International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) definition
Hoarding is characterised by the accumulation of possessions due to excessive acquisition of or difficulty discarding possessions, regardless of their actual value. Excessive acquisition is characterized by repetitive urges or behaviours related to amassing or buying items. Difficulty discarding possessions is characterized by a perceived need to save items and distress associated with discarding them. Accumulation of possessions results in living spaces becoming cluttered to the point that their use or safety is compromised. The symptoms result in significant distress or significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning.


Clutter is not always a symptom of hoarding.

People who live in cluttered and chaotic homes could be ‘chronically disorganised’ due to neurological differences. Alternatively, they could be ‘situationally disorganised’ as a result of a traumatic life event.

“Chronic disorganisation is the result of the bad fit between people who organise unconventionally and the very conventional organising methods which exist for them to use.”
~ Judith Kolberg

What people say about us

speech bubble

Linda works with an empathic approach that is rare and valuable. She treats each individual client precisely as that – an individual. Her caring ability is one that is tempered and mixed with a practicality. She shows great respect for the person she is working with as well as their belongings. She treats the people she works with in a humane and, dare I say, loving way.

As a person with long-term physical and mental disabilities, I can say from experience that Life-Pod came into my life as a surprising and positive phenomenon.

Even during the initial consultation when they came to my home, so cluttered that I was isolated and unsafe, Life-Pod showed a comprehension I had not encountered before from any health professional.

To find someone who is able to read my body language and respond immediately to a change in my voice tone makes such a difference. There are guilty feelings attached to hoarding behaviour and we hide or distract from uncomfortable thoughts.

Linda knows about the layers of emotion and pain that have to be picked apart every time physical objects are touched. Her confidence and humour is infectious. She gives practical help and useful psychological techniques, allowing me to find the right language to frame my efforts.

Over many years I have faced problems associated with hoarding, which has led to a great deal of discomfort in my life. In the past, when I have looked for solutions the answer has been to get rid of everything in one go, which leads to more mental health issues in the long run. It is refreshing then to see the process that Linda uses in dealing with the issue of hoarding and disorganisation.

There are many people who don’t understand what hoarding disorder is, or how to deal with it. I am very glad that I am in the position to be able to work with a dedicated and knowledgeable professional who I feel makes a real difference to my life.

You helped me to make sense of things; you have helped me to understand my clutter and how it came to be when everyone else had just written me off. You listened to me!

Because of you, we now understand [the person] a lot more and can support him better because of that.

You helped me part with things I was holding on to, for no real reason but was never able to get rid off.  The fact that you donate them on to someone else makes all the difference. My stuff is helping others and I like that!
