Juliet Landau-Pope

People often ask about my eclectic career so here’s some background:

My fascination with motivation stems from more than 20 years’ experience as a university lecturer, mentor, writer, editor, coach and study skills consultant. I taught social sciences at the Open University for more than a decade and led workshops personal and professional development.

In 2008, I launched my own business JLP Coach in order to combine practical decluttering and life coaching. I joined the Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers and am now proud to be part of an APDO Board member (head of training), leading the 1st UK training courses for professional organisers.

On a personal note, I live in NW London with two teenagers and a fluffy, white rescue pup.

In recent years, I’ve learned to not only live but to thrive with Charcot-Marie-Tooth neurological illness.


I hold an MA in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University and a postgraduate certificate in academic practice from the Open University. I’ve also studied in Paris, Jerusalem and Cairo, and am a fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.

I trained as a certified co-active professional coach at the Coaches Training Institute, accredited by the International Coach Federation.


I hold public liability and professional indemnity insurance from Westminster Indemnity, am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office for data protection, and have an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) certificate.

In addition to APDO, I’m registered with Life Coach Directory and Tutorfair. In February 2017, I was proud to win the SBS small business award created by Theo Paphitis.
