our courses are formally assessed by impartial and experienced assessors
“When someone says they hold a ‘Specialist’ level certificate from the Institute for Challenging Disorganisation, they and their clients can trust that many hours of education and research have been invested into learning that designation.”
~ ICD, USA
In 2014, after a period of study with the Institute for Challenging Disorganisation, Linda Fay (founder of Life-Pod and Hoarding Academy), became the UK’s first practitioner to be awarded Specialist Certificates in Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding Disorder.
