About us – the Declutter Divas

Allyson

I am twice married with five lovely grown up children and enjoy a happy family life.  I have undergone lots of change throughout my life which give me great empathy with others.

My working life has been mainly in the public sector, where I have gained all my excellent organisation skills.

I am a very organised person, I have helped family, friends, colleagues and neighbours over the years and they have opened up their lives to me.

I have tackled lots of decluttering projects and love nothing more than getting my teeth into a challenging session, getting rid of the clutter and creating a good feel atmosphere, to give everyone that sense of well being, positive energy and piece of mind.

I am patient, caring and have a sense of humour and hold an ‘Enhanced Disclosure’ certificate from the Criminal Records Bureau (Police).

My motto is “where there is a will, there is a way !!”

I am twice married and have a wonderful son and a beautiful daughter, both of whom have flown the nest and are now pursuing their own successful careers.

For many years, family, friends, colleagues and neighbours alike have regularly sought my advice and ideas on home layout, interior design, spaced optimisation and colour popping.

I have held a number of appointments both in the public and private sectors which have had an emphasis on customer focus and understand the importance of identifying the needs of others and ensuring that expectations are met. I am very much a people person, with a bubbly outgoing personality and have developed excellent communication skills. I have great empathy with others and understand how hard making changes to your life can be.

I am well travelled and have lived and worked overseas for 13 of the past 20 years, in Saudi Arabia (3 years), Germany (5 years) and most recently in the United States (5 years). I have lived in homes of various styles, all with very different layouts and of varying sizes and this has helped develop my skills in furniture layout, maximising existing space, identifying appropriate storage solutions and choosing colour schemes.

My motto is “one step at a time, is better than no steps at all !!”
