Hi! I'm Catherine from Tidying Time

I'm a busy mum and wife, who adores cats and thrives on organising and decluttering. I love it!! I live in Crossgar and am a professional declutterer & organiser. 

From a young age, I loved tidying and organising. It came naturally to me, and my mum was the best teacher being a master organiser herself! 

I am a Certified Organizational Specialist™, Level 2 ICD Chronic Disorganization Specialist® and a Level 2 ICD® Hoarding Specialist. I have achieved distinction in a Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Diploma. 

My professional membership and specialised training can be viewed below. I am continually educating myself to provide the best service I can.

I have a BA Hons in Management & Business Studies, and a Distinction Diploma in Events Planning. Both have enhanced my skills in organisation, planning, problem solving, co-ordination, management and system planning.

I have over 15 years' experience in administration, so have fine tuned many of my organising skills including diary management, process planning, file management (paper & electronically) and IT skills. I have management experience from managing an office, a swim school and a retail store. This has provided me with invaluable customer focused experience, display management and working with a diverse range of customers and understanding their individual needs. I enjoy working with and helping people. 

Please get in touch if you need help with decluttering and organising. I'm here to help you!
