Clare from Darlington (Decluttering)
Karen has worked with me via Zoom over a few months, de-cluttering and reorganising my office at home. It’s been a lot of hard work, and I’m thrilled with the results, which I could never have achieved without her.
My office had been a “no go” area, a chaotic pile of boxes and crates full of jumbled papers, amongst other things, covering the desk, shelves and floor. It had accumulated over years, and because I couldn’t use the office it had spread into every room, so there was no escape!
I used to waste time and energy looking for things, hiding the mess whenever someone was coming over, and moving stuff around in order to clean.
I felt constantly burdened by all the untidiness and disorganisation. I also felt ashamed, embarrassed and inadequate. I gave myself a hard time.
I’d tried many times to tackle the job but each time I found it so daunting and overwhelming that I gave up.
Karen has worked with me patiently, giving endless support and encouragement. Her warm and friendly personality, along with a great sense of humour, have helped me to face the challenge one step at a time. Together we made a plan and set goals. Our regular Zoom sessions, along with homework in between, kept me motivated. Karen praised even my smallest achievements. She has taught me organisational skills and has shared all sorts of useful practical tips. Karen also brings her knowledge as a therapist into her de cluttering work, which I found invaluable in dealing with the difficult emotions involved.
Now not only my office, but my whole house feels more orderly and efficient. I can find things quickly, clean easily, and I no longer panic when expecting a visitor!
In a nutshell, with Karen’s guidance and support I’ve managed to achieve something I never thought possible, and it’s transformed my life for the better. So, if you’re struggling with your clutter I would highly recommend getting in touch with her.
Melina from Ore (EFT)
Karen is such a lovely lady and amazing at EFT, she really gets to the root causes of problems in your life.
I’ve had varies therapies before but with karen I discovered some real revelations to the patterns in my life.
I would highly recommend her.
Karen’s sense of fun and humour enhance her EFT practice, which helps people let go of what no longer serves them.

Sharon from Rye (Clutter Club)
I picked up a flyer a while back and decided to find out more in a group setting.
Clutter Club is a fun, safe environment in which we can all share the trials & tribulations we are experiencing with regard to the clutter in our lives and minds.
We all help & support one another and enjoy the camaraderie, tea & cakes.
The fortnightly meetings are great fun and most productive as we share what’s worked/not worked for us and what our goals are for the coming days.
Karen does a good job of inspiring us and finding interesting & helpful speakers for the 11 o’clock slot.
Thank you Karen! X
Sharon from Rye (Decluttering)
I picked up a flyer and decided to ring Karen for a chat and to see what she could offer me.
She has come along a few times now to help me sort out my home. We have worked together on decluttering and re-organising the study, spare bedroom and kitchen surfaces.
Karen helps me to get the job done far more efficiently than I could ever do on my own and is a good motivator and sharer of top tips!
Thank you Karen! xx
Susie from St Leonards (Clutter Club)
The support offered by the Clutter Club is great. We are not alone in the struggle to get on with the job of clearing!
So that hearing about others efforts and successes is very encouraging. Practical help and assistance is extremely valuable to us all.
Learning about planning and execution makes it possible to view our situations differently. Making new “friends” is very useful too.
Philippa from St Leonards (Clutter Club)
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I telephoned and first attended the Clutter Club but I wanted to find out about it as I have gathered a lot of clutter over the years and hoped it might help me.
I found Karen, the group leader, very welcoming and encouraging and found the other members kind and friendly, making me feel no so alone in my plight.
I have enjoyed the fortnightly meetings being very interesting and helpful! Giving me an incentive to declutter and the Mayor’s visit was extremely enjoyable.
Mavra from St Leonards (Clutter Club)
I approached the Clutter Club nervously but have rapidly learnt to love and apprechiate it and enjoy meeting it’s members. It ahs become a welcoming group of friends who meet in a warm and cheery setting.
Having moved to Sussex in my 70s, I had felt very cut off from old acquantances and the club seems to be making me warm and valued contacts and new friends.
So I look forward to the gatherings fortnightly and they are fun and unstressful and are proving very helpful. As I’ve lived my life through books and art works, my little house was hopelessly crowded and disordered by them all but now at last I have gained, the courage and impetus to try and sort and rationalise them and dispose of them usefully and find much more needed calm and serenity.
Danny from Hastings (Decluttering)
Karen was excellent at guiding the clearing up and sorting out of a lot of my stuff.
Her knowledge and experience enabled me to work on my own, and with her to clear clutter, reorganise and rethink how I use a room.
Her insights into gadgets to help store items, hang things and implement systems was fantastic.
I can only highly recommend “Let Stuff Go” if you need help clearing, sorting and organising.
Brenda from Ladies Friendship Club, Little Common (Decluttering)
I’m so sorry that I hadn’t contacted you before, but thank you so much for coming to the Ladies Friendship Club on February 6th.
If that was your first time for doing this, I think you did very well, and your audience was very receptive.
It was gently challenging, and we discussed it for a while after you went, so you may well be hearing from some of our members.
I wish you good luck in your venture.
Best Wishes from us all.
Rose from Hastings (Clutter Club)
I just went along to Karen’s Clutter Club programme Sept 11-Oct 23. 2018, to give her support as a Friend.
I had no idea of the impact of just being there was to have on me!
The programme was structured, which I found challenging..as I Am A Free Spirit…BUT…I found myself eagerly taking part even though I had BIG issues about De-Cluttering.
I like to call myself a Collector but the simple Truth is…I AM A HOARDER!!!
My home looked like a Charity shop with all the Clothes, DVD’s, CD’s, Books, Bric-a-Brac..and Furniture.
We had a deadline to meet, where we were going sell some of our items for Charity.
Panic set in..Panic Attacks, Hyperventilation etc….BUT I DID IT..Amazed myself at getting through THAT Ordeal, being able to Let Stuff Go, and Enjoyed making money for Charity.
After that I found it easier to think about De-Cluttering and found the stress levels greatly reduced. My home now has more space ( in some areas) I am still working on De-Cluttering it, bit by bit, one step at a time, Panic free.
This programme for me…was a HUGE SUCCESS.
HUGE THANKS KAREN!
Hayley from Hastings (Decluttering)
Karen helped me with her services when I was stuck in a rut and needed guidance.
Karen came over on two occasions and on the first helped me to sort out my living room which included a lot of paperwork. On writing this testimonial it has helped me. From what I need to complete some paperwork. We had some great conversations on how to change my mindset to get things moving and take regular breaks so that it wasn’t us daunting.
The second meeting Karen helped me organise my kitchen to a standard where it flowed as I had hit a wall with it. I would recommend Karen to help you out as she is non judgemental and very patient.
Thanks again Karen, from Hayley.
Nadine from St Leonards (Clutter Club)
Have done 3 weeks now at Karen’s Clutter club preparing for a boot sale this weekend. Have been made to feel very welcome and listened to. Fabulous group of people to share this with. Looking forward to what we get up to next week as it’s the last one of this block.
Beverley from Hastings (Decluttering)
I can wholeheartedly recommend Karen with major building work in the pipeline and having to clear my house ready for builders to start, I felt absolutely overwhelmed of where to start. Karen came in with a structure to help me clear, organise & declutter the home, for 3 days she helped me work flat out in a set time frame of totalling 7 hours. I couldn’t believe how much we achieved and all the goals that she helped me set out at the beginning of the declutter assessment we actually completed them all. My home was ready in tme and I have some structure in the building chaos that I would never had done if Karen and her expertise hadn’t come to light.
