I have always loved being organised and organising so this is my perfect job! I really enjoy meeting and helping clients of all backgrounds declutter and organise their homes. I have a passion for helping people simplify their living spaces and I do believe a tidy house helps create a tidy mind. All of my work is strictly private, confidential and non judgemental and I am a member of APDO (the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers UK).
It has been such a fantastic experience; Jo is amazing, the way she goes through everything is so logical and methodical that it breaks what seems like an overwhelming job down into manageable chunks. She’s also incredibly respectful and careful with everything as she goes through it and categorises it and helps you work through what you want to keep, recycle, give away, sell or dump. I’d been going around in circles trying to do everything at once and then running out of time and shoving it all back in cupboards again, but with Jo’s help we’ve worked our way through room by room and the change has been sustainable - it won’t drift back because there’s finally a place *for* everything rather than lots of places *with* everything. I used to love organising things but the build up of ‘stuff’ from 15 years in the house, made it an overwhelming task and something that was a constant source of worry and stress. But I’m back to enjoying it now and the weight of everything, has been lifted, which is a huge relief. What Jo’s done is much more than declutter my house, she’s decluttered my life as well. Jo is so passionate about what she does as well as being incredibly good at it and she’s lovely, kind and genuinely cares. I would highly recommend Declutter on Demand and Jo, the process has transformed the way I feel about my home and how I live in it. Thank you!
My teenage daughter's bedroom was drowning in clutter. It was a constant battle between us and it seemed time to get some help! That help came in the form of Joanne, an impartial and objective decluttering expert. Having a scheduled date and time to tackle it was just the beginning. By the two of them systematically going through each area of my daughter's room, her room was transformed. Introducing order to my daughter's room resulted in a sense of security - she was less anxious and felt more in control. Jo is honest, trustworthy, has a great sense of humour and such a lovely way with her. She made a task both my daughter and I dread seem manageable and achievable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
We recently used Jo for a client who needed assistance decluttering their property prior to moving. Jo was extremely helpful and her approach to the client was professional and empathetic and she gave the client the support needed to successfully organise their belongings in preparation for the move. We would definitely use the service again.
The lovely Jo helped me so much when I recently moved house, I was in hospital with my little girl who was sadly very unwell so unable to do anything my self so thankfully I found Jo and she took all the stress away and helped make everything calm and tidy for when we got to come home. Life saver 10/10!
Jo helped me for a whole day going through my mountains of clothes, messy cupboard and gave good suggestions on what I can continue to do and work on. I was devastated with my move overseas when boxes arrived and didn’t get the right help first. Jo is a GEM! Brilliant, efficient and goes far and beyond. Can’t wait to book her for another session to work on the lounge.
I cannot recommend Jo’s services more highly. Jo has been absolutely amazing in providing practical and emotional support for decluttering in all its forms. I would recommend Jo to anyone wanting help with organisation and to those who are dealing with hoarding issues. Her sensitive and cheerful approach and great energy have been a huge asset and Jo has taught me the skills so I can apply them too. Amazing service and I thoroughly recommend.
If you’re like me you’ve watched all the personal organization shows (Home Edit, Marie Kondo, etc) and tried to implement the hacks yourself to no great success. For me the difficulty was that I’m only one person, and needed someone with greater organizational vision and fresh eyes. That person came in the form of Jo, she was a true visionary, we were able to put a new effective organizational system together in my bedroom, that created space and efficiency. We took a few tips from Marie Kondo re. decluttering + letting go of old items, and the whole time Jo was gentle, kind, personable and completely non-judgmental. When you’re organizing something as personal as your bedroom that’s just the touch you need. Five months later and my room is still clean and organized due to Jo’s help and even when things veer off path after a long week, cleaning has never been easier due to the system Jo set in place! Honestly, she made my life so much better, especially amidst WFH and a pandemic when most of my time is now spent in this space. Thanks for everything Jo, you’re amazing!
I hate packing and unpacking but Jo brought lightness and encouragement to the whole process. I was sitting around boxes for days and within a mere 6 hours with Jo I had almost everything unpacked and organised and even labelled! She was really helpful in her ideas as well. Still have a bit of work to do but the systems she has put in place in my house are all very logical and helpful thus far. Jo was an utter life saver!
