Helena McBride is a complete and total saviour.
If the fact that you have at least ten cupboards that need clearing makes you anxious, but you are unable to act, then help is at hand.
Helena is a motivational whirlwind, slicing through the clutter that you thought you wanted and needed and bringing you back to a simple, streamlined life.
The experience is utterly painless and the sense of relief is huge that at last cupboard doors can be opened without revealing the jumble sale within.
Helena’s best word is “really?” when faced with something you thought you needed, and then it is gone and forgotten.
If you are a hoarder of any description, or have to fit more into less, Helena is your girl. She sources the storage you need, romps through the darkest and dustiest work with great good humour and has been known to utter the immortal words “I cannot wait to get started on that garage”.
I almost don’t want to talk about her in case she no longer has time for me.
Trust me, she will lighten your load, bring serenity and simplicity – and what remains of any disorder will be put into new, beautiful surroundings containing only that which you need, organised where you can find what you seek. How nice is that!

After a nasty fall where I was hospitalised for some time, Helena came to help me transfer from my house to a care facility. I can’t begin to tell you how much she has done for me. She has helped me with my personal affairs as well as arranging for my house to be sold. This has included organising estate agents, auctioneers, solicitors and accountants. The weight she has relieved from my shoulders has been incredible.
She has dealt with every aspect of my transition with integrity, sympathy and efficiency, making the next phase in my life so much easier than it could have been.
I simply don’t know what I would have done without her. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anybody that needs help like this.

Helena McBride is a complete and total saviour.
If, like me, you make piles of everything you need to tidy and sort and then just put it away again… you need Helena.
She will help you make a decision, indeed force you to make a decision, but in the nicest possible way. Then you suddenly find clear cupboards, orderly shelves, space and order and light.
There is no memory of the items that you thought you loved but which are now recycled, sold or given to charity. Now you love the new space you have, and the ease with which you can find things!
Magic! You won’t look back.
I am a really tough case and Helena has worked miracles. She is a total superstar and is a delight to work with. Get her help and it will totally transform your attitude to your space.
But don’t tell too many people as she is unique and we need to keep her as a secret!

Helena came over to NZ on holiday and stayed at my house. She offered to help me arrange my substantial linen room as a thank you. Even with jetlag she couldn’t be prevented from working to make my life oh so much more pleasant by sorting, tidying and eliminating all the stuff I’d had piled up for years and never used.
Thanks Helena, you’ve no idea how satisfying it is for me to look at neat rows of sorted linen once again.

Having Helena over for a couple of hours was amazing.
I didn’t think we would get much done in that time, it seemed such a huge task! However, Helena had lots of manageable ideas which really worked and could be maintained day to day.
I now enjoy opening cupboard doors! It also inspired me to get on and sort out other rooms.
Vicki C, Woodcote, Oxfordshire
Helena organised my home office and she made a task that had become unmanageable and overwhelming for me appear simple and straightforward.
She asked good questions and listened to how I needed to use things and any quirky likes or dislikes I had without judgement. She came up with solutions that incorporated these and then she wouldn’t stop until she had implemented them all.
For me this would have been something that I started with energy but would have quickly became distracted or bored and left the job half done. Not Helena who has the great ability of having the ideas and big picture thinking as well as the tenacity to implement it all. We have since moved house – however, it was easy to transfer her ideas and I am still using many of the original folders and boxes she labelled.

Helena is a natural-born organiser. She sees order in chaos and helps her clients do the same. What appears to be overwhelming before she arrives suddenly becomes manageable with her at your side.
She helped me streamline (and get rid of) personal items before an international move at a very stressful time in my life. Her involvement made me focus on what was really important to keep. She even packed a few suitcases to maximise space.
As a person, an organiser, a declutterer and a calming influence, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
If you are ever overwhelmed by stuff, or just want to sort out your possessions, she’s the one to turn to, unquestionably.
She can even help find new, appropriate homes for your unwanted goods as part of the process!
