Hello there! My name is Lois and I am a Mindful Declutterer, Organiser, Conscious Consumer Coach and founder of KILTER home. No super-powers or magic here, Just another modern human being who has been in the midst of chaos and clutter and working that avoidance muscle hard! After feeling frustrated for so long that my own home was not flowing as I would like, I decided to tackle the issue and found my calling in life. That’s when I started to take steps towards setting up my business and helping others become more conscious consumers and feel more in control of their home and possessions.
I felt drawn to put KILTER out there in the world, as I’ve experienced first hand how decluttering your home and space can help to reduce feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and ultimately give you more time to put your energy into what you truly love and desire to spend your time doing. I love the sense of freedom decluttering has brought to my life and family, and I’d love to share that feeling with others.
My background working in the public sector with children and their families along with been a foster carer has allowed me to build my skills around coaching and working with people in an empathetic way. Qualified in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) I help people to raise awareness of what may be causing them ‘blocks’ with regards to decluttering and letting go of possessions. KILTER home is a practical approach but it is also about mindset. That is where the lasting change occurs, the real value and impact.
Decluttering is not about mindlessly throwing all your possessions away. It is about taking the time to really consider what we surround ourselves with and why, and then using this knowledge to let go of what is no longer serving us. It is about learning to discard things with gratitude not guilt, therefore working towards a sense of flow and ease in the place you call home.
As it’s the start of a new year I am really looking forward to spreading the message and ethos of KILTER and working with people on their journey towards a clearer home and clearer head.
