Why Professional Organisers aren't Cleaners and Vice Versa.
What is the difference between a Professional Organiser and a Cleaner? Our friends at Wikipedia offer the following answers:
"Professional Organisers offer a wide variety of services, from designing a functional closet to organising a cross-country move. For homeowners, a Professional Organiser might plan and reorganise the space of a room, improve paper management, or coach in time management , or goal setting"
Whereas the Cleaning definition is:
"The action of making something clean, especially the inside of a house. e.g. 'the housekeeper will help with the cleaning'"
Basically, cleaning involves using physical things like a mop, broom, bucket, vacuum cleaner etc. I don't pretend to be an expert cleaner, but I do have knowledge and ability in the Professional Organisation arena. Professional Organisers each have different areas of interest and expertise. The below list will give you a good idea of the kinds of assistance you can expect from a Professional Organiser:
Help with decision making. Overwhelm can mean people get stuck and need assistance with knowing where to start and how to make good decisions.
Setting up systems that work. Fads come and go, but really good systems are developed taking into consideration your specific situations. We're all individuals so it just makes sense that no one system will suit everyone.
