How can a Professional Organiser help someone with ADHD?

Managing the daily challenges of life can be particularly demanding for individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). One way to make life more manageable is by enlisting the help of a professional organiser. If your loved one has ADHD and is struggling with disorganisation, you could encourage them to have an initial meeting with a Professional Organiser to explore opportunities.

Professional Organisers are experts in decluttering, organisation, and time management. Their skills can be especially beneficial for individuals with ADHD, who may struggle with these aspects of daily life. In this discussion, we will explore how a Professional Organiser can assist someone with ADHD, providing them with practical strategies and tools to overcome organisational challenges and enhance their quality of life.

Tailored Organisation Strategies

Professional Organisers work closely with their clients to understand their unique needs and challenges. For individuals with ADHD, this means creating tailored organisation strategies that take into account their specific struggles. This may include creating systems for organising belongings, setting up routines, and developing strategies to address forgetfulness and impulsivity.

Clutter Reduction and Simplification:

Clutter is often a significant issue for individuals with ADHD. Professional Organisers can help clients declutter their living spaces, making it easier to find and manage their belongings. By simplifying the environment, a Professional Organiser can help reduce distractions and create a more organized, stress-free space.

Time Management and Prioritisation:

Time management can be a major challenge for individuals with ADHD. Professional Organisers can teach valuable skills for setting priorities, managing time effectively, and breaking down tasks into manageable steps. These strategies can help individuals with ADHD become more efficient in their daily activities.

Establishing Sustainable Routines:

Establishing and maintaining routines is vital for individuals with ADHD. A Professional Organiser can assist in creating and implementing routines that support organisation and consistency. This might include daily schedules, meal planning, and other strategies to keep life on track.

Accountability and Support:

A Professional Organiser can provide ongoing support and accountability, helping individuals with ADHD stay on track with their organisation and time management goals. Regular check-ins and guidance can make a significant difference in maintaining progress and preventing relapses into disorganisation.

Teaching Organisational Skills:

Professional Organisers not only implement changes but also teach organisational skills. These skills can empower individuals with ADHD to continue managing their lives more effectively even after their work with the organiser has concluded.



The role of a Professional Organiser in helping individuals with ADHD is invaluable. Their expertise in organisation, decluttering, time management, and tailored support can significantly improve the lives of those who face daily challenges due to ADHD.

By working together, individuals with ADHD can gain practical strategies and skills that empower them to take control of their environments, reduce stress, and lead more organised and fulfilling lives. The collaboration between someone with ADHD and a Professional Organiser can be a transformational step toward a more structured and balanced life.
