Phil Gaughan: Clutter Clearer
Life's a journey, and mine brought me to clutter clearing.
After spending most of my working life in the Motor Trade progressing to Parts Manager I felt very unfulfilled. Then, in 1989 I had the opportunity to try something new and jumped at the chance to take a Community Care Course leading to A-levels and a B.Ed (Hons) Primary Environmental Studies degree. Here I developed a keen interest in the environment, especially recycling.
After spending some time exploring what to do with my life I realised that I love clearing out and helping people. I also have a flare for maximising space and reorganising.
It's changed my life, makes me feel good and I enjoy meeting and working with new people.
To support ClutterClearing I have undertaken and completed (November 2006) training in Hakomi, an experential method of mindfullness based psychotherapy. www.hakomi.co.uk
I realise it's not easy to trust in someone to sort through your clutter, so confidentiality and discretion are a high priority.
