals and enable me to have a happier existence. When I first made contact with him, I remember thinking absolute relief, that at last someone was going to help me.
I felt good, Paul was very good at explaining the process and I really got stuck in (which I didn't think I would as I was quite apprehensive to start).
I liked that it helped me get started. I appreciated having someone to help in a non judgemental way and who didn't seem to be overwhelmed by the task at hand.
