Our professional development team provide training and support to help members start and grow their business.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers since 2004 and openly thank our past and present members for their voluntary contributions in making APDO a membership body to be proud of.
We would like to introduce our current stars of the show:
Lisa has been running her company Clutter Free Living Ltd in Bedfordshire since 2016. She is a registered Social Worker and specialises in working with people with hoarding behaviour, ADHD and mental and physical health challenges.
She loves being part of the training team, working with her Professional Organising colleagues to spread the word about our amazing industry and support new members into the field of Professional Decluttering and Organising. Lisa is also the Membership Director for APDO and a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care.
Lynda has been decluttering and organising professionally since 2012 when she started Tidy Rooms.
She has 10 years experience as a Charity Volunteer Manager and Community Fundraiser, as well as Corporate experience in Facilities Management and PA roles.
Lynda has a degree in Information Management and is a logical thinker who loves to get alongside people to support them with their practical and emotional needs.
She loves being part of the APDO community and enjoys staying connected through blogging and facilitating the local APDO network.
Kate has recently joined APDO’s training team whilst continuing in her role as Head of Social Media. Kate has a background of delivering group work and has trained, and continues to mentor, her team of franchisees for her business – A Tidy Mind. She’s been in the industry since 2015 and has volunteered for APDO since 2016.
She has always had a strong passion for training, believing that it’s good to continue to develop knowledge and keep learning. Alongside running her businesses and being a mum, she is also training to be a psychotherapist.
Kate loves the decluttering and organising industry, is keen to share what she has learnt and is exited to be part of others’ journeys.
Caroline recently completed a masters in positive psychology and coaching psychology and loves applying her learning to anything connected with our industry. An enthusiastic member of the training team, and proud member of APDO since 2014, she enjoys meeting and working with anyone who is interested to know more about professional organising.
Caroline set up Room to Think in 2013. She focused her MSC research on the association between clutter and wellbeing. Alongside professional organising, Caroline also has a coaching practice. The learning and reflection within both practices feed and support each other. She lives in East London, looks like a vegetarian and enjoys walking, laughing, debating, learning.
