Who is Freespace?My name is Hazel Dow and I have a passion for bringing order out of chaos!
Freespace has been running since 2013 and has worked with many clients with a diverse range of needs and challenges. Having previous experience in publishing as a Children's Editor and also as Children's Director for a large Church, I've spent a lot time thinking creatively, managing projects and organising people and objects.
Working in busy office spaces (often full of clutter) I have become adept at working within this environment and helping to transform them into places of strategic order and calm, where things can be easily located and enjoyed.
I love bringing order to a house, office, garden or attic.Being a parent, I also understand the constant acquisition of objects which come with babies and children and which if not managed carefully can easily take over the house.
Recognising the psychological issues associated with hoarding, I've taken a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This training has equipped me with helpful tools to tackle hoarding issues. 'The main treatment for compulsive Hoarding is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)' - Mind, April 2016.
My passion for gardening has led me to offer services outdoors as well as in the home (or online). Having completed a diploma in Horticulture in May 2020 I would relish the opportunity of helping clients to make the best use of their garden or outdoor space.
I'm based in Burley in Wharfedale, near Ilkley, West Yorkshire but happy to travel to other areas, within reason. Freespace is a member of Apdo.
