Meet the Fibblers
Jo has been a declutterer and professional organiser since 2017 helping people to create, space, harmony and peace of mind by letting go of the things they no longer need. She runs her own business DOTTYMOW and joined Jo Cooke at Hoarding Disorders UK in 2020 helping people who are affected by hoarding behaviours, setting up a new branch in South Yorkshire. She is a member of the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (APDO) and Hoarding UK and has quickly become a shining light in the world of decluttering in the South Yorkshire area.
Jo has struggled with her own demons in life and when she began to learn more about people affected by hoarding behaviours she realised that this was an area she really wanted to specialise in and approached Jo Cooke to begin the exciting process of taking Hoarding Disorders UK to the north.
Previously, Jo had a long career in the printing industry, working in a variety of roles from operations and production management to project director. She has a natural ability to create and implement systems and organise both people and their things. Through her own journey of recovery since 2012, Jo has found ways to overcome her own fears and emotional baggage from the past and has spent a great deal of time supporting others with their issues too. Jo understands that any problem with clutter tends to be about more than just the stuff and is empathetic and understanding in helping people to deal with this.
Sue Murphy is an ILM qualified coach based near Sheffield and specialises in enabling people to fulfil their potential and overcome barriers. She runs Sue Murphy Coaching and also works as an associate with other organisations providing coaching and workplace strategy support, particularly for adults with a range of neurodiverse conditions
She specifically enjoys working with people who are wired differently to what is considered “typical”. People who are brilliant, bright, full of ideas and often utterly baffled because everyday tasks that “should” be easy seem so difficult (this is particularly true for people living with the talents and challenges that come with neurodiversity).
Sue has worked for herself for the last 10 years after a long career in public services, all of which was about supporting people to make the most of their strengths and resources in one way or another.
She has always known that while she is bright, has great communication skills and a passion for tackling social and other inequalities, she is also clumsy, a bit messy and disorganised and easily distracted. This has been a problem for Sue and getting a diagnosis of dyspraxia when she was 62 was a game-changer.
In 2015 Sue qualified as a management coach and mentor and has been working in her coaching practice for the last five years or so, and now specialises in working with people with neurodiverse conditions.
