Gail has had over 15 years experience and is an expert in helping people to declutter and get organised, so they can start to enjoy their homes and life again!
Please call just for an informal chat or to ask any questions that you may have.
Gail covers all of the Yorkshire area and is prepared to travel.
Hello, I'm Gail and I've been helping people to declutter and organise their homes now for 15 years. I am a very down to earth Yorkshire girl and have a real passion for what I do. Nothing phases me, I've seen it all before. I am totally non-judgemental. I am very hands on and hardworking, but also discreet and have respect for your home and possessions. Making the initial decision to let someone come into your home can be very daunting, I understand this and I am always sensitive to your circumstances.
Although I love interior design, I feel that decluttering and organisation is my vocation in life.
“I get so much enjoyment out of it. I just love the sense of the new space that appears afterwards, replacing the chaos with calm, and the clarity this brings.”
I have moved house a total of 11 times during the last 20 years, so I am somewhat of an expert at organising belongings into all different shapes and sizes of house, and consequently become very proficient at keeping clutter in check.
In my early career I spent six years working as a Legal Executive in a Solicitors office and I am also a qualified Nursery Nurse, having worked in a variety of different schools and nurseries. I now have two teenage children of my own.
I moved to Lyon, France, in 2006 with my family and lived there for four years. I studied French and also did some marketing/copywriting for a European Company. I now live with my family close to York.
I have a friendly, caring manner, with a gift for putting people at their ease. I am a conscientious organiser, as well as having a keen eye and flare for seeing what needs doing in any given space.
Gail lives near Tadcaster and covers the north of England.
I am happy to travel ... so far I have travelled as far as, Sunderland, Grimsby and Kendal.
There are many reasons why you might require help to declutter your home,
The Declutter Company will help you to declutter and organise your home, which will allow you to:-
Simplify your life ... clearing away the mess also clears the mind
Relax ... an organised home means an organised mind ... is good for the soul
Locate items ... you are able to find things quickly and easily, which saves you money because you know exactly what you've got so you don't duplicate
Make the best of the space that you have
Our home design service will enable you to enjoy your home even more, making it somewhere you want to spend time and relax, somewhere you can be proud of and can invite friends and family
Clean much easier
We organise a day and time that we can work together, for as long or short a time
as you want, when we won't be interrupted and can concentrate on the job in hand.
I can't do this without you because I need to go through items with you and work
out the best storage system to suit you and your lifestyle.
Please have lots of bin liners ready.
When I arrive we can decide on the areas which are priority and work from there.
I can help you with storage ideas, to make the most of the space.
I can help you to decide which items you should keep, which items you might give
away or sell, and which items to throw away. There is no pressure for you to part
with things you don't want to.
Decluttering can be very tiring both physically and mentally, so don't try to get it
all done in one day.
I am very discreet, no vehicle will turn up advertising decluttering.
Barbara from Kirkbymoorside
Gail has been a fantastic help getting my house free of clutter.
Gail arrives totally committed to the task in hand, her concentration is unrelenting and this means good progress is made quickly. She has the energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment for decluttering, organising and creating space that I lack. Once I faced the fact that I needed help and gave Gail the lead, I saw a brilliant transformation. In the first few hours, 12 sacks of clutter went out the door. Another occasion my mass of papers was neatly filed.
Gail helps you decide which room to start in and is respectful of all your opinions about your possessions. I have a disability so was not able to physically help much; this did not deter progress as Gail picked up and placed everything according to the answers I gave.
Professional decluttering has an expense to it, but I find Gail worth every penny for the help she gives and the happy sense of well-being after regaining space and control of the house.
P.S. I am thinking of employing you to help my sister who lives in Lincolnshire, who is as bad if not worse than I am! Do you happen to be free 28th/29th July or 4th/5th August? Cheers, Barbara
Jacqueline from Cleethorpes
I am happy to give you a testimonial.
I moved to a smaller property and needed to de-clutter. I did not know where to start. Gail was respectful of my home and belongings. She was a pleasure to work with and nothing was too much trouble. I am delighted with the result.
Hope everything goes well.
Michelle from York
Thank you Gail.
With your help I've turned around my disorganised home, and life!
You have made such a difference and I now love my home again.
I would certainly recommend you to anyone.
Jenny from Pocklington
Gail proved to be a real help when I was drowning in stuff. She suggested working first in the kitchen, a more " neutral " room, yet one that was used frequently by the whole family. We set to work together, and I decided what I wanted to keep, what I would give to charity, and what needed to be thrown away, all with firm but friendly encouragement from Gail to be ruthless. It worked! Two hours later, after we'd both cleared and then cleaned surfaces and cupboards my kitchen looked a lot brighter and welcoming devoid of clutter, and my heart felt a lot lighter too. Thank you so much Gail!
