Professional organiser and declutterer
As our lives get busier it’s hard to find the time (or the motivation!) to work our way through those ever growing ‘to-do’ lists. The Finicky Friend offers a bespoke service giving you the help you need to get those jobs done, so you can have peace of mind and use your precious time to do the things you enjoy.
My name is Nicky. I live in South West London with my partner and totally spoilt mini schnauzer, Dixie.
After a successful career in the design industry and years of helping friends and family whenever they needed a hand (be it with holidays, events or issues around their homes), I decided to put my passion for delivering results into practice and set up The Finicky Friend.
I have always been an organiser, both at work and at home. My life experiences to date have taught me a great deal and I like to think you never stop learning, that’s what keeps it interesting. I enjoy meeting people and helping them achieve results – I’m a friendly face, hard working, discreet, patient and trustworthy.
As a member of the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers, I subscribe to their code of conduct. (Please see Terms & Conditions for further information).
Everyone has a different ‘to-do-list’ but below are just a few of the services I can offer. If there is something you need doing that is not featured below, please contact me and I will see if it is something I can help with or if not I might be able to suggest someone who would be more suitable to the task.
Do you have a wardrobe or a room that ‘just needs sorting out’? Maybe you need help to declutter before you move home or perhaps you’ve been tasked with handling the estate of a relative.
There are many reasons for decluttering or reorganising home spaces – some are emotional and some are simply practical. The process can be a daunting one regardless. As a professional organiser I can provide the support, motivation and guidance to help get the task done. I will work with you to organise your space in a way that works best for you, ensuring you can easily maintain it after I have gone, should you need to.
Decluttering or organising is not about being minimalist (unless this is your particular vision), it’s about:
• making the most of the space you have
• surrounding yourself with things that have either a practical or emotional meaning
• saying goodbye to items that are no longer of value to you
• giving you peace of mind
Venue finding and celebrations
Are you looking for a restaurant for a particular occasion or the ideal venue for your Big Day? The perfect location for a weekend away with friends or ideas on how to create a beautiful dinner party at home? Once we’ve talked through your requirements I will research appropriate options for you, saving you precious time and offering some great ideas to suit your brief and your budget.
With over 20 years as a graphic designer, I am often asked to design those little extras that make all the difference to an event or business. Whether it’s invitations for a wedding or birthday celebration, menus and seating plans for an event, or business cards for your next venture, let’s chat through your ideas and create those finishing touches.
How I work
Contact me to arrange a free consultation without obligation. Every job is different, so our initial conversation will enable us to discuss your needs and outline a plan towards achieving your goals, establish time frames, budget and payment terms.
Payment methods can be flexible depending on client requirements, whether on an hourly/day rate, overall project cost or retainer. Decluttering slots are booked as a minimum 3 hour session. Packages can be negotiated to suit specialist requirements or longer term projects, such as working with bereaved clients. (Please see Terms & Conditions)
I’m based in SW London covering Kew, Richmond, Barnes, Chiswick, Wandsworth, Battersea, Twickenham and their surrounding areas.
Nicky helped me organise the redecoration of my flat. She sourced paint samples, researched furniture and fittings and had some great ideas too. I’m thrilled with the result.
When we finally decided to de-clutter our parents house in North London, Nicky helped us with her 'can-do’ attitude. She got us organised and provided the extra hands and support we needed.
Nicky helped organise my 60th birthday - a wonderful weekend with 16 friends in a fantastic country house and a catered dinner on the Saturday evening. She was brilliant.
Our big day was made all the more special when Nicky designed and produced our bespoke wedding stationery. She really listened and understood our brief, making the whole process easy and resulting in beautiful invitations, place cards, menus, table names and seating plan.
I had the pleasure of joining a weekend away with a large group of friends in the New Forest, all arranged by Nicky. The accommodation was excellent, the location superb, and our requests for horse riding treks, good local pubs and restaurants, en-suite bathrooms, dog friendly accommodation and so on were all met. All we had to do was eat, drink and be merry!
Contact me now to arrange your free consultation, and let’s agree how best to get those jobs done.
