(verb)

Definition: Creating focus and organisation from muddle using an understanding of one’s personal executive skills profile, achieved with coaching and active decluttering (physical/mental/emotional/electronic).

Questionnaire

The first step to defibble you is completing the questionnaire which is a series of 60 questions. Five of these are focused on each of the twelve different executive functions which we look at to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Initial Session – Clean Set-up

How long does it take? 90 minutes

When? 2 weeks after initial contact

The first online session where we will look at how you would like your physical space to be at the end of the process and how you would like to be in it and review the results of the questionnaire looking at your strengths and weaknesses. We will use a clean setup process for this which means we approach it as a clean sheet of paper with no assumptions about what is right for you or what “should” happen.

all with the executive function strengths and weaknesses in mind to adapt your environment to work for you.

Wrap-up Session

When? 7 weeks after initial contact

Where are you now? How close are you to being just as you’d like to be in your physical space? What have you learned about yourself and your executive functions? Anything you will keeping doing/do more off/stop doing in order to maintain being defibbled?

Check-in Session

Where? Zoom

How long does it take? 60 minutes

When? 13 weeks after initial contact

6 weeks after our wrap up we will check in to see how you are doing and what progress you have made in bedding in those new habits. You could see this as accountability to ensure you don’t just slip back to old ways, or just a gentle kick up the bum reminder 🙂

Then you will be defibbled and ultimately fibble-free.
