Often the emails that I receive from interested clients are ones that contain the words “HELP!” or in this case: “I need help urgently and seriously.” My client was feeling “paralyzed by mess” so that she was unable to work in her office. After a number of life transitions (including selling her home + moving as well as changing jobs), objects + papers had accumulated into unmanageable piles and being at home created a feeling of dread due to the chaos.
In one four hour session, we were able to tackle to majority of the office space and whip it back into shape. This included going through all the piles and boxes in the office space, sorting + classifying papers as well as sending things to the recycling and shredding bin. A new inbox system was created to tackle action items so that they get accomplished. New home and zones were created on both bookshelves to organize and contain the wide range of work + personal files.
As I do after each session, I sent along a “homework” list of items for my client to tackle into between sessions. This included removing the single bookshelf on the wall behind the desk to create a separate space for music. The end result is a peaceful and inspiring space where creative work will definitely be able to occur!
