Virtual Professional Organising
What is Virtual Professional Organising (VPO)?
Are you experiencing mental, emotional, or physical clutter, which may be getting in the way of being as organised as you would like? You’re ready to make changes and want to have the support of a trained and experienced professional. You may not feel confident, but you’re ready and willing to start.
I provide virtual professional organising consulting to assist you with organising and productivity projects from the comfort of your home across Australia. Virtual organising is an alternative to having someone come to your home or office to assist with face-to-face, hands-on organising. I deliver this service using Telehealth (online via Zoom or telephone).
Is virtual organising right for me?
Virtual organising might be suitable for you if you have decided that you are
- ready to make changes to become more organised
- willing to learn and to work through the areas that you feel stuck
- prepared to lift or move your belongings
- ready to make decisions about what you would like to keep, donate, discard, or sell
- willing to take action.
Together, we will explore your understanding of the circumstances surrounding the clutter. You are encouraged to express your thoughts, emotions and feelings about items that may be challenging to do on your own.
How does it work?
During the first appointment, we discuss your focus area(s), including objects, data, projects, time, organising and productivity. We will agree on the time of the week that you would like to set aside for appointments.
Each week we will work through a structured format, and I will send notes at the end of the meeting. We maintain contact between sessions through text messages and email, acknowledge the challenges and celebrate your achievements.
What do people say about their experience with virtual organising?
“Virtual organising sessions exceeded my expectations. During the process, many emotions arose, including what the memories were and what they meant now if they are still appropriate in the present or future. I felt sufficiently supported to go through my belongings that had been stored out of the way but needed sorting.
In my experience, the initial recognition of the item brought back a flood of memories and a feeling of delight. Just seeing and touching something could transport me back in time. I then decided that whatever I was looking at had to be kept. If I had someone with me assisting me in sorting through these possessions at that moment, I would have felt pressured and unable to discard or dispose of anything. However, in nearly every case, after a day or two, I could quickly decide what could be disposed of, donated or given away and kept. I couldn’t do this in the first instance, but I could do so after stepping back and taking a day or two of reflection.”
