What is The Declutter Academy Live Training?

The Declutter Academy is an in-person professional Certified training in Ireland. You don’t need any special qualifications or background as it teaches you all the skills and information you need to be able to declutter your own space, help others let go and create a rewarding decluttering and organising business with ease.

The training offers the leading-edge, tried-and-tested decluttering approach that’s designed to create freedom in all layers and levels of your life, beyond your wardrobe, home and workspace!

This live training is a face-to-face course that teaches you the three critical elements so you can do what you love and transform living spaces and lives with confidence and ease:

  1. YOURSELF: Master the art of decluttering and organising and put the heart back into your wardrobe and home
  2. OTHERS: Implement what you’ve learned to help friends and family or paid clients and transform their lives
  3. CAREER: Build a meaningful business that inspires and rewards you

How do I know if The Declutter Academy Live Training is for me?

Ask yourself these few questions

  1. Would you love to start with yourself and discover the best way to finally declutter and let go, organise, shop and create the wardrobe, home and life that inspire you and make you happy?
  2. Do you really want to help friends and family to let go, but you are worried about how best to handle the situation?


  1. Do you love decluttering and/or organising but just don’t know how to start a part-time or full-time business in the area or add these services to your existing business?
  2. Are you nervous that you may not be able to understand or manage the wide range of challenges and emotions that clients experience with decluttering and letting go?
  3. Are you concerned that you don’t have the necessary range of knowledge or tools or the confidence to help clients organise and create the stylish wardrobe and home that reflects their personal tastes and individual requirements?
  4. Are you worried about any of the many different aspects of running a successful career such as working closely with clients in their homes or businesses, managing client expectations, creating and pricing your services, or defining or marketing your unique business approach?

If you answer yes to any of the above, you can find out all about our 2024 live training below!

  • I had, as far back as I can remember, an aptitude for decluttering/tidying/organising.   However, I felt that these capabilities were under-utilised and as a consequence I was not entirely fulfilled in my professional life.  It wasn’t until I found The Declutter Academy training that I realised that I could obtain a professional qualification in the area of decluttering, offer services that really could be used to help people and also be fulfilling for me professionally.  I thought what the training covered was ideally suited to my interests and that I had to be part of it. I was so thrilled someone had built a business in the area and was now helping others do the same.

    For years I had doubted whether decluttering really was something people were interested in as a service so I kept my interest purely private.  While I was an active declutterer myself I rarely shared my hints and tips with others. I hadn’t made any attempt to do any work in the area before I did the course as I didn’t know how a career could be built in this area.  The lovely thing about the course is that I now have total confidence that there is a need for these services and that I’m now equipped to deliver them.

    From the start the course outline and goals were clearly laid out.  Access to all online training material was immediate and material was of the highest quality.  The hard copies mirrored the online content and were always available on the day of training.  Breda could not have been more helpful in sharing all other helpful ancillary materials such as body shape guides she had found useful in her years of experience.

    The course days themselves were always enjoyable and always linked back to real world examples of the ideas we were discussing.  Breda is also very clear on each person developing their own particular voice and approach to providing declutter service and she encouraged to find our own areas of interest within the field.

    The training has given me the confidence to embark on a completely new and exciting profession.  It has also helped me to find clarity in other aspects of my life and to live in a more mindful way, letting go of things that do not serve me.

    Everyone I have worked with has remarked at the noticeable difference in their physical space and how much better they feel afterwards.  Not alone that but as we have applied the training to address the root causes of their clutter they have also benefitted from the fact that their relationship to their wardrobe, household or office has altered entirely.
