What a Decluttering Coach can do for you that you can’t do alone

July 5, 2021

Did you know? We have a Decluttering Club Coaches Network with a select group of coaches who are ready to assist you in your decluttering projects!

You may be wondering why you'd want to work with a decluttering coach, 1-on-1, in the first place.

What can a decluttering coach do for a client that she wouldn't do on her own?

Well, we've asked our coaches just that... and here is what they said.

What a Decluttering Coach Can Do for You

Linda Bee

As a Decluttering Coach, I have the ability to see anything a client shares with me through a different lens. We all look at our own space with preconceived notions of good and bad. I love reframing the struggles into opportunities. Then I am able to assist the client with a plan to create a stress-free, calm and orderly environment.

In order to maintain a clutter-free home, we need to get to the root of why things pile up in the first place. As a Coach, I have experience in observing what does and doesn't work for people thus enabling me to give constructive suggestions that the client might not have considered before. I assist people when they feel stuck. I offer action-oriented steps to get to whatever success looks like to the client.

A decluttering coach sees the bigger picture and is more removed from all the emotions and shame that we attach to our stuff. It helps to have someone in your corner to help you think through the parts that trip you up, see where you are holding yourself back, and empower you to change your perspective to help you reach your goal.

As a coach, it's important for me to provide a compassionate, judgment-free space where my clients feel safe enough to talk about their struggles. There's nothing better than hearing the way they light up when they accomplish something that at one point in their life felt so incredibly overwhelming, but they conquered it!

At some point in time during our decluttering journeys, we have all felt the need for help, a different opinion or motivation in achieving our goals. Decluttering Coaches are here for these exact reasons: to listen, give feedback, provide accountability and reveal new perspectives in your home and your habits that you may not have noticed before.

As a trained Decluttering Coach, I have the necessary experience and knowledge to help you reach your decluttering goals faster and with less overwhelm. Together, we will discuss planning, motivation, obstacles and strategies that work for you and your family to help you continue on your journey.

Whether you are just beginning, in a messy middle or overwhelmed with a huge project, a Declutter Coach can help you stay inspired and achieve your goals more efficiently in all stages of your decluttering journey.

Like editing your own writing, "editing" - aka, decluttering - your own home is filled with emotions and blindspots. Sometimes the piles have been there so long you don't even see them. Or you DO see them, but don’t really see “things.” Maybe you actually see shame and regret. Maybe you see memories - beautiful or terrible. Maybe you just see a mountain you can’t possibly climb alone.

As a Decluttering Coach, and as someone who has personally battled chronic clutter all my life, I will help you step back and see your things as just that - THINGS. There will be no judgment, no shame, no mistakes - only curiosity, learning, and progress. We will discuss how you want each space in your home to function to suit who you are TODAY, and who you want to grow to be.

And all those big, overwhelming emotions? Those we will shred up into tiny, actionable steps that you can take daily to achieve and maintain your vision for your home. And every step of the way, I’ll be there to cheer for (and help you see for yourself!) ALL your victories, big and small.

As a decluttering coach, I can help you go from feeling overwhelmed, to feeling calm in your space. I will help you see your space, your stuff and how you feel about your home in a different light. When you see a mess, I see potential to create a space you love. I will remind you that you get to choose and when you get stuck I will show you how much you have accomplished and help you get unstuck.

Having Decluttered my own home, I know the attachments, the shame, the obstacles that stop us and I will share all I have learned throughout the process. My goal is to help you create a space that you love using pockets of time and simple tips. I will help you form a plan to create a space where you feel happy calm and proud of your home.
