Confidentiality and Privacy
I provide a professional and fully confidential service. I do not share client information, personal or business details with others.
If you are kind enough to provide me with a testimonial and/or photographs they will only be used with your written consent.
In the interest of personal safety, one person (my husband, John Varley) will have access to my diary so that he knows who I’m working with and where.
All advise is given in good faith and it is your decision whether or not to take this advice given. I take no responsibility for your actions and any consequences of these.
I cannot lift or move heavy items/furniture due to health and safety.
During our sessions I am happy to undertake light cleaning which will assist with the decluttering process but please note that I do not offer a cleaning service.
I have Professional Indemnity Insurance cover with Westminster Indemnity. A copy of my certificate is available on request.
I am member of APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers), more information can be found on their website www.apdo.co.uk. I am registered with the ICO.

I am happy to recommend local suppliers and services; however, I will not be held responsible for their standard of work or for any loss or damage caused by the supplier.
