Specialist expertise/experience

I have 4 years experience in working with people with hoarding issues, have completed training through Hoarding Disorders UK and have 12 years experience working in the mental health sector. I regularly work with referrals from social services, councils and support agencies.

I qualified as a Life Coach in 2003 and incorporate life coaching into my work with clients.

I have completed the CHSSP Certified Home Staging and Styling Property Course and often work with clients in order to get their properties ready to sell. I also offer a packing/unpacking service.

I regularly deliver public and corporate ‘wellness’ workshops on decluttering and organising as well as individual talks to groups ranging from WI gatherings to corporate companies.

General Information

Hello, thank you for stopping by & I very much hope we meet in person soon. I’m Kate & as A Tidy Mind, I will work with you in a completely empathetic and supportive way. I show the utmost respect for your home & your possessions & I listen to exactly what you want so we can achieve it together.

If you’re feeling very overwhelmed, then look no further because I specialise in working with people in this category. As a client you will be treated as an individual & I take the time to connect with you. I cover nearly all of Yorkshire & can sometimes travel further afield.

* Any client of A Tidy Mind gets lifetime FREE access to a huge range of online organisational planners & checklists from www.tidyhabits.co.uk *

I help with all aspects of decluttering & organising, from paperwork, to wardrobes, kitchens, lofts, garages & of course the decluttering of bad habits & toxic thoughts. I love being part of your ‘fresh start’ – so many people go on this journey when they’re ready for a new beginning.

I also have extensive experience in preparing you for a house move, staging the property, packing & unpacking – moving home does NOT have to be stressful.

As I’m also a qualified Life Coach, mentoring & teaching new habits are also important aspects of the service. I’m a ‘storage geek’ too & am trained in home styling.

Within my company, there is a standalone service for ad hoc PA work, should you require this.

Supporting charities is extremely important to me so I go out of my way to donate to a wide variety of local & national projects.

Having worked with hundreds of clients over 4 years, I’m experienced enough to work compassionately with the elderly, those with hoarding disorder & other mental & physical health conditions.

I have brilliant colleagues in my team, meaning that wherever your location, you shouldn’t have to wait too long to start work.

You will always be offered a FREE initial consultation before you book any sessions, to ensure we’re the right fit. The rates are between £30 and £35 per hour, depending on how many sessions booked (payment plans offered). Please see the website for more info, where you’ll also find FAQ, the blog & testimonials.

Take the first step & give me a call today for a chat or send an email – I’m really looking forward to hearing from you.


I procrastinated hugely over using the services of A Tidy Mind. I wish I hadn't because my nerves were immediately put at ease. What I thought was an impossible task was approached sensitively .


I has suffered a bereavement and felt overwhelmed on many levels. I was guided through but I felt in control the whole time. It was an amazing experience.


I'm a busy mum juggling what feels like a thousand balls. I now feel I can run my home effectively, It's not about achieving perfection but I finally feel happy at home.
