General Information

Welcome to my profile. I hope we can work together soon. I have been helping people declutter and organise their homes in Yorkshire for over 5 years and have had hundreds of happy customers. I’m an empathetic & warm person. I do not have my own agenda when it comes to supporting you. Instead, I will listen carefully to how you feel and help you work out what you need to transform your home. I can do the hard physical work for you too if need be.

Fundamentally, I believe that that is a clear link between an organised, tidy space & emotional well-being. Decluttering & organising helps you let go of everything that is weighing you down. It gives you more time. space & joy in your life.

I’m always happy to chat to you about what you need and how I can help. So don’t hesitate to give me a call on 07961 77 04 52 or email kate@atidymind.co.uk

Qualified Life Coach
Being a qualified coach (since 2003), I incorporate this into my work with clients. It’s as much about changing your habits and mindset as it is about the practical decluttering and organising.

Psychology Background
I have over a decade’s worth of experience in the mental health and well-being sector. I’m a very supportive and compassionate person & I understand that you are probably overwhelmed. Rest assured, it’s possible to make your home into your calm place and the sanctuary you deserve.

Helping Charities
The donating side of the job is very important to me and I ensure that any items you let go of are mindfully donated. Not just to charity shops but to refuges, homeless shelters, pet sanctuaries & other local projects.

Professional Organising
I have a lot of knowledge and experience about organising techniques, systems, habits and storage. I write about them on my blog www.atidymind.co.uk/blog, regularly contribute to magazines and websites and deliver workshops too. I also design planners and checklists, which I always give to my clients for free if they need them.

I’m really looking forward to helping you bring more calm and order to your home.



Specialist expertise/experience

  • I’m happy to have run my own decluttering, organising & life coaching business for 5 years – it’s definitely my passion!
  • I mainly help people declutter & organise their homes face to face but I can also help virtually too, either by phone or video link
  • I qualified as a Life Coach in 2003 so I use these skills to teach clients new habits & mindset.
  • I have a lot of experience helping clients move house (declutter beforehand, pack & unpack) & I have completed an accredited home staging and styling course.
  • I have 5 years experience in working with people with hoarding issues, have completed Level 1 and 2 training through Hoarding Disorders UK and have 12 years’ experience working in the mental health sector.
  • I offer a productivity coaching service to help you make more of your time.
  • I have trained other professional organisers due to running my own franchising programme and this covers everything from setting up the business to marketing & social media. I continue to mentor them whilst they run successful businesses.

Kate is AMAZING. She makes no judgement at all, so don't feel embarrassed to have her in your home no matter how messy it is. She really cares about helping & has made a big difference to my life.


She listened to the challenges I have working from a small space. She identified how this could be improved. Then put an action plan together to have me organise my space and time.


Within a couple of hours, Kate helped me to work out what we needed to let go of & how to organise our belongings so that we actually know where things are! She also gave me great ideas for storage.
