What is a Professional Organiser?
Professional organisers help you take control of your environment and time. I share my expertise with you to help you achieve your organisational goals – your wardrobe, your entire house or even your business.
Which suburbs do you service?
I am based in Eltham, a beautiful Melbourne suburb, and am happy to service most suburbs of Melbourne. If you live outside this area, please give me a call to discuss options or book a virtual consultation session.
What happens at the first session?
We go through your space and I help you define a vision of the ‘new’ room. Once the goals are set, you will receive an action plan. It will be entirely up to you whether you choose to do it yourself, or require further help to make your vision a reality.
What is AAPO and is it important that you are a member?
AAPO is the Australasian Association of Professional Organisers, the peak industry body in Australia and New Zealand. As an AAPO member, I adhere to a Code of Conduct, designed to protect clients.
Do I need to buy products and do you sell them?
You may have everything you need already, other times you might have to buy something to give your possessions a home. I don’t sell products but am happy to advise you on products that work for your situation and where you can get them.
Do you throw out my stuff?
No, absolutely not. You are the one who ultimately decides what stays and what goes. I will never rush you but guide and support you.
Do you do the work for me?
I prefer to work with you in most cases because I can not make decisions for you. However, there might be parts of the work that I can do for you, for example filing papers.
What results can I expect and how long will it take?
This very much depends on your situation. A 3-hour session might be enough to declutter and organise a small space such as a wardrobe but won’t be long enough for an entire house. A big project will need several sessions and the initial needs assessment and plan of action will include a very rough estimate of how long we can expect it to take. Of course, fewer sessions will be needed if you can work on the project by yourself between our sessions.
What do I have to do?
To get the most out of it, you need to be committed to the process, open to change and also willing to develop new habits.
How much does your service cost?
I work at an hourly rate of $65 per hour. Payment is due by the end of each session and is accepted in cash, direct bank deposit or PayPal, and you will receive a receipt. The minimum booking for in-person consultations is 2 hours. Virtual consultation sessions can be booked in 30 minute increments.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
Yes – I make a commitment to help you and expect your commitment as well. If you let me know 48 hours before the appointment, it gives me the chance to fill the spot. Otherwise, the session will have to be paid in full.
