Your Story,
Your Journey

Certain behaviours, such as hoarding, are often a way of coping with, and trying to heal, distress.  Holistic Hoarding offers a therapeutic space for you to explore this (should you choose to), so there is a wider understanding of what has led to the hoarding, and how we can support you with this without triggering re-traumatisation.

Training and Consultancy

Holistic Hoarding can work with your organisation to develop a bespoke training package that covers all aspects of hoarding and to empower those who hoard. Holistic Hoarding run CPD-accredited training courses that considers hoarding disorders in a holistic and therapeutic context.

Support Groups & Family Support

Our monthly support groups can introduce you to a new community in a safe, judgement-free space. Members can provide emotional and practical support. We are also setting up a family support group to help those who may be affected by this issue. 

Relapse Prevention & Harm Reduction

No two hoarding situations are the same – We offer innovative and adaptable methods of support, completely led by you. Once our work has finished, please be reassured that you will not be left alone to maintain what you have achieved.  We offer free post-telephone support, and follow-up visits.

Our Ethos

Holistic Hoarding was established after observing the impact of house clearances on tenants, and how this often led to increased distress and more severe hoarding behaviour as a protective reaction to the process.  We recognise that having someone in your home - in what should be a safe space for you - is an incredibly brave step for anyone to take, and we will respect and support this at all times.

Eco-conscious

A key philosophy of Holistic Hoarding is to donate, not discard.  Many people find it much easier to let go of items if they know they are going to be re-homed with someone who could get use out of it.  We have partnered up with several organisations including those working with families in poverty or those who may be rough sleeping to ensure that your items, should you be ready to let them go, will be very gratefully received.   

We will recycle all items where appropriate, and dispose of items in the most ethically sustainable manner possible.
