What Is Chronic Disorganisation?
The Institute of Challenging Disorganization (ICD) describes chronic disorganisation as:
- Disorganisation that continues over a prolonged period of time
- Disorganisation that negatively impacts a person’s quality of life
- Disorganisation that continues even with repeated self-help attempts
Chronic disorganisation may occur when living with a brain-based challenge such as ADHD, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, TBI and more.
Organisational Challenges of People Living with Chronic Disorganisation
People living with chronic disorganisation can feel overwhelmed by clutter and disorganisation.
Does this sound like you?
- You cannot use specific spaces in your home as they are intended. For example, you cannot use your kitchen bench to prepare meals as it’s overflowing with stuff.
- You have items blocking your path that prevent you from easily walking around your home or office.
- You have piles of stuff scattered all over your home.
- You desperately want to get organised; however, you don’t know where to start, and it all seems impossible.
- You want to discard items from your home; however, you don’t know how.
- You have read all the organising books and watched all the television shows, and you are still struggling to get organised.
I work with people with chronic disorganisation to establish organising solutions tailored to their needs. My organising solutions involve
- Establishing a plan on where to start and what to prioritise
- Breaking down each step of the organising project to make achieving your organising goals possible
- Working alongside you during the decluttering and organising process
- Identifying the proper storage solutions that will meet your needs
- Exploring methods to help you stay organised in the long term
Through establishing efficient organising solutions, you will
- Have organised systems that work for you and how your brain works
- Be able to function in your home and use your space in a way you would like to
- Feel more in control of your space
- Stop wasting time looking for stuff, as you will be able to find what you need
- Feel less overwhelmed and stressed
My approach is to work with you to establish organising solutions that work for you. I don’t implement cookie-cutter solutions; instead, I focus on creating systems that work for you. I love to get creative when organising and come up with solutions that suit your needs and, more importantly, that will last long after our sessions. I’m a member of the Institute of Challenging Disorganization and have completed my Level 1: Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization.
