Hare To Organise
About Natalie Hare
Natalie Hare, Professional Declutterer and Organiser
Hi, I am Natalie, Founder and Managing Director of Hare To Organise Ltd. I live in beautiful North Devon and have two grown-up children. My Daughter, Lauren has recently joined the company and is working to support our long-term clients, whilst my son, Owen is currently doing his carpentry apprenticeship (and will hopefully be able to help me out with some bespoke storage solutions in the future!).
Throughout my working life, I have enjoyed a variety of jobs, training & qualifications, which have ultimately always revolved around people. Pub Management, Teaching, Rehab Management, Health, Social Care & Housing.
I love to be organised and thrive on finding solutions to problems, however, haven’t always been an organised person; As a young Mum, I would often be living in chaos, stressed out and feeling like I was failing at life! Chaos really used to affect my mental health and I would often ‘crash’ when everything got too much. Life is so busy: We are all expected to be superhuman- work, keep an immaculate home, raise perfect children and generally lead a ‘picture-perfect’ life. It’s sometimes an impossible balancing act.
I have learned the hard way with a lot, but I am glad that I no longer live in chaos. I don’t live in an immaculate show home, nor am I a minimalist, but I do know that by having less stuff, keeping on top of things and knowing where to find everything when I need it, I will keep myself in a good place mentally.
Though I have loved working in previous roles, I always felt that I wanted to be able to do more on a practical level to help others. I have spent many years signposting people to agencies, but quite often not being able to find quite the right fit. As my children got older, the time felt right to start my own business, which is what happened in 2018. I decided to train with APDO as well as taking on qualifications in counselling, psychology and coaching to enable me to help support clients in what can often be an emotionally challenging time. I have a special interest in hoarding behaviours and have trained to level 3 with Hoarding Disorders UK. For me, it’s not just about the ‘stuff’- it’s about helping people move forward to simplify their lives. Life is so short; we need to enjoy it and stop being weighed down by physical and emotional clutter.
I meet so many people from every walk of life you can imagine and love every minute of it. I don’t ever want anyone to feel embarrassed to reach out to our service and to be assured that everything is confidential.
