Green and Tidy

Helping people all over the world declutter and create homes they love

A little bit about me

I help people all over the world, declutter FOREVER and create homes they love, homes that support them to live the lives they want.

If you’ve arrived at this page having joined the Green & Tidy community, welcome! I’m looking forward to supporting you to create a home you love.

If you haven’t yet joined, do so here.  As well as regular emails containing tips, insights and motivational ideas about decluttering and low impact living, you’ll get a free masterclass in decluttering and staying clutter-free.

Decluttering and organising run through me like Brighton through seaside rock. Few things make me happier than getting rid of unnecessary stuff, finding better ways to organise my belongings, freeing up space in my home, or creating new storage space. I positively glow with happiness for days after I reorganise a cupboard or drawer.

Through Green and Tidy, these skills and experience are available to you in your home. I’ll train, coach and support you to declutter and organise your home so it works for you.

Want to know how I got here?

This is my story…

I moved into my house in 1999 and, by 2006, I was running out of space.

Whenever I bought something, my pleasure in the new thing was tempered with anxiety about where I was going to put it when I got it home. All my cupboards and drawers were rammed full.

And by the way, I’m talking about a three bedroom house which I’d managed to fill single-handed!

I’d buy something and then, weeks or months later, find I’d wasted my money because I already had one.

It got so stressful, I decided I had to tackle it.

So I systematically decluttered my whole house, developing a simple 10-step decluttering process as I did so.

Then I decided to help other people benefit from my experience, drawing on my Psychology degree from the University of Sussex and many years of  Landmark training in personal development coaching.

So, in 2010, I set up Green and Tidy so I can reach people all over the world.

I talk through my straightforward decluttering process in this video.

Now I’ve got a whole load of ways I can help you. Check them out here.

The beauty of my innovative approach is that I don’t even need to come into your home or office. If you don’t live near me (in the South of England) or you can’t afford to have a professional organiser visit your home or office, I can still work with you – I’ve developed a way to train, coach and support you at a distance.

  • Hey Rachel

    You have no idea how jealous I am of you! Moving to Brighton is in my list of things I have to do before i’m 45, it’s my spiritual home!

      I have a friend who wants to move from Wales to Brighton (remember the mature male belly dancer?)…looking for simple cheap accommodation and opportunities to use his theatrical, healing, magical and people skills. Can we recycle this lovely man from one county to the next with freedom and ease?

  • Hi Oshi. I’m sure we can. If he emails me a short summary of what he’s looking for (kind of accommodation, price, timing, what sort of work opportunities he’s seeking), I’ll willingly post it to various forums.

    Rachel, I’m a great fan of decluttering but I noticed that once I’d done mine it meant I couldn’t then avoid a making decisions on the more difficult things in life! A great process. Keith

      Good to hear from you Keith. And you’re so right! Clutter is bound up with our ‘things to do’ list. That’s why my system involves clients dedicating time both to sorting their clutter AND to taking the actions they identify as a result. When we declutter our physical stuff, we declutter our mind. That’s what’s so great about it.
